this baby is super gummy. i take back everything i ever said about the rival. i may never find another one like it again, but this is sooooo money. straighter for much longer than the first pinnacle i bought.

it's super gummy and flexible; amaaaaaazing. much different flight than my other one.




and when the light hits it . . . you can see it's actually a super cool green color.



i felt guilty throwing it . . . until i threw it.

so, out of curiosity.

this gummy green FR i've got flies straight with a little turn, a little fade but mostly laser straight. great flier, it's 169g. super gummy/tacky and flexible.

the first rival i bought was slick, a pale yellow, and rock hard. this thing was beefy for me at 174g. straight with fade no matter what, and into the wind the same results.

which one is a better representation of the average rival in pinnacle? the FR that i have, is it more similar to icon?

for me
pinnacle have no turn, laser straight for 80% of flight then slight fade
icon have a lil bit of turn and a lil less fade then above, but nearly identical


is your green FR Icon or Pinnacle? sounds like you have an Icon not pinnacle.
nvrmnd just saw earlier post. sounds like you got yourself a random one. i would suggest getting Icons if you want a similar flight.

Out of everybody's experience, what's the beefiest rival out there? I have a upper 160s softer pinnacle rival and a upper 160s first run icon that I was field throwing forehand today and was getting in the 360-380 range pretty consistently. Discs were turning over a bit and still fading back a little right of target. What's funny was that I was getting more distance throwing the patriot forehand, it'd stay flipped over just a bit longer and was maximizing its distance line.

My first run icon seemed to have a bit more fade at the end, is that normal?

yeeeeeeeeeeah buddy.

this rival is cash money. straight, straight, straaaaaaight. now that i'm getting more confidence in my tunnel shots, i can really rip on this instead of hyzerflipping the patriot. thing is just a laser.

as far as beefier rivals, i had a snot yellow 175g that was super firm and didn't go nearly as far or as straight as my FR 169g. it wanted to start fading FAST.

these are both pinnacles.

Good sparkle has been my beefiest for sure. It "rivals" the 11x CAL Teebirds perfectly IMO. Such a sick disc.
The icon rival has been my favorite fairway since it's release though. Straight with fade, reliable in all conditions. Such a glorious disc.
