They are concave and straight, like the earlier runs. I have thrown the domey Icons which seem to be more stable like the Pinnacles. Not sure how old the yellow ones are but it is different plastic compared to the concave whites and reds I have

How are the Patriots for S-curve line shaping type duties? When people talk about the more stable Patriots are they referring to an increase in HSS or LSS?

I rely heavily on my Pin Rival for it's resistance to turn and subtle fade and am looking for a curvier compliment.

Patriots to me are best used if you like 2 types of fairway shots - flat spin shots, or straight hyzer flips. They aren't as good at being flexed out or forced anhyzers

Sounds a lot like how I use my QJLS. I do like that Legacy plastic though....

The yellow 168s are the gummies. They're also flatter than the rest.

I saw a 164 Pink Icon and it was crazy gummy. Never have seen one that light before.
