Northman

I was able to stop by disc golf world on my trip through KC this week and WOW did they have a good selection of discs. Found a Westside Northman that looked pretty sweet (my last name is North so I felt overly inclined to buy one). Really didnt have much intention on using it too much because the numbers on the disc made it look like it would basically be an orc, which I feel like I have that part of my bag filled with, well an orc.

Got out to the course and gave it a whirl, expecting it to be pretty straight, then have a predictable fade, but DAMN was I wrong. The thing flipped straight right (no headwind to speak of). Its a 175g tourney plastic (looks like a gold line from lat64), but I really didn't like it until I just took it for what it seemed to be, a longer Sidewinder.

Good thing i picked it up though because my champ sidewinder just found its way to the top of a 30ft pine tree and it was NOT going to come down.

Anyone else have find that the Northman is hyzerflip/anny line holding machine?!

i had a couple vip (opto) and would compare them to champ valks with better glide great disc for shaping lines but hard to get to fly straight. the fast faierway ref. is right on IMO.

Depending on plastic and weight I would say Valkish or SL. I like mine.

I have a VIP one that is quite domey. It does glide well even with my noodle arm. It flies similarly to my champ valk that ended up in the drink.

Is the Northman slightly more stable than the River? I realy like the River but sometimes I wish it was just a little more stable.
