The fact that there's a non-limited version should help keep the disc out of the obscurity that a 500ct run brings, thus boosting the desirability of your 1/500 edition. And we raised the price ~30% to a standard collectible range ON the release date, with a week's notice, after the bulk of the run of 500 had sold in pre-orders. Your collectible will retain its value and get you laid... those two concerns were at the forefront of this project.

I mean, isn't that why we're all here?

It's a bit different flight from the STD because the wings are different shapes. Amp is concave, where the TD is flat to convex. Its slower than the STD. It's more like a used P-PD than a TD

the s tds i throw are the older stiff blue ones, seem to be a bit beefier than some of the other s tds. when you say it's more like a p pd, are you meaning that it flips a bit and still fades at the end on a flat throw? the td i throw now does that, if i release it on a hyzer it'll lock to flat with minimal fade, and an anny release pretty much holds to the ground.

I guess my sarcasm didn't work over the Internet. I was trying to pre-empt the usual whining and moaning. Shoulda put the little winking guy in there, but I was in a hurry. I'll most likely throw mine and destroy their value anyway.

Got all four of my amps today, first thing i did was set them upside down and test the domes.

I found that the 166g Orange has tad a bit more dome than the red and 2 white ones.

the red(171g) and whites(169/175g) are all exactly the same, which is great.

I hope the orange 166g is an overstable freak

It will be a while before i can test them out however

Also tested PLH and found that the red one is just a micro notch higher than the rest. The others are exactly the same.

Seems like i got a good variation.
