Looking forward to building an all Westside mini-bag. Most their drivers are too big for me, but this next batch will give my Warship some company.

ManU! I got a Jones for more specs! Get any more work with the Stag? Comparisons? Distances? Anything!

surprisingly I don't get to do a lot of golfing at this time of year
last weekend I mostly used the Saint (which absolutely bombs...for me...with a tailwind)

I think I only got one throw with the Stag this past weekend
slight headwind
not a long hole...maybe 300 feet but the hyzer line to get there makes it a tad longer

anyway, I threw a nice gentle/flat hyzer

held the whole way, hit the gap of 2 pine trees that front/protect the basket

couldn't have been far off an ace

I ended up a good 50-60 feet past (probably got good skip on the packed snow)

it does flat to fade and sweeping hyzers (fairway distance) really well

the Saint on the shot described above I would have expected to flip to flat and take me off the line I wanted

I'll get some more golf in this weekend and see if I have more opportunity to throw it so I can post more views

I hope that tides you over for a bit

it's an excellent disc

edit:
I thought I'd add this

in further comparison to the Saint
I threw the Saint in a tailwind and it went about 360+ish with essentially no fade...straight flight, thrown flat
the same shot with the Stag would likely have been shorter because of the fade which would have kicked in sooner and brought the disc more to the left...RHBH
the fade kicks in sooner on a Stag and is sharper than a Saint

Sounds kind of like a boatman with more glide.

So ManU, I am currently throwing Opto and GL Saints for my main drivers, and need an overstable compliment. The Stag sounds pretty good, but the MVP Shock sounds like it would fit the bill too and it's already available. Have you thrown the Shock? If so, why should I wait for the Stag?
