excel rampage

I'm thinking about getting a rampage in excel plastic and I have some questions on the stability. how does the stability change with different colors and how does it compare to other over stable drivers like the d1 or nuke os. how does it handle the wind?

Can't speak for Excel, but my Icon and Pinnacle Rampages are more stable than a D1, but waaaaaay less overstable than a Nuke OS. But in Excel plastic, they will be a lot less overstable. They will probably get flippy pretty quickly. If you are looking for a rampage, I suggest getting a teal colored Pinnacle.

Pinnacle.
The problem is I don't want to spend a lot of money. Otherwise I would just buy a nuke is or a d1.

An excel rampage is so flippy that you can't hardly call it a rampage. The one I threw had been used for 2 rounds, and was katana-flippy

I would hardly consider a Rampage over stable. I have only tried Pinnacle and Icon and they aren't as stable as Champ Destroyers. The Cannon actually seemed more stable than the Rampage. I had big hopes for the Rampage and was extremely disappointed.

IIRC mine were both Protege, but I couldn't agree more. Both 10/10 and both PLHs were silly low. Used them as tailwind hyzerflip bombers for a while (bit?) but they were so damn unpredictable they became 2nd/3rd throwers on casual open holes.

Then I lost both. (didn't search too too hard for either)


I recall Lion mentioning somewhere on here that Legacy altered their Protege plastic (or at least for drivers) at some point in the last while.

They're "speed overstable" and respond differently to each persons power, speed, torque, etc.

A Max/xXx/Drone is overstable, not a Rampage.

I respectfully disagree with your Destroyer comment.

Colors and production times effect (*sp...this one always gets me) the stabilities of both.

ninjaEDIT: For people throwing 350' or under maxD it'll seem fairly overstable [pending good form].

With flight numbers of 14 5 -1 4 it should be pure beef. It is not.

The -1 indicates some high speed turn . They turn a little out of the box with a solid fade.

The lower grade the plastic, the faster it will beat in. Also, the sharper the nose, the more vulnerable it is to having one or two tree hits really screw up the nose. You don't see a lot of people throwing DX Bosses, Destroyers or similar models for this reason.

^^^ Are you comparing Icon and Pinnacle to DX because that is all I have mentioned throwing?
