Stamp seems made for you.
River, for me, flies flat with slight left fade at end. Underworld thrown flat goes right and finishes right. there was some wind and I really didn't get chance to put it through the paces so can't comment on glide and distance yet.

Wouldn't the Underworld overlap more with the River more than anything else? An understable Fairway driver that glides for days. I've noticed a lot of Westside's ratings seem to be slightly changed in order to make it different than Lat 64 discs. I haven't thrown a Stag but it could potentially be a useful hyzerflip disc.

Either way, that is one very nice looking disc Skullboy has there.

Assuming you meant the Underworld there, that's been my experience with the River, too: depending on the severity of the left-to-right angle I'm throwing, it can be a fight to get it to hold that line. Obviously, getting better helps, but the Underworld piqued my interest primarily because it seemed like it would be more consistent in this regard.

Good point about the need to force the River to hold that line. You have given me something to think about now in regards to picking up an underworld. Trying to keep my bag simple with few mold options and force myself to learn how to work what I have. Instead of looking for a disc to make a shot. If it wasnt for my urge to try out new Lat and Westside plastic this would be alot easier.

The Stag is an overstable(ish) speed 8 driver.

edit: I have to edit mine because you edited yours! First time I read it you had Stag and not Underworld. Bah!

Hah! I almost corrected that, too. Too many WS discs to be excited about!

I say just beat them Rivers in a little and you will have a nice turnover disc. Find you one of the flatter ones and it won't take much to get it to where there is no fade.I like sticking to as few of molds as possible. Right now I use the River for all my fairway driver shots. The only thing I may need sometimes is an overstable fairway driver in the bag. Was looking at the Stag or possibly the DD fairway driver. Gonna wait on more reveiws of both first. I wish Latitude/Westside would release about a 12 speed turnover driver. I just don't dig the Bolt for that slot. Too nose angle sensitive for me.

Would Leopard be an appropriate comparison?
