I wouldn't say it's worthless in the wind, either. When I have that shot that's a little short of a true distance driver, I'll throw the glitter Saint on a bit of hyzer and watch it ride straight.

I can kind of see where the Fury will fill a gap, but I can think of other gaps Lat64 needs to fill first. But it is springtime and, as such, it's new disc time!

The mace is not as overstable as a drone.

And the did come out with a mid that is crazy overstable. They just made it for DD. I don't consider the suspect to be a putter.

He also has 2 maces and a few pains.

I have a 166g Sparkle Opto that is about as stable as I imagine they'll get. It will flip in wind and I can make it turn and burn if I mess up my release. But flat release it goes very straight. I have an RGL Saint that qualifies as "distance understable" for me. It has a little fade at the end, but always finishes right of my release.

And I hope you have voted on my vendor thread Andrew!

The first GL Saint I started using flies like a Valk now. From a hyzer release it swings pretty wide to the right before fading, but my Opto still doesn't flip.

I don't think I'll be getting a Fury, on account of the pile of Sidewinders I already have.

I swear either the discs fly different in sweden/finland or they completly lied about the numbers. I didnt think a 0 3 would turn/flip so much.

Prodigy did it to themselves. I agree that they are getting flamed when west side is not, but west side didn't come onto the scene with a bunch of "pros" and claim to be the next big thing. Then they proceed to do what they have done.
