WestSide Warship and Giant

I really like the stamp on the Giant and Warship. I can't wait to try them both.

I wonder where the Giant's place will be between the King/Sword/Boatman.

Any theories or inside info?

On Giant stamp it says BT Plastic.. What's that, a new mid grade line?

No inside info from me, but I'll be interested in the Warship, especially if it is more stable/understable and Comet like.

There's a brief description of BT plastic at the bottom of the page on your links. I hope it's like pro or X!

Currently on there site it says the Giant is an overstable driver. Halo like or faster Boatman?

This quote taken off there site a while ago, I don't remember if that was before or after the King arrived:

"Our current plan is to make two or three more molds. First is a very understable midrange driver called Westside Deer (Westside Hiiden Hirvi in Finnish language). Second is a stable midrange called Westside Warship (Westside Pursi in Finnish language). We are now talking of releases no earlier than spring 2012.
In case we release a third disc after these two, it is likely going to be an ultra fast wide-rim driver called Westside World (Westside Maailma in Finnish language). We try to innovate this disc to be faster than anything before. It is going to take a long time before this driver hits the shops, so do not expect anything soon. "

this thread had me excited that the discs were ready
but really it's just that they show the stamps now...which are cool

Warship
so more Fuse like or more Pain like or more Core like?
thoughts?

Giant
I'm guessing more Halo like but it might be even newer
I can't confirm but maybe someone else could...does the Boatman have a similar wing profile to the Blitz?
I thought I saw a profile of a Blitz recently and it looked quite similar to the Boatman

Yeah, I can agree with that.
