Reptilian Disc Golf Raptor: Overstable Control Driver
 
The Reptilian Disc Golf Raptor is the debut project between RDG and Daredevil Discs!

We have teamed up with Daredevil to take their overstable control driver mold to bring you our own flavor of reliability. The Raptor is a speed 10 fairway mold that delivers consistent flights in any wind conditions.

Preliminary Flight #'s: 10, 3, 0, 3

Flight numbers are on par with a C-PD & Firebird. The Raptor is slotted right between those classic molds in stability for my arm (400 ft. of DD power). It will provide an extra dose of stability from a PD or just a tick more glide than a FB.

The first plastic we have the Raptor available in is ArmorFlex. It is very similar to an ESP FLX plastic. For our first production run we will be producing them in a more stiff variant, Armor. We are only able to produce the discs in one color as our run quantities are small. We have devised a method to dye each disc so that we can achieve a few different color options. The test run worked to perfection and we now have some killer colors to pair up with the white.

Each disc is stamped with the amazingly graphic Loteen stamp and features the RDG Proto Egg stamped on the bottom. Thank you as always for your support DGCR. I'm so pumped to be stepping into the driver game :thmbup:

Oh and these are soon to be PDGA approved.

If you are interested in checking out the Raptor, they are available here

How flexy are these? Drone FLX firm(er) or Surge FLX limp?

They don't go limp in your hand that is for sure.
It is more of an impact absorbing flex vs. a floppy disc.

Good Question.
Daredevil produces the "Buffalo" which is a DX version of this overstable driver mold in the mid 160's. I love the flight so I would say that at some point we will try to get the weights down for the Raptor!

You got any insight on why DG Aotearoa's Raptor is on the approved list as Rapter? It's a real Diisneyland situation :) They stamped 'em with an O! Good news for RDG, Raptor is available... for some strange reason.

I emailed them. They said it was a typo on their part :p

Gave me permission to use the name!

It seems like this is the same stability slot that the FD3 is supposed to cover. Can someone compare the two at some point?
