I was talking to the guys at the Discmania warehouse and they told me that the latest run of the swirly s-lines were pretty overatable and that they felt they flew just like the second run FDs. I havenít thrown mine yet to confirm this or prove otherwise. I picked them up as backups for the s-lines I am currently throwing.

The DM dudes are correct. Your new swirlys won't be a good backup for your current s-lines, they will be a more OS compliment to them.

I could use a little more beef in my FDs. It will be a while before I get to the swirlys unless I start losing them like crazy. I bag two of them and have three more regular s-lines on standby. Once those five discs are gone or no longer serviceable Iíll get to the swirlys.

Having thrown mine many times now, the swirly FD's are on the slightly OS side of a standard FD. That said, they're not 2nd run FD OS.

Awesome. I just ordered a swirly to go with my slightly worn S. Hoping they make a great team.

yeah... definitely not second run. they are a bump up from FD's but still closer to an FD than a second one.

I have 2 lightly worn second runs, both around 169g. Haven't thrown them in a while. I'll take them out with a 168g and 175g swirly and report back. My initial impression of the swirlys is they are every bit as HSS as the second runs.

Let us know. I have a handful of FDs but no second runs.

I picked up a small stack of swirly S-Line FD with the huk stamps. I think this is the same run being referred to above.

They aren't 2nd runs, not even close.

They are amazing however. Flatter than normal, really nice and stable, but not OS.
