Rating HST from 0-10 (0=most turn):
- Warship: 0
- Compass: 2
- Truth: 5
- Verdict: 7
- Pine: 8
- Bard: 10

Rating LSF 0-10 (10=most fade)
- Warship: 3
- Compass: 2
- Truth: 4
- Verdict: 9
- Pine: 7
- Bard 7

Longest throws came from the Truth and Warship - average measured distance was 90m. Throwing them 70% the Verdict Bard and Pine were more or less meat hooks, the Truth goes fairly straight with a gentle fade at the end. The Compass flies damn straight. The Warship does a slight S curve.

I tried to put them all on the same anhyzer line, the Bard and Pine didn't like that too much, the Verdict accepted it somehow but landed almost in the same spot with a strong fade. The Truth and Compass managed a slight fade at the end although the Compass turned a bit more. The Warship never came back at all.

What stood out: The Pine is a lot more like a Bard than I expected and the Compass turns a lot more than I expected (maybe that is why he never made it in my bag), can fly very straight lines though with almost no fade at the end.

The Compass and Pine look very similar, similar rim and rounded shoulder. Maybe my Compass is a freak?

I might stick to the Bard as my main mid, just got a BT Bard as well. Especially since Ricky signed my Pine and I'm not ready to loose that disc just yet.
I was about to post the opposite in comparison to the compass. Isn't the Compass very HSS? While the pine have a US touch like the Buzzz? To me it flies like a Buzzz with more fade. Nice disc.

Hosted a challenge yesterday and the second round I scored as well as I usually do with full bag...
