On the uphill hole, the Patrol straightened out but flew nicely and landed softly in the "right place" to have a long birdie look.

I also had an interesting shot that needed to go around a tree branch, so I threw the Patrol on a hyzer line around it, expecting it to straighten out or glide into the wind. It glided, but held the hyzer line well, and ended up just left of the basket (and went a bit long).

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the Patrol as an understable mid for turnover/anny shots. If you're looking for this type of disc, try a Patrol.
Glad you're liking the Patrol. I thought about picking one up (see post above for my flippy mid addiction) but I'm steadily improving my forehand so I don't think I need a mid that's *that* flippy. It does look fun though in the videos I'e seen. hyzerflip-to-turn with a mid is one of my favorite shots when executed perfectly, and Patrol looks tailor-made for that shot.
