That's awesome! Can I ask how you go about making your own golf disc? I honestly have no idea how it works.

Does the different top really make that much of a difference? I've had some sunken-flight plate Wizards in the past and didn't notice too much difference.

How does the high speed flight compare to the Wizard or Chief? The Wizard is my primary driving putter. I love how HSS it is, but sometimes I want something that will work side to side more. You can't really throw flex shots with the Wizard since it just locks in on an angle and goes. The Chief almost did it, but it's not HSS enough in the end.

I would definitely be curious to try the Scale - if anything just to see how they beat in. The Wizard that I had in my bag with the most sunken flight plate was from a test run Dave made around 2011 and it did seem more overstable than usual at first, but that didn't last long and it beat into a very straight flier, then eventually developed some high speed turn long before any of my other Wizards. So it did start out a bit more stable, but also got flippy faster than the rest.

Preliminary Flight Review:
EXACTLY what we wanted. The Scale is a beefier wizard in all respects. It's not a meat hook but it does pull out of any anny that's not an intentional roller. I'd say the HSS is about as rock solid as I've seen a baseline PnA. The design if the disc is quite gyroscopic with a ton of weigh distributed to the wing. With that in mind, you can really tell the fade is delayed but abrupt. Instead of a forward fade like an MVP disc, when it finally slows, it drops. I think you're going to like this disc if you want a more OS wizard out of the box.

The thumb contour is also really nice. Forehand grips are comfy and tight. I can't wait to start doing some big runs of these.

Relatively safe bet when half of the disc is WIZARD!

All I had to do was design a top that I know folks have been begging for and BOOM, we've got a disc that I think will click with players.

The top isn't sunken though. We have a thumb contour near the wing but the top is pancake flat. I don't want folks expecting a yeti. These are flat!

Congrats on the mold! Curious...will adding the scale affect the flight at all, or just the grip?

If we so decide to texturize the nose, it'll only affect the chain gripping ability. We don't plan to add texture in the grip area like a few other manufacturers.
