Default Westside Boatman and Sword

Anyone toss both of these and care to share the difference in flight between the two. I have a sword, which I like, but I am not sure I want to try a boatman considering they are almost identical other than speed.

help me out here guys!

Thanks for the input, would you consider the boatman to be a Firebird with more glide?

I have both but have barely even thrown the Sword. I would agree with the others though. It's definitely beefy. Not quit Firebird beefy but close. It's also faster than an FB. I haven't beat mine in too much but have thrown it maybe 35 times and it still hooks.

I am only tossing the TPs at the moment. I have been told the TPs are flatter as well so I would "assume" they would be more stable.
