Default Latitude 64 Scythe

It's been floating around the Facetubes for a couple hours, and no thread here yet? Tsk, tsk Latitude fans.



From the announcement:

We have PDGA approval for the latest addition to the Latitude 64 collection of drivers, the Scythe. It will slice through the air like a sharp scythe slices through grass. This is an overstable and very reliable high speed driver produced for the experienced players that need a disc to deliver both speed and control. Pick one up and go harvest some more birdies today!

I wonder how this will be different than the Stilletto, Giants, or villain

Says "high speed" but thats an ambiguous term nowadays

From the pic, the wing doesnt seem to be crazy big, IF, what ime seeing is wing meeting flightplate and not light or something

from the site.

Speed 12, Glide 3, Turn 0, Fade 4

seriously? this is a joke, right?

maybe that's a bit harsh, but it just seems the market is starting to become reeeeeeeally saturated. i could see possibly using it in GL as a destroyer replacement because it won't be 0/4, maybe it will be in opto.

but then again with a glide rating of 3 i fail to see how it would do in that spot. the villain is just a little shorter in all likelihood, the stilletto is faster and more OS. i guess i can see where it fits but we'll just have to wait and see how it plays out.

Cool name, cool stamp, but I dont see how it could possibly be better than the Giant.

I could see a few reasons for this disc i suppose. Giants arent always OS enough, for players who want a smaller rimmed yet still nasty OS disc (assuming were talking about the true meaning of OS and not the Lat/WS meaning ala saint-escape-stag-king etc)
