I know that this field is pretty crowded with classic molds and hot new comers (FD3 & Felon) but this disc has really been a gem for me. Perfect amount of workable beef.

I have knocked out the beefy mids in my bag for a duo of Scale/Raptor. I can effectively flick both molds in most conditions so my short range approach game is rapidly improving.

I also have been able to get some surprise distance out of the Raptor. A couple torqued over flex lines have yielded some 330+ft rips that are still biting at the end.
wow the old kc's arent in the bag anymore??

I gotta ask, is that like a piece of intestine the raptor has in its mouth?

Yes... yes it is

I asked Lonteen to be "Graphic and slightly Offensive" and he succeeded BIG time.
I love it

Nah I believe my hoarding of the PF# KC's drove up the market. I sold them all and bought a Grip

Now I'm just throwing DX Rocs and a USDGC. Works just as well for a lot less dough.

How are the DXs I sent you treating you? That Sandy Point one was definitely in the money spot for me.

Ahh good catch Bro!

The ArmorFlex still skips if the line is low/hard enough. I've achieved some huge skips on short flicks when intentional. That said, big hyzer bombs seem to stick pretty well. It is the perfect amount of flex for me to kinda control what I want them to do.

Bro: those Roc's are choice. I'm reaaalllyyy digging the old school Xout stamped one. Really beefy for a DX. I still need to get you the hook up for sending those my way

Very nice, exactly what I was hoping. I want to be able to skip a low shot but I want my spikes to dig in.
