I usually refer to it as a Cheetah with a modern wing because of the speed.

I only have thrown one relay. It was basically my plasma crave (which I LOVE) so it's not in the bag. Should take it out and throw it more. Never gave it much of a chance.

Mine is from the circuit and that day was not a great day for a disc like the Relay. Windy day on a longish course that is known for swirling wind. So my first impressions of it were not great. I was still messing around with an Inspire at the time also so it took me a month or two to really gel with it but once I did, it became one of my most thrown discs. I got forced into using it one day at a tourney on a medium length woody course after throwing my Inspire into a muddy creek. After a couple holes I threw the most ridiculously straight 300ft flip to flat tunnel shots I've ever thrown. They really really excel at that shot and eventually develop a bit of turn that also makes for a really good shorter range turnover disc. Mine is pretty thrashed now but still does a really nice flip to flat shot as long as I don't overcook it. But also does some really sweet anhy lines and powers down so well, that I don't carry a US mid anymore.

There are a couple MVP discs that you need to get thru that initial break in phase before they really start to shine. I think the Relay is one of those.

Wait wrong thread...

I really like my Relays fresh and light I got a 155 that's really sweet!!! My fresh 165's need some tree luv, my first 165 PFN is also sweet but in a different way.. It won't hold the tunnels uphill as well it has just a touch of gyro turn at that 70 percent mark.. Just enough to annoy me, on the flat with a 15' gap it's still awesome! Or just a 20' gap.

I swear, does anyone throw a F***n Drift and a Relay!!!!??? I don't think so, it just keeps sounding like the drift is the touch more stable Relay. I think most of this community is opposed to single molds. Kinda like Tursas to Comet.

As far as relay OS.. Am I the only one that thinks it means a touch more HSS and LSS, like really people a Servo!? That might be a FH Relay or Banshee but man! Mine was a pig. I don't get you inernetoos

Marm-O get off your ass and make a sweet design for a Relay so you can get one for free you cheap bastard.

Wait I forgot:

I might consider the Drift if I were playing more open courses. I find it needs a bit more room than most of the wooded courses I play demand. The Relay carves the lines a bit cleaner and while it doesn't have as much glide, it can be sneaky long once you figure it out. I also like it for FH because I can release with tons of hyzer for a nice hyzer flip to straight shot. That has been pivotal in tight areas in the woods. The Drift is a bit harder for me in these situations. Still a great disc but the Relay/Servo/Resistor combo is solid.

Played with a dude who threw a Drift a lot yesterday. He throws 300-350 and uses it mainly like I would a midrange from 200-320 seemed to have a good bit of turn and a decent fade.
