For everyone saying Paul used Firebirds, you're wrong. Paul didn't like using that disc, so I'm guessing he didn't care about the Raptor.

I'm surprised it's not a teebird clone of some sorts. Like others said, that is a big spot missing from their lineup. I'm guessing Discraft has something like it coming out in the future.

But it will be interesting to see what Paul makes of this disc, i feel like the OS 9-speed is something he has been uncertain about even with Innova.
He sometimes used the Sexton Firebird, or a regular Firebird. . then he has used the FD3 and back to Thunderbirds and back to FD3 again. .
And he didnt really like the Vulture either. .

So it will be fun to see what this new disc have that none of the discs he have been testing in the past didn΄t

Yes and no. The vulture has a straighter flight than a predator, but definitely gets pushed around more by the wind. That's mainly why I just stuck with predators in stages of wear down to FR undertakers.

My friends that got a couple of these new discs at USADGC say it feels similar to a Teebird3. So if it's like 7/5/0/2 or 8/4/0/2-3 I think it would still slot in the lineup nicely. Kind of the gap that the FR undertaker sits in for me (which obviously is no longer in production)

Paul used an FB a lot but in his ITBs it sounds like he never loved it. Tried the Monster and many other discs mentioned above as well. Must be a certain thing he wants and can’t seem to consistently find.

Honestly I'd much rather see specifications and measurements than just subjective speed numbers.

IF it΄s a 9 5 0 3 that΄s just odd. .. the RAPTOR is one of Discraft newest moulds, and it have those numbers. . .how many 9-speed OS disc moulds with the same flight can they have. . .one for each pro?!

TB3 or a Thunderbird attempt that came out too stable is my guess.

It's probably shooting for a thunderbird clone to pair with his Undertakers. I watched him throw some Vultures at 2 Days in May, but he did mention not liking the wider diameter in his BTB.
I think they're aiming for a more normal approach. The Raptor is thinner than most discs, and the Vulture is wider, so maybe this is more traditionally shaped.
