Looks like a 3rd run, hard to tell from the pics. I would love to get my hands on one of those.

NS2 is really good, much better than the recent C-Line runs for me. Outside of the 2nd run I have never thrown a C-Line I liked. All my S-Lines are more stable than C-Line. Guess I hit the load on a good S-Line run.

It is barely pearly and the pearls just looks like scratches on the picture...
Shoulders but almost flat top, must have been really stable fresh since it flies like a perfect FD at this stage.

Since I'm a hyzerflip dominant wooded course player, the NS2 is even more stable than what I would call perfect but with that mild dome it might just be the best feeling speed 7 I ever held. Once beat in enough to get a slight turn on a 350' hyzerflip, I'm quite sure this will be what most wish the NS1 is (I love the NS1 for slow small turnovers).

I love the 3rd run. They were the perfect feeling FD's. Just slightly gummy, a nice gradual shoulder, and flew just slightly more overstable than the standard C-FD flight. Stoked that I still have a small stack of them so I don't have to try and hunt down similar feeling/flying replacements!

I'd agree that you probably nabbed one that is right in the sweet spot for flying perfectly.

I've looked back a few pages and think I have my answer but would like some confirmation.

I have a NS1 and an NS2 in my bag.
I got the NS1 used (rated 8/10 but that was super conservative). The NS2 I bagged fresh.

The 2 discs do not fly similar. The NS1 is hyzer flip to flat and even to turnover. My NS2 on the other hand is, in comparison, quite HSS. It might flip flat (note I'm at about 3300 feet so altitude plays a role here).

Are the NS1s noticeably less HSS than the NS2?

My only other FD experience is what I would assume is a current run C-Line that is quite domey and very HSS. It can, to some extent be thrown on a baby flex line. My NS2 is somewhat similar. There is zero chance my NS1 would come out of an anhyzer. On that line it's turning right all the way.

I ask because I'm curious if I should be adding another NS1 to my bag for understable duties (the alternative is to beat up my NS2 but we don't have heavily wooded courses that would allow that to happen within the next 2 years).

As an aside I'm also really liking the FD2. The step from the NS1 to NS2 to FD2 in terms of stability is really nice. Same shot and hit with just increasing HSS and fade. The FD2 should get some more appreciation...it's what I wanted my Star Eagle Ls to be but they were just too OS. The FD2 feels and flies like an older opaque flat PFN 11x Champ Eagle L.

^^I picked up a like new NS1 in a used bin and it's definitely on the flippy side for an FD. Dude at the shop said that's pretty typical for the NS1.

My c-line FD didn't work out for me. Too slippery to backhand.

Check out the latest run of Luster FD's. They're the flippiest run I've found in recent years. It might be the immediate replacement you're looking for.

I have a couple extra Lusters I'm willing to sell or trade in the 169-172g range.

I'm not sure if that's true for all of them, though. I have three of the recent run: Two that are definitely less stable than a typical C-FD, but also a purple Valentine's Day stamp one that's nearly as stable as NS2.


There's always S-FD, too, if you want something that'll turn and finish straight.

sFD and cFD flies pretty much the same in my experience. sFD just breaks in quicker
