if they can make a flat demon they will tempt me to try 1. the Quake is similar to that too.

I've heard mixed reviews, so I'm getting worried.

Been meaning to get back to this...

It was pretty windy on Saturday when I got to use it, but I thought it was moderately OS, so I threw flat into a headwind... and it turned over. Thought maybe it was me, so I tried again, stayed straight in a right to left.

Not nearly as OS as I thought it would be. I would compare it to an OS run of flat Pinnacle Ghosts. It's a bit thicker in the nose with a decent shoulder, but still a flat top. It has good glide, more like a Gauge than a Ghost in that respect. I'd say it is most comparable in flight to a Lucid Verdict or maybe a C-line MD4 (not glow)

Personally, I'll stick with the Gauge/Ghost/Gator lineup. There isn't really any room in that lineup for this mold, but I will put their next 2 mids up against my Gator when they come out.

Looks pretty much like a Millennium Taurus in profile with that beefier nose.

That is super disappointing, I was hoping for a Gator replacement.

At the risk of thread drift...

It looks more OS than the Vandal, but still not in Justice territory it seems. There is a third one coming soon as well, the Recluse.

I like the Vandal, it's just not OS enough to find a place in my bag, so I'm waiting on these other 2.

^Forgive my poor post. What I was getting at is to my knowledge [hearsay more or less] this Vandal was thought to be the only overstable mold out of the three new Legacy releases. If not the only overstable mold, then the most overstable. Again my sources are not good. Just curious whether these are both beefy, and that your photos above aren't a Pursuit by accident.


Also, your link isn't currently working?

Gotcha. From what I've heard, the Vandal is indeed the least stable of the three. I definitely don't have a pursuit, I wish I did!

Look still works on mobile for me, but here's a video of the pursuit
