Ooh, nice! Their ‘measurements’ are nearly identical. I’m interested... to the point I might start shopping Corvettes, if I know what to look for (plastic, dome, wing, etc).

I guess it depends what you really want out of a Corvette. I've thrown stars and G*s. Stars tend to be a little beefy and flat. G*s have more turn and dome.

G* Corvettes are one of the longest discs I've ever thrown. They fly like longer, slightly faster Shrykes.

What about Pro? There aren’t any G* in stock (that I have found yet).

I haven't thrown a pro Shryke or Corvette. I reckon they'd both be really long and flippy.

I was deciding between a Turn and Archon for a long bomber with Valkyrie like flight and only a few plastics of the Turn were not as flippy so I went with the Archon not knowing the Champion which was the first plastic the mold was out in was a dud for normal use with a 1-2 in glide, well that is officially the first US wind disc I have seen in my life. Then the Star Archon was nice longer by about 20 feet sometimes 25 feet Valkyrie. Both were ~170 grams so weight was not the issue.

I don't have a Delirium, but I do have a Dimension.

I could make this happen. I have lots of star and champion Bosses.

I haven't thrown the Dimension in a while. From what I remember it's pretty overstable.

TWM, how would you compare the Catalyst to a Ballista? Pretty similar?

Funny you mention that. I actually had a gold line Ballista out there the same day I threw the Catalyst and Shryke.

I feel like the Ballista hyzerflips better than the Catalyst. It has about the same amount of high speed turn, but does it in a more nuanced, predictable manner.

The best way I can describe it is this: The Ballista actually turns a little easier (with less effort) than the Catalyst. However, the Catalyst is more likely to stay turned and not come back. Where the Ballista will fly a nice S curve, the Catalyst is more likely to keep bombing right and not try to fade back late. The Catalyst performs poorly when you mash it at 100% power. The Ballista does fine at 100% power with a hyzer release. Both discs are understable, but the Ballista simply flies more consistent lines. There isn't as much randomness in its flights.

I've thrown quite a few Ballistas over the years, and liked most of them.

Ballista: 13, 5, -3, 2
Catalyst: 13, 6, -3, 2

Almost identical numbers, but different for the reason(s) I mentioned above. The Catalyst will out-glide the Ballista, but the Ballista turns and fades more consistently. Distance-wise they're very similar.

If I had to bag one or the other it'd be the Ballista. I just have a better feel for them.

When it comes to Ballista Pros, those damn things are SOOOOOO inconsistent. They can be super flippy or almost grossly overstable. I've really come to distrust that mold. They remind me of Katanas in their inconsistency.
