Really, just think Valkyrie with better glide.
Don't be surprised if it flys as far as your Destroyer on a hyzer flip line.

I think Streets throws a bit farther than I do, let's see if he agrees with this assessment.
Streets has seen me throw a few...do you agree with the above assessment?

You outdrive me...so I think the Falk would be a solid hyzerflip to turnover driver for you. Maybe not quite insta-roller status. I think you could get some use out of one, especially playing in NC.

I'm pushing 330' with a Teebird, picked up a 171g K1 Falk as my first longer driver (alongside a Star Thunderbird and Pro Valkyrie). Holy moly is this thing flippy.

At 80% power, it flips way over and never comes back, sailing 360' easily (this is even with extreme hyzer release). I'm bagging it for one long-range Left-to-Right hole at an upcoming tournament and little else.

Interestingly, at about 50% power and a bit of hyzer, it flies straight as an arrow for 300'+. Makes me wonder if I can dial in the right speed and release angle to consistently see awesome drives - I'll report back after some more practice.

I own eight different Falks. Almost all of them have become more stable with use. Unlike almost every other mold I have thrown. The most stable now barely turns at all unless I throw it into a headwind.

It's true. They reverse cycle. I am sure at some point they would go back the other direction.... but K1 is tough

You are probably right. But as you say, K1 plastic is durable and it will take time. As long as I keep cycling a handful, they will probably survive my ability to make any driver turn...

I have an S line FD that was straight money for a bout a year, and then it became more stable. I had never heard of this until I saw your post, and I'll take that as confirmation that I'm not crazy.

Regarding Falks (which I bought to try to replace the FD), I have two K1's in the low 170's, and they have always been very stable. Not hugely OS, but never flippable. Maybe I bought them at the wrong part of their cycle?

After an hour of field work, the Falk is in my bag. Stupidly long for zero effort - a 60% toss with this goes about as far as a full on smash with my new Star Thunderbird. At full strength and a damn-near-vertical hyzer release, the Falk still flips over a bit and sails a looong way, though this seems less reliable. And it's great for anhyzers, though I'm still dialing in the release for that.

This disc's potential has me really excited to practice with it more. And I'm looking forward to this reverse break-in.
