2.1 height = too domey

1.3 rim depth = too deep

1.8 rim width = good

27.75 rim con = good

So Salient dropped Titan from what I hear, did you keep the same testing team? Last I heard he was the one helping out on that end. I hope to hear more on how they fly soon, I love fairway drivers, speed 8 with no turn sounds good ~

The "testing" teams as you said was DJs deal. I never spoke with anyone on it and I don't believe I had the email addresses of the people on the team. There are a few guys that will be very credible guys reviewing the discs but that's it. There won't be another 20 person "test" team again. The reason for this is Chris did not hear from many people on the team or receive many reviews. I have personally hand picked 3 credible guys to do comprehensive constructive reviews. All 3 guys are not salient fanboys either as I actually stayed away from having people that gave us a ton of support so I could get a more honest constructive review.

Everyone should start seeing reviews and comments popping up late next week and the following.

If anyone has any questions for me that have nothing to do with Vein or Backdraft please PM me or email me.

Vein profiles (Liquid vs Cryo)



What sticks out on this mold to me is the bead. It has almost no high speed turn and a early/hard low speed fade which allows the disc to flex out of a big anny or flight headwinds very well.


Backdraft (Liquid vs Cryo STIFF)


Cryo stiff blend cools differently and results in the lower PLH than Liquid. All of the discs are this way similar to runs of Champ vs Star Terns and the stability is impacted in that same way.

Just some initial thoughts and quick profile pictures. A video is in the works but lots of editing to sort out in 25 minutes of field throws. Backdraft is going to need some more time to figure out specially with the different stability ranges of the two runs. The stiff plastic is not super hard but has noticeable less give to it than either other blend. Cryo might offer slightly superior grip as well given wet conditions. The Vein I can see being a very popular disc with those who like FB/Predator/Banshee/Trident like discs. It is not as fast or OS as a flat top FB but wants to fly a lot like it IMO specially the domey ones with a little raised shoulder.

After some abuse testing there are no big changes to stability or impactful issues on any of the discs. Very durable blends across the board. The liquid plastic seems a bit harder than the FR Prometheus which had an eraser like feel almost to me once glossiness wore off. The current blend does not have that softness after being worn down a but the same nice grip.
