I agree that Discraft is rushing the discs for Paul at the moment, the Discraft brand seemed to have a consistency issue not so much with the Luna that they worked through most of the winter to get the Luna mold right for Paul. With the Kong however it feels that the mold was rushed to the point the mold can be beefy or more flippy for a Destroyer like disc.

The non consistency is what tends to happen to a good portion of the Destroyer clones including the Destroyer is they end up not consistent as if that specific numbers on the flight chart after the speed number do not lend for very consistent discs, however the Kong seems to be one of the more consistent discs in this flight path besides maybe some brands that are not really used a whole lot by people and those not really used brands tend to end up more consistent with discs due to how much less in production volume those brands have to do. Also I feel molds past the 11 speed for most brands are harder to get consistent and I am sure there is an actual scientific reason for this.

Discraft is WAY MORE consistent than Innova, did you see the latest video by doth_savek comparing them all side by side? the variation in flight with Kongs was hardly anything compared to the destroyers for example.. go look at the video in the kong thread.

Just think of how much more hype this would have if they didnt make 50 million "prototypes". They had no choice but to limit the luna, but the amount of kongs out there is crazy

I think that's part of the 'homologation' process for getting approval.

It is not clear from Discraft if the Stalker is going oop like people thought in Z.

Discraft focuses too much on the US side for fairway discs, Glide, Stratus and Archer are really similar on the flight chart though the Glide is more an Impact replacement. The Stratus and Archer are really similar discs to the point all that really separates the two molds is the Archer is just a tad faster can be made in premium plastic. I mean it it nice that Discraft will focus on US side for fairway disc, they need at least an OS disc speed 7 for those players that want a good bit slower version of the Thrasher for shots that do not need that much speed but would not be able to get the distance with a Wasp or Buzz OS. Discraft players end up having to use a side brand DGA pipeline for such shots then.
More fake news courtesy of Casey.

The Glide pre-dates the Impact by 3 years. Please stop posting about stuff you don't know about.
