My distance lineup has been the Sword, Trespass, Giant, Enforcer. I was throwing worlds, but they were a lot harder to power down for control, so the Trespass replaced the Worlds I had in my bag. I throw the Giant more than the Enforcer and use the Enforcer for only what it was meant to do. Control distance hyzer shots 280-380. At my league last night throw, I had some great shots with my Sword, turnovers going uphill and around trees and it just holds and glides to the right. Love the sword for those kind of shots.

Sword is my general distance driver. It flips but is usually pretty predictable and finishes straight. I throw a King for gonzo distance but it's a wild horse, prone to flipping out too much. Trespass is a good complement to the Sword, you can get a little sloppy with it and not worry about it flipping much on you, like a worn-in Destroyer. My Giants are really beefy and generally only come out in stiff headwinds.

HOw would you guys compare the Trespass to the Sword? I lost a beat mid 160s Trespass that had turn into a Straight/slight turn over disc and I am missing it BADLY. Does the Sword have the fade of the Trespass, or is it a bit straighter?

Less fade. It's not too hard to turn it over if you try.

If your beat mid 160s Trespass is like my seasoned high 160s Trespass I would say the Sword is a lot straighter. My Trespass likes a lot of lateral movement now, most (opto) Swords I've thrown have pretty good HSS (not new Trespass HSS but consistent) and love to finish straight forward. You can flip a Sword over but they seem pretty dependable if you're clean or not throwing them into a lot of wind.

I throw a 155 Blizzard Boss, and a 167 Champion Tern, I'm looking for a Westside equivalent for my Tern, or something slightly more overstable. I have a 171 Stag that Is nice and overstable. My boss and Tern i can get out to about 320' or so. My Tern goes pretty straights for me, but I can get some pretty good turnover shots out of it. Would a 170 sword fall somewhere inbetween my boss and tern? I got a 157 blizzard sorcerer just for fun, but it flips for me almost constantly, but not to the point where it crashes and burns, just fades right for a million miles. kinda cool, but not what i wanted it for haha. Granted i dont exactly have the best form, but i do have to throw it on a bit of a hyzer every time to get it to do anything but go right.

Thats kind of what i was thinking, the thing is i really like the idea of it being more HHS, since from what im reading in general the sorcerer is actually more understable than the sword?

or a boatman more of what im looking for? Im getting mixed reviews some people say its flippy, others say its a meat hook

Well, there really is no Tern replacement. It's going to be the best driver made for people with it's power. Sorcerer would be closest.

Swords are nice and I had a fling with them. Biggest problem, to me is, they beat in faster than Innova stuff. Even the VIPs. A heavy VIP should start out every bit as stable as Champ Terns, and maybe more so. And yes, more stable that the Sorcerers I've had. They will not stay there. TP even less so.

Sweet, this is awesome advice. I might take a swing at the sword then, just to see. It sounds like its right between my tern and boss? it just looks like fun to throw haha.
