Until he mentioned the disc to me yesterday, I'd never heard of it. Approved 2/13/19. Anybody seen or heard of this disc?

The prototype was released right around the same time as the blade(firebird clone) the spear is very much like a Valkyrie.

I have one of the prototypes but it's not nearly as understable as advertised. More like a -1 turn than a -2 or -3 as labeled. I still prefer the newer diamond assassins.

Just got a diamond spear yesterday and it sure does fly well. Mine had no turn up to about 350 after that it turns gently with a very mild fade. I am very impressed with such a workable disc out of the box. I am sure once the new wears off it will be a good hyzer flip straight disc.

That sounds like a US Valkyrie or an OS Road Runner.

I was wanting to grab some Diamond Diablos in the future, but now I might try this one out now.

Diablos are nice. I enjoyed them! I think the spear is a bit fasted and less overstable in comparison
