Yep, crazy amount of glide. Easy to blow way past the basket if you don't account for a tailwind.

Would the Wedge fly like a really beat up Cobra or Stingray at all? I know the Wedge is fast for a putter but I've never thrown one.

Cobra and stingray are more controllable over 200 feet than the wedge imo.

Wedge is weird as hell. The kite is better really for kid/beginners.

Id agree re: stingray 4 sure.

Thread revival time.
I love my wedges. Got the g-star run while it was still around in 162 and 175. They both were getting a lot of use at Sandy Point, and Standing Rock last week.
Great, and functional disc in either weight for very different; yet similar purposes.

I'm assuming low powered, laser straight 200' shots with little fade. Or turning shots that can't fade out. At least that's what mine is good for.

I really like the low profile/thin rimmed feel of this disc.

If you learn its ways, you will be rewarded. The boundary line between dead-straight and healthy turn was a little too touchy for my personal tastes and power levels.

I spent a lot of time in scramble, and both weights were doing work with laser straight scramble stuff in either fh or bh, and flicks I needed to not turn over. They also glide forever.

I used to be a devoted Wedge thrower. I've learned from my mistakes and retired them for Polecats and Comets.

Wedge works for those who use it, I am not one of them.
