It’s seems that all the AM Nats players that got them are too busy selling them on Discraft all day Facebook group for $$$.

But, I have read from some Sponsored players that got them and actually tried them they are an OS Vulture or seasoned Predator.

^I thought the vulture is a seasoned predator...

Kinda in that raptor area too.

Seems like a narrow window to fill.

Well, an Undertaker is basically a TL. And in his “building the bag” series he seemed like he wasn’t the biggest fan of the Vulture being slightly larger diameter. I kinda thought he’d be all over the Raptor, since the Predator is also slightly larger diameter and not as close to a Firebird as the Raptor is. Since he has so many years’ experience with the Teebird/TB3 and Thunderbird/Firebird, my initial guess would be something standard diameter in between the Undertaker and Raptor. Suppose we’ll find out soon enough.

Odd disc to make, i mean Dicraft already have 3-4 OS 9-speed fairwaydrivers. . . and no OS 7-speed ( teebird, Explorer type )

There is a big "hole" in Discrafts flight chart between the OS 5-speed discs like WASP, BUZZZ OS, DRONE and the 9-speed like PREDATOR and RAPTOR ( and Undertaker, Vulture )

Something like a 17mm RIM 7 5 0 2 is missing... and that type of disc sells well with other companys

As is the 17 mm rim that is 7 5 0 3 or 7 4 0 3 is missing another disc that many company's sell. As the closest you can get is a Stalker the two common numbered OS fairway disc and the Stalker a not very close disc. 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.
