yeah it was. Both S line, but one was a little flatter and the flatter one was flippier.

Damm. My experience in with the new production runs, they had pop top dome and flew like seasoned s-valks.

The good old flat (close to the first runs) were just dead straight. Would fight wind. It was like a saint that could fight wind. Great discs really. Seasoned into long controllable bombers.

I'm bringing this thread back from the dead to ask a question. I throw FDs and I'm currently trying to decide between a Sidewinder or a TD for the longer neutral to slightly US slot in my bag. I'm finding that my Star Sidewinder is only getting me an extra 25' of distance over the FD. I have a D-line TD that flies longer than the Sidewinder, but I got it in that plastic to see if I should invest in the mold, which I did with a C-line. The C-line is mostly flat and kind of flies like a CD2 in it's current 9/10 condition. I'm definitely going to keep doing field work with both the Sidewinder and TD, but I'm wondering if anyone has experimented with both and can shed light on how these may beat in. I'm pretty sure we're going to see a new run of STDs, so I'll probably contract one of those when they're released too.

TD is almost exactly a Roadrunner

The TD does not have the Roadrunner's glide. And it's not a total surprise about the relative FD/Sidewinder distances: my Sphinx doesn't get me all that much more distance than my Leopard3s, but even a small difference can make a big difference on the next shot.

I've tried the S-Line TD and both the Star and Champ Sidewinders (and Star Roadrunner) and in all situations I recommend the I-blend Sphinx (allegedly a Valk top and RR bottom). I definitely get more out of a Sphinx than I do the TD.
