^^ Striker has less HSS than the FD2 for sure. Even on powered down lines, the Striker still had some turn. The FD2, when you really get on it, maybe has half a tick of high speed turn? It's definitely not as much as the Striker. Striker is also longer and has much more glide than the FD2.

Practice, natural ability, and magnets.

This disc is sick and instantly made my bag after one round. I felt like I was getting a small amount of turn with a hard fade, like shockingly hard. Really reminded me of a shorter Eagle X. My numbers I experience were 7 4 -1 4.

Any comparison to a Champ Banshee? Sounds somewhat similar, but DiscNutt123 is getting turn, and ain't no turn in a Banshee, baby!

The mold is actually a Banshee bottom and Teebird top. When I threw one I didn't get much turn out of it, but it has some solid, consistent fade at the end. It's like a shorter PD. This is gonna be a very straight disc into a headwind.

After spending some more time with the FD2 this weekend, I know that I'll no longer need to hoard 2nd run C-FD's.

The FD2 is really an awesomely workable disc and I can already see it beating right into the equivalent of a fresh 2nd run. I was throwing big, slow S-curves with it, forehand flicks, hyzer bombs, and it was handling them all with relative ease. It also powers down surprisingly well for an OS disc. I don't carry any OS mids in my bag (unless you count the Zone) and found that the FD2, powered down, could hit the same lines where I might be inclined to use an OS mid.

Awesome disc!

I have an embarrassingly large stack of 2nd runs... Really jumped the gun here...
