When my Raptor gets here tomorrow, I will give a comparison to Thunderbirds, Firebirds, as well as Ti Undertaker and Stalker. I might have a T3 I can throw if my buddy shows up.

Very much like a flat PD. Less overstable than a firebird, flatter and straighter.

I think VictorB is correct. I expected a “mellow” Firebird. I got a “mellow” PD. It’s a nice disc. Flat and great to throw FH (which, I think was the goal due to Predator issues on the FH side?).

It didn’t make my bag.

I have a Z. I threw a swirly ESP, too. Small sample size...

The test flight I threw was the most overstable disc I’ve ever thrown. Way stronger than my pd2, fd3, various runs of P.D., including the new c line clear beefcake PDs. It’s a shame there is that much variation

So after a bit more than a one day test, my Raptor is very close to the numbers DC gives but with slightly less glide. Anything I asked of it, it did well, except FH rollers, but the disc isn't FAF FB flat, and that is probably the reason for that. It doesn't really fade, unless given hyzer or 15'+ height, otherwise it flies very Teebird/Thunderbird like, but with a solid 0 HSS. It's almost as long as my Undetaker, but more OS, almost a Undertaker OS in flight and like a FB in feel but without the little ridge on the outside of the wing.
