To my knowledge they are up to a 3rd prototype. When i talked to Rico at Mad City he said AT LEAST 4-5 prototypes before he approves it ready. The first proto was ultra flat and super overstable beefy, the second was closer to a firebird in stability but domey with a lot of glide. The third one i saw posted in a video on facebook looked like a good mix between the first two.

They are shooting for 11x Firebird type of flight.

Cool, thanks for the info! Then I guess we have to wait a couple of weeks or months before a release What does the 11x version really indicate?

faf is what Rico said he wanted so its going to be flat for sure, forget what he said was wrong with the first prototype but i think the PLH was just too high on top of being so flat made it a tank. I liked the second proto when i threw it though because it had a big dome but still beefy it was different from anything out there.

The ones i threw are different from firebirds i have in the bag in that they go into the fade harder and cut down quicker once they hit the tipping point, a firebird will fade hard but it gets some lateral movement during the fade.. if anything that makes the Enemy easier to predict laterally and distance wise.. but less distance potential overall. I dont use my firebird for distance, only spike hyzer placement shots and forehand upshots when i need the predictability.

How does this work? Aren't the molds crazy expensive? I just don't understand how this fine tuning works. ????
