So I've tried mine. Super understable but very floaty if you hyzerflip it. It has some fade that will fight the turn so it wont just crash but it finished flat or to the right for me. Tried it on field with a light breeze and I had to flip it at almost at 45 degrees and pretty low power for it to flip up and hold a straight line but it would glide for a long time. I could see this being a tunnel shot disc for me since I love hyzerfliping or a very touchy turnover disc.

The problem is with how much I had to power down, I could probably just rip a straight kaxe instead but it was very fun to throw. I would class this disc as 9/6/-3/2, just enough fade to fight the turn for controlled low hyzerflip lasers.

I can't find an edit button so I will correct some info from my post above. The wind must have been stronger than I thought yesterday, I tried it on the course today and it wasn't as flippy as my first impression. It's still a hyzerflip disc for every throw but I could put some more power into it today.

Super fun disc and actually very useful on a wooded course. I had a shot that was a sharp left turn and I wanted to try the Falk so I threw it on a pretty steep hyzer to turn the corner and then flatten out and go straight to get some carry towards the basket. Worked like a charm, I would not have gotten that distance with a FH with that sharp of a corner.

I compared it to a GStar Valkyrie and it had slightly more turn to it. 9/6/2.5/2 if you think a Valkyrie GStar flies to it's numbers.

I recommend this disc, great fun to throw.

Thanks Carl, this is what I was hoping it would be, kind of the opposite of my 1.1. SOLFs.
Ginna have to see how they roll, too!

Got about 25 throws in with this out in the field. Right away, nearest comparison I can think of is a Hatchet. Similar to what was said above; flat release it comes out understable and cruises that way for a long time--just stable enough to not completely burn out. 8 o'clock release is pretty great--flips up cruises and showed a really late turn to the understable side before sitting down nicely. 7 o'clock release--just as was said above, flips up to flat pretty early in flight glides out a long ways (I don't have a big arm and I was putting this 350 with zero effort) and the just kind of fights back a bit to a soft finish. Definitely a disc that wants finesse over power, but certainly capable of some really nice long controlled understable lines. If you like the Valkyrie, Hatchet, etc...you will love this...it's an US 9 speed bomber in K1, exactly what it was advertised to be.

Side note, feels great in the hand. Nice rim, mine had ZERO flashing, and is a really great run of K1. I think perhaps just because the thinness of the flight plate it feels a little more flexy than usual and is slightly grippy/tacky...almost like K1 and K2 had a baby.

Really digging this for sure, will try it out in the woods tomorrow.

Didn't get a chance to roll it, but it was a lot of fun to toss today at a woody 9 hole course.
Effortless distance, definitely deserves a 6 glide rating, I need more throws with it to get it dialed in though.

Got a 172g Falk yesterday. What an awesome disc! I bag a S-line CD2 and multiple FD's but Falk is more workable in tight wooded fairways. Only problem is that the disc is so glidey that it glides over baskets in short fairways

For my arm and technic the disc isn't too understable, let's see how quickly in beats up.

Here I was thinking I didnt need something between the comet and an SCD2. I was going to try one anyway, but now I worry I need to buy 5.

Is there an estimated date for the release of regular run Falks?

I picked up a couple and echo what is said here. I throw 300-325 on most distance throws, 350 on a perfect throw. I really like the Falk and am working it into my bag. Like all Kastaplast plastic, it looks and feels amazing. It flies like a new Star sidewinder, new Saint, or a beat in Star Valkryie. It has noticeably more glide than the discs I named above, I think the 6 rating is about right. It flies very much like a well-loved Star Valkyrie I bag, just a hair more stable. It is just stable enough that I can throw it high on an anhyzer and it will go way right but gives me a gradual fade at the end. It likes to be hyzer flipped. The glide makes it hard to get down as a roller, IMO, and I prefer my Valkyrie for that because I know the release angles better. I might like the Falk as a roller once I know it better, though.

If other molds from Kastaplast are any indication, the Glow Falk is going to be amazing and will fly like a 9/5/-1/2 or 3. I don't know if the trend will hold, though, because most Kastaplast discs are stable.
