The Vulture is such an awesome disc and has the same diameter as Predators, which he also throws. Makes no sense to me.

The flight in that video looks a lot like a fresh Thunderbird to me. One of the 2 being thrown is obviously slightly more stable than the other, but still. The less stable one looks like the flight of a champ Thunderbird and the more stable one looks like it flies more like a Star Thunderbird. Neither of them looks like a fresh Firebird unless you're talking about one of the less stable runs of Sexton Firebirds.

Paul always had Thunderbirds in his bag, even when he was going back and forth between molds for the more overstable slot (Firebird, FD3, Monster, etc.). He still threw Thunderbirds and Teebird3's. From the video, this looks like it flies closer to a thunderbird than a T3 to me so I'm guessing that's what they're going for.

I don΄t really get that "Dont like the wide diameter of the Vulture" thing . .it΄s 214mm and something like the Thunderbird is 212mm. . so only 2mm difference or 0,0787Inches

I can kinda see where Paul is coming from. I’m not a huge fan of how the raptor feels in hand, and same goes for the vulture.

At the start of the season he was using those Z trackers to pair with his undertakers for OS duties which was an interesting move seeing as it was an OOP Disc that is available in one plastic.

So maybe these are just a rebranded tracker variation that is finally in ESP? I much prefer the tracker rim and they fly more OS than vultures.

Also someone should tell Paul to try out a dang pro line hellfire for forehands! They are super comfy and OS. Better than a pred or raptor in my opinion. He’s already messed with the tsunami aswell.

Thanks for the info, everyone.

I'm surprised it's not a teebird clone of some sorts. Like others said, that is a big spot missing from their lineup. I'm guessing Discraft has something like it coming out in the future.
Discrafts answer to the Teebird has been 20 years in the making.

He's been throwing the Vulture for several tournaments now. Also, the original Trackers flew a ton like an Teebird. I don't know what's going on in this thread...
