Necro-bump...

I've recently added the Diamond Shaman to the lineup and I'm very impressed with it. It's so straight and controllable. The one thing that really surprised me is how far it flies for a putter. My usual max distance for putter throws is 250. With the Diamond Shaman, I'm able to range that out another 50 ft. without sacrificing control.

Shaman is a great upshot disc; use it with a modified power or fan grip, it flies really stable. I'm working on seasoning a soft shaman for slight turnovers, though it works good for anhyzers fresh. Almost can't wait til it's time to pick up a diamond, maybe a HD shaman is in the works too hopefully

How does a current run Shaman really fly?

The numbers on the disc is 3/3/-1/1 which would indicate a straight stable putter. . BUT
The numbers on Infinite Discs says 3,1/3,2/-0,5/1,2 which would indicate a slightly OS putter

Then Inbounds says Net -24% . . that΄s really US. . even more than a Magic
And DG Puttheads flight chart have it as one of the most US putters out there

So i have a Magic, Voodoo and Wizard. . .hoe does the Shaman compare to those as a throwing putter?

Depends on the plastic. Base plastic shaman is going to be similar to the magic. I would say slightly more stable and a little faster. Diamond reminds me of a beat up envy in flight.

I only throw the diamond version. Now, there are two distinctly different flight patterns for the Shaman in Diamond plastic. If it's the clear diamond plastic, they tend to have a little more fade on the end. If it's the opaque Diamond plastic, then they tend to fly extremely straight.

Reviving this thread to preach about this disc. I picked one up today (176g SSS) and this is a game changer. Everything about its flight and hand feel are perfect for how I throw. It's extremely straight and will hold any line that its put on. At higher powers (270+), it will have a nice slow turn over for me and I'm thrilled about that since I've had a hard time finding a flight like this out of a putter. I'm going to have to get a small stack now for back ups because this thing is money.

I'm glad to know someone else is out there enjoying this mold as thoroughly as I am. I bought a pair of diamonds on a whim while course bagging and instantly clicked with them. This my sound a little overly nostalgic, but it kind of reminds me of the first time I bought a Wizard. Gateway captured lightning in a bottle, again!

I wasn't a fan of the baseline Shaman. The Diamond is very nice though. It's got just a little drift and fade. Maybe -1/1. But really less then that. Just a few feet right and left on a 300 ft throw.

Yeah, they're completely different animals. I can see why they miss the mark for some players. Baseline shamans get a little squirrelly when powered up. I like them for powered down short approaches, though.
