Here is a video of the Notch with lines tracking the disc flight: https://youtu.be/CcmH-JHlm5E

Another video comparing the Hyzerbomb MOAB, Innova Firebird, and Vibram Notch:

Head to head to head, the MOAB is a much slower, beefy disc. Faster than a drone/gator/etc, but more OS. The Firebird is a firebird, the gold standard of OS fairways. The Notch is not as OS as a Firebird, and on avg. I can throw it about 20-30 feet farther, while the MOAB is consistently 20-30 feet shorter than the Firebird. Notch does not bite quite as much as the Firebird.

I think you hit it on the nose there with your analysis. (FYI: had trouble viewing the embedded link on DGCR, but the direct link worked on youtube.)

Discussions about disc selection are always dry, because you really need to qualify your statements with how much power you have, what you're expecting that slot to do for you... Notch is great for lower power throwers who want to start throwing an overstable fairway. Many people already have the Firebird in mind when you start talking about overstable fairways, so those individuals are going to be let down by the Notch. I haven't been let down, because it's really helped me iron out my forehand form, because it's slower than the o-Lace or Solace, which translates to consistency for me.
