champ daedaluses are a good choice...they dont have as much turn and fade but are real nice gliders...going to try a pro katana again soon

Katanas and Daedaluses give me fairly similar results. The Daedalus glides a little more and turns slightly easier than a Katana. The Katana generally fades harder though.

Both will deliver max distance performance if you can figure out the proper release angle.

picked up a 173 star shryke today...was going to buy a champ boss, but they were very flat and im sure they were bricks..this shryke had a great dome and figured it would fly nice...threw it on a soccer field against a daedalus a few times...pretty similar..they landed on top of each other a couple times...but i got a hint of the big glide in this shryke...a couple throws hit an afterburner at the end and really moved..its fun to have

Domey star Shrykes are great. They have effortless glide and carry.

Shryke and Daedalus are also very similar.

Innova lists the Shryke at 13, 6, -2, 2, and the Daedalus at 13, 6, -3, 2. That said, in most instances I don't find the Daedalus flippier than the Shryke. They're almost exactly the same disc.

blizz katana update... Today it was my best driver I was throwing a little slower and flatter because the T pads were a little wet and I didn't want to overdo it that seems to fit the blizz katanas sweet spot for some reason..gentle turn soft fade very accurate... I guess gives me a reason to keep getting drivers cause they all feel little different from week to week... My opto night is coming today I have high hopes for it

the opto knight was waiting for me when I got home so I went back out to throw it with some others. It wasn't what I was expecting I am not sure I gave it a fair outing.It had a very sharp pronounced flashing that i tried to remove on the tee...it felt alot like my ballista pro and flew similarly...liked a low flight..not much turn light fade..this was down wind...not great glide...crosswind flew like a faster less glidy king..similar distance...beat them both with rhe new shryke...blizz katana was 40ft longer than anything today...go figure... Grass was wet opto is nasty when wet I didn't have a towel so pretty sure I would throw them better in dry conditions and when the flashing is worn off... .. My 1st throws were the best pretty much dead straight lasers.. Being latitude 64 I know this disc iss gonna change and become something else.. I have to be sure to throw the king with nothing but heizer or it finds the Earth quick...

I have 2 Knights, and they're both way flippier than a Ballista Pro. If I get too aggressive they'll turn and burn fairly easily.

The Knight isn't the greatest glider I've ever seen. Most of the distance I get with it seems to be from sheer speed alone.

How far are you throwing it? Anything above 350' you should see some significant turn.

The Knight reminds me of a Katana, but with slightly more high speed turn.

My Opto Knight didn't display much turn either. The furthest I threw it on flat ground (390 or so-- and I have an entire post with story of how it happened), I didn't see much turn out of it. If it did turn, it was like a very baby turn.

I'd compare its stability and distance to a slightly beat 160g Goldline Ballista Pro.
