My buddy got one and sent me a pic vs his D2 he bags, D2 on the left, Falcor on the right.

It’s definitely a new mold, that wing looks very different. More blunt, higher plh, should be a little overstable.

Got a couple throws in with the Falcor (orange 175g)

It flew like a faster Lat 64 Grace, with a touch more fade (Grace has been my go to bomber disc this last year, and I've spent the last few months wishing it had a touch more fade) Got a little bit of turn, super glidey, pushed forward forever, then pushed back left, but didn't dump out. So far so good. Only got a couple throws in, so more testing needed. But I like it so far. The gummy 400 plastic was also money in the cold/rain I was throwing in.

Threw a longer course today, and threw the Falcor A LOT. The disc is awesome. I think the comp to the Grace is accurate (for my orange one). The disc Bombs. The orange has a touch of turn, and a fade of 2.5 seems accurate- numbers 12/6/-1.5/2.5. . The purple one I got with higher PLH flies more like a 12/5/-.5/3. Similar to my fresh rive, maybe a touch more turn right out of the gate. Definitely wants to hook up and get left faster than my orange Falcor. These have bumped the grace outta the bag for now. They go a good 20 ish ft father. Excited to see how they season in. Can't get over how the plastic feels. So grippy. A+ disc.

Is the Falcor supposed to have -1.5 turn or -0.5 turn? I understand variation within molds, but which one was Leiviska’s goal?

Less stable, I believe.
