Wasn't the Boatman already in that bracket of numbers? Boatman 11/5/0/2 vs 10/5/0/2 for Sampo.

Pretty similar - just threw a Boatman for the first time last week.

I think the Sampo has more serious beef though.

Yikes, my Vip Air Boatman is more OS than my FR 175g Outlaw, if Sampo is even beefier (assuming that's what you meant), ouch.

I haven't compared it to the Boatman, but VIP Sampo is definitely less OS than a C-PD so it's quite workable.

Boatman was there, but those flight numbers were the typical Trilogy BS. Every single effing Westside and L64 disc I've thrown was MUUUUUCH more understable than their number indicated. The Sampo is the first that is actually a touch more on the overstable side.

Very unique disc to their lineup. It's really what I wanted the Saint Pro to be.

Have VIP on the way. Hoping it compliments my Felon.

Throw a Trident, or a Saint Pro, or a Sword. Or an XXX, or Riot, or Blitz, or a Sorcerer.

I think Saint, Stag, and most of their stuff is true now - maybe early runs were inconsistent, but I'm not seeing it with the discs I buy.

Actually I was just thinking, isn't it pretty close to the Northman? Northman 10/5/-1/2 vs 10/5/0/2 for Sampo.

I think the Northman is Westside's Saint clone, as it DD's Escape.

I've thrown 2 Sampos, and they are OS. Northman is merely stable.

Maybe the production run will be different.

I found the Sampo to def be more OS than my boatman. Boatman flies like an understable destroyer, while the fluid sampos were more Thunderbird like.
