Had my raptor out yesterday in some 20-25 mph winds and it never even batted an eye. On shots where I expected to maybe see some turn the raptor just stayed dead straight and still finished with a nice little hyzer. The armour flex plastic does not beat in near as fast as I thought it would when I first got it. It has been in the bag for a little more than a month and there is no noticeable change in flight characteristics! If anyone has a beat in raptor that is a little straighter I would love to get my hands on one!

I am looking forward to the firmer plastic though. Curious to see if it makes it a little more stable.
I'd imagine it will.

The ArmorFlex Raptor is basically a Daredevil Mammoth I believe and if the new plastic equals High Performance then it would basically be a Sabertooth which Daredevil rates as more stable.

I definitely agree that it's more OS than the flight chart indicates. The Raptor is by far my most OS disc in the bag. I got one of the pink goober dyed discs in about a week ago, have used it 4 rounds so far.

Whoa nelly is this a meathook! I bought the Raptor to replace my Scythe as don't have a speed 12 arm (feels like I'm gonna blow my shoulder out throwing the scythe) but the scythe is good for headwind shots nonetheless.

I'm not giving up on it after a week but I'm having a tough time using the Raptor for much of anything. The plastic may just be too floppy for my liking ( I can practically roll this disc up like a burrito).

No its based off Daredevils High Performance plastic.

These came out flatter and a little more grippy than HP however.

When will those Amber Raptors be available? I am quite keen to try a slightly stiffer Raptor now that warmer weather is nearly upon us...

Awesome, I dig HPP. So, naturally, I should dig Amber. Thanks for the info.
