Question Flying Squirrel

Did a search and read everything but- I'm wondering does it finish out in anny fashion or does it fade back a little like the meteor?
Also, what kind of (min and max) distances are you guys getting?

Im hoping itll finish anny like a Stingray and perform this way in the 175 to 250ish range.

Thx.

I throw a 1st run Flying Squirrel with a control grip 200-250, flat release holds anny the whole time. Tilt the release to adjust as needed. I force it to fade left on a 283' straight hole too. The 2nd run Flying Squirrel will glide longer so I normally use it as an S curve to 318' or a long anny to about 290'. By the way, I use the 150 class Flying Squirrel for overhead trouble shots and for my two aces.

Yes, I carry three in my bag. I like to know what I sell.

I love it, one of my favorite discs. I couldn't throw a meteor for sh*t, so I picked up a flying squirrel and never looked back. Thrown flat, It holds a nice anny line for me to about 280ish. Thrown on a hyzer flip, it goes dead straight about 300. Get one, you won't regret it!

A couple years ago my friend, his girlfriend, and I all got first run flying squirrels in our players pack for a tournament we played. They all flew different. My friends was the only one that flew the way it was supposed to. Mine was way stable and hers was a little less stable than mine. I might not have given it the time it needed to break in but in my honest opinion the GL Fuse or a seasoned flat top roc does it better.

I like it, but I am finding the plastic too flexible now that the weather is warmer. The other issue I have with it is the inside rim tends to grab the dirt hard and causes the disc to run off instead of sliding. It holds a line like few other discs though.

Grabbed a Squirrel off the MP to see if I can learn to hyzer flip stuff a little better. Just curious to see who else is bagging one of these right now and how they like it...

I got one off the marketplace as well, but for my dad. He throws everything with massive hyzer, so I'm hoping it goes nice and straight for him.
