For me (max distance about 425') the Hatchet is a longer and more reliable/controllable Saint, I was hitting 400' on my best pulls with it doing a bit of field practice in the back acreage when I got home from Emporia. My only regret now is that I didn't get another one, although I normally prefer the feel of the Westside VIP plastic over TP, so my second one will probably be VIP.
Always good to know I'm not crazy. I just can't get over how easy to throw they are and how much glide they get. I too regret not buying more but I'll end up with a few more soon I think.

Just caved and ordered a blue metal flake VIP from Infinite Discs. 165 grams so my noodle arm can hang.

Steeze, I'm not inking it, in case it sucks.

Praying you think it sucks. I would love a sparkle blue in that weight. Gimme!

Diamond has nothing on this for glide. True story.

As for a jade, it's a lot of the same but at normal weights. It just feels right though. The jade is a tonka truck in the hand and the hatchet is something made just for me. Not you. Mine. Order me some. I love you long time.

I was going to pick up one of each-Jade and Hatchet, but this is making me lean towards just grabbing a could Hatchets.

Nice thing about Jade is the lighter weights - I ordered a 159, the heaviest they had at DN on sale, which should be fun to throw.

I think a 168 VIP Hatchet is in my near future.

So it sounds like the Hatchet is falling in between the Saint and the Fury for stability?

The flight numbers on this seem to be pretty accurate. Close to the Fury but glides better.
