Default Seer

The Westside Seer is a driver designed to improve the game of players with smaller hands and lower power. It is an easier to grip, narrow rim understable control driver with good glide and control. The Westside Seer will be released in VIP and Tournament plastics on 1 March 2015.

Flight numbers 7, 5, -1, 2

Official specifications
Max weight 176.0 gram.
Diameter 21.2 cm.
Height 1.8 cm.
Rim depth 1.1 cm.
Rim thickness 1.8 cm.
Inside rim diameter 17.6 cm.
Rim depth/diameter ratio 5.2.
Flight plane thickness 2.0 cm.
Flight plane to rim plane distance 1.6 cm.
Rim configuration 42.25.

Will definitely be trying this out against a thief and witness when it come out, 2 great discs IMO.

westside needs to release a more overstable fairway driver. i feel like the stag is already a great straight fairway with hardly any fade.

And I agree, something around speed 8 with great HSS and a 3 fade would be legit, but they would have to make it different enough from the felon to release soon I would think

Both my Stags (175g TP and 168g VIP) have good fade on them and take a ton of power. I can get them out really close to my distance drivers and they still fade. They seem like a slightly more stable teebird to me.

They could definitely use a Felon/Firebird though. I would think that would be a bigger priority than splitting hairs with the Underworld.

Anyway, if you throw Trilogy and you want an OS fairway, by all means, get yo sef a Felon.

Inconsistent mold? Even some experienced testers compared early runs to Eagles and Teebirds.

The Seer definitely sounds interesting. Kind of like the shallow rimmed Jade but produced in heavier weights.

I had a TP Stag that was pretty understable. I replaced it with a VIP, and that has been much closer to the flight numbers.

Seer looks like a nice disc for my arm. Not as understable as an Underworld.

It will be interesting to see where the Sampo ends up. I'd wager between the Stag and the Seer, just straight stable.

Eric McCabe apparently described it as slightly understable.

Seems kind of redundant if that's the case, seeing the Seer is slightly understable.

Maybe he meant understable for someone with his power?

In theory, -1 / 2 is not understable. I expect the Sampo to be a little faster, maybe a speed 9.
