I've been using VIP Kings for about a year now and just got an Elasto. It's a little less stable than my other max weight Kings and flies a lot more like the ones in the 160s I used to have.

Anyone else finding them less stable?

I tried an Elasto King as my first foray into the mold. A friend who is a keen King thrower noted it appeared more stable than his Tournament or VIP and picked-up an Elasto of his own. I think it may still come down to the dome? Mine is fairly domey - not huge, but definitely not flat.

In general, the thing I've liked with the King at my altitude (1047m) is that it glides a long way on its transition between turn and fade and really grabs some bonus D. Headwinds do cause me to seek safety in other molds, but in its element, I find it a consistent bomber. I also really like the feel of the Elasto in hand.

Yeah, dome seems to make or break this mold for people. Domey Kings are a lot less touchy than flat Kings. Your form has to be perfectly sterile to keep flat Kings from flipping out.

Soooo, there's a tilted sword King? How can you order one? I mean, how can you know which sword type of King you are getting?

Most of the newish ones I have are the more jagged beard and tilted sword one. Some have been more stable but it’s not uniform.

Tilted sword Kings were a stamp from the first run, which for me have much more glide than the second run. Since tilted swords are basically OOP, ebay is your best bet or I have had luck with trading people in my league.
