So my comparison will be against my orange 173g Teebird... and all I can say... its the same **** for me except you get more glide with the stag... nothing more, nothing less. It's an excellent straight glider for weaker arms that need that extra length.

I threw it a couple of times in in 20-25mph headwind (around 10m/s) and it was all over the place for my 400ft forehand... but then again... so is the teebird.

My best explenation, to not complicate things... It's like a teebird with extra glide... out of the box, I think it has a tad more turn for powerful throwers. Less power, you wont see a difference.
exactly what i expected. anther tbird, rival, ascent, slightly tweaked.

Haha..you're right threevok, not about the wet Willie part....I'm deplorably average and was just trying to see if anyone of my skill level has thrown it yet. Not tying to *directly* insult anyone. I know there's lots of players of my skill level on here who are dead honest about it, just seeing id they've thrown it yet.

Baw ... I was hoping for a straight early flight with a HARD hook late in flight. There seems to be a lot of fairways that have high turn/high fade or low turn/low fade or high turn/low fade, but very few with low turn/high fade unless you run to the extremes of Banshee/Trident/Whippet, etc.

I really wanted this disc to fit an imaginary spot in my bag, it may not be so. I swear this is the toughest slot to fill.

You might have to settle for powering down a seasoned distance driver. That's what I do for that sort of shot. Or an Eagle x.

I went for a round yesterday I was trying out my Stags a bit and I really like them so far. It was pretty windy, so have yet to try them in calm conditions. They are very very glidey. Therefore I found the fade to be more subtle than "3" as how it is descriptioned. I think with glide like that you can't have such a strong finish. It always did fade though.
It seemed to be good with moderate headwind. It's pretty much what I expected, just that the fade is not as strong as I thought but it's there.
But again, I don't have a lot of experience with them yet but I do like them a lot.

How does the stag compare to a striker?

I agree on the fade not being "3".. Dont know if its because of that glide you dont experience an instant fade... Instead you get a slow transitioning forward fade.

Dunno how how it compares to a striker... But i find describing flights hard and comparing... I would say its almost like a cross-over between a saint and a teebird if that helps. Teebird dominant in flight characteristics (first 50% of flight) and saint in distance + fade (last 50% of flight)... Does that make sense?
