The images of all four are on their main webpage http://www.westsidediscs.com/ and they are also updating their logo. On the images you can see that it is 3 new drivers and 1 new putter.

Most interesting thing to note for me:

The Harp graphic has VIP written on it. As a putter. This may just be a temporary stamp design oversight, but I would love to see a nice overstable, premium plastic putter from Westside.

Even better yet is if this meant that they were to release the Swan in VIP as well.

The release of a VIP Swan would break my wallet wide open.

I've never gotten my hands on the newer BT plastic. I carry 2 Swan2s in the Eco1 that are both on the soft side now, one more so than the other. I also carry a much older Swan that was part of the old Swan1 mold in Eco1 plastic. For some reason, that Eco1 disc is still super stiff. I don't know if they changed what they used to make the Eco1 plastic at some point, but the Swan1 gets plenty of use, but has never gone soft like the newer Swan2s have in the Eco1 Plastic.

I love putting with the slightly soft Eco1 plastic, but for some of the longer throws and drives I'd love a stiffer version. A VIP would fit nicely. The Swan1 mold flies a bit differently (more US) than the Swan2s that I love the most. Swan2 with a longer lifespan, sign me up!

They have the best stamps of any major DG company IMHO. I like the fact they appear on both plastics as well.

From Westside -- "First disc is a distance driver called Westside World, second disc is a distance driver called Westside Sorcerer, third disc is a putter called Westside Harp and fourth disc is a control driver called Westside Hatchet."

So freaking stoked. The Warship, Stag, and Sword are BY FAR the most used discs in my bag. Definitely gonna be tracking these as we learn more. The stamps are so cool. I think my Wizards would love a Sorcerer in the bag as well.

Agreed. My Underworld has caught more than a few eyes out on the course! They should put those suckers on tee shirts.

I'm hoping the Harp is the overstable compliment to my RGL Pure that I can use off the tee. Not as overstable as a Rhyno, but something with good reliable fade. There is some hope for this as the stamp says "PDGA Approved Mid-Range Putter" whereas the Swan only says "PDGA Approved Putter", suggesting the Harp is designed to be used less for putting and more for approaching and drives. Love the Westside artwork!

Yes the Hatchet and Harp have my attention!

Depending on the speed, might check out The World and Sorcerer too.
