Cool stamps, I've always liked their imagery very good looking discs. Would have guessed the Hu would be a Kitsune by the image.

Does anyone bag Yikun? They review well but I'd like to know how the plastic grades.

I have had the premium plastic Dae and the Yu in the bag for months. The Dae has beat in to a very straight, long, driver with a late forward fading hook (380-420ft). The Dae plastic reminds me of a stiffer star plastic,
The Yu is a meathook of a mid very stable with a hard dump of a fade at the end (250-300ft). The Yus plastic is clear and reminds me of new Z plastic from discraft which I do not see beating in ever
Hope this helps
Gary

I agree with Gary. The Da'E (Dragon line) is comparable to Lat.64's Gold line. The Yao (Phoenix line) is comparable to Z plastic.

Thanks fellas, I may try on of them. I think infinite has most of their molds.

I'm a big sucker for OS drivers what is the Da'E most comparable to? Is it Ape
OS or just Destroyer OS?

Think halo from lat 64. It is longer than my destroyers. If you can throw a destroyer you will get the D'ae out there straight for 90 percent of its flight with a sharp forward fading hook of the last 10. Anything under350ft it will simply go left...
