It does better for me not going full power unless it's a nice tailwind. It's not underworld flippy though. Yeah it's going to vary for everyone to how they throw so until they make a machine or I can get an adjustable arm I can only give my experience with it. Not many people I play with have picked them up yet either. They were more into the Sorcerer and Harp. It's a nice gradual turn though and very minimal fade. I can say that much at least and it should hold true for most people. People who torque and throw without hyzer will probably not appreciate what it is.

Any comparisons to the Stag? It sounds like a faster Stag to me.

For reference, how far are you chucking these puppies to get the S flight you're describing?
Similar speed I guess but more glide for sure on the hatchet. Less HSS and less LSS as well. I can see it pairing really well with either a Stag, Escape, or even Saint but if you have a beat up Saint that likes to flip you'll start to see overlap.

Anyone with a slower arm and who is seeking any bit of extra distance I think will enjoy it though. The extra glide and ability to take 75% throws and make them good is remarkable. I had a few today that slipped out of my fingers early and I got very little power behind. Where my escape would just hyzer out and stall in that situation for no distance the hatchet still flipped up and glided for a long way very slowly and had just a bit of fade.

I get nothing if they sell a disc to you and I don't do myself any favors by you having one in the bag but if I were to just dismiss it as a valkyrie it wouldn't be an honest review or opinion in my eyes.

Also it's more understable than a champ valk but not a great deal.

I wish I could have a cannon and do so but I can say that 6 glide rating is no joke. Sometimes I think it is but the hatchet, sorcerer, and witness all came out with a 6 for the glide rating and all three of them live up to it easily. They outglide any of the other Lat64 discs I've thrown including the diamond, river, jade, saint, escape, etc.

Shape in the hand is the biggest difference. I never liked how the fury felt. Too rounded on the edge. My own personal ratings of the fury are 8/5/-2/2 or close to it. For the Hatchet it easily meets it's numbers and I'd say you could call it even faster if you wanted. I'm getting as much out of it currently as I do the escape and renegade. Little more with the renegade in certain winds but on open and calm holes I can flip up the hatchet and just let it turn slowly and get even more distance. If you love the fury I'm not saying switch to the hatchet. Stick with want you like but if you get a chance to throw one of these do it. It might settle your internal debate with one throw.

Does seem to be weird how the release are slated this year with the Jade then Witness at the same time as the Hatchet but you'll find later in the summer and as the year ends you'll be saying why are they releasing all these OS molds? It's the year of the driver I've been told.

Also has to be taken into consideration it's truly three separate companies even though a nickname has been created to lump them all as one. The harp isn't understable though! I got to check that out some but I didn't throw it. Just watched my playing partner. He's sticking it for approaches.

Thanks for all the info SteezeOG - been looking forward to this disc since it was announced, and your report has done nothing to dull the anticipation.

Something about throwing a Hatchet that just sounds so right.

No problem. Part of me wishes I would have hated it. I have a lot of time and money invested in Escapes but this will pair nicely and I'll just have to make a little room for it. In the end it will help me lower scores so it's a fair trade I guess.

The friend I played with today was throwing his harp and kept confusing the two names. We both agreed that the Harp would've been the better name for the Hatchet and the Hatchet a better name for the Harp considering their flight. The harp is the OS stick in the ground approach disc and the hatchet is actually the smooth and melodic thrower of the two.

Picked up a light blue 168g Hatchet in Tournament plastic with red stamp while I was over at the DD store today, Steeze is dead on with everything he's said about this disc! I'm also a huge fan of the Escape and always have at least a couple in the bag, the Hatchet is going to pair very nicely with them and is going to kick my Saint's out of the bag. For me (max distance about 425') the Hatchet is a longer and more reliable/controllable Saint, I was hitting 400' on my best pulls with it doing a bit of field practice in the back acreage when I got home from Emporia. My only regret now is that I didn't get another one, although I normally prefer the feel of the Westside VIP plastic over TP, so my second one will probably be VIP.
