PDGA Approved Disc lists this as a 2.4cm rim width, but it most definitely didn't feel that wide to me. Now I need to go home and check it out again. I'm not a fan of super wide rims. Anything over a PD and I'm not diggin' it these days. If a Destroyer is 2.2cm, 2.4 should be more like a Prodigy driver. I used to throw the D2/D3 a lot and am familiar so maybe I was just crazy when I was feeling the Twin Swords last night. In my mind, it felt more like a domey CD2/Beast. I'll have to check it out more when I get some time. Interesting disc at the very least.

I just grabbed some calipers and my twin swords and a random fresh star destroyer. Star destroyer measured 2.3cm, twin swords is 2.35.

Default Twin Swords

Not sure if anyone here throws the Twin Swords or has interest, but I tried one today in field practice.

I did NOT like this disc much at all. I had zero clue what to expect going in. The flight numbers are 12, 5, 0, 2. 3 of those numbers are correct. However, a very crucial number here is wrong. High speed turn. The Twin Swords is VERY flippy. Out of the hand this thing reminds me of a Mamba, UnLace, or an absolutely thrashed Tern. Its fairly fast, but is ridiculously understable. I tried releasing with steep hyzer and the Twin Swords flipped almost every time, a couple times barrel rolling into a "throller".

Interesting concept for a disc, and the plastic seems decent. However, the Twin Swords is (IMO) a major dud. At 171 g, I wasn't throwing a ridiculously light one either. I had exactly 1 decent throw with this disc, a hyzerflip downwind. It glided well and got good (but not remarkable) distance. Anything calm or upwind was an immediate (and severe) turnover.

Twin Swords: 12, 5, -4, 2: Unless you need a high speed roller, steer clear of this one.
