More likely to be between Warship and Tursas.

Infinite Discs lists it as 4 5 -1 0, FWIW.

Anyone got anymore insight into the Sling? Just signed up for our local Trilogy Challenge...honestly not too hyped for the discs, just want to support the club.

Having said that...I want to know more info.

I don't think there's going to be much info about the disc at this point other than guesswork based on the specs. We're three weeks out from the first TC events of the year, so an educated guess would be that sponsor team members will be getting sets to try out within the next couple weeks (probably as soon as DD gets them into the warehouse if they don't have them already). Then the TDs of the first events will be receiving their orders in the week leading up to Memorial Day. At that point, reviews should start surfacing.

my bad, I thought Trilogy Challenges started up next weekend. Our club usually runs ours late in the schedule so I guess I misjudged the timing.

I didnt find the Bard to be that OS, but it was significantly more so than the Warship. So I am kind of hoping the Sling fits between those two, but I have a feeling this will be between the Warship and massively understable Tursas. Which will be okay for the Trilogy Challenge but no need for it in my bag.

Sling is exactly a 0 turn 1 fade. It was surprisingly long. On one of my first practice throws, I got it out to about 330, which is long for a mid for me. It really does have a lot of glide, and the fade depends solely on how much or little hyzer you put on it. It does have a nice size bead on it, so that might turn some people off. Otherwise, I think this will probably be the standout of the three Trilogy Challenge discs. I have not thrown Warship, but this flies nearly exactly like I understand the Warship flies, maybe just a little less distance potential.

Had our Trilogy Challenge today. Weird mold. Holds hyzers and anhyzers really well but really hard to throw dead straight. Most "shaping" discs seem easy to throw lazers with, not this one.
