Yes I have been throwing the Scorpius for a few days now

The Zero-G scorpius molded up better than just about any blizzard disc I have seen. It has a nice even dome, nothing too flat or crazy domey.

The 155-159gs should be the closest in flight to a normal Scorpius. They are fairly stable, more so than a blizzard destroyer despite having similar shapes. The light weight Scorpius are straight with a nice low speed fade at the end. The disc shows a good amount of HSS for a lightweight disc.

The disc has a very comfortable feel in the hand. more like a "11.5" rim. It is a tad smaller in wing width than the destroyer and the bottom rim isn't as concave, fairly flat compared to the crazy concave blizzard destroyers. The top is also pretty close to a destroyer but fairly uniform, in that there aren't any noticeable notches or dips(like the TeeDevil top), just a flat top on the wing.

I've been growing pretty fond of my 140g blizz Destroyer, and I didn't really expect to. Just as stable as a normal one, good flight plate, smooth moderate dome. With headwinds around 15mph it gets on the edge of being controllable under full power, though. What sort of winds have you tested the Scorpius under?

These sound sweet. May check them out once they come out in Sirius. Tasty destroyers are frustrating to come by.

I'm definitely intrigued by them... I'm still in love with the OLF and Quasar.

Was pondering going to Star Destroyers, but I can only find Destrulcans in my local PIAS and I'm not going to buy them without feeling them. Might look into the SScorpius when released.

The Sword is a very good Destroyer type disc, the glide on it is quite remarkable.

Caved and bought a VIP and Tournament. Looking forward to throwing them as I've only heard good things.
