I have a 2018 Icon Rival that's really firm. It's a nice more stable counterpart to my pinnacle Rival.

My two Icons (Patriot and Phenom) are pretty firm, like slick firm Star, but not as hard as what you seem to be describing.

How do the Protege Rivals on the pro shop fly? How do they break in?

After three years since taking the Rampages out of the bag and allowing my Outlaw cycle to cover all overstable to stable distance shots, I'm been full bore Rampages this year and digging the extra 20-40' for stable straight max D. Rampages require good form but for stable straight go far, they kick ass.

This dome at the shoulder makes for more glide and 10mph headwind no worries

I don’t get any more distance out of Cannons/Rampages than Outlaws. They all fly about the same distance for me. But I struggle a little more with nose angle and aim on the wider rims. Outlaws have my max D slot on lockdown for now. Pinnacles in the upper 160’s consistently bomb.

Also same. My neutral to flippy ones are that color and 168ish, while I have other runs covering everything to stupidly overstable (5year run/stamp being the most overstable). The Howitzers (translucent non 5year run) and Legend fit nicely in between though I very seldom actually carry four Cannons.

Recently been following my signature and don't feel the need for a maxD driver since I rarely ever play open courses.

This is my Cannon. Pinnacle and it flies very true to the numbers. I've been throwing it powered down for control shots also. It moves fast, so lower tighter shots have been money recently.
