Default Vip air giant

Anyone thrown these?
Looking at a 158g.
I throw around 410-420.
Are these still very stable or do the flip a little.

Thanks

At your power they'll do both; a small bit of high speed turn and plenty of fade. I don't throw Giants anymore, but Air Giants were always super fun to throw. Definitely check one out.

I found them to be nearly the same stability as regular VIP Giants, but with more glide. I throw about 350-375.

They fly quite similar to a domey TP Giant, or a touch less stable than a vip or flatter tp giant. The distance gains I had were minimal, and consistancy was not optimal. They did go further with the wind underneath it, but not much else. If you prefer lighter plastic to begin with, you will like the stability, if you are looking for extra D you are better off with a different mold.

I throw a 158 VIP Air Giant. I recently compared it to a relativly fresh Star 175 AJ Destroyer, they fly quite similar. The Air Giant I have, which is in about the same condition as the Destroyer, is more likely to turn a little bit when thrown into a headwind. In calm weather the Giant has a little more glide at my top throwing speed with similar fade.

Fun bombers but I found them to have unreliable accuracy and if not thrown perfect they will turn. Too inconsistent to make the bag.

I just got my AIR GIANT last week and immediatly fell in love with it. It handles great backhand and sidearm. It will turn nicely, but not too much, and predictably fade at the end of its flight everytime. Less power and more distance. This one is staying in the bag.

First impression is a good one.
Still getting used to wide rim drivers.
Both having consistency issues.
Flips about 10 then had big fade.
Thrown a couple drives over 400 with it.

Digging it for side arms.
