Default Patriot

I finally got a Pinnacle Patriot 171g, really nice feel to the plastic, got a little firm in the cold weather, but when dried off still gripped well.

I was really surprised by the flight. It takes a clear turn early when thrown level or even mild hyzer on a moderate release.

But it moved over US then held straight, and had a sliiiight fade back. A couple of times with full power it turned the whole flight, but wasn't a major turn and burn. My first throw I was able to park a shot 300 ft straight ahead

It's definitely Understable, From all that I was hearing I was expecting more of a slow-roll over US flight, but this was like that of a Valkyrie, but certainly a slower disc. I was able to pipe a few straight shots with a hyzer release and have a nice Full anhyzer flight that set up a nice Birdie 2 on a fairly tough hole.

I liked this disc a lot. It may be the US fairway driver I have been searching for.

Agree with the #'s 7/5/-2/1

nice disc

Thanks, I did a search, and search page by page and didn't see a Post on it, other than comparisons.

But yeah, I was happy with it, made some cool shots I haven't been able to hit in a while.
