Default The Valkyrie, a discussion.........

I have searched far and wide for 2 minutes and have found no thread dedicated to the Valkyrie. I love the valk, it is my go to understable distance driver (I throw a well seasoned older star valk). I also use it as a roller disc in the rare occasion that I use a roller. Today I recieved a 5x JK Valk and I am very excited to see how it throws. What I'm looking for someone to answer:
1.) What are all of the different types of valks (plastics, runs, ect.)
2.) Which ones do you throw?
3.) If your a hater, why the hate?
4.) And any other opinions would be welcome.

Im not a hater but i don't throw it anymore for the simple fact i can flip more stable discs now. Before, however, I loved the valk it shaped beautiful lines and got nice, easy distance. Theres only a couple holes at my course that if I did use the valk it would need hyzer-flipping to not turn too much and go OB. I prefer to throw flat on bigger d with something more stable and know its always going to fade.

I throw a very stable current run and a slightly flippier 4X. I love their flight paths on 400+ ft bombs (even they need a pretty open field to get their full potential). I've aced with one. It was my first disc. I have a Valk addiction. My club mates make fun of me for it.

Before I got a couple blizzard discs, I was loving a Pro Valk+ as my max D driver, big turn, reliable fade, lots of glide! I have several champ, dx, star, and pro Valks in various forms.

Not a hater just don't throw one. Perhaps someone who does can tell me what it would do over a Lat64 GL Flow? Cause if they're similar maybe a Valk is a cheaper replacement.

I think the Flow might be a bit more stable in general. I've only throw the Flow a couple times but it help up to some decent power; power that would have flipped a Valk. Just my two cents.
