Now that the Icons have been out for a little over a week, what is everyone's experience. I have a pair coming later this week and have been wondering how this run molded up.

I'm a little surprised that there isn't more talk on these. Been throwing a 175 Icon a just over a week, I feel like it has the stability of my Sexton Firebird, maybe a little more OS but very similar. I also got a Sparkle Enemy and it is flat and overstable, not FAF Firebird overstable, but it is pure beef. I really like it. For now, the Firebirds stay in the bag but this is definitely a quality disc.

I am loving the enemy. I have a sparkle and a gun metal in the bag. It is everything I was hoping for. Can hit those big hyzer lines with confidence. The stability does not seem to be impacted by wind. Both are great for thumbing, but the gun metal is perfect in my opinion. The gun metal is as close to a faf firebird as I've seen. The boys at Legacy knocked it out of the park with this one.

The Enemy was an immediate addition to my bag. A tick more overstable than my flat topped Felons, which is exactly what I was looking for. I got 2 icon, one at 175 and one at 169. Should slot very well between my PMc destroyer and most overstable PDs.

How does this compare to a discraft flick?

I thought these were exactly what I was looking for. But the overstability really saps the distance off of these. I can throw my felons about 30' farther (bh and fh) with as much confidence.

Maybe I'm just more used to the felon/predator flight path - very high speed stable with an overstable finish, as opposed to the high speed overstability of the Enemy/Firebird/XXX. Either way, switching back to my biofuzion and lucid/fluid felons.

A bit slower slower, a bit more true overstability, deeper wing for more comfortable grip (imo)

Has anyone heard if Legacy plans to run the Enemy in Pinnacle? I'd imagine this mold would be amazing in the new Pinnacle blend they put out recently.

I'm pretty sure I felt up some Pinn Enemys at Legacy's booth this past Sunday at a Supreme Flight tourney....I'd wager they'll be rolling them out soon.

Great! Were they pretty flat? The main issue I have with the icons is the dome. Currently throwing a gunmetal legend, but those are relatively expensive and hard to find. I'd love a stock run of flatter Enemies.

I throw the Sparkle Enemy from 2016 Am Worlds so I don't know how that compares. I can tell you though, that the production is probably going to be in clear Pinnacle. They had a bunch of new clear Pinnacle in everything. Cryztal/Jolly Launcher clear, with more the flexibility of Cryztal. Really great looking stuff.

You might want to buy it in person though, to check the PLH and dome, it being one of the newer blends they're running. (Those clear 5 year Cannons last year were beefier than a Nuke OS.)
