Those are some sexy looking Pats there Koda.

I just have two right now, Still debating if I want to go TL, Leopard or Patriot as I've got a few of each. Might add some FD's in P-line (if they make them) to test out too. I can never make up my mind it seems. I've been trying to force myself to stick to certain discs though. So far really the Wraith/Teebird/Firebird are all mainstays since I have several of each.

my pinnacle patriot kicked the TL's out of my bag and my icons kicked out the roadrunners.

I switched from Star TLs to Icon Patriots right when they came out. Such an easy changeover.

Oh man. Got to throw these today. Didn't throw the white, obviously, but damn. The pinks are just understable workhorses. Feels soooo good to have them back in the bag. I worry about them getting too flippy too fast, but that's why I have 5 so far.

The pink pinnacle i have started out with some turn similar to most Icons i have thrown. My favorite ones i have found are the blue legend, they are most OS to start out, pretty much just straight maybe a little turn on a harder rip.. haven't tried any other colors in legend though. Hot Pink Icons i have are nice too.. i like my US discs to start out a little more straight and beat them into more of a turnover disc.

that's how i feel too, but i do have some lighter star teebirds that fill that role right now.

forgot how stupidly pinpoint these things are. perfect stability for standstill drives, too.

there was a hole i was struggling to figure out all summer. it's not quite straightforward, this pic is outdated.



you actually start farther back and to the right, so the fairway you're staring straight down in this pic is actually a bit of a right hand drift. you have to have just a very slow and slight turn that holds, maybe flattening back at the end to make sure you stay center fairway rather than turn over too much. i'd been trying some dx teebirds, beaten up gstar teebirds, throwing my tesla or champ tb on an anny and just didn't really have consistent results. i piped it for possible 2 (long putts/throw-ins) with my patriot. so i threw three more for ****s and giggles, each one maybe 10-15 feet apart.

feels good to have these back in the bag. i may just keep my heavier star teebirds and get rid of my lighter *t marked teebirds.

So what's the verdict on the light blue pinnacles?

I've got one at 173g. Reminds me of a seasoned DX 'bird. Really easy to throw straight but still shapes lines. Ever so slight puddle top. It has a couple months wear and has gotten a little straighter.

I'm current bagging a seasoned lighter Icon alongside it for more flip/ turn.

Pats are exactly what I wanted from Leo's but never really found.
