Culverin is pretty nice. If i wanted to replace my PD cycle in my bag now i think some combo of
Felon/Longbowman/Culverin/Saint pro/Escape from OS to turnover driver, would do the trick, or be pretty close

I thought the saint/saint pro depending on version of stability of the run, is Lat 64's teebird?

Yeah right now its looking like: Felon, longbowman, Saint pro kind of setup for my fairway spots.

If I only had room for all the other stuff that I like: thunderbird, trident, xxx, spark. I guess it can be tweaked according to the course, wind how I'm feeling etc..

I really love the thunderbird mold as it a touch faster, a touch longer and a touch more wind friendly than my pop top fairly os Saint Pro's.

So I imagine if the previous variables present themselves I would have to pull out something to put the thunderbirds in the bag.

I think Westside may have intended the Stag to be their version of the Teebird. We all know that didnt happen though.

heh, I dont know what happened for everyone else. I have a 168g VIP Stag that flies like a faster teebird, and a TP 173g Stag that flies exactly the same. I can hyzer flip them to max distance driver distances and put them on any line, just like teebirds. I like the stamp and the plastic way better though.

I'm sorry not everyone got Stags like these. :'(

On topic : I'd be interested to try a Falchion if I had faith in the numbers. I like some of Trilogy's stuff in that ballpark, and really hate others.

I'll try one, when Trilogy Challenge time comes around.

I can't say I'm super interested, though.

I'll definitely try a Falchion. Why not right? I cant say I'll waiting in front of my computer for the release though. This spot (the 9,6,-x,x) is such an over cluttered slot anyway. If you cant find what you're looking for in whats already being produced... And furthermore, by putting a new disc in this stability slot is going to mean, it gets interest for a very short period of time before its smothered by the sea of other discs that are similar or the same.


I went through four Stags when they were a fairly new mold, 168-173g, two VIP and two TP. One of the TP was an absolute meathook at168g. The others werent as OS but got bitchslapped by any wind. Maybe WS worked the kinks out of the Stag? I wouldnt turn down trying another as I love the WS plastic

Of this stability range, now its boiling down whether you want average glide, or oodles of glide.
And to show just what I mean by the above, I did a search with a given range of stability as I mentioned... I could have narrowed it down some by adjusting the glide, as this is important in the flight of a disc... but still... here it is

I am disappointed by this. Infinite had numbers up previously showing it as a speed 7. I was kind of looking forward to trying it at the Trilogy Challenge then they show this and it is another speed 9 driver... Seriously?

Where I am at, I am just so much more consistent with slow drivers and Trilogy comparatively seems to have a massive holes in their lineups at speed 6/7.

Ish yes. But Id be willing guess that the Falchion is going to be less stable, and maybe even stepping on the toes of a Sidewinder. If thats the case, I'll gladly buy a couple to sample.
