I need a hyzer flipper and don't have all winter to beat in a Legend Patriot to the Bandit's out of the box level of understability.

I put a silver legend in the bag hoping it was a bit more stable than my hot pink icon and they fly similar, the icon has a touch more glide but its also broken in more.

Hope the pinnacles come out more stable, but i doubt they will, Legend stuff is usually more stable.

Regardless, i like the stability of the bandit its very useful for mega hyzer-flip bombs and sky annys.

I would like to see a speed 9 firebird-like mold in the future to round out a speed 9 line up.. could beat in an Icon Firebird and cycle those like candy !!

My bad, my Bandit is Legend not Pinnacle.

Also, after a few field throws this windy morning, the new 168 blue legend Bandit is a full tick less HSS than my heavy Opto Fury. I'll rate the 168 Bandit 10/4/-3/1, my slightly seasoned opto Fury 9/5/-2/1, and my seasoned backup first run opto Fury 9/5/-3.5/1.

Like a black Trans Am, rolling so fast you can't catch it.

I LOVE my Bandits.. i usually carry 3 of them ranging from flippy to not so flippy .. can cover anything from rollers and giant anhyzers to dead straight and actual hyzer shots.. i need to find some more of the dark blue Icons .. its the beefiest Bandit i have thrown and i love it!! doesnt show any turn just lazer beam with a nice predictable fade at the end
