My light blue sublime is definitely closer to 3 fade, using Teebirds as a benchmark this blue hooks waaay harder.

Which plastic? Sublime? Some of those had a higher parting line, really flat profile. If it doesn't get up to speed then that fade could be more intense. I guess the other thing to consider is our ratings will be slightly different than Innova. This is the unfortunate kickback to arbitrary numbers. The ratings are a great marketing tool for all disc golf businesses, so they might not always be the same from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Yea the sublime. It has a really interesting flight. Straight, tiny bit of turn, then as it slows it really slams the breaks on. It’s unique in discs I’ve thrown and fun to throw.

I will always use innova numbers, it’s like having a standard international unit to measure distance. Without something standard I’m talking apples and you’re talking oranges. Not productive conversation
They were there first, so I don’t mind letting them have that one.

My light blue sublime 165 I would put at 2.5 fade. Definitely more than the Silver Sublime and not quite candy Eternal or Yellow Apex. It's FAF and has a high plh. It's a sick stout Eagle-x replacement!

No need to split hairs though. You guys did a great job putting all that together. I just wish I would have gotten one of those Royal Blue sublimes. Had I known that they were going to come out that understable, I would have bought one immediately.

Innova created the entire industry. I'd expect nothing less. The shelf space I have to get on...they built it. Its balance for us of embracing industry norms like the ratings and bringing some new ideas from our other business experiences.

I don't think I have a Royal Blue anymore if it makes you feel better. Really wishing I did set one aside to keep haha.
