That sounds about right. It was really straight and Teebird-ish so far. It had some nasty road rash on it that I had to smooth out so I dunno if that affected any stability but it flew nice.

tested late fall last year. nice mold, etc. they were very similar to a cd2 for me. looking forward to warm weather to get them up and out.

can't recall plastic type, weight or run right now will give details when I do a legit field test.

400-450 or so. im a short guy so my throws are highly dependent on my mechanics being in sync. . i normally throw my alphas anywhere from 300-400 depending on the hole.

i should clarify that the sublime i'm talking about in my previous post is the newest 3rd run,nice and beefy, it's a true power fairway for sure. they work fantastic for fh shots, kind of FLish?

thats still pretty accurate for its flight. they remind me of a longer tb/eagle , kinda like the pd did but a little less lss in some variations. they break in like the pd as well,high speed turn and keeping some lsf. the pink you have is very close to the 1st run eternal orange i have had bagged for several months.

I'm looking to pick a few of these up.. I threw 11x Eagles for years and am tired of paying the price for them when I need back ups. What color/run/plastics should I be looking for? I throw roughly 375-425(on most good days) with my Eagles and Veterans. TIA

The most commonly available Alphas right now are second run Sublimes. Sublime plastic is Mint's most expensive. They go for around $15.99. Some retailers have limited stock of first run Eternal Alphas in pink, orange and yellow, as well as yellow Apex Alphas. These cost a dollar or two less than Sublime.

All of the options mentioned above are relatively stable. I have no experience with 11x Eagles, and so cannot give a perfect match for you. I would suggest looking at them online, and picking one that you like. I am an Alpha thrower, and would be happy with most any of them.

got two of third runs on the way via marshall. bought them totally off that gnarly looking stamp and the cool looking pearly plastic.

wasn't all that impressed or displeased with the second runs.. I just really haven't had a chance to field test them yet.
