I prefer Valks to Beasts. Star and Pro are my Favorites.

But DX Beast-X are fun!

Oh boy, now we have to explain X vs L!

Ducks head and runs!!!!

Grip does have a point.

You also have a point that Grip may be overreacting, but I don't know how long he's been having to deal with stuff like this which does get frustrating over time.

Now let's get back to talking about Valks and Beasts.

Can't agree. Mold vs. Mold thread are valuable. They are valuable to all. I search for them quite often. The discussion of the differences should not end simply because the OP made the last post and only mentioned one mold.

Did they adjust the flight numbers on the new old mold Beasts? Is -2 | 2 accurate on them? How are they compared to the old old mold Beasts?

If a Beast and a Valk walk into a bar, does the Roadrunner duck?

I dunno, but the Valk and Roadrunner had a baby, it's called the SPHINX.

Think of it this way, the numbers are accurate for both but describe a different state of wear. For the retooled beast, the numbers accurately reflect it out of the box. The original mold, they describe the mold after it gets seasoned in for a while.

They also have to account for all the pro, star, and dx Beasts that are sold with the retooled wing.

Correct.

However, you don't find it remotely reasonable to answer new OPs question first before talking about your own [Casey] selfish topic? Can't link him or her (dger48) to another thread with useful information? You've white knighted Casey yet haven't helped dger48 in the least...

But it was also just slow enough that if I really cranked on it forehand anny it would occasionally turn and burn. When I lost it in some gnarly rough I couldn’t find another Beast locally so I took a chance on a Valk (Pro, 170) and it’s perfect for the straight-to-understable slot for my arm speed. Complement it with a Thunderbird for forehand rips and hyzer/high fade shots and I’m done trying new drivers for a while, lol.

But if you’ve got closer to 400’ arm than 300’ a Valk might be too flippy and a Beast or even Archon would be better for the straight-to-understable slot.
This is wrong too. A Valk is never flippy unless beat to piss. I can hyzerflip a 6/10 DX over 400' not internet distance. Support and quote accurate information PMantle. FWIW I'm at sea level so no elevation doesn't add to the stability

I would say no, got to see somebody who bought a Champion Valkyrie and they had the disc with a Wahoo dome to it so the disc was essentially as US as a stable version Star Road Runner. This was back sometime in the mid 2010's when Innova was pumping out Mistake discs as production run including that Last Run of No Flight Number Star Shark that Innova is finally running out of.

Wow dude. You don’t have to be a Richard just to win your little tiff with what’s-his-nuts. I just gave my perspective as a low-intermediate player who just literally made the switch. I’m sure you’ve got super clean form and can bomb a P2 500’ like Simon, but for the rest of us mortals yes, a Valk is flippier than a Beast.
