Anyone throw one yet? They're on infinite. Similar to a PD? I searched for this thread and couldn't find it.

I ordered a VIP and a TP off Infinite, and they shipped today. Stay tuned.

I'd be really interested to see which is the better FH disc for me out of this one and the Ahti.

Looking forward to your thoughts AJB.

Here these have great distance potential for a fairway driver. Excited to hear more.

tp flies like a lightly used culverin

vip is more stable has no turn and close to a beat felon in flight


this is the disc that will complete my search for new plastic.
fortress (both plastics) a vip sampo and beat northman. with sparks for fairways (different weifgts and plastics) bard or ibex (depending on wind) and envies. this disc makes me happy.



awaiting the ahti for superstupid windy days

I tried both the TP and VIP versions yesterday and found them both more overstable than any Culverin i have thrown. To me they seemed to fly pretty much like a faster Longbowman, just as the flight numbers suggest. As with the Longbowman, the TP flies straight longer than the VIP before it fades.

I found even the Opto Culverins to be closer to my S-PD and P-PD. I did enjoy the handfeel, but didn't see any sort of improvement over my PDs already. The Fortress being more OS than a Culverin is good, but from what you say I'd have to really beat in the TP before the Fortress has a shot at replacing my PDs.

Would you guys say it is longer than the culverin or just slightly more stable? I throw a lot of culverins and would be curious in finding a slightly longer one

Sounds like what the Stag's flight numbers suggested it might be.
