Surprised by the low glide comments. Mine has crazy glide for a somewhat stable disc.

Next time I play I'll bring the Getaway. I have no clue what type of plastic it is. Something that seems like star. Fuzion, perhaps? Disc has a custom stamp, so the plastic isn't listed.

Yeah, my Musket definitely isn't going to win any glide awards. I won't call it a clunker or say it doesn't glide, but it definitely doesn't have the float that a Shryke or Heat does. I think the average glide actually helps the Musket. It penetrates well and doesn't get blown around much in breezes.

I'll call the Musket's glide perfectly average. A solid 4. Just like an Orc or Starfire.

It's a very consistent, predictable flier. Honestly surprised with it. Great resistance to turn, very linear flight and then a predictable, late dumpy fade. I need to throw the Getaway some more but the Musket seemed a lot less nose angle sensitive. I had trouble keeping the nose down on the Getaway for some reason.

A lot of people should check this disc out. It's right in that Thunderbird neighborhood. It's not an overly long disc like T-dub mentioned but very controllable and seemed solid in the wind. My Musket's used but didn't look like it had many rounds on it so I don't know if it's pre- or post-break in.

I liked the Musket when I used it for the TC. Should probably throw it in the bag again sometime. I found it a little flippy, but controllable. Definitely less overstable than most Thunderbirds. My biggest reservation is that I've got more than one Teebird I'm familiar with that can hit most of the same shots.

The Musket could slot into the PD/Thunderbird slot for people that don't have 400+ ft of power.

I found the Musket just a hair longer than the Getaway. Similar flight though. The Musket had a tiny smidge of high speed turn, like -0.5. The Getaway didn't.

Musket for me is like a new (not broken in) Orc or a broken in Starfire. Nice driver. I found that I could do pretty much whatever I wanted with it.... and accurately.

For me the Musket is a slightly longer Explorer. With a good spin I can get it flip to flat and fade. I have a blue metal flake max weight TC Musket which is slightly overstable and then my orange 169g workhorse Musket which tends to flip a little bit. It’s a very good mold for 320ft max. thrower.

I like the musket. I replaced the Thunderbird in my bag with a TC musket. I throw 350-375 and love throwing this as the go to stable driver. I can get some nice long S-curve forehand drives with it too. This disc (and my thunderbird) are in the stability sweet spot where I can throw them hard either style. This is the best TC driver that I've thrown so far.

With all the stable stuff coming out of Lat these days, forgot about this one. How does it compare to the Culverin?

The speed/distance/glide. I think the stability is about the same. I use my culverin alongside my falchion and leopard distance/wise and cannot FH it at full power, otherwise it just turns and burns. It's a good OS fairway driver for me.

The TC Musket can go a little longer and glide a bit more. I can FH it at full power and get a nice flex flight path out of it.
