But certainly it's not reliable like within a mold where I look for small differences and can make a pretty good conclusion. More just thinking "will this mold be very overstable, straight-ish, or understable".
yep exactly, it may not be super accurate but it can definitely give me a good idea, and the throws in my video just reinforced that.

Kong’s are pretty sweet looking but too fast for most. My daughter got one and she def doesn’t have the arm for that. Though we still have it a go.

Awww, that's pretty cute. Your daughter has great form. How far is she throwing there? 150 - 200? Probably too much disc for her at this point, but if she keeps it up she'll be bombing that Kong before you know it.

Yeah about that distance. She can throw about 225+. She throws Vultures and Avenger SS. It’s too high speed for her and that was max weight as well.

This is interesting. I don’t want to hold disc specs as gospel, but the kong is approved at a deeper depth then the trespass (1.2 vs 1.1 cm). One thing the keeps me with the trespass is the feel, but if the Kong starts off a bit more OS but offers the same feel, I’d definitely be interested.

Trespass, as said above. I think the trespass is already on the shallow side of my preferences, so Kong might be too shallow. I have to say, though, that I should reserve my judgement because I haven't ever even held the disc in my hands as they aren't available in Finland just yet
