For me (340-350ish arm) the Falk will turn up from hyzer, fly straight and have a pretty soft fade. They are flippier than a fresh Valkyrie.

Thanks, I recently bought a Kaxe Z after using an original Kaxe off and on. The Kaxe feels like a little speedy bullet when thrown. I think it's a good disc in the wind for sure. The Z I havent tried much.

When it isnt 100 degrees out I will have to throw that again. I have so many discs in the 7 speed range where I came to my senses and decided against buying a Falk. I love the feeling of Kastaplast K1, but my collection is already larger than needed. The price tag on these bad boys kinda steers me away. The feel in my hands is very nice though.

Nice, yeah. I will say the Falk is a solid Speed 9, so it's going to be "faster" than a River.

A Falk is a Valk that has better glide... and maybe a touch slower even if not by wing size.

As much as the Crave is an improved TeeBird, the Valk is an improved Valkyre. Plasma Crave will be what you are looking for.

Edit: I see streets already answered. He is correct.

My K1 Falks are both a little domey and I was throwing them beside a flat GStar Valk and I agree with this assessment. The GStar Valk flew faster out of the hand but the Falk felt a little slower and just floated its distance.

Is someone puts their Leo3 s out to 350 on a slight flex line, and Destroyers out to 400' on a hyzer flip to flat and slight flex line.....what would a Falk fly like at the 350-375' power???

Assuming that the throw is flat and clean, it should have a gentle turn for most of the flight and a gental fade at the end.

If thrown on anhyzer, it needs to be aired out. It will go a long way if given enough height.

Really, just think Valkyrie with better glide.
Don't be surprised if it flys as far as your Destroyer on a hyzer flip line.

I think Streets throws a bit farther than I do, let's see if he agrees with this assessment.
