Yeah you might need to go to a different mold if you already have a max weight Opto that is straight HSS with some finish. A Verdict is probably a good step up but it should have similar HSS to a stable Compass, with more fade (and it is a faster mid than the Compass). I have not thrown an Anchor but I think that's what Ricky is using for his OS mid to complement his Compasses.

You are correct about that. Ricky was throwing his Anchor at the Aussie Open. Looks like a really good disc.

Is there any good footage of Ricky tossing this mid outside of the launch video? I mean...I know his name is on it...and he SAYS he uses it. But seems to me he pretty much just throws Harps and the Anchor. I wouldn't mind seeing this disc at use in his hands.

Agree with your observations. I'd say that if you see Ricky throwing a turnover mid, you're seeing him throw a Compass...

I suspect that if the Anchor had come out before the Compass, the Anchor might well have been Ricky's sig disc. Once the Anchor came out, it became Ricky's "go to" mid...

Anyone else thrown the 2x Gold X Compass yet?

My first impression is that it flies very very close to my beloved beat in gold... I love it but I think they're too close to both be in the bag.

Beat in compass went out and the even straighter gold-x went in.

Any comparison between gold and the new gold burst plastic available? Gotta know if this is a matter of a new generation less stable Compasses.
