I'm hoping it will pair with the compass as well as the verdict pairs with the truth

While it might pair well in terms of flight, it sure isn't pairing with Compass based on the feel like the Verdict/Truth combo does. Anchor seems to have a big bead while Compass has none. This is exactly the reason why I'm still on the lookout for a properly OS beadless mid from one of the Trilogy companies. Beadless Bard would be really nice.

yeah i just got a hold of one today and its definitely deeper feeling than the compass. closest comparison is a slightly shallower roc3/wasp hybrid. Feels better than either of those molds but still not quite as great as the compass. didn't get a chance to throw it yet, I'll be throwing it in the morning.

I think really I was hoping the compass was beaded. It wasn't doesn't make it a bad mid at all. But I just click with beaded mids.

So, it will be interesting. I'm hoping for a compass with a bead. My two cents.

Well, after throwing in the field, I think my slightly shallower roc/wasp hybrid assessment holds for the flight path as well.
Definitely a tick slower than the verdict/truth, but a tighter line overall. Solid 0 on the high speed like the fresh verdict, but a later and softer fade than the verdict, slightly more fade than emac truth.
Overall I'd say the factory numbers are pretty spot on, other than maybe being more of a 4.5 speed (or you could say the verdict/truth family are 5.5 speed, but they came out stamped 5 first, so whatever)
It felt better to throw than the wasp, and really shone on big annys that panned flat predictably right when I expected them to, unlike the verdict which is a little trickier to match speed and anny angle just right on those shots.

The pic is the blue metal flake anchor on the the left and a z wasp on the right

Ender have you thrown a Bard?
If so, how does the Anchor compare?

Pain Dimensions:

The pain was always very roc-like as well. It is OOP now correct? The profile looks similar wonder if it shares any of the old OS mold characteristics.
