Sounds more like Rival? A Rival with more fade would be great!

I already bag Undertakers and Mantis for my Fairway drivers. I have about 8 of the beefy Glo Ledgestone Undys and a couple Big Z that turn more. Will I find a need for the Vulture? Or would it overlap what I already have?

If anyone could compare I would appreciate it. I max out on my Cranks at about 420ft and use my fairways for 320ft to 380ft.

Damn...8 of them? This makes my stock (3 fresh ones set aside) seem under equipped. I think I should grab one or two more now, but I'm waiting for Infinite to drop the price before I get a small stack.

This was my hesitation to get the Vulture as well. That run of Ledgestone Glo is so reliably OS. I've got the one Vulture right now, and based on handfeel alone, it isn't kicking those Ledgestones out. Even if I got more distance with it, consistency of grip would be more important to me.

Still...looking forward to test it out.

I'm in the opposite boat - I'm looking for something that feels more like a predator but is straighter in flight. The undertaker isn't different enough from a mantis to carry both. Right now I'm considering a teebird3 in that slot, but the vulture is very intriguing .

I bought a bunch of the glo when marshalstreet discounted them to like 10$ a piece. They are a different monster. They actually kicked the predator out my bag. All of a sudden discraft has all kinds of newish fairways in their lineup and im questioning if I have the right setup. Looks like sunking still has about 13 glos, I may grab a few more

DGA has the Bonzai coming out that looks close to pred numbers and the glo undys are beef but should beat nice and str8 with glide. The vulture sounds exactly what you are looking for based off the description. No need to flirt with the innova

If the Vulture flies anything like that blue, 167 seasoned Predator that I use to throw, then I might have to check it out. That seasoned Pred was versatile and sneaky long.

I would say the Vulture is longer than the undertaker. It can be forced to fly closer to 400' with some anny on it, but probably not on a straight line. For me, I love the concave wing that it has. I hate convex wings for drivers. Hated the leopard, heat, mantis, and undertaker for that reason alone. If you like those rims, I wouldn't mess with the Vulture.

On a seasoned pred note, it is very much a seasoned predator. I have a couple of season Z Preds that I love, but to beat one in takes forever. Not anymore.
