Default Reptilian Disc Golf Ptero: Stable Fairway Driver

The partnership between RDG and Daredevil discs has taken another step forward this week.
We have teamed up to produce another disc that I think will be a sneaky entry into the ever changing fairway market.

The Ptero is based off of the highly underrated Timberwolf mold.
We have produced the Ptero in ArmorFlex plastic. It is crazy durable & provides one of the best grips of any premium plastic on the market.



The initial flight tests have shown a workable fairway of traditional speed. It is almost like traveling in a time machine to days that coveted glide and precision over speed and stability.

Preliminary flight numbers are 7, 5, -1, 1 if you're into that sort of thing

So...Raptor : Scale :: Ptero : Serpent?

Can't wait to try these either way since the Raptor was just too much beef for my bag.

Yes sir! We will now how two PnA molds and two fairway drivers

Our mids should be right around the corner as well.


The Ptero is one of the most workable fairways I've thrown. I also think that folks that have low or medium power will find this to be their workhorse.

Is Armor Flex the same plastic as the Raptors? Sorry to ask so many questions. I don't have any Daredevil experience beyond the Gamedisc.

And any chance of 150-class weights thrown into the mix? I recently made the move for drivers and have been loving it.

These are the same plastic as the Raptors and boy do they feel amazing.

This proto run of 100 pieces were all 175g. I'd like to work in some lower weights but with ours/Daredevil's production being so small, chances are that will be a ways away.

I really love the Timberwolf (I have two). Excited to get my hands on one of these!

I definitely would like to try one of these. JC or HeavyCritters, can you compare the Ptero or TWolf flight to a TL and/or FD? I bag a Star TL and I've played around a bit with an S-Line FD (slightly less stable and slightly shorter for me than the TL). That wing shape looks somewhat similar to a TL although it appears to have just a little more curvature on the underside of the wing than a TL. How is the flight comparatively?

This mold is slightly unique in this crowded field of drivers.

Unlike most "stable" fairways, the Ptero has an "X"wing like a Teebird/Eagle-X. That said, the flight is closer to the "L" variants of these molds.

I've found the Ptero to be really easy to get some flip when given a bit of hyzer but it also has enough LSS to be worked back if you want it to.

The flight numbers on the TL having 0 turn to me makes it a little tough to range and throw. The Ptero however, for me, has been really easy to manipulate on a variety of lines and shot shapes.
