Star VCobras, Metal Flake Katanas and Thunderbirds, new backpack too. Any thoughts on these?

I like the extra stability I've been noticing on the Metal Flake blend. They look great and fly better. I don't have any experience with the Katana, but I have thrown the Shark and Teebird in MF. My only concern is their durability as they are fairly new. Has anyone put one of these Metal Flake discs through some serious abuse yet?

I had a buddy that managed to split his down the middle recently. It was cold out and after a solid tree hit, the disc had a slice right down the middle of the flight plate. For this reason, I'll likely wait to throw my MF discs until spring...

Love me some metal flake discs. It may be my imagination, but as DJ said, the seem to be slightly more stable. Trespass, Elasto Sampos, Verdicts, all the metal flake I can get.

Plus, dey just purdy!

I've decided not to buy any more discs. I have more than enough already, even switching out a third of my bag every round to keep it interesting I've got enough probably to last me through next summer. In my favorite molds I've got multiple backups in all the plastics.

Plus my wife said if I buy one more damn disc she's divorcing me, so there's that.

All the metal flake Roc3s I've thrown flew very neutral/straight. Not as OS as a domey champ Roc3. People used to agree with me on that until recently. I have a feeling there is a new run of metal flake Roc3s that is OS. Not sure if it's domey or not but I'm guessing it would be since that seems to be the trend for OS Roc3s.

I've been throwing a metal flake Thunderbird quite a bit and I like it a lot. It seems a little farther and smoother than a new Champ. Almost like a slightly worn Champ Thunderbird. They also have a little more grip than the Champs do. Nice disc. As far as the backpack goes I haven't held one but they look pretty nice for their price point. I'm sure Grip and some of the others are better quality but doesn't look like you can go wrong for a little over $100.
