I lost the one I had too. I liked a lot because of the straightness and forward fade. Mine was a Champ 167. I might have to pick up both and throw them (after the snow melts and will probably be July at this rate).

Lol that's so lame. You probably have a pile of discs you haven't been able to throw. I wouldn't enjoy that. You should have an indoor putting league. That's where I'm headed to now. I'm leaving the Sorcerer at home.

I like to compare disc specs as Companies all measure speed, turn and fade all differently. You can't argue the actual specs. Westside always seems to rate their discs faster and more overstable consistently. As long as you know that going in you can get a better idea what the disc will fly like.

Typically I'd agree with that. There are always certain factors that can come in to play like plastic blends and dome that will effect glide and flight some also but it's a great place to start. I usually pick one up and if it fits my hand nice I will throw it then go from there. If it's awkward in my hand I usually don't get to the throwing stage. I've tried to like discs that were weird in my hand and they never work out. The Fury and Mace are two perfect examples that I hated how they felt in my hand but bought one to try anyway. I gave away the Fury. Still have two Maces for sale.

Westside definitely has a little different numbering system but they test them in Finland and use the numbers they feel best represent the flight there. The higher altitude I'm told makes them more stable and longer in flight due to thinner air. I've never been I can't say.

That's very polite. It's a little faster, little more glide, and more high speed stability. Probably about the same fade. It's been a while since I threw a Sword but I don't remember them having a ton of fade. For a super fast disc like this though the Sorcerer has very little.

Sensitive how? To wind? Or nose angle? To Oat? Well it doesn't like much of a headwind but it's not going to probably turn quite as much just because it's a little faster. Depends on your sword I guess. I only have experience with the TP ones. I haven't noticed it sensitive to nose angle but I've cleaned that aspect of my throw up a little bit. Bout the only thing going for me right now lol. To OAT, yeah if you got the torque toss going you should maybe look to the World. I tried to huck mine on an anny and it just stayed that way until it met the ground about 270 feet later. It likes hyzer or a flat toss.

I was thinking more of how some swords seem to only like a flat or close to it release.

So nose angle and plane then. Swords are great they really are. If you want to step up to the next speed a Sorcerer is a good option. Westside right now has nothing beyond a speed 12 that compares until this. I'm not trying to drain your bank roll though I don't care if you buy one or not. It is what it is. If you need something faster and you like a sword this is your best option for westside plastic pre summer. /drops mic Sorry I'm a little discombobulated.
