Drivers are drivers, you throw them hard and they shape their flight. I'm interested in seeing how it works out for him with Forces and whatever else, but what I'm really interested in is upshots 225-300'. He would use McPro Roc3's a lot I think because they can power down but also don't need to be thrown hard to hold a line. I don't think Buzzzes work as well for this type of approach at short ranges, so will he lean on putter upshots a lot more or use beat Wasps or what? Also I'm interested to see how much the Zone FH upshots work their way in to his game.

I would guess there has to be test flights out there since they are already PDGA approved, and we know there are Raptor test flights already out there as we have seen videos on them.

Pretty safe to say both of those will be in his bag, and his first tournament is actually the Wintertime Open. CCDG has covered that in the past, but not next day coverage.

I think CCDG confirmed in another thread that they will make videos available next day for this tournament.

I believe Discraft's Bob Julio confirmed that the Raptor is going to be pushed hard before / at the Vegas Challenge, so I wouldn't be surprised at all if Paul may even have a production run stamp in his bag for that event (provided he does, in fact, decide to bag a Raptor)

yes, that 1.9 is most likely a reference to their old rating system.

So a a slightly more stable Punisher. . the punisher is at 1.7

But funny that the KONG has -1 3 and 1.9 . . Punisher 0 3 and 1.7 . . . .the 4-numbers on the KONG looks more US than the Punishers 4-numbers. . . but the KONG is more OS according to Discrafts number

Got to love the numbers
