Default River vs Seer vs Maul

I have been throwing an escape a lot and really like it, but it is a bit faster than I want for controlled shots. Particularly lower ceiling shots that I currently power up a mid for. The three in the title are the discs I have been considering. I have toyed with the leopard, and patriot, but am not really in love with either. And lets face it, we all like to try new plastic. So compare and contrast the three please! For reference I throw a buzz out to about 250' comfortably and relatively accurately.

If the OP throws an escape and likes that, but is faster than what he want I believe the Hatchet will be too fast as well.

I love the River and throw it on technical/wooded/tunnel shots all the time. I have not thrown the other two, but I understand the Maul is more understable than the River.

So I've thrown all discs mentioned and love them all. All have exceptional glide. The River and the Maul are VERY similar I'd say the Maul is a half tick less stable and also just a bit longer. The Seer flies very similar to the River but just a tick slower and shorter. The Maul give more distance for less effort than any disc I've ever thrown - very underrated. Hatchets are sweet too. I have way to much overlap with swedish understable glidey plastic.

Probably Seer. It should be a little more stable than the other two, letting you put a little more on it without worrying about turning it over. Since all of these are a tad slower than the Escape, you will be able to get them up to speed better and I would think the Maul would be too understable compared to the Escape and maybe the River too to less of an extent.

What did you not like about the Leopard and Patriot? If we know what about those you did not like, others could steer you away from similar discs.

I've had a hard time finding a patriot in a weight I like as well as a plastic. The pearly plastic, pinnacle I think was too hard for me.

As far as the leopard they were just too flippy, and judging by inbounds it seems as if the maul will be the same way. Inbounds has the seer portrayed in such a way I wonder if they used the discs misprinted flight ratings IE rather than the true ratings.

My wonder with the high glide ratings is if they also have a higher flight path.

Indeed, the turn and fade numbers are reversed on the disc. More info here: http://noodlearmdiscgolf.com/2015/03...n-and-finesse/

Why do people do this, the OP asked for opinions on three discs. If you don't have anything to add about those three, then why offer an opinion.

Anyway. I haven't thrown the Maul, will be getting a seer here shortly, but have thrown a river. I picked it up not liking the leopard either. I found the glide on the river to be a double edged sword it was great for the distance, but I had a harder time ranging it, and found myself blowing by baskets when I was at the borderline between throwing my fairway or my mid. The seer having less glide, reportedly, should prove a more consistent disc for me.
