From the other thread, I posted yesterday;I just got word that it flies more like a Cannon. With the right amount of speed it will flip up and bomb straight. Looks like they will debut it at the Memorial. It will have a DGA proto stamp.

Default I threw one tonight

I live in Phoenix and a guy sponsored by DGA (sorry can't remember his name) brought one to our local league. It was a fresh prototype and it was pretty beefy. I threw it along with another guy to try it out. We both can throw 425-450 fairly consistently in the the open using your normal high speed stuff (Boss, Nuke, Cannon, etc.) Neither of us had it turn at all with a flat throw. I had to come over the top of it pretty hard to get it to turn (torque monkey). If I threw it flat it would hold the line then fade pretty hard at the ~350-375 mark. Felt a lot like a fresh Rampage to me. Definitely harder to get it up to speed then most Nukes I have thrown. Not a bad disc but probably not something I would run out and buy either.

Who cares what mold it is. All I know is DGA's plastic is better than Discraft and I am stoked to have something faster than my Hurricane, which I love...and for the simple reason to hopefully get rid of my Nukes because they are inconsistent and unreliable.

I got a chance to throw a couple protos today, and have t say that these things bomb. I threw them in a transitional type plastic, felt kinda champystar. It took me a few throws to get used to the wider rim as I'm a destroyer/hurricane guy, but once I got in a groove, I could ge them to flip up into big S Curve lines. They had really nice glide. I'd put the stability at almost a -2, 2 on the innova scale with a bunch of glide. With some more work, I could easily see myself getting these out 450+ which is just a little farther than my destroyer max.

to contribute a little in this thread.... speed can vary + or - 1 with rim thickness if you consider how sharp the nose is. blunter noses can be rated slower than sharp noses. Best example is a Trident compared to a XXX. pretty much the same disc except the Trident has an extra spacer in the wing, which makes is slower (less sharp) than the XXX.


This is also why Legacy markets their drivers as speed 14. very sharp.

I don't think they have quite the same amount of glide as first flight 'canes, but what does? It definitely had some really nice carry I it though when I threw it right.
