Very similar in the way that they are both round plastic discs...not in flight.

The Sail is an ultra glidey, very understable disc best used for rollers, hyzer flips, and low power players.

The Undertaker is straight to slightly understable disc that's similar to TL's or beat Eagles.

They're both pretty awesome though.

I ordered one a couple of days ago. One thing I'm curious about is trying to reconcile the 11 speed with the 1.9cm rim. I usually think of a 1.9 cm rim of around speed 9. The information below is from Infinite discs. I also see the flight numbers from Infinite are different but I believe both Infinite and DGA list the speed as 11.


Sail Dimensions:

Diameter: 21.0 cm
Height: 1.9 cm
Rim Depth: 1.1 cm
Rim Width: 1.9 cm
Max Weight: 173.00 g

Additional Information:

Speed: 11.0
Glide: 6.0
Turn: -3.0
Fade: 1.0
Primary Use:
Stability: Understable
Recommended Skill Level: Beginner, Everyone
Plastic grade(s): Durable

Any word on a release date for the Undertaker?

Pretty similar to an ASS really. Maybe more understable even?

Okay... so I just got back from throwing one. Observations below:
1. Plastic feels great - plenty of grip
2. Definitely a speed 9ish rim size.
3. Feels good in the hand (at least to me).
4. The GLIDE IS FOR REAL.
5. Very understable. More understable than a Mamba.
6. Goes a long way without a lot of power.
7. Easy to turn over into the ground without height. Use height and/or hyzer to keep from flipping all the way over.
8. I like it because I like flippy discs (and don't have a big arm). Even noodle arms can get a big right turn out of this guy.

It's fun but it's not for everyone.
