Default Boatman vs Giant

How different are these discs? Is the Giant just a longer version of the Boatman? I've heard the Giant isnt quite as OS as it sounds. Ideally I'm looking for a longer Long Bowman, which if you haven't thrown is like a beat firebird out of the box. I thrown avg distance around 350'.

I also throw a Trespass, how much more OS are these discs compared to the Trespass.

I think what you are looking for is an Elasto Giant. In tp my Giants are a bit flippy but my Elasto is trusty OS which I use to get more distance than my longbowman. I liken the trespass to the sword finding both to be US.

I got a beat in TP Giant that I can get a nice hyserflip to slight right turn and then a predictable fade and I also got a newer TP Giant which is just straight if I don't throw it into a 10+ mph headwind which it will usually start riding anny before comming back.
I got a biofuzion Trespass and it is way more understable then both my Giants.

As for comparioson to Boatman I not sure I have never thrown it.

I don't know the Boatman, but if I were to comp the discs mentioned that I do know;

To me the Trespass is like a beat Star Destroyer, the VIP Giant is like a Star Ape. Basically it's pretty OS but the TP is not near as OS. Get a VIP or Elasto. I think you will like it.

Would you say a Lucid Trespass and a TP Giant would be very similar? I live at 7K feet and really don't need anything dumb OS. Just looking for something a touch more stable than a Lucid Trespass.

Ive recently bought a 172 pink tp boatman and they fly pretty straight for me. For example for BHs btween 340 and 380 they are straight with a lite fade. For FHs i throw them for 270 to 330 and can throw them dead straight or with a touch of hyzer for a flip.

I initially bought this because my rivals and thinderbirds were overlapping so i just decided to step up to a boatman for those long straight lines with minimal fade.

If anything a boatman flys like a faster more stable biofuzion escape, Is more stable than a esp surge, and has less fade than a star wraith.

having thrown all 3, the boatman is a nice step up in stability from the lucid trespass. giant is faster and more os than boatman maybe more glide too. both resist turn really well, but the giant will always fade further out. other than that the boatman feels really blunt in the hand

Giants a much like destroyers in that they start out relatively OS and are great for long hyzers. However, my favorite blue TP now flies much like a world or boss. The giant is a great distance driver for cycling imo.

The boatman is a nice step up from the trespass, however it isn't beefy like some might think (wish it was). Especially Recycled boatmans which are dead straight to fade.
