Ok, that makes sense. But BTW what the hell is with DD saying -0.5 when it's clearly a -1 or greater? On a lot of discs they like the half point system?

IDK. The turn on the Convict is at least -1, maybe even -2. I don't like half point numbering systems. I find it annoying. I think a lot of Westside's discs are wrongly numbered for turn and fade too. IDK what sallies they have throwing these discs to generate those numbers, but Kings and Destinies have at LEAST -3 turn.

The Convict is actually a very good fairway driver, but I wish it had a bit less turn. Sometimes it just tends to get away from you on a hard throw. Also makes it very hard to use in wind.

The wind is my issue. nd it's rarely calm enough to not affect the convict, I do like it but I think I'm moving on to something else. IDK just not for me.

I love the Convict but this is why I dont throw it much. It gets pretty unreliable in any amount of wind. I originally had it in the bag as a Thunderbird replacement, and at first it was, but it quickly became more of a seasoned Sandstrom Valkyrie

Yeah I've never thrown a disc that seems to be as nice and straight as the Convict that hates wind so much. I trust my FD more in the same wind because at least it has the same characteristics amplified, whereas the Convict might kind of hold or might flip into oblivion, while in calm it can take a lot of power and fly nice.

Even Felons flip hard in wind, but at least they have enough LSS to come back or at minimum pan out at the end.

Yeah, the Convict is simply dead accurate in calm conditions. Any sort of breeze tends to toss it around pretty bad though.

I won't bag one. I enjoy throwing it, but I'd probably toss a Thunderbird in over a Convict.

That said, I still think its one of Dynamic's better offerings. I'm not at all a fan of any of their really flippy fairway drivers. The only DD disc in my bag is the Truth. That thing is legit.

I like their Thief for straight fairway shots and turnovers, but I'm actually hoping the Maverick is my neutral to US fairway that I've been waiting for.

I got Grippenripp's old Convict and gave it a few tosses in the field today alongside a couple of Heats. It's got more LSS than the Heats but it ain't as noticeably more OS than I thought it would be. It strikes me as a driver that would be more useful in the woods than in the open. It's kind of blunt which makes it slower and more susceptible to wind compared to PD/Thunderbird/OLF type drivers but it feels controllable for this speed.

Hope you're enjoying it man, don't forget I still got the Escape and a Felon up for grabs. The Convict ain't terrible, just inconsistent its literally will do different things on the same throw and was just way too right moving for me.

Just got a stack of Lucid-X and Hybrid discs in the mail. . .and WOW the Lucid-x Convict is perfect

Lucid-x feels like a hard Champion with the grip of Discrafts ZFLX. . . early to say, but for now i think the Lucid-x is the best plastic out there
