Yea Zam just said in the other thread the nitro will be the stable-OS of the class. With less gap between it and the Ocatane than Photon/wave...

I saw the specs for the new disc, is there any way to determine how they fly by them?

Not really. You can tell how sharp the wing is from the specs (rim configuration), but you can't tell how high the wing height is, how domey it is, or how concave the underside of the wing is, which all have an affect on stability. However, over in the MVP Disc Sports thread, one guy has already given a mini review of how they fly for a slower arm so take a peak over there.

If you go to YouTube and MVP Discs' channel, it shows the flight pattern of this new 23mm class. It's a very stable disc for lower power arms. I mentioned in the other thread that I'd put it at 13 / 5 / -1 / 3 on Innova's scale. The Nitro will likely be compared to longer Photon by bigger arms.

How far do you throw, turtle?

The MVP graphs look pretty, but I wish they had distances next to those lines. What will this do at 350' of power?

Distances are misleading for the official charts IMHO, but with 350' of power, I'd guess that the middle line, or the power below that one, would apply for your throw. I'm about 350' as well and usually the middle line represents my arm, but in the higher two speed classes I would kick it a notch lower in effective power.
