Yup; I love those!!! I agree it’s not usually what people want from a Valk, but they can do great things if you adjust your expectations

Yep. If I wasn't bagging the SL, I'd probably bag my flat-top OS Star Valk as a headwinds disc. As it is, I take it and the other Valks out to the range to practice.

A guy at doubles had a Champion Valkyrie that looked to have some Luster in it and that thing seemed beefier than a Firebird.

Back in my rookie days I'd throw some DX Valks. The damn disc would change flight so fast it was ridiculous. You don't even have to hit trees or asphalt with them. DX is frustrating for new players who are trying to learn how to throw. Frustrating in that the damn disc keeps changing and becoming less stable all the time.

I'm not a serious Valk thrower, but if I mess with them I like heavy champions.

Yeah and the kicker is these are plussy...compared it to a new stamp, JL Valk I got and that one has a normal rim. So I have a couple of Valk+'s now. That's cool. #thxInnova
