Now that the Jackal has been out for a while and those that have bought them have had some time to throw them, I wonder what you think. Do you like the flight? What type of shots? What color and weight? Do you like the stamp? Etc.
I was lucky enough to get part of a day with this disc before it came out. It felt like a really domey leopard and flew like a TL with a bit less HSS and a TON of glide.
I have since purchased a 173g Orange one with a gold stamp. The production model is exactly like the proto, lots of dome and glide. I like it for dead straight 280-325' shots, especially when there is low ceiling. It will get out to 400+, but I have other drives I like better for bigger distances. There is some overlap with my Lat64 Opto River, but the FD has a bit more LSS. A plus for me, even though I'm backhand dominant, the FD has a sweet forehand release.
The artwork on the disc is horrible, it looks like a cat hacking up a furball. JMO
So far its in the bag and I have about 40 rounds with it.
Looks like they have been testing it some more and really liking it. They said we'll have some news in 1-2 weeks.
I'm talking myself into the Jackal more and more. Really is a jacknife of a disc.
I'm talking myself into just trying one out more and more every day lol I just don't know if it would have what it takes to knock my Rivers out of that spot
I have it in the bag with my Rivers. I think the differnece is that it has a later turn than the River. The Rivers start their turn and just keep going and settle. The Jackal goes straight and then starts its turn late, scrubs speed and fades out. Like a little S right at the end. On higher power pulls it will make a bit of a bigger slower S.
