You are gonna be turning cartwheels and farting rainbows when you throw your new rig. Hell, you might even wanna have set of depends on.
I got one this morning and it is exactly as advertised. It has a bit more low speed fade then I figured but the glide is "re-gawd-damn-dic-ulous" (to borrow one from good ol' John Wayne).
It flies like you'd expect a valkpardeagle w extra glide to fly :)
After about 8 rounds it did exactly what Tomas said it would: It holds an anny all the way to the ground most of the time (used to fade out of them when brand spankin new). I kinda miss the little hook it had...but it is still a KILLER.
I am getting some straight, long drives when thrown flat and hard
So I got a 173 Gold line river in whore nail polish pinkish purple. I took it to Kit Carson and broke it in. Threw ALL 17 holes and 5 more. It seems to perform best as an anny with a L2R crosswind (I'm RHBH) Uber glide under those conditions. On all other holes it performed like a 168 Valk. Headwind: turns over too much. No wind: 40 feet past the basket. It hasn't earned a place in my bag yet, maybe cuz it's a little domey. I already have 2 Valks in my bag of 13 discs. A CE 172 yellow ultra flat top and a JK. They're gonna be hard to replace. Maybe I'll lose one ;o))
