Review: I love the MRV, but since it's discontinued I was shopping for something to replace it for the day that I finally run out of them. I came across the Hawk and was intrigued by it's oddly shaped rim, so I bought it mostly out of curiosity. After throwing it, I went back to the store and bought the rest fo them they had in stock! It throws straight as an MRV or Buzzz at lower power, and as you step the power up is more like an MRV that's easier to turn over, and turns over a bit further. It'll still go super straight, but you can get it to helix/s-curve so nicely. It'll hold an anhyzer line, it'll hold a hyzer line, it's really an excellent example of an all purpose disc. I use it for nearly straight shots where I need to get around a tree, but want to come back to the basket as it fades. I'd say in that respect it flies similar to a Z Glide, but it's not as severely understable. Even if you don't buy one, check out the rim on this thing...I haven't seen one like it!
