Intermediate amateur - RHBH - 250-300ft.
This disk surprised me. At 164gm, it's the lightest disk in my bag and by far the longest in calm conditions or tailwind. The rim is slightly undercut resulting in a ton of snap on release. It just shoots out of your hand--fast. One surprise was that the SE was less overstable than my DX Valk. Straight for 80-90%, then a nice predictable fade (in the Xpress range). Throw hyzer and it hyzers. Throw it anhyzer and it holds that line for 80-90% then lands fairly flat. (I'm sure bigger arms would hold the line.) Another surprise, more glide than my DX. I actually overshot a 300ft dogleg the third time I threw it. That's a problem I can get used to. My local courses have a lot of lumber. After numerous attempts to make firewood out of 100 year old oak trees, the SE Valk shows only a few skuffs.
I don't know which pressing this came out of. It's an early looking logo. But if I can fine another one like it, I'm buying a spare.
