Almost...assuming you received the same notification I did.

I'm very curious to see how the FDs compare for me to my Rivers.
...there was a time when you were taught to find the best disc for you, not the best disc for your situation on the course, which is how they are sold now. IMO, the flight charts are basically there to point out all the stuff you dont have in your bag and why you suck.

USPS says that my discs were in Anaheim, CA as of last night. :)

I would LOVE if the FD could have the glide of the River. I doubt it will. I've never seen a disc glide like the River. But I hope it has good glide with the stability of a slightly seasoned River. Or maybe it will do something else that I didn't realize that I wanted or needed in a fairway driver to be able to make my bag.

I've messed with different Rivers quite a bit....It seems like the River is almost always either turning or fading (albeit slowly), but it has so much glide it stays in the air for the full flight. In comparison, the FD is almost always locked onto it's line. So I feel like the River is more forgiving, but hard to have complete control over it's flight line. In contrast the FD is less forgiving as it is so straight, but I feel like I have complete control over it's line when I hit it right. Both discs have incredible glide, though I think the River is a bit easier to throw far (and FD is better in the wind).
