Well, I was bored so I called DGA and they are being sent out today and tomorrow to retailers. If anyone is playing the mad city open this weekend, it is going to be the disc in the players pack I guess.

I heard its like a 2010 ace race disc with a deeper rim, different plastic, and flies nothing like a mid.

Sounds interesting. I've been meaning to give the Force a shot again, but I've been stuck on Destroyers this spring. Maybe I'll give them another shot and pick up one of these to compliment it.

So I lied, i did not get the opportunity to throw one today but will for sure in the AM tomorrow. They will be tested against ESP Surges and Z Forces. Gut feeling says slight high speed turn and sharp low speed fade. The rim feels a big weird as it's kinda like a Talon with the sharp cuts and not just one smooth edge if that makes any sense.

Not really a notch, but just sharper cuts. Pics might be hard as I can't find the power cord for my digital camera.

There has been talk of the Hurricane since '05-'06...The original test Hurricanes from years ago were retooled Flashes...Different top, same bottom/core. When someone said something about a Force-L I thought it was something new...Now with this talk of a notch, I'm wondering if it is the same retooled Flash that it was 5 years ago...
