btw... Sounds like Kai might have taken my advice on the next fairway driver! I'll sum it up like this, I asked him to go "old school" and "make us a better Gazelle". He was pretty receptive so here's to hoping!


It has already been made, it was called the Cyclone.


I'll probably try to go with a bag filled with finnish molds (Prodiscus/West Side) next summer. There are still some gaps with those two manufacturers.

Cause no one's every built a better mouse trap the 2nd time around, right?

I think I spoke prematurely anyway, speed 7-8 (stated on facebook) sounds more like the Fairway driver Kai wanted to make in the first place.
I am dumb.

Westside will release new discs too so maybe the gaps will go away with the new releases.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Got a chance to toss a LASERi today. Nice disc! At 280' it flew nice and straight with a short, predictable dump, and a buddy's 350' throw had a tick of high-speed turn but still with the predictable finish. It has a beefy nose that looks like it will be a good wind fighter. Notched/concave wing, and not domey. "Faster gazelle" seems pretty apt...

350' with some turn in calm weather without OAT does not equal headwind beater. Was there a headwind for your buddy and/or did he OAT? When new doesn't one speed faster Gazelle spell Teebird?

It was calm and afaik his throw was close to flat, but he had been torquing things over slightly all morning, so there might have been a little OAT on that throw. The turn was really subtle.

Yeah "faster gazelle" would sort of describe a teebird, but unlike the teebird's gliding fade, the laseri's was later and steeper, more like an eagle.

Another friend who only throws FH liked it too, which maybe says something about the stability?

I only saw these three throws so it's hard to say a lot more, except that I'll definitely be picking up a few. :D

Sounds like a pretty damned nice disc, gotta pick one for testing I think.

Sounds good so far and does not surprise me since Kai used to throw Teebirds.

Here are the specs for the Laseri -- it's the same speed as a PD or OLF, so I guess technically it's more of a "control" driver than a fairway driver.

Prodiscus Laseri
Diameter: 21.1, Rim thickness 1.9, Height: 1.6, Rim depth: 1.1, Inside rim diam: 17.2

Discmania PD
Diameter: 21.1, Rim thickness 1.9, Height: 1.7, Rim depth: 1.2, Inside rim diam: 17.3

Millennium Orion LF
Diameter: 21.1, Rim thickness 1.9, Height: 1.5, Rim depth: 1.2, Inside rim diam: 17.4

Discnation has made a nice promotional video for the Prodiscus discs.



There's also a new plastic called "Ultrium" coming soon. Kaitsu said it's somewhat comparable to Star (at least the look).

Star plastic seems to provide the best grip for me. I am not a fan of the Prodigy type plastic. Tried out an M3 yesterday in high heat and humidity... it got soft and slippery. Not a fan. I would take regular champ plastic over Opto / Prodigy plastic any day.

Tried Varsi's Ultrium Slaidi, more like gummier, more opaque and grippier Premium than Star.

I just watched the DN vid and noticed the Slaidi had -2, 2 flight numbers. The Devan Owens sig Slaidi I tested (best high end plastic in the market, IMO) was more 0 turn 3 fade, like a beefier boatman, as on the Prodiscus website. What am I missing :?:

Also, does the basic plastic still beat up and clover very quickly?

My Slaidi is premium and more like 3.5 or 4 LSS so i don't think you are missing anything and the official manufacturer numbers are too straight in the end and too flippy in the beginning.

Basic Slaidi does become understable very fast. In premium, I can't make that thing flip.
