Very. Can't wait for mine to arrive. Nothing I can do with them until the snow melts though...

any word if these are in the states yet would love to pick up a couple? If not I guess I can wait for marshalls but that does not solve my immediate gratification gene!!

Got my two jokeris in today! The clear premium one is possibly literally the clearest disc I've ever seen. Gonna get some throws in with them tonight.

Got some good throws in with them against wizards, XDs, and rhynos.

First off, they feel great in my tiny hands, it's a little deeper than a XD and about the same feel as a rhyno. The plastic on the base line is nice and grippy and the premium plastic was a little slick until I dyed it and washed it off. The plastic got much grippier after that though.

They do throw a lot like a new wizard or BB aviar but is a little faster and less glidey than either (the extra speed and less glide kinda cancel each other out distance wise). It's almost like a BB aviar and a rhyno had a baby. There is not a lot of difference between the base and premium plastic flight wise or glide wise. They have some good HSS and the LSS is about the same as a slightly beat rhyno. I threw them into a mild headwind, tailwind and crosswind. They fought the headwind quite well and thrown flat they turned a bit but fought back easily, same in some L to R crosswind. They were quite stable in the tailwind. The one thing I noticed that set them apart from the other putters is they weren't very forgiving of nose up throws. That might change as they beat in though.

I think this will really appeal to a few different demographics:

1) people who like wizards/BB aviars/Challengers but find the grip deep

2) people who find discs like the zone or rhyno a bit too overstable.

3) people who never really got a hang of throwing putters off the tee. It feels a lot like a beadless mid in the hand and if you have problems for whatever reason throwing a putter off the tee, this is a disc worth trying out.

Meh. That makes it sound much less appealing

What about thrown next to a Magic? It looks like a blunt nose with a high-ish parting line, plus it's got that flat spot instead of a bead. Not sure about the technical names...
