I'm thinking of getting one on monday but would be interesting to hear if their ratings are even close to how it flies.

And how do they differ in flight from Archon and Flow.
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.

Boatman looks interesting. Domey, Destoyer-width wing, HUGE overstable scoop wing. Haven't thrown it and wouldn't get a good read anyway (too fast). Looks stable though.

here ya go, nerds. this is as pure of a wing-on view as could be shot. in other words, i feel this photo shows no distortion of form due to how i angled the disc.

Looks a lot like a Flow with a slightly blunter nose. Damn. I love the PD2, but if I had something that felt just like my Flow only more overstable and in OPTO, I may have to go with it.

I know I'm risking pissing off the Finns here, but I have a REAL hard time believing that Lat64 doesn't have major input when Westside is engineering their molds. The similarities between Westside and Lat64 discs are too uncanny.

If it's like a flow that works in the wind, I have a huge stack of blitzes to get rid of... :(

Success?
I got a prototype to try but it prolly wasn't the final design. Wing/edge section was a bit different than Leopard's pic
