More like SL for me yet different. The TP Boatman i have flies straight longer and then takes a more abrupt quicker tilting and dropping fade. I haven't done a head to head comparison distance wise so i cannot really say. My Boatman is not that fast and long so i might get the SL or Starfire farther. I haven't thrown those in a while.
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.

I think you might have a flatter domed Boatman-L(just made that up). I've got a blue tournament boatman that is much less HSS and LSS than the other three tourneys I throw. BTW, it makes me smile when I read others bitching about the consistancy of molds from certain manufactures and not others. All four of my tournament boatman have a varing degree of dome yet the PLHs are about the same.


I think I'm going to pull my stable orc and give that blue Boatman-L a shot for controlled stable distance.

If you want a hard hook left in the end of the flight. I'd see what a Leopard and a River does for you distance wise first.
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.

I get zero high speed turn from my VIP boatman, and a sharp fade, this is a great over-stable driver. It flies straight and long into the wind.

If the above description sounds palatable with consistency get a VIP and if you want some flipping especially into a headwind TP could be better at least the grip is a little tackier.
