How does it differ in shape from production S-Lines and does it differ in flight lines? My S 175 fades twice as much as a C leo or even more. It has a really tall dome and i think it could be a lemon differing from others. And it flips more than a Leo c 175 much more.
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.

Mine is an orange one. Pretty tall dome, nice stiff, yet surprisingly grippy plastic... A lot grippier than the S-line at least. 8)
The fade is pretty much non-existent, then again I haven't thrown Leos much, but think of a seasoned Star TL.
Handles a lot more power than the S-line. And glides on forever. :shock: I mean, I can get this disc go a lot further than a PD, with less power.
I don't know how it will work for others, but for me this disc is da bomb. Long, dead straight shots, with almost no fade = Perfection.

Leo is much straighter than the TL and the S FD i have fades about identical to my TLs. So out semantics vary. Sidewinder and River fade significantly less than the FD i have. In Teebird era the FD would have been the benchmark for straightness of flight in drivers but not any more. So i understand why some call the FD straight. I call it straightish belonging to the same camp as MJLS and TL fade wise.

Since I couldn't find any c-fd's anymore I tried out an interesting combo on the driving range this morning

Champion ArchAngel and S-FD. they compliment each other really well. They have the same top and really the speed 7/8 difference isn't noticeable. Just figured put that thought in folks minds as nice stable version of the FD

there is a run of CFR C-AA. They are in the mold that is more stable(old mold). The plastic is grippy, flexy and really nice. The heavies are banshee stable

The C FD is nowhere near the same as a C AA

I know that, I haven't thrown it yet. I was just noting that it makes a nice compliment to the FD in general. If someone wanted 2 discs that felt similar in the hand this is a great pairing. I'm probably going to use a C-AA and S-FD as the only drivers for my casual bag

I got ya. I read it as if you can't get a C FD, get a C aa.

I have 2 otw to me, will have them this week, both 170-172 domey and light blue S lines. If this is another S-TD pos im gonna be bummed. I looked forward to the TD so much and when i finally got one in S line max weight it was wayyyyy beefier than what i assumed it would be. Maybe i got a freak TD but i was under the assumption they were slightly more hss sidewinders and that isnt what i got at all

TDs are kinda beef, just give them some time and break them in. They are so so so nice.

Funny I just got a c-aa in the mail. Threw it this morning into a strong head wind and your right it is banshee stable.

I too was let down by the TD. The FD is awesome though. A nice turner right off the shelf.

Broke down and snagged two max weight red sFDs, they are nice and grippy with a dome that flattens at the top. Does anyone else have flattened dome FDs? I should be getting out to throw them today and will report back with findings.

That sounds like the ones I bought. For the most part they had less HSS than my tester/proto. I preferred my beat up tester over the stock run. From what I have seen domey Jackals are the better ones. The flat ones don't glide as well so if you throw them at a high speed they get kinda dumpy/touchy and don't penetrate forward as well
