Who knows. I'd like to try them, but I'm pretty happy with my S Lines.

I'm looking forward to trying the C-lines. CDGS got in kind of a crappy selection of SFDs (including a good number that should have been X-outs due to sinks in the wing) and haven't yet sold enough to order more, so I haven't found any new ones I like.

They make great out of the box turning drivers. It's hard to keep them from ending up far right.

The D lines are fun to mess around with but are not that useful really.

I have thrown the C-FD's...wasn't really any different than throwing the S-FD. It might have a small touch more stability...but not worth the premium they are bringing($20 last I checked). I would like to check out a D-FD for rollers. Sounds like it might be pretty easy to roll.

Definitely easy to make it turn enough, but I don't think they'll stand up for very long. Personally I'd rather throw something more stable with a bigger anhyzer.

Would anybody be able to make a comparison between an S-FD and an X-XL? Descriptions make the FD seem similar with a bit more turn?

Edit- i'm realizing comparisons to beat Roc make it sound like a longer Cyclone, which would be AWESOME.

I know I'm too old with my 90's discs....

They do kill it quick turning rollers though.

The higher PLH sure sounds great for my tastes. I don't know the dome height influences this disc so it's difficult to even guess into the direction and amount of changes it makes. But the higher PLH can't hurt. I'm cautiously optimistic about this direction and am eagerly waiting for comparisons to S-Lines.
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.
