ew, ew, EW, EW, EW, GROSS.

#1 thing I hate about Cores: Fliptastic at high speed.
I am dumb.

I only have one core that is flippy at high speed. All the rest go 350+ nails straight with ease. They also power down very nicely. I'm actually kinda surprised with your response Jero.

We did not apparently throw the same kind of Pursi/Warship proto then. The one i threw was fast and i gave my initial impressions of the proto in another thread earlier, but no sense in deleting this one now that there are other impressions of a different disc. I'm sure that Varsi and Jub threw the same disc. And reasonably certain about me throwing a different individual. Having thrown other Westside protos and owning one mother of overstable King Proto that never made it to production i think that only production versions count and who knows how much they will vary from one disc to the other and how wild the variances are.

The one i threw was fast for a mid. A mid i say but a tweener one at that and fast and long. The one i threw turned around 3-4 degrees at full power and started at a very slow rate fairly early in the flight making for an interesting and a useful flight path if you plan on using more than one mid. The overall fade was around the same as an E Scout that i threw in the same session, but the onset of fade was earlier and most of the fade was super slow with hardly any r>l motion at all. Perfect for straight then slightly left tunnels. It's as long as the Scout, which means among the longest mids out there. So it would seem that the individuals i tested vs the one jub and Varsi threw are different from each other. I trust their opinions so i think nobody knows how the production ones some out.

Fuse? Way more HSS than that, but needing a few degrees initial hyzer to flip to flat at 315' IIRC and a different fade, but only a few more feet of fade. Can handle more power in the drive by a large margin. I have not encountered so HSS Comets and each Comet i've thrown fades a few feet less. So this is not the best tunnel disc when new for lasers, but break it in and it may have the least hyzer requirements for an absolute laser out to so long distances. Buzzz is shorter, MD2 almost as long but less power handling and Warrior and Scout vary in flight paths. A very broken in S Warrior may fade as little with having as much HSS, but i haven't worn mine to that condition. A new S Warrior starts the fade later and hooks more to the left by a third or so. I would not trust any of the discs i mentioned in this thread in a headwind other than the Buzzz if a glo Z wasn't picked up. Unless you gauge the wind right and have no gusts and can estimate the added hyzer requirement right and perform a clean shot without OAT.

I think that if the production versions come out close to how the one i threw was and how the one jub and Varsi threw, it will be a long and great understable mid. Not suitable to heavy winds. But time wil tell how the production runs turn out. Until that it is idle speculation.
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.

A flippy Core? That sounds disappointing. On the other hand, a less flippy Fuse sounds cool.

I've only seen the disc. You mean Tursoke and Jub.
It did look very pretty and felt good in hand!

Yeah, it's one of the prettiest mids I've held in my hand. I guess we have to wait till the production models come out for the final verdict.

Lots of really tough competition out there in the midrange market. It went from a Buzzz vs. Roc title fight to a free-for-all cage match with Lat64, MVP, and Discmania releasing some really interesting mids and putters in the last couple years.

There are so many good [and pretty] discs now that:

might be the only way to distinguish yourself and sell slower discs like midranges...

totally... and in a premium plastic, it would be a pretty fun disc to throw for sure.

Looking forward to this one.

The one i threw is faster than Buzzzes. No bead for the Warship either and fairly similar height. A guy put a Wasp beside the Warship and removing the bead was about the only shape difference between those. Interesting. Today was the competition where the disc was on display. Dunno if it was released for sale to public yet because i wasn't there. Injured and slipped and fell down yesterday which did not help.
