I'm glad you guys are as amped as we are! The Whitler is due for release may 1. We have been in contact with a number of dealers in hopes of getting our product to as many of you out there as are interested. If there are dealers we have not contacted we can be reached at: email@example.com
To answer the latest questions, in all honesty I really don't know what to compare the debut plastic (aka. "A-S2") to. In terms of durability it is comaprable to champion or Z plastic. It has better, but similar grip to pro, x, or gateway's H, but bares a memory (or elasticity) far more extreme. Glen Whitlock (the guy/tour-ist we worked with on this disc) calls the reaction of the Whitler to impact "Tremble Technology" because the disc has such an immediate reaction to impact and absorbs the energy readily. The end result is that the disc is better absorbed by the chains! It's actually quite an amazing thing.
As for a retail price, it will fall in the premium (i.e. champ or Z) range.
The flight characteristics are easy to describe. This is the most accurate disc within 100ish feet. The Whitler flys true on any edge. It can hold a absolutely straight line without any fade. We (the partners in Snap) all loved the Skystreak, but found it didn't stay in the chains that well. This disc flys a little like a beat skystreak, except quite a bit slower and with much better chain reaction.
Keep the questions coming...
