Your description for the striker says

"The flight at a 330ft drive is neutral with a very small fade at the end of the flightpath. "

What about the flight in the 380-400 range?

It depends on your technique, but I think you have to give it a small hyzer angle on a 400ft drive.
I´ve seen so many different techniques trough time and how they change the flight on the same disc. so it´s really hard to say how a disc fly, especially if you go further than 330ft. I think 330-350ft is a good lenght to judge discs flight characteristics. Allmost every player can relate to a 330ft drive, and people who can throw 500ft know that all discs become more unstable the more power you get it. I´ve only seen Jesper Lundmark and Linus Åström throwing Striker ~400ft. and they gave it a small hyzer angle.

Are you still on track for the new discs hitting the states in the next 2-3 weeks and are all 3 going to be released at the same time?

The first time of throwing 170 Zeroline Spike has impressed me. This flies like Innova XD both as a putter and a driving putter with two slight exceptions. As long as some moderation is used with arm speed and late acceleration and about 35 degree initial hyzer and a fairly high say 30'+ apex makes this baby fly very nicely. Hyzer flipped to flat. Very nose angle insensitive and unlike the XD it penetrates a lot better and on those lines doesn't lose a lot in distance to a Roc. Haven't done a direct comparison but this may have a mild edge of a couple of feet over an XD. Not sure of that though.

I think that if the plastic doesn't become a lot more softer in warm weather and is durable Timberwolf has found it's match/winner in the best overall plastic category. Hard to say about the feel with the added rough surface on top for extra grip. It works amazingly well. In cold and wet weather the grip is tremendous. Didn't try to grip outside of the roughened area. Why would one?

For small hands and those that have trouble gripping tall and/or beaded discs this is a tremendous disc. Even better in cold and wet weather. In the bag.
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 just got the sinus, spike, and wizard to try out. Even with the deeper rim the sinus ap is my favorite so far, plastic is stiff but grippy, great feel for putting and very overstable. The wizard is nice for driving, but the "soft" plastic is stiff and slippery and it's not as overstable as the sinus. The zeroline spike has the most comfortable grip for putting and held any line I threw it on, I'll be carrying the sinus and spike for a few more rounds until I can see which one I putt better with.

These new discs sound like they might replace most of the other drivers in my bag :)

Ye, I have similar experiences from when I used them. The Gripline Spike is more stable than the Zeroline. Zeroline plastic is very nice when wet and cold, probably my favorite. Gripline is nicer than ESP/Star when dry, but its no good when wet. They are longer than regular putters, probably because they arent as deep as regular putters. This is one of the reasons why I pulled them out. For me the Wizard is still no. 1 in dependable driving putter. Wind or no wind.
If you want a slightly longer driving putter or you dont like deep rims, give the Spike a try.
