I have a slightly different experience than above. My flat 171 could handle a headwind if give 15 degrees hyzer. The winds I was throwing in was about 10-15 mph with burst a little more. The striker penetrated surprisingly well and was going a straight line to a slight turnover and small
fade. My throws were going 350ish and I normally throw it 380-390 in calm. It is not going to be amazing but it can handle some.
The reason I started this thread is to get the word out about this amazing disc that otherwise might not be well known because it is not a mainstream company.
I will agree with that also, what is strange is that my 171 is better into a headwind than my 175. The Striker can and will fly in a headwind and it will do it fairly well, but it will not forgive you of any form mistakes made.
For my throwing style/game I would just rather throw a disc that can handle the headwind in a more forgiving/consistent manner. I do have 400+ power but I also know how to tone it down for the disc.
**No matter what though, EVERYONE go buy a Stiker
and you will NOT be disappointed because no matter what level you are at in this game the Striker can and will do something for you.**
