A friend of mine had got his hands on a proto and told me that it felt very good. Hadn't had a chance to throw it yet though. According to him they'll be available in Finland on Friday so hopefully I'll get a chance to try one out as well.

I got my Pro PDs on Saturday, and got in 9 holes with some friends in the rain on Sunday. These seem to be faster than the S line, and have great glide. I was throwing them on anhyzers (like I do with new S PDs), and they were staying straight longer than a new S. Once the LSS gets beat out of these (maybe even some of the HSS), they're going to fly great.

Jesse, you better buy some of these.

I got my P-PDs this afternoon and promptly went to the course. I was throwing a 175 S-PD that's been in the bag for about 5 months along side the new 175 P-PD.
Definitely feels more like the older Innova driver Pro, not R-Pro. Good thing to me. Excellent grip, and like Furthur, the Pro seemed faster to me. Not quite as LSS, but about the same HSS. I can't wait to get this thing beat in.

I'm loving them. The Star is still predictably stable, it's the Innova Christmas disc, been in the bag since I got it. I've also had a Pro in the bag since they came out, and it's pretty awesome as well. Great grip, just the right dome (for me) and still predictably stable. It throws a lot like an X Predator, with it is slowly replacing in my bag. It really reminds me of a faster TB. I like them.

Wishing I would have got one earlier. I finally broke down and bought some new stuff to try out and the S line PD has seen the most action since they arrived. It could be bumping the Tsunami (my teebird/eagle disc) out of my bag. Bit more distance with the PD and the disc feels so much better in my hands as far as rim comfort and grip. Doesn't get the skip so may have to keep a Tsunami in the bag for those shots depending on the course but a PD will always be in the bag no matter what course.

X Pred is a good comparison. But with a much nicer feeling lip.

Any big differences between the S line PD and Freak S Line PD? Just different stamps I assume?

I didn't get any S line Freak PD's, just P. No difference in feel other than the plastic. The P is domed a little more, but that's to be expected. I'm guessing it's just a difference in stamps.

Dave, as much as you like the Teebizzle, I think the PD would fit well into your game. You'll probably end up not keeping them in your bag in lieu of Teebirds, but it's worth a shot :). They're every bit as HSS stable (and a little more LSS) than a Star Tee.
