I've got an S-Freak(PD) and S-Hysteria(DD) on the way. I will post my thoughts when they get here (Should be Monday).
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.

My S and P PDs will be in today, to bad I'm out of town. I wish I would have got a P DD. Oh well.

I didn't have to stay out of town, so I just got home to these. All 4 Freak PDs, 2 S 2 P, and all of them are domey. I was hoping for flatter S. The wing looks like a stretched out TB and the to looks like a DD.

I should get out tomorrow or Sunday to toss them.

Also, do you guts think the PD could fill the role of a TB and a Boss when using new and worn in?

It could be possible, but I've never thrown the boss so I'm not sure. I think Dave_D said it could replace the teebird and starfire slot.

it will surely be a bit shorter than a Boss (although ive not tried the P line)
and it will be a bit harder to get it to hold an anny like a TB (maybe a beat pro?)

other than those i cant see any problems, only thing is if you never liked the OLF you probly wont dig these either

When these break in, do they maintain a lot of the HSS like a teebird?

I don't think anybody has actually beat one up enough yet, at least as far as the s-line is concerned. The p-line was just barely released, so I think the few us are going to have to do some disc beating to find out.

I do have high hopes though, Dave_D seemed to be very impressed with the mold, and apparently has one in the bag now.

I would say so. The Pro plastic beats in to have a little flip at high speeds, but you'd expect that from that particular plastic blend. I have a 1st run S that I tuned to make it (sorta) flippy, and it's still got good HSS.

Not to shabby. I got about 20 tosses with them and they did act like my seasoned boss and newish teebird, but right inbetween speed wise. I was getting these to about 400 with a few 20-30 longer. It does pop up and lock into flat very nicely.

I can't wait to season them up to delay the fade up. For the time being, these are my only driver in the bag.

That sounds about right. What I really like about this disc is that it fades very slowly, and still goes forward as it fades. I can also flex the piss out of this one similar to the way I can flex a teebizzle. The disc looses some of it's lss without loosing hss after a while. It just straightens out :).

It sounds like you just described a DX Teebird.
