reminds me of an old joke:

what's the difference between a strip tease and a trapeze act?

one is a cunning display of stunts


but seriously wtf is this Slitz/Blitz???

In the stamp's lettering you can see where they modified the S in the design to a B. Pretty funny. Reminds me of a Slayer shirt.

i was wondering why this stamp stuck out as crappy, i knew it was the B that was the problem but didnt realize the full extent......the slitz stamp would have been kinda cool though but also would have been the worst disc name ever

Unfortanely we stamped the discs before we called our US friends to check the name. Depending on were you live in the states the first name caused some problems... :oops: So.... we had to re-stamp them again with a small change. Second run will have a new stamp!

Great disc though :wink:

Don't be embarrassed. It is just funny. I'm sure the disc is awesome. I know several of us here would be glad to test out some protos to assure there are no future international faux pas!

We rarely have any protos, I think we changed one disc from a test run to the production run and that was the Riot. All other has come out like we wanted them to be. (eh... maybe not Primitus and Premiere edition Medius) But that was long ago...

Of course do we make test runs, but with 1041 rated player like Jesper, +580ft drives Linus Åström and with the skill we have in the company, can we test the discs quite good to see if we got what we wanted or not.
Making good and stable runs is actually the hardest part, not the design of the mold... (maybe i´ve been lucky so far :D )

Finding a good name can also be quite hard, especially when you sell them over the world. Some words can be really nasty in other languages :shock: About Slitz we choosed it for the "slit" it has in the rim and maybe also because it was easier to make a print of it. We knew it could be close to something else but hey, we are swedes :lol: :oops:

I hope you like it anyway! I feel very comfortable driving a low hard straight shot with it, it feels rock solid in the air. Today I average a distance of 430ft with my drives but it flies good for people with more armspeed than that. As you might know, give it to a pumped power grip, no spin, of axis guy and he probably gets it to flip... sigh. I never seen it happen though :)

So what does everyone think about the Trident now that you've tossed them? I do like mine, but haven't been able to get some real serious field time with it (rain, rain, rain since mine has arrived). I've put about 15 pulls on it in the meadow.

Oh and tumpsi, mine are table top flat. So is my XXX I just picked up.

but then again i'm not a 990 rated player


Avenger-SS is a good disc for flipping flat...I always keep an ESP mold in my bag. While I can get it to do just about anything backhand but never had much luck throwing it forehand.

Anyways, I'm not sure if this makes me want to try the Striker or not...is the plastic as nice as ESP?
