riptide = more stable wildcat

tsunami = less stable predator

riptide and tsunami

I found the riptide to be more like a viking or eagle. It is somewhat overstable and doesn't fly all that well. The tsunami is just what blake said, a less overstable predator. Of the two the tsunami is a better disc.

Squall's are money. I like mine which is 167 (if it's heavier it won't flip...) and it's almost like a slightly beat roc, but faster and slightly less glide. So butter...

the riptide is a modified wildcat.

i would agree on the comparison to a viking, but i believe a viking to be a more overstable wildcat flight as well. would also compare it to a first mold champ beast but is a little more stable.

riptide

To me a wildcat is a ton faster and longer than a riptide. It also glides better. I also agree that the squall is awesome. I found one a while back and love it.

i agree the wildcat is a bit faster and more glide than a riptide, but the stable runs of wildcats have also been of the same comparison to the regular wildcats (the stable ones have been described as "we ran them incorrectly" by discraft).

i was mainly stating that the riptide mold is a modification on the wildcat. the tsunami is a modified predator. the squall is a modified glide.
