Westside King - The speed 14 driver

6th July 2010 Westside King's mold making started

The computer generated picture below shows our next disc, the Westside King. The speed class of this wide-rim driver is supposed to be 14, which would make Westside King the fastest disc in the market.


Allright, I like Destroyer and Boss but really? Speed 14 driver. :shock:

speed is just an arbitrary number. There is no scale that I'm aware of. They could call it a speed 19 driver if they wanted to.

They're using the latitude scale where Halo is listed as speed 13, but we shall see if their predictions of the speed actually hold true when they get it out from the mold.

Personally, I'd get my discs out of the mold before I touted them as the "fastest (legal) disc on the market", but that's just me. I look forward to trying one.

Aye, their statement has pretty much zero value until they can actually demonstrate they have a 14 speed disc.

Hopefully not, the molds aren't designed or built by latitude so it's a good start...

How about a slanted and grooved rim? That'd be the greatest thin evar, right?

I hate the slanted rim for BH but love it for FH. The riot has such a smooth release FH.

slanted, grooved rim with dimples that 2.8 cm and a thumb track perfect.
