Haven't seen them anywhere yet. Summon JR.

EDIT: Release date is June 8th, so we'll know after that.

You called?

Haven't heard of public tests yet so who knows? Rim width, height and rim height are the same as the Flow and Sword has fade numbering reminiscent of the Opto Flow fade. Hmmm. Sword needs less force to bend.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Westside recently changed their site and there's a bunch of info not there anymore, like the wing profile chart for one. The impression I had from Westside of what their intent was with the Sword is to have a more overstable compliment to the King much as the Boatman is a more overstable compliment to the Northman. Wait and see I guess.
...there was a time when you were taught to find the best disc for you, not the best disc for your situation on the course, which is how they are sold now. IMO, the flight charts are basically there to point out all the stuff you dont have in your bag and why you suck.

King wing width is 23 mm Sword is 22. So they are a different speed.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I stand corrected.

I had the release date Westside had stated in my head and checked with their site before posting. I try to stay away from retailer's sites as I already buy too damn many discs as it is.

Nowhere in sight.

Westside Discs wrote:Our current plan is to make two or three more molds. First is a very understable midrange driver called Westside Deer (Westside Hiiden Hirvi in Finnish language). Second is a stable midrange called Westside Warship (Westside Pursi in Finnish language). We are now talking of releases no earlier than spring 2012.

In case we release a third disc after these two, it is likely going to be an ultra fast wide-rim driver called Westside World (Westside Maailma in Finnish language). We try to innovate this disc to be faster than anything before. It is going to take a long time before this driver hits the shops, so do not expect anything soon.
