High PLH ones are very much more HSS and neither has a tremendous amount of LSS. Probably less than Star Valks and not too far from Champs but maybe a hair less. In appropriate weights that is. I have a 154 and a 165. 150s are rare mid 160s should be easier to find. The 154 flips a few degrees at full power and not at all with 90 % and i usually can't make the 165 track if it ain't a very good day. The 165 with a high PLH is bullet straight until the fade in calm weather at sea level for me. Both are VIP plastic so i don't know about Tournament Plastic.
On the note of Westside Discs, I've heard a lot of good things about the Sword. I was thinking of picking one up for a max D driver in the future. Is it a little easier to throw than a Star Wraith of similar weight? I really have to beat in a Star Wraith to make it useful for me, which is why I dont throw them anymore...they would fade out too soon.
Right now I get my lightly seasoned 170 C/S Valk 350' and sometimes close to 370' (rough estimation). How far should I be getting my Valks before I step up to something faster? I'm not wanting to step past speed 11. I plan on keeping Valks in my bag for a long time because of how much they bomb and shape lines. But when there's a touch of wind you gotta be careful. I didn't know if the Sword would be a straight shot with dependable fade that could handle some light winds. PD's would always take over in any big wind (or my FB). Let me know what you think.
