If it flies as advertised, this will probably be the first thing they've come out with in years that I will throw.

Been stuck in this range where a wraith just fades too much for quite some time so... yeah that.

why would we use drift? it's faster to type than turnover. but we do use turn which is faster than drift. I'm just trying to keep conversation going.

Turnover is a pretty specific term though.

Yeah, drift's not really that clear on what it means as a term for DG. I didn't even realise you wanted to replace turnover with it. No thanks.

And if you're seriously so lazy that you're trying to change a term because it has couple too many letters for you to type, well... :)

Any good info on this disc?

I picked up one of the cfr ones and have only had a chance to throw it few times. Bottom looks very similar to mamba with a near flat wing having a turn down near the inner lip. No idea on the top. Initial thoughts are that the disc is a fairly straight flyer with some turn and a long forward fade. Havent thrown enough to see really though.

So....has anyone tossed these yet? I fondled some at PIAS today and they felt great in the hand. Is there any reason to throw these over a Wraith?

these are what the archon should have been. nice and straight with gradual turn and slow late fade. reminded me of a seasoned old run star wraith i had .

My 150g Blizz Kraits are pretty much indistinguishable from 150g Blizz Wraiths.

YES, exactly. I was so disappointed with the Archon, such a flippy piece o' shit. These things fly great, out of the box, in champ plastic. It's a beautiful thing. I'd wager over time that it'll beat in to a state similar to a Sidewinder-ish flight, which will still be useful to me. The biggest complaint i've seen thus far is that they fade out hard at the end of the flight but I really can't say I've noticed it as THAT extreme. Yeah they fade out and I guess I would call it a bit more abrupt than a Wraith... Maybe not, I seriously don't notice it that much. It flies pretty damn straight 90% of the flight and maybe drops 15-20 feet left of that line fairly suddenly. It's a good disc and I hope people give it a chance.
I am dumb.

...and a drama queen.

Both. If I really minutiae-ize it, maybe the Krait has a few cm less turn & a few cm less fade, and is an iota flatter & "beefier" feeling in the hand, but the differences are so minimal that I would expect them not to be evident in a blind head-to-head comparison.

I read your post in the blizzard thread after posting here, and you pretty much answered my follow up question. So the fade still is pretty far left? Not significantly straighter to warrant carrying both?

For me, I can't imagine carrying both, as the differences are de minimus. Every player should be his own judge, though (especially considering the wild inconsistency between runs/specimens of Blizzard discs).

Gonna throw a bliz krait today, but i have already thrown a sparkle champ and it seems to have a ton of potential, personally would like one in a sexy blend of star, but even then idk if it has a slot in the bag with my curren setup, nice disc tho

Any more updates on the Krait?

I'm eyeing this as a distance driver. I've thrown Star Wraiths before, but they require a beating for me to get them to a point where they don't lose distance because of their fade. I've also thrown Archons but found them to turn and fade too much. From what this sounds like, it could fit the bill for a good distance driver in my power range - 350' max on flat ground, no wind.
