I like the VIP King. I used it for most of my max D shots for close to a year. My merlot red Kings started off the most stable, then the dark blue, then the purply red, and the light color green was more flippy than the yellow tournament King I had along the lines of the orange colorshifts I had. I like the King for tailwind shots where I could release it flat and get a stable straight flight with very late reliable fade. On a flatish release the merlot kings handle a slight headwind, turn a second, then fade 20-30' where into the same 10mph headwind the dark blue turnover 10-15 feet before fading back just left of neutral.
I've had some 450' pulls with my 150 blizzard boss and one really far 157 blizzard boss throw that flipped 30' right into a moderate headwind fading back to just right of neutral and in the middle of the lake I was trying to clear. I'll probably buy some more bliz bosses but picking them up in good used condition isn't easy. Folks snatch them up quickly on DGCR and get $12 for new where used everything else is $7-9 for non-Lat/Westside plastic.
I was measuring all my disks with the King as a benchmark and the Sword was longer than the King for me. I think it can take a slight anny and flex for more distance where too much anny on a king can go right and stay right. Also left to right winds pushes my kings way right. The Sword also loves the flatish release, which I prefer, has enough HSS to really get on it and the LSS isn't destroyer not going to be flipped massive fade.
I had a ESP Nuke that I threw in a lake last year that I could really bomb. My problem with Nukes is that when I really want to crush one out there the Nukes occasionally have a mind of there own and I end up with a 300' ah shit
Only two Swords, Kings, Bosses, and Nukes. Willing to trade for more Swords, pretty please... don't tell my wife
