Banshee question

Postby Spike » Sun Sep 09, 2012 11:50 am

What is the physical difference between a Banshee and a Banshee L? How do I see the difference on the rim? Anyone?

I may have got it wrong. I thought that Banshee top + Eagle X bottom meant Banshee L. My Champion Banshee has a seemingly identical bottom wing as Eagle X, so that's why I'm asking.

That sounds like a normal banshee

Isn't the Banshee wing narrower though?

Here are the PDGA TSC measurements...

Banshee: 176.0/21.2/1.5/1.2/17.6/1.8/5.7/29.25/6.58
Eagle (1999+): 176.0/21.2/1.6/1.2/17.8/1.7/5.7/29.50/7.82

The numbers in bold have to do with the rim.

Banshee is much like an Eagle OS.

Hmmm, for some reason I remembered the Banshee was a speed 6, but it's a 7 after all. I also measured the Banshee and the Eagle-Xs I've got, exactly the same rim width, down to a tenth of a millimeter. And looking at the wing it really is very hard to distinguish between the two, in fact I can't tell them apart. The top is certainly different, but the wings are identical as far as I can see..

Yeah, the Banshee top has that concave up bit ~5-6 cm inward from the wing, and then a flatter center. I'm not sure it even makes much difference in the flight. In fact, after throwing so many blizzard discs with ridiculous variations in the shape of the top, I'm beginning to think that it really doesn't matter all that much.

Damn, all this talk about the Banshee, reminds me how much I love that disc, maybe time to put one back in the bag.
