Just got two (170 and 172), and based on a quick test of 10 throws it's just what it says on the tin. They turn easily and consistently, it's quite easy to learn how to flip them right. They reminded me of the Valkyrie in the sense that even though it flips quite a bit it still has a very definite bite at the end of the flight, which helps it come back a bit when it slows down. On a couple of throws where I threw it just a wee bit high and turned it to flat it actually faded quite harshly.
So yeah, a shallow hyzer or flat release and a high throw will yield a nice glidey curve to the right (RHBH) and a bit more hyzer and you can throw it like you'd throw a slightly faster Valkyrie. I was throwing them around 380-390', if you throw like 440' they might be a bit too understable for you, but people around the 400' mark should feel at ease. They will turn even on a sub 350' throw, just not as much, and I think it'll be an excellent distance driver for people in that range. The plastic was really nice and gummy, and looked like the FR S-PD plastic (well my yellow FR S-TD2 did), just softer, and pretty dang grippy. It does feel a bit shallow, that's about the only thing I didn't like about them, not that it bothers me unduly. The flight was nice, the plastic was nice, the overall feel despite the shallow profile was nice, it's just a nice disc. Too bad I can't use a disc like this on our course, I think it'd make the bag. Well, I'll pack it in the travel bag.
