Jokeri - rhyno but better
Midari - OK, stableish
Respecti - OS, reliable modern fairway, deep grip
Legenda - low power distance, shallow grip
Slaidi - overstableish, wraith esque, maybe bit faster. Me likey.

My Slaidi in Premium plastic fades early and hard more like beefier Destros than Wraiths and it flies at Wraith speeds so it will be shorter than both.
Jokeri is a great deal faster and longer than the Rhyno and a bit glidier. And won't lose the fade so easily meaning at about 240' low line drive.
My premium Midari is iffy in the wind and at high power. At 90 % it is straight (no flipping) in calm conditions and it gets unpredictable at 100 % sometimes turning more than at others. But it could be me because i know that my wrists roll anny at high power when i'm tired. What makes me wonder is that this happens to the Midari on good days too when other discs won'y turn at full power.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Just got in a lot
2 Premium Jokeri
1 Premium Leganda

The Jokeri feel amazing and the plastic is the nicest feeling champ/opto plastic ive ever held
The Leganda is SUPER clear and almost looks like glass. What does this compare to flight wise?

Purchased a couple premium Jokeris 176g. Deep rim and definitely stable, slightly moreso than my Champ Rhyno which is by no means new. The most noticeable difference between those two discs is Rhyno has a bead. I'm finding I like that bead for putting, but I didn't really need a putter anyway. What I'm liking about Jokeri as it can be thrown at full power with no worry that it will turn, and with some fade but not a ton. Fits when I want more stability than a Pure but less speed and fade than a Gator. Haven't thrown it into a strong headwind yet but can't imagine this disc will flinch in anything short of a hurricane.

Because my Gator has a bead, I feel more comfortable using it for big sweeping jump-putt hyzers. Honestly, I think when I carry both a Rhyno and Gator I start to over-think which to use too much because they both have beads, whereas I'm okay letting the Jokeri wait for its utility moment.

Any rumors for new prodiscus molds for 2013?

or have they already announced them and I missed it?

He's got at least 1 fairway driver on its way, Saint ball park if I understood correctly, and (if he takes my advice...) another fairway possible.

Sweet, I'd give that Respecti a shot. Throw the Legenda in the bin though, that plastic sucks for that mold.

btw... Sounds like Kai might have taken my advice on the next fairway driver! I'll sum it up like this, I asked him to go "old school" and "make us a better Gazelle". He was pretty receptive so here's to hoping!

Kai is good at throwing 300' lasers low so he is a touch placement thrower and prior to starting his company his go to driver was a Teebird. Meaning even with that power at Tali Open last year he did well in masters despite the fact that many holes need way more power to get to the green than his bread and butter drives. He knows what a good FW driver is and has a preference for them so i am interested in what his interpretation will be like and how the plastic will feel and what the durability is like across plastics.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
