Legacy is making me feel Patriotic!

Postby JHern » Sun Feb 03, 2013 1:58 pm

Holy crap, I can't say enough about the Patriot. I threw a red pearly pinnacle yesterday, and it was a dream disc. Also threw a silver sparkle proto. Awesome, awesome, awesome.

Think of a longer Leopard. Easy to control high speed turn, long stable phase, and then gentle hyzer finish. I was throwing 350' with ease from about 5˚ hyzer. This is going to be a disc that can do everything, I'm excited to work with them some more, it might be the one I've been waiting for, the one that finally challenges the ESP Cyclone for the prime slot in my bag.

Seriously, this is the best new disc I've thrown in years, you have to try it!

If they are going anywhere, they should go to me.

I have a Star Leo that i cannot turn at full power and Champs flip around 3 degrees so the Patriot might be flippier for me which is not nice but not totally a killer if the fade is as little or less than with a Leo. Or the fade is the same as in a Champ but the flight is longer. River GL is longer with more fade. I'm always in the market for a longer straight flight meaning straighter than River the benchmark for longer than Leo but as little fade as possible disc. So my interest is piqued depending on the distance and fade vs the Champ Leo.
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.

Have to say, I love the experimental sparkle blend PATRIOT I've been throwing. So damn smooth and controllable.

Thanks to Zam letting me know Disc Nation wasn't planning on a custom, I got inspired and came up with this design.

The always awesome Disc Nation will have these and Legacy 1st runs soon.
Ricos are starting to ship out the PATRIOTS this week so get ready.
Go Legacy!

Patriot sounds like an EL. Perhaps longer?

I should have mine soon. I think EL is a good comparison. It's what I wanted the FD to be

Heh, I know Dave is eyeing one in particular. :D

It turns, but the rate of turn is slow, not flippy. The Pinnacle will turn ~10˚ at 350' power, but very gradual. 7˚ hyzer release is money for full flight with line drive 10' apex. It flies like discs fly in a dream.
