Anyone ever heard of or seen this disc? I found one in the lake this weekend. It is a driver that has an avenger like rim but is very domy, moreso than a wraith. I will throw it soon and post a review. The disc looks like it will fly pretty well, but it is the domiest driver I've ever seen.

the plastic is similar to old gateway H plastic and suffers from the same problems as old H as well as pro/x in that it will warp/scrape faster than it will nick up.

the primitus is fairly stable but due to its profile can be slightly flippy into strong winds.

its probably closest to a slightly worn H spirit or a new quarter K. distancewise it's nothing special unfortunately.

I threw this disc some today. In the hand it feels very close to a predator, even with the sharp underside of the rim. Flies exactly like one too. Very overstable and wouldn't even come close to flipping in headwinds. Decent glide. Overall it is a fairly hefty overstable wind beater, but anyone who already throws a predator wouldn't need one. I think I'll stick to my flick for headwind distance.

hrm, maybe the proto i threw is different from the standard production runs.

i was getting a touch of turn on throws that started ~20 degrees hyzer into a ~15mph headwind.
