sweet disc got a few protos from justin (@ gateaway) before christmas. Big distance driver with lots of glide. Flies similar to the diablo dt, but has the same lip as a roadrunner and lots of glide. Similar to a super beefy star roadrunner, great on a hyzer flip but ends on a hard hyzer. I like it:D

How durable is the plastic, TJ? I'm waiting for the sloppiness to go away before throwing mine. It does have a nice shape and a good feel.

just been throwing mine in the field beside my place, haven't really whacked anything yet. Plastic feels great. Got a chance to throw today some more, great distance disc.

Got my Assassin in the mail the other day. Took it out to the rugby field to test fly it. The disc is very similar to that of a TL in feel and flight. The speed and glide are better, with similar turn and fade. The disc feels pretty good in the hand and is very easy to control. This would make for a great tunnel driver as well. I may have a couple of the Assassin's out at the Ice Bowl if anybody would like to try one. I may even be able to work in a proto "Magic" possibly, but I will have to wait and see.

I gotta post something in here after this past weekend's tourney in Madrid. The Assassin is pure money. The disc flew absolutely perfect everytime I threw it. It flies quite a ways for a non-wide rimmed disc. If you haven't had a chance to try one out, you owe it to yourself to try one.

I picked up two a few weeks ago at the Iron Lion and they've been great. The plastic is a lot sturdier than it gets credit for and nearly replaces my Sabres for tunnel shots.
I play the game, but I don't keep score. I can't win or lose.

I read the above post that said good "D" for a non wide rimmed driver. Does that read as new player friendly? If so, I think I may have to get one of these to try out on my lunch hour practice throws. Any particular recommendations on weights or plastics?

Thanks! 8)

The assassin was created for any level player. For a lower power thrower it will be straight with a slight fade to it. For a mid level thrower it will turn a bit and then hyzer out at the end. For the power thrower it is good for hyzer flips and long turn overs. This disc has probably the best glide of any driver on the market.

Thanks Spike! How do you find picture files small enough to attach to your name? Isn't it like 9kb or smaller? Thanks!

Im loving my new Assassin. The hyzer flips are just phenominal! You can really adjust your power to make this disc glide for long or short.
