Review: Repeat of the other 2 reviews, it could be more durable, but is a great stable floater. If you keep turning over your Dragons, and like the way a ROC flies.....buy one. This disc feels and flies almost exactly like a ROC made of hard cheap plastic. They get beat up fast so watch the trees. They are way more stable than Dragons and last longer. Very predictable flight, not bad distance, for an approach/midrange disc, it is not a driver, by modern standards.

Review: I originally bought this disc because it was a floater and was supposed to be straight. I am not disappointed. It is not as durable as I would like, but it fills a slot in my bag that exists for water hazzards and I dont throw it on tree rich holes. It is straight straight straight with a little fade at end of flight. I'd have to say its a neutral stable flyer for me. I can put a little anhyzer on it for a slow slight helix, or a little hyzer for a flat flip up. It's not a long driver, more like a control driver. I can pretty much pick my landing spot with this one.

My Review:
Lightning's #2 Driver is a fast, slightly overstable driver. It has a shallow rim with "grip rings" and a very thick flight plate. It has fairly decent resistance to turnover for a straight driver, slightly more than that of a KC Gazelle probably closer to that of a lighter weight X2. It's low speed fade is slightly more than that of an XL but a little less than a Cheetah. The #2 Driver's overall flight path is fairly straight at a speed similar to that of a Cheetah but maybe a bit slower. It has decent glide for a long range driver but there are longer discs on the market. The #2 Driver will fly fairly straight for most players but might be a bit too overstable for a beginner. The upside of this disc is that it floats in water at any weight. The downside is that the plastic is not very durable and prone to warping. I only throw this disc when I am around water hazards but I will say that it is probably the longest floating disc on the market available in the 170+ gram range.
