Review: I recently dropped a Spitfire (now sold as the # 3 Flyer) from my disc collection and put a big gouge in the rim. I decided to just put it in the bag and throw it. I have been very surprised with the consistency I'm getting from it. It is a very accurate and predictable disc. I had some trouble overpowering it at first, but once I backed down and concentrated on using a smooth motion it has been a very dependable mid-range. I put a bit more hyzer on it into the wind and it performed very nicely. I've been able to get a nice controlled turnover flight from it as well. I was expecting to get better glide from the disc because of its large diameter, but it seems to resist lift a bit and never really hooks up for that nice long glide. As a result it does come up a bit short in the distance category for me. I'm not sure if I'll stick with it after I beat this one silly. I'll loose my "old-school cool" effect without the old airplane stamp. However, for a new player the # 3 Flyer would be an excellent choice for a mid-range disc.

Review: The #3 flyer is an odd duck. Functions well as both stable midrange and stable distance driver. It "feels" a bit different from many other discs. It was one of the first discs that I purchased, but it ended up staying in my trunk, as I favored more understable midranges for a while. I took it out to a soccer field while I was throwing sets of drives, and I was getting as much distance with the #3 flyer as with my DX valkyries; but with a difference. The #3 flyer was a lot more forgiving. Throw the #3 flyer wrong, and it still seems to magically find a line to where you want it. It flies straight, without a great deal of fade, yet still manages to flex out of any unintentional turnovers. Not a good disc for turnover shots, but for everything else, the #3 flyer is magic.

Review: I love this disc. Wish they made it in a pro style material. Get yourself a heavy one of these and it thows like a brick. But a VERY forgiving brick. Beginners, find a super heavy one of these and heave! throws too high fall out the sky with minimal float.

In my opinion, the Lightning Number 3 Flyer is the best disc on the market. It's flight is predictable and it's good for short drives and all medium range shots. I have 22 aces lifetime and 20 of them have been with Number 3 Flyers.
