Legacy

Postby KVN » Thu Aug 18, 2011 10:34 am

The debut release from the Rico bros new company Legacy is the Rampage. A very fast (14)spd large wing distance driver. I picked up a pair of unmarked prototype's from Parked in MN last wknd. They have a long top wing,sharp leading edge and no visible dome. The plastic has a flexible star like feel with excellent production quality.Very overstable and fast,I was able to stand one up flat with a stiff head wind from a hyzer that finished hyzer. Once this hits something other than grass I can imagine very long flights as it has some good glide already. Overall I like the disc.

Had a chance to play an entire week with this disc. Very nice disc. Rim width/depth resembles that of a Nuke, just a little more sharp than it.

I wouldn't go so far as to say it's crazy faster than anything else out there, but it glides forever. Stiff headwind on slight hyzer: flipped flat, finished with wicked fade.

Stability is similar to a Champion Boss, but overall distance is greater when compared to it. I like this disc because it is a little more wind resistant than my Z Nukes. Where I can throw a line drive forehand with my Nuke, I can flex out a monster drive with the Rampage.

Clutch

Postby SpikeHyzer » Sat Jan 28, 2012 7:03 am

I had a chance to try out the Clutch, a new putter from the Rico brothers.

The first thing I noticed was how it looks like a slimline magnet. I got about 30 putts in with them and about 20 drives as well. As a putter, it is very nice. Very straight within the circle. From outside the circle it was fairly straight too. I got out to around 40 ft. before I started to get any fade on my putts.

As a driver, it flies on whatever line you put it on. Release it with a touch of hyzer, and it flies a nice gentle gliding hyzer. Release it flat and it flies straight and finishes straight(Very little fade on the end). I threw it with anny a few times and it had a nice floaty flight. It never attempted to come out of the anny.

All in all, a pretty nice disc from the Rico brothers.

Stevie LOVES his magnet...so it's not surprising to me that he mimicked it for his first attempt at a putter of his own...

Sounds like an AP Omega.

That's a pretty good comparison flight-wise there Irban...

I have thrown it a couple of times, stupid fast, under stable, and super long with a tale wind. have not thrown it yet with a head wind. it reminded me alot of the fight path of the first esp nukes.....but faster!

Cannons

Postby regularjoe » Sat Apr 07, 2012 5:41 pm

I throw Icon and Pinnacle cannons. It's the first hi-speed disc that i've been able to get to work for me. Goes much further than the Rampage which is merely a turning driver for me.
The disc is a forgiving if you on higher lines and with the right amount of anhyzer on the release can give a long tight helix.
I'd liken it to a slightly faster, slightly more stable bolt.
It is taking me awhile to break my Cannons in, very rewarding disc though.

Go throw a Legacy

Postby regularjoe » Sat Apr 28, 2012 4:37 pm

I haven't dealt with any company that is more responsive or easy to deal with. The Rico brothers are awesome. You owe it yourself to try Legacy out.

Pinnacle Rampage

Postby Cruzer51857 » Sat Apr 13, 2013 6:26 pm

Been ripping a 170g rampage...loving it! Real fast, right amount of stability and great fade. It's going to come in handy at the rumble.
