Over the last few years, one category of discs we’ve loved to review is the controllable midrange. You get the mix of a moderate level of speed, often a nice amount of glide, and a slightly understable flight. While you might lack a harder fade, the greater control makes up for it. This type of flight can easily be applied to the Dynamic Discs Warrant. The Warrant has more turn than the Dynamic Discs Evidence which also clocks in on the understable side of things.
Dynamic Discs says this about their latest midrange:
The Warrant is the understable disc that our customers have been requesting. On stronger throws, it will hold the anhyzer angle for the whole flight without flipping over or rolling. When distance isn’t the goal, the Warrant will hold just about any line that it is thrown on. It will be a fantastic disc for carving lines in the woods or getting around obstacles. It feels similar to the Verdict/Truth/Evidence but flies like nothing else we have. The Warrant has been issued for your high scores.
Dynamic Discs sent us a Warrant to check out and we found some time in the winter weather to give it a test. Just like their other midranges like the Truth or Evidence, the feel is very similar. A very comfortable rim that feels smaller than it really is. The bottom wing is quite small and with a somewhat blunt nose, you can tell this can be a disc you can control.
Without a doubt the Warrant has more turn than the Evidence, but don’t assume that means it is flippy. Starting on the teepad and using the Warrant for our drives, the Warrant shined on two specific types of shots. The first was on a little hyzer flip. We could drop the wing just a hair and give it a strong throw to see it flip up from the hyzer angle and glide flat down the fairway. Everyone’s arm strength will determine just how much angle to give it, but play around with it and you’ll dial it in.
This type of shot can really help you on wooded shots or shots with smaller windows that you need to hit. Don’t be afraid to use the Warrant as a driver when you need some added control. It won’t flip too hard on you and the overall angle can be controlled just with the angle you release it at. Plus, if you take a little power off of it, you gain even more control.
The other shot that we saw the Warrant excel at is the intentional anhyzer. These were shots that called for us to release it with a little added anhyzer angle to help it get started. We’d begin our aim slightly left of center and give the Warrant some added height from our release, but we’d release it with anhyzer instead. It didn’t take much, but by helping it get started, we’d create some nearly effortless left to right shots.
On these shots the Warrant would hold the angle you start it on and glide out nicely. We found the height you start it on determines just how quickly it turns. We kept it low at times and the turn was sharper, but we sacrificed some distance. Best results came when we gave it some room to fly.
Regardless of the angle of the flight, twe did notice it start to break out of that turn and return back to flat at the very end. It never really showed a harder fade back to the left, but there were some signs to it. On a hyzer flip it would finish maybe 1-2 feet to the left at the most, but it was typically quite small. On anhyzer shots it would return to flat and dump out at the very end. We couldn’t call the fade rating a 1, but it is just a hair more than a 0 rating.
What about a flat release? The Warrant will show turn when thrown flat, but it almost looked like something was holding it back. It would begin the flight relatively straight before hitting into a decent sized turn, but it would break out of it at the very end. This is why we felt either the hyzer flip or forced anhyzer produced the best results. It felt like it just needed a little help to show that big turn or we could use it to our advantage and produce some very straight shots instead.
The Dynamic Discs Warrant really reminded us of the Opto Fuse from Latitude 64. We’ve thrown both the Opto and Gold Line Fuse for a the last 3-4 years and always found the Opto version to be a little more stable. We still had great control, but it would typically break out of that turn as well. The Gold Line on the other hand usually had a slightly flatter top and would turn a little easier. We’d love to see a Warrant in the Fusion plastic to see if that brings an even more understable flight.
Overall, we’d rate the Dynamic Discs Warrant at 5, 4.5, -2, 0.25. The turn is there and it has a touch of fade to break it away from the 0 rating. With the slightly faster speed rating, it does take a little extra to get it going for a midrange, but that also means it can handle the power as well. That speed rating also translates in our minds to a better option off the tee than an approach shot
The flight chart from inbounds Disc Golf shows a flight close to what we were seeing on a flat release. The turn shown is something close to what we were seeing, but we saw maybe a little more at the end of the flight. Again, it was minimal, but it would bail out just a hair.
While the Evidence also brought and understable flight, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Warrant more in the flavor of what people are looking for. It can easily fit the bill for nearly any bag that calls for an understable midrange. While a slightly beat in Truth or other straight midrange can cover the flight path of the Evidence, the Warrant can out of the box bring a great left to right flier.
From tight wooded shots that call for some hyzer flips or sweeping anhyzers the Dynamic Discs Warrant can execute them out of the box. It brings a lot of control, but they key is learning to handle it. You can’t go too crazy with the Warrant, but a little practice and give you a very useful tool in the bag.
