Manufacturers official product description:

The Westside Sword is one of our high speed drivers that are extremely user friendly. Designed to slice through the air with ease the Sword will hold any line you put it on, a straight line flight with a Hyzer finish. For professional players the Sword will fly straight, long, and predictable. For lower speed arms the sword will give you that extra distance you want without losing any accuracy. The Sword comes in VIP, VIP Air, and Tournament plastics. Westside Sword is a PDGA approved disc.

VIP-plastic

VIP plastic is our most durable plastic. It comes in a nice see through and opaque appearance. It has a tacky grip nice glossy finish. Designed with super resistant polymers to withstand great force, still hold its shape, and maintain original flight characteristics. No matter what you hit VIP will show great resilience and fly the same the next time you throw it.

Tournament-plastic

Our Tournament plastic is just what it sounds like. Designed with the experienced tournament player in mind, TP has a tackier grip, and is faster out if the hand. It has a softer feel, thus breaking in easier than VIP. Not all shots are hyzers and sometimes you will have to shape shots. TP plastic will give you the flights you need in those tournament situations.

VIP AIR-plastic

Our VIP Air line was designed to make throwing discs easier for players of all levels. It will give you more distance in most conditions. VIP air has the same feel in the hand as our VIP line but is just lighter and infused with tiny air bubbles. The bubbles help the disc stay in the air longer. We offer VIP Air in 160 grams and under in most molds. Perfect for the recreational player to enjoy a more exciting game while playing disc golf.

BT-plastics properties

Westside BT plastic has great flight characteristics, exactly as good as VIP and Tournament plastics. A novice player may feel the BT plastic easier to grip than our other plastics. The BT plastic is more economical compared to high-end VIP and Tournament plastics but BT plastics durability is not as good. The BT plastic is available at selected european department stores.
