This bag is quite unique. The fast side is similar to the fast side of the Vapor bag but it is a slightly different knit to minimize snags. The slow side is similar to the fast side of the Cobra bag but it has the patent pending Speed Control technology pressed into them. Speed Control is an array of dots that are arranged in a specific pattern to slow the speed down to a level near that of the X but still quicker than the X. Great for indoor medium to slow speed conditions. Both the fast and slow side of the Viper-C have Speed Control technology. For fast boards, consider the Widow. For very fast conditions but retaining looseness, consider Vapor-X or Vapor. The primary difference Viper-C and Vapor-X is the flex of the fabric is better and the friction around the edges are minimal. What this means is the bag is more capable of slipping into the hole. It is better at working around bags and going in the back door. It is more forgiving when the bag lands slightly on edge. This bag has been designed to be loose and forgiving but also controllable in the hand. Give this bag about 10 games to break in.
Fast Side Speed Rating (Cold/Damp): 6 Cuts through heavy moisture like the Vapor bag.
Fast Side Speed Rating (Hot/Dry): 8 Very quick. Too quick for most. But a great hole magnet if you get it close.
Slow Side Speed Rating (Cold/Damp): 4 It will slow down but still move.
Slow Side Speed Rating (Hot/Dry): 6 Quick, but a great hole magnet if you get it close.
Looseness Rating: 8.5 Great forgiveness and a hole magnet. Still has a good feel in the hand.
Durability Rating: 8.5 Probably the most durable bag we’ve ever produced. However, the fast side is prone to snagging. The fibers of the fabric are super strong and when they catch onto a splinter they pull out of the fabric instead of breaking. This will not cause the bag to fall apart but it will look like a line in the bag. We do not warranty fiber pull outs so be sure the boards you play on are smooth on all edges.
