I saw that some people are selling them already in europe and we haven't maded a topic about them yet.

Does anybody tried them before? What is you opinion about them?

I heard they are a lower, more stable cross between the Parodis and the Hasbro solids. So I am anticipating their arrival intently! I'll report on here when I have had a flick with them.

I quite like them. Bought some from Mike Peacock last weekend and they're fine for a mess about. Glide nicely and curl well too. Haven't got the chip sussed yet, but only had 5 mins with them, so I'm sure that will come. Better than any subbuteo bases, possibly as good as lunulas but no threat to astrobase or stefan corda imho.

Flickmaster are very good to play with. They glide well and are excellent for blocking. Like Trev, I have struggled to get a consistent shot with them. They are quite light and I've found that 'long-shots' seldom work. Close up to the ball, they're fine, but anything more than 2/3 inches away I can't seem to lift the ball. With SureShots I can chip a ball from any distance, but with these, I can't.

I'll agree with these guys that it is nigh impossible to get a long shot chip out of them. However that is their only flaw IMO. A nice medium weight base with a low strike edge and slick flat. And you can curl 'em! For the money, worth every penny. Great VFM compared to Stefan Cordas and other similarly priced equipment.

I think the burberry pitch is a bit over the top.
