Für mich die Entdeckung auf dem diesjährigen Stubai Cup - einfacher und entspannter kann fliegen nicht sein... -
"...wir haben von Euch einen Discus bekommen und Götz hat ihn in Bassano probegeflogen - er war sehr zufrieden. Außerdem wollten wir Euch mal für die Qualität der Swing Schirme loben :-)"
"…der Discus ist sicherlich einer der „schneidigsten“ A-Schirme und gefällt mir sehr gut, insbesondere im Startverhalten.“

"The Discus is simply super! The wing was flown by a number of people and I only got positive feedback."
Pete Wallenda (WallendAIR, ZA)
"In summary, Swing's general description of the Discus, what level of wing it is and which kind of pilot it best suited to, seems very fair and accurate to me. An excellent first wing which certainly has more than enough performance to take you on your first cross country flights. It's got lots more performance than the wing that took me on my first XCs!"

"It would be hard to imagine a better birthday celebration: paragliding with Swing Discus to the cloud base on my first proper thermalling day! Discus was very easy to launch, fun to fly with and showed great performance overall! The Discus fulfilled exactly what the company promises: For Future Experts!"
