Funny enough, recently, my two most played throws have been the Chief and the Code 1, and I must say, the Code 1 plays just as well if not better than the Chief.
Compared to the Chief:
Naturally, the Code 1 feels lighter and faster, grinds are a breeze due to the grooves, and the shape… It’s so good! The shape is definitely a change from the Chief, but this shape allows mega amounts of rim weight, which is awesome. Also, the catch zone is giant, so landing tricks is easy.
The Code 1 also feels more floaty with stock SE’s, and you won’t be disappointed if you get one. It also has an IGR, which is lacking in the Chief (I know it’s not a big deal), and, with my limited knowledge of horizontal, the Code 1 seems to handle it better.
The rest of this may seem trivial to most but: I like flow groove pads more than white Snow Tires, but aqua are a lot better. The Code 1 is very quiet with the 10 ball that it comes with. You can’t tell it’s on the string half the time.
For any more info, just ask! You can’t go wrong with the Code 1 or Code 2, but let me say; the Code 1 is a great throw!
