So in the last week or so I ordered and received

1) 148g Aero
2) 164g Rattler
3) 175g Birdie

While the Aero certainly isn't a Lid, it is somewhat Lid like, being very tall. The Rattler is very reminiscent of a regular catch frisbee , and the Birdie is similar , but much thicker edged.

I bought the Rattler for my bro in law, he doesn't have any Lids yet and struggles putting with his XD . Aero is a learning disc for my daughter, and the Birdie is for me to try in comparison to my Super Puppy.

Unfortunately, it's been 20*F lately, with 6" of snow on the ground, so I'll have to reserve judgement until the weather clears up a bit. :(

I search Google and Epay. You can find deals either way. I'm just so broke currently that it is time sensitive as to when I can bid/buy.

So I played a round with my new to me Birdie. Is a DX 175g used disc that is in great shape. Love it. After one round of playing with it , it has replaced my Super Puppy. Like it much better. A few holes I threw both. Almost every time I threw both I did better with the Birdie . The couple times it didn't do better it was equal to the Super Puppy.

My bro in law played his first round today with a Rattler that I bought him for Christmas. He used to use an XD. He liked the Rattler alot. Was consistently hitting the chains/basket , and hitting more putts than normal.

I bought my nephew a Polecat , but it won't be here for a few more days.
