I really hope it's something kind of radical design-wise. The fact that it's been kind of hush hush this year so far keeps my hopes up.

I agree. With how quiet its been I'd have to imagine it has to be something DC is really excited about.

Lamp have you beaten in a D Zone? That may work as the Zone SS.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Other than the midrange slot of of +1, what else is missing from DCs lineup that you'd like to see?

I hit submit before I was done, I'd like to see a fairway driver that'd compete with all the other major ones out now. I like the Cyclone, but I'd like to see a smaller diameter one myself.

Now that I've thrown the S-EX more, it has a good chance of being my fairway driver at some point.

Only thrown ESP Zones so far, but I should look into picking a D Zone now that you mentioned that. Sounds like something I should try.

I think stalkers are pretty average if not below. No glide, inconsistent, can throw a mid just as far. They are like a mid in driver form that don't have the form needed to throw a mid.

Back on topic though, discraft could really use a good fairway driver. Having to use an avenger or predator doesn't really cut it.

XL.

Although I do agree that is a large problem in their line up.

ESP Cyclones are soooo $$$.

I haven't tried the XL yet but I have 1 i've been meaning to put in the bag. I still use my green 1st run ESP Cyclone that I got when they released them in that plastic a few years ago, though. Super versatile disc.

I find none of these points to be true...

I say an understable, low profile putt/approach disc. Which I want credit for being the first to say, as I started this same thread on DGCR a month ago. :lol:

Thats what I think it will be, however I would love to see a new GT disc.
