I'm just curious, how many of you guys regularly throw Aeros?

Not too much I'm assuming. I think this disc wasn't really revolutionary at all.

I know a LOT of discraft guys who are going to love this though! (johansen johansen johansen)

I do, they are great approach discs. They fly sooooo slow, and flat. Even at 180g they just glide along and settle to the ground and stop. I almost always have one on me when I play. They do kind of suck in the wind though:(

Aeros are like the smaller leach conjoined twin of the Mako they had to cut off so the Mako could survive.

almost all the dudes that I know that threw aeros have moved to the dart. Maybe they are tapping that sweet dart market.

I'm severely underwhelmed. If DC was going to copy an Innova mold, at least copy a popular one. Not one that went OOP in their best plastic (champ). I'd much rather throw a lid than an Aero clone. Plus, I hated the Breeze, DC's last slow, understable disc. Good for the ace race though.
Some discs of various sizes, weight, plastic and mold.

So, as an Ace Race TD, what would be the best hole length for these lids? About the same for the Focus 2 years ago?

This is DC catering to the new player right? A more lid-like disc that may have a familiar feel for folks, and a bag that would be great for beginners to use while starting out? If so, good on DC.

I don't think they are catering to the new players with this disc.

Everyone knows beginners start out with Innova Bosses, Destroyers, Katanas and anything else that is at the top of the speed chart.

Sadly this is very true. But I do agree that it is a good move by discraft, i'd rather see 10 putter molds than 50 driver molds by one company. Putters I can deal with since each has a different feel.

Yeah, I could care less if my putters were in premium plastic. I can't say I'm really stoked about their choice on the disc but either way, it will be fun to throw. I kind of hope it's like a shorter comet, that would make it interesting.
