Rattler?
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.

+1, i think it will be a lot better than people think.


If vibram, Discmania, MVP etc made this disc you guys would be dick-punching each other to line up and throw it first. :lol:


LOL, I was sitting here drinking OJ at breakfast when I read this on my Blackberry and snarfed it out my nose. I just had visions of all you die hards literally doing that to each other.
It's all about discipline and focused practice!

I've been thinking about this comment all day. Only reason I can find that name does not fit is the cosmic names are all used for mids. Comet, meteor, nebula, eclipse(driverish).

Usually the convex bevel gives a disc more glide compared to a flat or "L" bevel. Think Roadrunner vs. Sidewinder, or Mako vs. MD2/MS. Maybe float is a bad adjective because that bevel usually makes a disc a bit faster as well, and float is usually thought of as a slow thing.

Played in the Ace Race this weekend. The two discs that I got were both 180g. Did all kinds of things with it. Forehand, doesnt work to well and just wants to flip. Backhand friendly. Its rollerable. Even threw a thumber with it, and it worked surprising well. I felt like it was very close to a mako. I dont throw aeros, but lots of people compared it to them. I thought they were very wind sensitive. Has tons of glide though!! Overall, very fun though!

Eh, some say that about the Comet too and that's just about my favorite FH disc out there.

Yea, Im sure other people will have different opinions on what it did well for them. Im mainly a forehand thrower and it didnt work well for me in that aspect. Didnt seem to handle a big snap, but other people might have better form or a different technique. Just wanted to get the discussion going about the experience people had with the new disc, instead of hoping and wishing what it might or should be. From what I heard from the TD, it was the first ace race in the country, so Im just curious about what other people think.
