My doubles partner had one last week...He was excited because he aced with it during the ace race. He handed it to me and asked me to try it. I looked over my shoulder and there was a basket 80' away. I turned around without thinking and drained it. It flew a lot like my seasoned proto medium Ions I guess because that's how I threw it...Anyway, I'll bet that 80'ers are the best thing that this disc does.

I only got to throw it once...Though I think it would be decent for putting...The shape really reminded me of a large diameter beadless Ion. It had a really symmetrical convex nose like the Ion/Wizard. Though I don't like large diameter putters...They make the basket seem smaller.

i traded a guy at a tourney for one today. it was great for 150'-60' approaches. it also works well for thumb rollers and playing catch while waiting for the 2 minute warning.

It's a fun disc, can take a full rip with without turning too much when driving as well, thought it'd be much more understable. Both of mine are 180 and over, if this makes into production I'm interested to try out some lighter ones. Fun to put with too.

Threw one yesterday that a guy had at the course. I flew like a slower shorter Mako. Good for me since I throw Makos...

I'm heading to Brys Park on Saturday to play in the Ace race. I will try and give an opinion on it when I get done.

I got a 181 in ESP plastic and a 179 in DX plastic.

Sadly, I didn't get any aces during the ace race, but I did feel that the disc was kind of between a putter and a mid-range in terms of how it flies. I was able to throw it hard and it not turn over, and if I threw it softly for a 60-80' upshot, it had an awesome amount of glide.

My friend and I played catch with one for about 10 minutes while waiting for people to play in front of us, and both of us said it was one of the nicest catch discs out there, because you can work on Anny shots, hyzer shots, drop shots and even thumbers with it.

This is the first putter I actually would consider using as a thumber, I threw one at a 100' upshot during practice and was about 3-4 inches from draining it. All in all, I believe it is a fairly versatile disc that will find its way into my bag if it becomes a disc.

I really like this disc. Its not making the bag, but its fun to have. I was getting them out to 280-300 with not a ton of turn. There were a lot of folks who were throwing it very poorly and the first thing to pop out of their mouths were "its floppy and a piece of shit!"

yeah a lot of people with poor form at the DN ace race were having trouble with the disc. The old timers and smooth throwers all seemed to throw it pretty well. Its a nice disc, probably one of the best discs for playing catch. It would be a lot of fun in some super soft floppy plastic

i am having alot of luck with it on approaches. it really holds the line you give it. smoth is the keywith this disc. it would be a good teaching tool for cleaning up form.

I don't get how you guys say it is stable. It is not. It was very easy to turn and had a lot of glide. To throw 200' straight I had it down on a pretty deep hyzer.
Felt like a less stable Mako in soe ways. I aced twice, chained out once and hit metal 8 other times and won the SF AR!

Your form sucks.

(or you have a less stable version of the disc)

There were some (peach colored gummy D's IIRC) that were indeed noticeably understable. Those definitely had a natural turn when thrown anywhere over 150'. All the others were damn neutral though.
