yeah I just ordered plenty of APs and the BBs

I guess the BB are test runs and were some sort of "oops"

If you want them and aren't a wholesale client or team guy, they are only going to be on sale through Disc Unlimited.

No clue if they are Aviar-x JKs or really omega BB(with shorter P&A nose). I'll find out soon when they show up.

super excited. My omega box half case might need to move to into a full case next week

AP big bead sounds great, i wonder why the ap isn't bb anyway, seems like they would have done it from the get-go.
I would like your X-Wasps, please.

I received the SMS and the plastic is nice and soft like the SJLS. It has a huge dome compared to the QMS. I have not been able to throw them yet. Let us know what you think.

Does the new sms have the old stingray bottom or the new super stingray bottom? Does the stamp say 1.2?

So what's the deal with the BB ZJ?? What does it fly like? Overstable, understable?

Steady I think what he wanted to know regarding the bottom was if it had a micro-bead.

The MS uses the stingray bottom/wing. The old stingray/ms bottom did not have a bead and was concave, like what you find on the QMS/SMS. However when they changed the stingray wing they added a micro bead and made the wing flatter. The last run of Aurora MS had this micro bead from the new stingray. So he was curious if the new SMS had the new bottom with the micro bead

And I think I'll get my Omega BB on friday/sat. I'll put them through the gauntlet and let you know what they do. I want to get some good feedback to Ned so that they can decide if they want to run them stock. I suggest contacting them to get some just so that we can give Millennium feedback on what we thought should be in a stable putter for the lineup. Like telling them if we think it is too soft/stable/etc.

Testing of the Zero-G Quasars and Zero-G Scorpius.

Quasars: 2X 133, 2X150
Scorpius: 2X 133, 2X155

Wind: Headwind, lite to moderate

Player: Am, I play every week in a league and compete occasionally. I am not a distance thrower and for me precision comes first. I play only Millennium discs and my bag is: Omega SS, old run AP, CE and gummy QMS, QPolaris and 1.19 Polaris, Orion LS, Astra and QAstra, SOLF and QOLF, CE EXP1.

IMHO.
Quasars. When thrown flat were all over the place, it was a challenge to control them. A slight change in wind and they went wild. But when I added just a slight anhyzer they went surprisingly long and with a great fade. It is a bit uncomfortable to hold them as they are very domey. They were great as thumbers though.

Scorpius. I dig this disc. Very controlled. When thrown flat 3 of the 4 landed withing 1 meter proximity to each other. A very nice predictable fade both on fore- and backhand. Can't wait to see it in S plastic. They were so easy to throw! Definitely added some 10 -15 meters on the average drive. When over driven, it was fun to see that at first they reacted like a LS disc and then straightened up and fade where you wanted. A plastic is somewhat softer the usual Q and feels nice in hand. Might not tolerate a very heavy wind though.

Field tested a new 180 1.2 SMS and a new 180 Gummy QMS. QMS was dead straight. I usually throw them in the 250 - 275' range. The SMS was more overstable. Went roughly the same D but always faded at the end. The SMS was pretty domey compared to the QMS. SMS had a lot more of that sharp flashing.
