Anybody else think it looks like a storm with a faster top?

Looks like a glide meets a storm...kind of. Absolutely zero interest in this one.

Who needs sunglasses anyway? As if people didn't have them already.
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.

"The 2012 Ace Race prototype disc is officially classified as a long range driver, but it could be more accurately described as a hybrid driver and is superb for running aces! Faster than a Buzzz but slower than a Stalker, the disc offers players controlled fairway shots. At medium to fast speeds this disc will hold the line to finish with a slight hyzer. Give it a rip!"(

Ummmm... Faster than a buzzz but slower than a stalker????? I did not think that was possible. I like both the stalker and the buzzz but its already hard for me to carry a stalker when I have buzzzes that fly less than 20ft the distance of my stalker.

I guess buzzz to 325.. this disc to 337.5 and the stalker to 350??

I really wanted a nice fairway driver, but instead we get stalker 2.0

faster then a buzz slower then a stalked sound exactly like a storm. a hornet ss i guess. My 8 year old and i are signed up for a ace race and he is totally stoked about the sunglasses. My wife was like great now you will wear discgolf hat shirt and glass all the time. if it comes in a light weight it could be a great beginer driver.

I picked up a couple of the new Ace Race discs from the factory today. I have not thrown them yet but they look and feel like Mid Range discs to me. The bottom looks like a Buzzz and the top looks like a Squall or a Comet or something (so domier than a Buzzz and bigger in diameter). They were in Z plastic. Some were stiff (like traditional Z) and some were a softer blend.
