Haven't tossed it yet, but it reminds me of a ninja with how low the wing/nose is.

I'm going to categorize this disc FAF. Flippy as fuck. Even with a 20+ mph tailwind and pretty steep Hyzer, it would turn and burn. No clue on glide because of turn. Seemed decently fast. Its one of the new "fast discs for slow arms" kinda discs. Blah.

Personally i'm disgusted by the trend of the whole industry making rollers out of the box in droves in the last years. Like there weren't those in the older discs already and for more seasoned players they get more reliable rollers out of worn examples of more controllable straighter discs. So my question is WHY? Sure Vibram has pretty hard fading drivers out now but that ain't exactly complimented by a roller. A real addition to the line up would be a straight to slightly understable disc depending on the power. Like Leopard or at most River. Thus a new player without the best form or power but decent in mechanics should be able to throw it without fading out badly and to get it to go right by annying and an average player should be able to hyzer flip it to straight or get anny from a flat release=everyone wins. I'd be happy with a Leo/River or a hybrid of them in rubber for added grip which has been my only complaint with obvious naturally occurring wind issues that hit every understable disc anyway so i'm not expecting anything in that department. Wind beaters are another role.
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.

My white lace throws a lot like a 8/10 star destroyer. I can't rip it really well right now due to a strained groin but it was S-curving and fading out to about 370' for me. It could even handle a little headwind. Anyone else throw a white one?

S-curving. Eagle L type fade and some flippin perhaps not as much as the EL. Not too fast.

yes. it's really nice.

very stable... not OS, or understable, just line holding stable. Like... freakishly true flying for a high speed driver. reminded me of a very long TL.

I usually throw teebirds and TL's about 300-325 and could only get worn pro destroyers out to around 340, 350 max flat ground D. today I got the Lace out to about 375'. some turn, and very forward cutting fade. almost always on center line landing no more than 15 feet from the center. Into a headwind it needed some hyzer release but stayed true. thrown flat and torque-y it would roll into a headwind.

The best part about the disc is the glide. it just keeps going. and, not just glide 'for a Vibram disc' but serious 'when will it drop?' glide.

Both of mine were red, 167g; one had a pop top dome and a TON of flash on the leading edge, one had less flash and less dome. they flew identical which seems like a good sign to me.

only bad thing i can say about it is the flash on the rim, it's enough to cut a man. otherwise the Lace gets a huge thumbs up from me.

I haven't just for the fact that I got a flippy proto that was one of the most useless discs ever and I never got to test a stable one.

The production ones are good, the one I threw is a little less stable than my white proto with a bit more glide. I could get it out to about 360' but then it would kinda dump on me.
