2012 Discraft Ace Race Disc
 
Any guesses on what this year's Ace Race disc is going to be? I would like to see Discraft show off their new Ti plastic and include one or two of those in the players pack this year.

This year is the 10th anniversary of the Discraft Ace Race. Below is a list of the previous nine discs.

2003: Breeze
2004: Glide
2005: Slipstream
2006: Meteor
2007: Impact
2008: Nebula (not in production)
2009: Focus
2010: Hornet
2011: Zeppelin (not in production)

1) Since they've done a couple of mids and putters the last four years, I'm hoping for a somewhat overstable fairway driver.

2) Doubt they'll use Ti for Ace Race discs, and least not until they release them as production runs.

I heard that the reason they didn't produce the Nebula was some sort of glitch on the mold. I have a feeling they planned to release the Nebula. Why else would you bother naming it? Other than the Neb, they've released all the Ace Race discs as production discs.

I would like to see a fairway driver as well. Since a putter was used in 2 of the last 3 years, I do not think it will be a putter again.

While I think the players package has been very good in previous years, I am expecting it to be even better this year in celebration of the 10th year.

I would like to see Ti used, but not sure about how likely that would be.

Won't be Ti, that's only being used for the world champ discs.

Overstable fairway driver would be awesome.

Don't they set the ace race holes at 150-200',why would you want to throw a fairway driver at these distances?

They give different suggested distances based on the type of disc.

Discraft will recommend hole lengths based on the disc being used. For putters it's 150-200, but for a fairway driver, they'll be longer. Ultimately, the TD can use whatever course he wants.

Generally, they suggest 180 - 250 ft. TD's can change it based on the disc, players, etc...

For our 2010 Ace Race we had, the holes were to short for a good run with the Hornet.

A fairway driver may not be the best for the acutal Ace Race runs, but it is a disc I would like to see and potentially make the bag.

I want a Discraft verson of the XD but I bet it will be a fairwaydriver of some sort. I hope it is understable whatever it is.
