This disc is looking more and more like MONEY all the time.

Can't wait for my Ace Race.

Good thing I got the orange one from you so you could tell the difference between the two in the picture. I don't know what they'll classify this disc as. Very long range mid range? Right now I like all of Discraft's mids (including the Zone). All very predictable, all easy to get distance with little power. Nice round today!

Also has anyone been throwing it FH? I'm primarily a RHFH thrower.

Maybe a profile pic?
I don't have a really good forehand, but I was able to forehand the heavier disc (177+) pretty well. One of my ALMOSTs was a forehand shot that went dead straight at the basket before fading JUST enough to miss the basket completely at the very end. The lighter one was OK when I threw it forehand, but for some reason I just felt better about the heavier one.

I'm curious for those of you that have bagged this year's Ace Race disc, what disc did it replace or push out of the bag? While I enjoyed it and thought it was a very good disc, I just couldn't justify adding a new mold that wouldn't get a ton of use or removing one of the molds I know very well from the bag. Also, what role has everyone that has bagged it relegated it to?

I thought I'd be able to use it but it's just too much of a tweener disc. There's always something else that would perform better for me. On the other hand, I took my sister disc golfing for her second time and it worked well as a driver for her. My impression is that it's a great beginner disc for those who are taking the path of starting with putters and mids and want to move up to something in between.

To me it's a great short fairway disc. Not much faster than a mid if any at all. Dead straight 250-275. When powered down has a small fade on the end. Kinda fills the void of throwing a mid hard vs. powering down a fairway driver. I can't power down a teebird well and stalkers fade when I take too much off of them. It may not get a lot of use but for midrange low ceiling shots and dead straight it may find a special spot.

That is pretty much my experience with it as well. Every time I thought about throwing it, I would just prefer to throw my buzzz. I also found that I could consistently throw my buzzz further. I did really like the amount of glide it had, though.

6.5 - did it push any discs out of a role or from your bag?

YES. So much this.

It basically fits in the slot I tried to fill with the Stalker.

for me it filled a gap in the bag. i throw scouts as mids and xs for fairways. the ar12 fit the role In between not a big gap but the disc is so easy to throw that even when i don't use it for a while I just pull it out and it does its thing almost every time. It is nice for lower ceiling mid shots that take advante of its glide.
