I just want to see the existing lids in premium plastic! I'd love a cryztal flx Rattler something fierce!

I voted MVP because they have the best chance of putting out some special, not just a lid with different plastic. Also, I would like it to be big enough for superclass, heck make it conform to the specs. for Ultimate.

Are they not considered lids?

I was thinking lids were only things like birdies that are just flat rims with no slant (no beveled rims? i dunno what that word means but I've seen it thrown around).

Any lid throwers want to weigh in?

A lid is basically a miniature frisbee. They fly slow and glidey like a frisbee. One of the most popular molds would be a Discraft Rattler.

Yes, a "lid" is a disc with no bevel. A Condor is a beveled disc (looks like a huge Gator more or less) so it is not a lid. It's a very common mistake to include them. Zephyr=lid; Condor=not a lid.
