The first retailer orders are shipping to the West Coast and Mountain region to arrive at the stores 11/21 so they can get ready for the 11/23 release. Pretty darn exciting!

The Inbounds chart has the Lace being amazingly straight to 458'. But how's the Lace for us noodle arms that can't reach beyond 350'? Should I just stick with the Trak/Ascent or will it help with a little more distance?

If a fast disc is too stable for you, try to give it a little more anhyzer. You should see more distance before it fades. You might need a little more room for the disc to "S' out.

I understand that generally if you don't get a disc up to its' speed it will tend to be more stable than advertised. But I'm not sure how this answers the question?? I didn't ask how to deal with an overstable disc. Just adding anhyzer to an overstable disc has never suddenly added another 100' to the distance I can throw.

At this point in my disc golf evolution, I am approaching (if not actually there) a noodle arm status. I throw the Trak 300' or so. The Lace reaches 360-380 consistently and I've thrown over 400 with it. To really get max D with it, I release it on a slight anny.

I would get the lightest Lace you can find. Looks like that would be 167g for the first run of Laces. This will help somewhat with stability with a lighter weight disc.

I had to ratchet back on the weight of most of my discs to get them to fly "as designed". I throw my Stingrays in the low 160s and most drivers in the mid 160s to be able to hit similar lines. I would think I'd also need to go light on the Lace to get it to fly like that. If that is really the flight path, the name is quite apropos.

I personally putt with a VP, but still carry Sole, Ridge, and Summit for upshots/approaches. All four molds are very useful and I'm sure there is a mold that fits your preference.
I would of typed the exact same thing!!!

Wow - that's an impressive jump. But do you get the same increase with other high speed drivers? I'm occasional getting Trak to 300 but I max out at around 330 even with speed 13s.

Thinking about rocking an all vibram bag for winter. Do you guys think I would be alright with a Ridge, Ibex, and Trak?
