It sounds like I need to practice for the Race with my TL, and QJLS. Maybe a fresh champ Leo would be similar too.

I was having a hard time with the glide as well when trying to hit from 100-150'. Most of my close shots were a foot too high right over the basket. I loved how it held a anny, strait or hyzer line under my normal tee offs after the ace race from 225-275' which is exactly what my TL does for me except this is not as long, has more glide and a lot more fade. I could throw it pretty far, but around the 250ish range I feel it's pretty solid. I recently lost my Leopard and this is easier to get and hold a shorter anhyzer line than my TL so it's in my bag until I can get my Leopard replaced.
I was at the Oshkosh one. It doesn't sound to me like our experiences were that different, it sounds like the disc flew the same for us... our differences are more around our history with TLs not the 2012 AR disc.

Just got the chance to throw the ace race disc today -- seems to fly a LOT like my QJLS. Heard a lot of people comparing it to their Teebirds too, but I don't know how accurate that is.

I got a 165-167 and a 177+ -- the heavier disc was a lot flatter, and seemed significantly more overstable (at least to me). I had thoughts of selling the heavier one, but I may just have to keep it.

Unless someone has a new Evo or Glo Wizard they want to trade ...

I just won my local ace race...2 aces and three metal hits took it.
Leopard is what came to mind although it is wider ...lots of fun was had.
A guy who barely throws 250 finished right behind me with 1 ace and three metals.
And he is 53 years old and been playing for 2 years...
Good job Discraft! Most bang for the buck at any tourney period.

I got a chance to throw the disc today. It was 175g. My thoughts are that it flies like a Buzzz, but I had to throw it like a Comet. I actually parked two holes with it. Very workable disc. So... Buzzz with more glide? More stable Comet? Comet OS?

Could someone compare the rim of this disc to some others?

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

Maybe a profile pic?

The rim is a lot like a Stalker without the mico bead. It does fly like a longer Buzzz. Its different. Kind of Stalker, Leopard, Jackal like. I see it making its way into some peoples bags. I'll try and get a pic for you. (Matt, you did throw that thing VERY well!)
