Go ahead and discuss among yourselves.
Warship? That sounds like an incredible mid for beginners! And I'm hoping so desperately the Air plastic is more consistent than the blizzard, but I doubt this will happen.

Now Westside is getting interesting for me. The Northman and Boatman didn't do it for me, but the Warship is a solid mid in my bag.

I'm probably going to try the VIP Air Warship and the VIP Air Stag (along with a regular VIP Stag).

Latitude has Opto Air Bolt coming next, but that holds little interest for me.

I'm looking forward to those ZeroLine Mercys

That's about the only one that I'm interested in. I use a 170g Giant for big open flex drives, which is where lighter weights would come in handy, maybe.

If they can get the faster drivers around 159/162, I'd give them a try for sure. The Warship in super light weights? The wifey will be all over that.

Now that it's getting darker earlier, I'm thinking it would be awesome to see some Glow plastic out of these companies. I would love a glow Trident, Glow Saint, Glow Warship, etc.

correct me if I am wrong but would not the Air Warship be the first Air/Bliz mid range disc?

and now I'm going to ask a potentially dumb question

why an Air Warship?
how light would you want such a midrange?
would this be something for ladies and children? (what about the Pearl/Ruby...whichever is the light mid)

I think it is the first. For me personally, my 168 GL is more than light enough. I threw it a foot farther than my partner's Nuke last Sat during a dubz mini. (throwing into a huge headwind and we were both out of gas to be fair ) What I want is a sneaky long mid that will be light enough for my wife to handle....a proven one that I can relate so as to help her learn it and adjust her form as or if needed. She can throw my 170's, but IMO, she needs something around 155-165 to get the most out of it. THIS is what I have been wanting to get for her.
