Yeah, it's not a plus rim. It's the mold line being moved away from the under side of the rim so your fingers don't drag across the mold line on release. It also feels like the mold line is angled somehow. I can't really feel it if I run my finger across the mold line AWAY from the center. But I can feel it if I run my finger across it TOWARDS the center.

Now I am curious whether it really does affect release or just creates a placebo affect. In general I have given up on wide-rimmed drivers but I will still throw the Canon for wide-open drives.

I threw the Canon back to back against the D1. Again, I already do not have the greatest of responses with wide rimmed drivers, but I had cleaner level drives with the Canon versus the D1 (Side note, I understand they have different stabilities and thus different end results, but I was just comparing how they came out of the hand and what they do compared to what I expected they should do). When I took out the D4 the next day, I found that I was able to throw it a little better flat than the D1, but the Canon still came out better. However, release is slightly different than results because when I did get ahold of the Prodigy discs, they did perform a little better.

I followed that link. I wonder how Sarah Hokom likes being billed as a "National Tour Champion" while Paige Pierce is called "Women’s World Champion."

+ rim I dont think so. Where you would normally find a 90 degree angle where you grip the rim, its rounded. Thatts all. Not slanted. Rounded for easy release.

No. The riot is a plus rim. The rim is normal besides the corner on the outside. It has a bit of roundness to it.
