To the contrary, I think getting people all hyped, only to find this was an XL in new plastic would be counter productive.

Looks like a domey leopard with a bit larger profile.

Agreed, but my point really was, how many new molds or slots in my bag does Discraft have left to fill. It is a domey, slow speed, somewhat undertable driver, by all accounts. Sounds like an XL or pretty close. I am excited either way.
Do the TD's take into account the disc when setting an Ace Race course? I certainly cannot hit metal on a 350-600 ft hole, so I assume they shorten some holes for play?

Yea! And I am excited for the pint glasses

This package looks to be pretty great so I don't know why so many people are crying about it. If you don't like the discs then just give them to a friend or something. Disc golfing is supposed to be about having a good time with your friends. I guess there are a lot of Discraft haters out there but if you don't like them then don't participate!

My understanding is that they wil shorten the holes. Most will be 150-200 ft (i think). Look at the other thread about the Ace Race.

I'm pumped for the pints too for sure.

I don't know if it's so much Discraft haters as it is self-entitled brats. It's like they expect the moon in order to grace the event with their presence.

Same here! I was at a Vibram Birdie bash this past spring and I was on a card with a guy who couldn't stop "Bashing" Vibram AND the T.D.! WTH?!? You're getting more than your money's worth, just from the new plastic! Quit your whining people and apreciate what you've got or GO HOME!
