I just participated in one. A longer Buzzz or a low-speed, somewhat understable fairway driver seems to be an accurate description.

27 players, five aces, and about ten metal hits at my ace race. Two players tied with 2A, 1M and played off with a CTP. The tournament director ended up winning. :P

In previous years the TD said the holes were too long and resulted in too few aces and some women players couldn't even reach them, so they were short this year. Yet they were perhaps almost too short - it was tough to underpower the 2012 disc enough. It'd shape a clean line but the line had to be the right height from the moment it left your hand AND on the right line because the holes were too short to get the disc to flex back.

Seems like a good disc though, and perhaps fills a hole in DC's lineup. If they promote it as a control driver that'd be the best thing, I think. Stop calling everything a distance driver.
