Due to financial/publicity reasons (presumably), MINT can't comment on this.

What I can tell you personally (I have no association with MINT) is that Alphas have the same feel and grip as many MVP discs, they have the same location of molding points on the perimeter, and they use the exact same weight stickers on the bottom of the flight plate.

If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck...

Well, Alphas are one badass duck. I love this disc.

Is the yellow apex still the most overstable? Anything close to it?

The 3rd run Sublimes are pure beef.

I haven't thrown any of the new 3rd run Eternals that just came out, so no comparison with them yet, but the yellow Apex are the most overstable of all the other varieties as far as I know.

Although I haven't thrown any of the new 3rd run Eternal Alphas yet, I have handled some.

The dark blues look really nice. There is some variation in the hue of the blue color from disc to disc.

The greens are stiffer, and have less dome, than the yellow greens.

The candy pinks feel very stiff, and have a bit less dome, than the pinks.

The gummy light blues have a bit less dome than the light blues. Gummy translates to more flexible, not a gummy texture.

Neither the white or orange glow discs can compare with the Kastaplast or Gateway glow discs for brightness. I don't think a person would want to use a orange glow at night, because it is pretty dim.

I tested my third run pearly blue sublime against my luster champ snowflake thunder bird... say that fast two times...
Also threw a candy red PD in the mix. All three are fresh.
Very similar flight for all three. Maybe a bigger arm would see more variation as they pushed them out further.
I found them all super beefy, back hand and forehand. They were nearly as beefy as my star firebird.
One will likely make the bag for forehand flexes.

I am looking for a 2nd run candy pink alpha. I'd be willing to trade a FR pink or a 3rd run candy pink. edit: I have a lot of other trades too.
