Default Paul McBeth Malta

So the Malta is like a Zone/Wasp baby. Feels like a Wasp with the Zone's small diameter and OS. I seem to get more distance out of my Malta than I do my Wasp, but that could be just me. The Malta is 1.9 stability whereas the Wasp is 1.5 and the Zone is 2. The Malta definitely seems to have some positive HST, but not a whole +1.

Max Weight: 176.8gr
Diameter: 21.3cm
Height: 1.7cm
Rim Depth: 1.3cm
Rim Thickness: 1.3cm
Inside Rim Diameter: 18.6cm
Rim Depth / Diameter Ratio: 6.1%
Rim Configuration: 45.00
Flexibility: 10.34kg

I'll post a profile pic comparing the Wasp/Malta later.

From what I saw of McBeth throwing it last weekend, it doesn't look like it has the fade to be a drone replacement. Probably somewhere between a wasp and drone

Kinda sounds like a Rat replacement for McBeast.

McBeth never threw a rat?? And I think a zone would be a better disc for that slot...

Just watched Rec Robs and others reviews and the Malta does not look to be that much faster/longer than the Zone

I think he did, towards the end of his time with Innova. The Rat was apparently meant to be a longer AviarX3. They (Innova) never got their overstable mid and approach discs right for him.

And yes, he seems to have found a huge comfort level with the Zone.

In case anyone cares, this disc has a 5 letter name and Paul now has 5 worlds titles. All his previous disc names have been 4 letters.

Seems to be correlated.
