Default MINT Discs - Longhorn

Just the thing for a rainy, COVID-laden hot August morning. Saw this one yesterday and the hype train is on.

Production
Manufacturer / Distributor: Mint Discs
Approved Date: Aug 12, 2020
Certification Number: 20-68

Specifications
Max Weight: 176.8gr
Diameter: 21.3cm
Height: 1.5cm
Rim Depth: 1.2cm
Rim Thickness: 2.1cm
Inside Rim Diameter: 17.0cm
Rim Depth / Diameter Ratio: 5.6%
Rim Configuration: 31.00
Flexibility: 9.89kg

So based on the specs it looks like it should be a straight to overstable distance driver? But honestly, looks pretty unique. Slightly wider than average diameter for a distance driver intrigues me. There aren't a lot of well known, popular drivers with the same specs. I imagine that is by design, not accident.

Can't wait.

With a name like Longhorn, better be beefy! Nice color selection.

Never thrown anything by Mint discs, but I've heard some good things.

They're worth looking into! I got hooked when the 2nd run Alphas (their first disc) dropped almost three years ago and have been throwing them ever since.

I've liked all four of their current molds enough to bag them, so I might be a little a biased. But, they're quality plastic regardless. If you happen across some or get bored with your lineup sometime, give them a try.

the long horn is not an overly beefy disc, its reminiscent to the pfn star wraiths though. i look at it as a great complimentary disc to the freetail, it has a similar feel but can handle much more power and wind. i use it as a longer alpha and has replaced my wraiths for a while now. we only have our team testers atm and theyve only been made in eternal so im anxious to see how it flies in the other plastics. ill be posting up a full review , hopefully this weekend.

Awesome. That's what I was hoping to hear. The specs didn't look like a meathook but you can never tell.

As you can see from my bagging the Hades, I don't throw overstable distance drivers, just don't have the arm. Before the Hades, it was the Vanish, and before that it was beat in wraiths. Sounds like I can get one of these for my overstable slot and beat it in to straight. Should be sweet!

That really is some beautiful plastic. I bag one of those myself. Don't know if that or the royal blue that flips for me now is my favorite, but it's kind of like kids, if I had a favorite, I probably wouldn't want to say.
