Speed 10 with a touch of dome. Maybe competitor to thunderbird/PD/the like? But I feel like the Explorer is already like that so... no idea

Makes sense, they need a "DD" in that class and speed10 is really the limit in speed for a beginner to really be throwing... if that

I agree with the Jewel name being indicative of the easy to use line. Strange that we already have the Jade with a rim of 1.9 and this has rim of 2.0 which is pretty close. We shall see...

If only the manufacturers would send a blurb about the new discs and the PDGA could post it when they are announced...



...Oh Wait.

From what I've read, its supposed to be just as shallow as the diamond, with a little less HST and a bit more dome to it....similar rim size, maybe a hair wider
