This disc seemed to be a winner at the Ace Race we just had in Lake Stevens, WA. Easily more than half the people playing said that they were going to bag it for a while. I thought the feel was comfortable, the plastic felt great, and honestly I'm considering it as a putter. Felt really good messing around at about 30 feet! Would like to get some of these in the urban plastic blend for putting!

Is it the diameter of a putter or a mid range?

Putter... I bag mine as a US version of the zone. It's definitely smaller radius than my buzzz which sits next to it

I have been wanting a flat top under stable shallow putter Zone SS for a while but Im concerned this would overlap with the Meteor which is a go to disc for me. Can anyone with experience with both comment/compare?

Compared the Ace Race disc tonight to some old Discraft models and it's profile is almost exactly like a Breeze, the shoulder angle on the Breeze is maybe a degree higher and the profile a bit thinner on the Ace Race disc, diameter is bit smaller on the Ace Race also.

So it's pretty much a Breeze Jr.

Too slow IMO to overlap, similar flights, different duties.

powers down better then a meteor as well. More of a fast putter then a true mid IMO. I have been thinking of it as a beadless ringer.

IDK, a true mid is a speed 4-5 in my mind. I can hyzerflip this thing 280' feet. I would personally call it a true mid, it does power down very well though and can be thrown with a modified fan grip for more magical things.
