Those are my three favorite Discraft molds. I'd love to have more of them.

Loved how those things beat in to a trusty turn over disc.

Hmm. The disc most seem to want out of the three,but the least suitable for the format ?

Only two weeks!
There's a different disc each month?

Where is this information posted?

Perhaps the thought is that newbies might need a driver to reach some of the Ace Race holes and more advanced players will have a trickier time controlling a driver as well as a putter or mid? Or it may just simply be a disc they decided to bring back for this format.

Thanks. I clearly missed that. And when I looked at the official ace race website this morning the info has not been updated.

I suppose that there will be people traveling to multiple events to partake in all three versions.

My first thought is "meh". None of those molds have been gone for a significant amount of time. And time and time again the question of "why isn't this disc available in *insert_plastic_type_here*, the answer is often because they are glideless turds and don't fly as well as the production versions. Perhaps Discraft will prove me wrong this time around.

Z Hawks were a thing. Glideless turd was a good description. I doubt the plastic on these will be Z, though. Probably ESP. ESP has much less of a glideless turd factor than Z.

They do most of their announcements on Facebook. Discraft doesn't seem to update the Ace Race website until after events have started.
