Yup, that's basically how I use the Rat.

Would be good for Discraft to get something like that in their lineup. Sure Ringer has that flight, but for any putter/approach disc/mid it's REALLY nice to have a beaded option and a beadles option.

It's true that they have been going neutral to flippy in recent years, which makes sense because they're trying to make the discs accessible for beginners. Last 2 have certainly been very accommodating to lower arm speeds. Have to go all the way back to the Heat for an AR mold that's not super approachable for beginners, and even that is super mild for its speed class.

But the heck of it is, all of my aces have been with stable/OS discs, and in several cases MEGA OS. I just find it easier to place hyzer lines; so predictable and rangable. So if they did something like a Banshee clone, it would honestly help my odds in the Ace Race.

Isn't that a Ringer?

If they don't want to release a new disc, what about a Buzzz Ace Race Challenge where you get to pick an OS Regular Buzzz or an SS?

Seems to me the understable side of slower discs is pretty empty for Discraft. Hoping a nice understable midrange now.

For midrange Yes, fairway drivers and has enough with putters. Distance drivers are the only other slot lacking more understable midrange.

If Discraft is not going to be having a new disc then what about a new plastic for a disc? Like make the X plastic Wasp full production or a Pro D Putt'r. The glide is not good on the soft X Putt'r once it breaks in just a tad and has the top go slight puddle top. They had for a very slight moment the Putt'r in Pro D but that was before Soft X was a plastic, so maybe 6 months at most.

I used a first run soft X Putt'r not the Pro D version and I wish they had kept making the Putt'r in Pro D. The Putt'r then would not go Puddle top after it breaks in just that slight bit, and have all the glide I liked form the disc when new.

I'm not trying to be unkind, but could you rephrase this? I'm not sure what you're trying to say (and I really do want to know). Thanks.

OFFICIAL: 4/4/-2/1 - I assume a slower Meteor type disc. Which is pretty sweet for all players and for an ACE RACE - 2 ESP discs, towel, and stuff.... AR18 should be fun times
