So far, I love mine, both domey, one mid 160g, the other low 170g. I treat it more as a stable-understable fairway driver. Love the skip and glide. I'm hoping they don't change too much for production.

I throw star sidewinders as my primary driver and these feel JUST like them. I got some fairly flexy/gummy ones (most others in the lot were very hard) that feel just like my star sidewinders in hand. During yesterday's Ace Race I didn't get to really try them (short holes + high winds) on normal shots but I did today. They fly EXACTLY like my seasoned star sidewinders. I have a feeling when these season they'll be REALLY flippy and the roadrunner comparisons will be spot on.

The bad news is - even though I like them I have this shot covered. I definitely don't need even more flippy...

The good news is - if I lost both my star SWs today - I could drop these in today and not miss a beat while I beat in a new SW.

Only thing that was strange for me was the mini bead on the rim.

During the Ace Race I figured out that it was a pretty bad slow throwing disc so I did probably 90% power throws and was getting a straight flight MOST of the time.

I'm no sure if it'll make my bag because it's little touchy in the wind I've found. Need to get some more field work with it.

I have 6 Ace Race / Heat disc's. 2 of a light orange, 2 yellowish green, 1 pink and 1 blue.

I bag one of the Orange and the Pink. The pink seems more understable than the orange. Orange flies pretty straight with some fad to the left. Both glide forever. Really like the feel of the plastic.

didn't attend the ace race this year (2 understable drivers 2 years in a row = not rad) but i threw a friend's 175er and it was comparable to a lat 64 river or discmania jackal imho

Both of mine were light. A blue, flat, 167-69, and a domey red 164-66
The flatter one was noticably more hss. Powered down, which most of the shots at the ace race were, they both had a healthy fade. When thrown past 250' they both turned quite a bit and faded some but still finished right.

These are comparable to a roadrunner, the rim shape is almost identical , and the rim felt close to the same size, 8-9ish
