Yeah. I have 1 Lion, and the first thing I thought when I held it for the first time was VRoc. The Lion is a decent mid, but there are already several other molds that are super similar.

I definitely am not crazy about that VRoc rim though. I much prefer a Roc3 type rim.

Is Sexton throwing the Lion? I know GG throws the Wombat3. I'm just trying to think what Honda discs pro's are throwing.

As far as molds we got?

Manta, Lion, Wombat/3, VRoc. Did I miss any?

I have a couple DX Lion's, really love the feel of them but even brand new I don't think their flight numbers are accurate. If I put a decent amount of power on these they're very straight with minimal fade, but I can get some great distance from them. Throwing these into a 10+ mph headwind and they flatten quickly and start turning. I was hoping they would be a little less glidey MD2 based on the numbers but not the case in DX plastic, I would assume in star plastic these are a bit more overstable.

Last in the bag, it was like a Lion, a Rancho Roc, and like a Mako3 or something. It's actually hilarious the extent to which most pros don't seem to sweat their setup too much, and just roll with what feels right moment to moment. Also kind of droll to me is that GG, with possibly the most raw power on tour (I suspect that his throwing style may be putting extra RPMs on the disc as opposed to the lanky guys), is bagging Sonics and Wombats. Wombat(3) by the way takes the cake for me as maybe the worst hand feel I've ever encountered. Sharp convex rim with a big bead? puke
