Can I just send you a Piranha? You can answer all the questions for me based on that. Of course then you have to send the Piranha back, 'cause I ain't givin' then away.

If you are seriously offering then I would love to take you up on that!
I will send it back after getting some measurements.
PM me for an address if you are serious!

PDGA LEGAL: yes

GLIDE: high glide

NEUTRALITY: neutral stable

DIAMETER: 22-23 (GIVE ME A GOPHER - with or without a Thumbtrac)

RIM DEPTH: no preference, but I imagine high glide would require a deeper disc

SHOULDER: squared like a Polecat

THUMTRAC: no preference (would argue this is not what makes discs like Rhynos, Birdies, and Scales so beefy. Well, not nearly as much as the blunt top wing half)

RINGS OF HEDRICK: yay (I don't think the rings are what make Sonics so fragile either. Again, I think it's the design of that area)

RAISED CENTER: no

DOME: no preference

OVERMOLD: no preference

RIM "BEAD" RADIUS: blunt

BEVELED EDGE: NO!!! - this is a lid for golf, not a golf disc that flies like a lid - even asking this question is shameful

INTERNAL RIM TO FLIGHTPLATE TRANSITION RADIUS: small-ish

PLUS RIM: no

WEIGHTS: Are light weights important to you? no preference

PDGA LEGAL: yes

GLIDE: Medium glide

NEUTRALITY: neutral stable

DIAMETER: 22.5

RIM DEPTH: Shallow please!

SHOULDER: Rounded, no preference on sloping

THUMTRAC: Prefer no thumbtrac, but could live with a subtle one (think Serpent)

RINGS OF HEDRICK: No! (Unless it's run in Gumbputt)

RAISED CENTER: No preference

DOME: Slight

OVERMOLD: No. KISS

RIM "BEAD" RADIUS: blunt

BEVELED EDGE: As minimal as possible

INTERNAL RIM TO FLIGHTPLATE TRANSITION RADIUS: No preference

PLUS RIM: Slight if any

WEIGHTS: Are light weights important to you? No. And since I'd prefer a larger diameter disc with a moderately chunky rim, I don't think light weights will really be an option unless there's a material option for Styrofoam.

Surprised it took someone so long to say this.

Although I wouldnt mind a mild bevel

Personally what I really want is something that feels like a mini Ultrastar but has the stability of a Polecat in some nice stiff Gateway plastics. That would be a dream disc for me.

GLIDE: medium to high

NEUTRALITY: neutral… I’m fine with having an upper boundary after which we go understable.

DIAMETER: 22cm is what I originally proposed. This was before I knew about the Beetle @ 21.9cm so now I’m less set on this measurement. Maybe the 22-22.5cm range is my new wish list diameter.

RIM DEPTH: relatively shallow for me. Shallower than a Polecat IMO, Aeros are 1.3cm deep and I like the idea of that. Ringers are 1.2 deep and I think that might be a little too shallow for my tastes.

SHOULDER: I prefer squared but I can make just about anything work. Flight is more important to me than minor changes in grip. Major changes in grip might change my answer.

THUMTRAC: I love Thumtracs but a Rhyno style Thumtrac will kill the glide. I like the idea of a very small indentation like the RDG top but that kills glide as well. I vote for a few Ching-style Juju divots at different distances from the perimeter. You can use them if you want or ignore them and still have a traditional style profile.

RINGS OF HEDRICK: I don’t know if there is any aerodynamic advantage to these but these rings are the common mode of failure on the Sonic. I vote to leave them off.

RAISED CENTER: I vote bad idea.

DOME: flat to mild dome IMO

OVERMOLD: As much as I like the idea of an overmolded lid, I think this needs to be traditional one shot, no overmold. I don’t want to add complexity to the project. Maybe the next DGCR disc will be overmolded 

RIM “BEAD” RADIUS: Polecat feels right to me. Putt’rs feel to roundy IMO.

BEVELED EDGE: I like the idea of a faint bevel but nothing extreme. This should be a slow disc and the lower profile is already adding a tiny bit of speed.

INTERNAL RIM RIM TO FLIGHTPLATE TRANSITION RADIUS: I like the larger radii transitions. They feel better when I flick.

PLUS RIM: Not. A. Fan. On some features I could vote either way. Not this one. I actively vote against plus rims.

WEIGHTS: yeah, I like light lids. I like 150g Polecats. My 150g Zephyr is fantastic, too. I would love for this to be produced in weights ranging from 130-180g if possible.
Basically my vote too. Shallower depth suits me. Higher weights a plus. I could live with less glide. "Rim bead radius"...something to break edge but nothing huge. Marmo has the right ideas in my opinion.

And as much as my heart absolutely aches for an overmolded lid, in this project its not at all feasible for a few reasons.
