Good work Stevo. I've been trying to get around to this thread but hadn't had time to do the comparison spreadsheet I usually do for new Mint discs.

I'm looking forward to seeing what else Mint has in store. It's always a good time. Love the name for sure. I saw on the book of faces that someone said the specs were close to an explorer, don't know how true that is. Maybe a straight fairway? Leopard-Patriot? Most Alphas are noticeably more stable than that, so they could definitely coexist.

Nice, that's interesting. A lot of good molds up there.

The last 4 discs remaining on a sheet I just narrowed were the Viking, Thunderbird, Spark, and Spear. Based on data, it could be anything from slightly understable to fairly overstable. Guess we'll have to wait for the scoop from Booter.

I was hoping Draco/Titan/CE Firebird type... I like the Dracos I'm throwing now, but would switch it out for a similar mold in Sublime (without the dome of the 3rd run Sublime Alphas)

well hello

im waiting on my stock samples to put together my usual review. its just to ensure that i release accurate information to the public rather than do it early and have the stock run be different.for now i will give an idea of what to expect.

its a speed 8? fairway driver to compliment the alpha, its less stable and more neutral/understable like a leopard/fd . i know many are expecting overstable fairway but that will probably be a while. for anyone who didnt like the stability of the alpha, this will be your new found love. it has ridiculous glide for a speed 8 and has been a great addition to my bag, im sure it will be well received amongst the MINT fans.

that is all for now thank yall for throwing MINT and giving us a chance while we take the time to produce molds worth throwing.

So then I can stop worrying about losing my 2nd run purple Apex and clear blue Spinos? This is going to be great. I look forward to some profile pics next to an FD

IMO i feel the jackalope would help alleviate some of that stress of losing the seasoned/straighter alphas we work in or pay handsomely for lol ive lost a few flippy alphas and it takes some time to get them to that spot, this is a great replacement out of the box if you can deal with a tiny bit less LSS.

id estimate the numbers to be around 8speed/5glide/-1 or -2ish turn/1 or 2ish fade. ive only tested mine but all of them seem to be fairly neutral unless thrown with some good pop but even then its a gradual drift, not roller flippy.
