I just got a bard in a trade and after two rounds I'm pretty sure it's exactly what I'm looking for. Great stability, sweeping fade not a dump. I was looking for an easy to throw overstable mid and this is it.

Well I snagged a compass and I think you may be right. I need a little longer but this may be a better compliment to the bard than the warship. I prefer to manipulate release angles for flight and sometimes the warship is too responsive, the added stability of the compass may be what I need.

Man bards why didn't I find you sooner. My 167 opto is plenty stable and is lengthening a bit now that the flashing is wearing off. Perfect for the slot I need it for. Flex lines are too fun with this disc and is such a useful shot for me lately.

traded for a tp bard yesterday. 172 and the slightest bit concave. whoa i already liked this mold but in tp holy smokes. may be the best mid i have ever thrown for what I'm looking for in a mid. sneaky long no turn but a little drift and a nice but not beefy fade. this disc is so underrated!

My 172 TP Bards are my money discs... if I smack a tree halfway down my drive, and it's too long for a safe Harp upshot, the Bard does the same thing but 20-30' longer.

Money. Every time.

Man, the bt bard is sounding more and more like 'the midrange' I've been looking for since switching to trilogy. Compass/Truth, unreliable in wind, Mace is close but not enough glide and to slow. The Verdict has been the closest so far, but even that disc can get unpredictable sometimes, and is very inconsistent from disc to disc.

i threw the verdict before the bard. the verdict was squirrley in the wind for me. the bard laughs at the wind. time will tell how it holds up but the tp bard is everything i was looking for. my tp bard may just end up as my only mid as i beat the tp in and use a vip as well. nice ass disc if you like verdicts you'll love the bard!

I love my tournament bard, works great as a compliment to my VIP Warship. I prefer the bard/warship combo for midrange duties over most other discs I've tried including ROC3, BUZZ, WASP, HORNET, TRUTH, EVIDENCE, Zombie.

I guess I wrote this disc off way too early
The DD van is rolling through pur town on Friday and hosting another 2 disc challenge...Im thinking either Judge or Gauntlet for the putter, but Im really torn between an EMac Truth (if they bring any) or a Bard.

I tried the Bard as soon as it was released and wrote it off because Westside hyped it up as being really overstable...which it isnt. So what do you Bard throwers perfer?TP or VIP? Why do you prefer said blend?
