Anybody throw this disc yet? Is it another teebird replacement for all those people that want to replace their teebirds?

Yeah I was a little curious too... when you look in the Amazon description it lists the manufacturer as MVP.

It appears to be the exact same mold as the Mint Alpha. They are very similar in flight; although my Ronin has a lower PLH and a higher dome so it is more workable.

Alpha is yellow and Ronin is Blue...

Default Remix Ronin

I decided to buy and try the Remix Ronin from Amazon as a couple of friends had done the same. I LOVE it! I throw about 450ft. The Ronin tends to be an effortless straight driver flying somewhat between a Teebird and Leopard in Champ plastic. It will glide straight forever or you can shape it on both Hyzer and Anhyzer. My only concern is that it is not on the PDGA list of approved discs. Does anyone know why that would be and how I might be able to change that? I would love to make this my choice of Fairway driver but as someone who plans to move up to MPO next season, I don't want to rely on a disc that I won't be able to use.

Buy two more and send them to the PDGA with a check for $50.

$59.95

This bag is now $26 shipped! I was hoping someone had bought it so I could get a decent review but I assume it is cheap because it is terrible. But knowing this it almost still seems worth it for $26.

The Amazon reviews are telling. Sounds like the straps and seems fall apart almost immediately. $26 sounds like a reasonable price given the poor quality.

So just like the first run of Heropack. This makes me wonder if Remix had kept making the original type Heropack but just made a cheaper version. My cousin had a first run Heropack he got barely used from a friend who used only Innova and I think the cousin now uses a type 2 style Heropack as his old Heropack started falling apart and the other guy got the Superhero when it first came out.

I know this is likely a joke, but is that possible? Do you actually have to own the IP to get the thing approved?

You have to fill out a form (linked below) with company information. It looks like they bumped the fee to $300 and now require 3 discs.
