It was too flippy for me...I ended up bundling it for some new gel straps. I could cover all the shots the Glide could do with a Comet.

Un apologolegitcally understable. Very useful as a utility. Thrown with an extreme hyzer it will flip up fast and turn right and keep goin right. I can't stress right enough that is all it wants to do(rhbh).

A great mid if you're looking for something understable.

I ditched mine for a meteor.... it kind of has a tweener rim size like the zombee. Not quite a true driver but a faster mid. Real flippy, even more so than the meteor i thought, even though the stability rating reads the same.

that was one of the first discs i bought
later to find out that discraft is only one to think its a driver
the rest of the world knows its a mid range
it is still in my bag today, as an understable mid
however i casually look for a replacement
just got a tester/loaner tursas

Lol. But seriously, the glide is a nice fast understable mid for someone throwing about 250 and needing a disc to turn over fast. Should be good for a new player looking to learn hyzer flips. Once you can throw mids~280-300 the meteor is a more controllable option to do similar shots

The Glide is a lot like a Leopard. Just more understable.

It has the same speed as a Leopard so it is a Fairway Driver. This is not a midrange. I could throw a meteor and a glide side by side and the Glide went about 30ft further.

The reason why people label it as a mid is because it is so flippy and some cannot get distance with it. Believe me though, it is not a mid.

First ace was with a Glide, and the first disc I could throw real turnovers with. Definitely a tweener speed disc, really no use for it in my current bag.
