Side note I've been struggling to bag a lid or not. I tend to lean on lower lines and firm throws, and always question why am I throwing a Rattler instead of a Clutch. Aside from a very rare drastic air bounce I can't think of a single shot where they're superior. Buuuut I also love them

I've debated ultimate players about the definition of what a lid is.

Slow, slow predictable annys
BH flick-of-the-wrist shots when timber is an issue
Soft landings
Tight Hyzer-flips
Running putts w/o blowing past
You can make a rattler sound while flashing the 'double finger fang flash' during it's slow flight.

I was watching the Nick Hyde tournament and seeing what GG can do with his Sonic has made me really want to get one in star plastic. Is a sonic considered a lid?

The Sonic is technically considered a fastback.

I mean it's both. It's a fastback lid. The decider on what is a lid is the wing, not the top.

Unless I'm wrong. I don't think I'm wrong, but I've been wrong about that before.

It's a lid if people look at you silly every time you pull it out of your bag. For me, it's a Polecat, for GG it's a Sonic, for koda it was a Doggy Style, for you it might be a Zephyr. YMMV.

Not only is it a lid, it's a Lightning lid.
