Well, kinda. Driver nose, mid rim. Old school when even "drivers" had narrow rims like todays mids.

My wife is loving the X Stratus and beat DX Leopard these days. You can always call it a long range driver if that will help.

Thats actually where i am. Ive nailed a few in practice but have yet to really dial in a confident hyzer flip.

Wow. I love how discs have an element of evolution thats moving just fast enough to watch. I guess each disc is a little piece of history. Very cool.

A Stratus has a lot in common with a Stingray. Both are understable and both were considered drivers for a long time. Because of the glide you get out of them they are really long mids unless you overpower and turn and burn them, so they are really tweener mid/fairway drivers to me.

My daughter still rocks a Stratus as her turnover driver; it gets sneaky long for her.

I definitely remember an ITB that included a Stratus. That particular pro used it for awkward stances, and generally insane flip shots. It's got a great nose for rolling, too.

For me the Stratus was the ultimate beginner driver. It was the first disc that made me feel like "I can do this". Throwing it 250' and straight seemed like an amazing accomplishment.

Stingray is a good comparison, though my star Stingray is surprisingly stable and a useful straight mid. Not nearly as understable as the DX ones I've owned.

I think thats my problem on this one. I took it to the field before a round and gave it a few throws amongst the others and geeeeeeeeeez this thing is sooooooooo understable! Like... unbelievably US. I mentioned in "how i played today" that this thing is gonna be some kind of specialty shot disc because it really turned over just immediately... i mean its almost got a spiral to it. I couldnt get a good roller out of it because it turned over before it got any distance or direction. So, as you said, if overpowering it causes turn and burn then thats what im looking at. ill have to spend some time on it for sure.

That being said, and as others suggested, it might end up in my daughters bag... if i could get her to pick it up to begin with.
