discraft seems to do this every 10 years. 2007 a whole bunch of disc went oop.

Thanks for posting those pictures. I'm not liking what I'm seeing though. It looks like it has that same uncomfortable bottom rim shape of the Predator. Like it's going to scrape the skin off my index finger if I try to throw it FH. The Crush was perfect. Why didn't more people buy it and keep it in production!?

I'm not seeing that curl that Predators have (maybe my bad eyes and blurry pics). I don't care for the Pred's wing either and don't bag them. The Crush has a bit of that going on too, but not too bad. I think the lower height hides it. Straight wings like the now both OOP SL and Tracker, feel the best to me, but I must be in the minority.

I suspected the Undertaker was a Tracker with a tooled bottom, to make it a touch faster/lower, but this new disc looks like a Tracker bottom to me.

The low profile of Discraft Machete is built to slice through the wind and into chains with unparalleled predictability. Use it with brute force to easily manage a headwind, or more like a scalpel for on-demand placement precision on a hyzer or flex shot.

Here's what Machete can do:

-Slices through moderate to heavy headwinds
-Delivers predictable placement precision
-A medium-width rim fits comfortably in most hands
-Very overstable but slower than Nuke OS, adding control
-Gives a distinct edge for forehand and overhead throws

What separates this from a Force?

Force is 2.0 and a speed faster.

This has the same 2.2 stability rating as a Venom. Is anyone familiar with them?

If you can control dome and get a disc to shape up flat, could it add .1cm to the diameter? I don't know much about injection molding.

I remain skeptical about the 1.1 rim depth on my FH grip. With the Crush going OOP I think I will test this against an XCaliber to see which will work best for me.
