Sure I like understable stuff but not when its super touchy flippy mid that youre trying to ACE RUN its WAY harder to get a good line with that ---- suck, seriously the last few years have all been the same thing --- the last GOOD Ace Race disc was the Zombee where I actually got an ace. Im kinda tired of these Flippy turds. whatever DC GFY

When I think of flippy, I think of throwing playing cards. And then I think of Gambit the X-Man and how badass he is at throwing those. I think I'm going to wear a trench coat to the ace race now to channel my inner superhero.

I've never encounter a flippy disc I would call a turd. I don't even understand it. Must be a form issue for many.

I'm too new to have any really beat in discs that turned flippy (one of my dx sharks is close). The 2016 ace race disc turns easy, but I don't have a big enough cannon to deem it "flippy". I like it because it's fairly easy to hyzer flip it. To me, flippy is when it just turns over right after normal release. I'd like to play around with a disc like that

I have been playing since 1997 and still have 400+ power and enjoy throwing Machetes and Zones but I also have touch and enjoy throwing Stings and Putt’rs even more. Touch is not only for those who don’t have power. It is a skill that all players should develop. I am more impressed by touch than power.

I got one max weight and one 166. These things are so understable, a noodle arm will turn them over. The consensus in my group was negative. I think this might be a good mid for a true beginner, but turns over way to easily to find a place in my bag. I appreciate a good undertstable mid, but this disc was too unpredictable.

Sometime it flies straight like a beat Roc, other times it turns over with low power and never comes back. If you throw it with high any, it will sometimes fade back, landing softly in the chains, other times it never fades back.

Oh well.
Can be useful for those who do not have a Forehand.

Or Like the Mantis, Discraft messed up on the disc. Has happened before in the Ace Race. No the Roach was not a bad disc, just bad name. I have seen people use them as an approach disc with really good power.
