Not 4 letters, not continuing with the Greek theme...someone needs to advise Paul on design continuity and naming conventions.

My money was on it being called the Hercules. I would have lost that bet.

It's also small diameter. Seems really weird to me.

Maybe Paul only wants Mcbeth discs in his bag. This could be a Zone replacement.

I hope that there will be a few more "beginner friendly" discs in Pauls line up. .

We have a few very young beginner players in our club that really likes McBeth and wants to throw his disc. . .but everytime i see those 10y old beginners throw a ANAX or ZEUS 150ft i feel "Thats not the disc for you" . . .i talked to a father yesterday when his young son throw the ZEUS. ..but he basicly said " i know thats not the right disc for him, but he΄s a fan o McBeth and wants to throw his discs"

I had just made a post saying take a hornet and make it more OS with a Big bead lowing the lip, I had just thought that would be more like a ROC disc. I have also been saying a bunch a slower Wasp with smaller diameter rim. I was close with this new disc, being in that slot just different mold to the Zone. I hope this mold dose not put the Zone OOP, lots of dumb players will not use this disc as they would a Zone simply due to it being called a midrange and not a putter/approach disc.

So then the next is a faster fairway Buzz? Thus taking the Zombie out of his lineup of discs to use.

Discraft OOPing the Zone would be the dumbest thing I could ever possibly imagine. It and the Buzzz are the only discs that that have that are the consensus best disc available for that slot.

Yeah for a straight midrange, the Buzz is the best at that so much so that the Shark 3 slight OS and Truth Almost a Buzz both became imitators of the Buzz. Zone has two major imitators, one with the Harp and the other with the Rat. Most of the other super popular OS approach type discs came out at about the same time as the Zone or did not copy the Zone but rather another popular approach putter.

Now for straight slight US midrange disc, the Comet is the best at that slot as others do not handle minor wind or high power player as well as a Comet can.
