PDGA LEGAL: Yes.

GLIDE: Medium to High, for "Lid-ness"

NEUTRALITY: Neutral or low LSS, high HSS stable

DIAMETER: I wouldn't mind up to a 22 cm to help fill the niche that the Gopher and similar lids filled of a wider diameter lid. I'd wait and see how people like the flight of the Beetle to give a clue.

RIM DEPTH: Polecat is perfect for me but I can go shallower.

SHOULDER: Prefer squared off.

THUMTRAC: I'm piqued by the idea of a RDG groove on a lid. It would be good to have something that would prevent clovering (a good plastic like Fossil will probably prevent this but throwing it out there). I really do not want to kill glide though. I think the RDG groove might not hurt glide too much if the disc has mild dome, the RDG and Element putters I've seen are all board flat and a contributor to lack of glide I think.

RINGS OF HEDRICK: I like them but if they damage the structural integrity of the flight plate like Sonics I say screw them. What would happen if you went radial spokes instead? If it's a Troll Cat it's got to have some cheeky feature, right?

RAISED CENTER: Nah, I'd say keep it uniform like a conventional golf disc.

DOME: Flat to mild dome.

OVERMOLD: I'm assuming the traditional route will be cheaper and easier. I think there are two "dream" lids in my mind, a wider diameter Pole Cat in sweet baseline plastic (this seems right in RDG's wheelhouse so this Troll Cat is reflected in my answers) but if a premium plastic, overmolded lid is pursued, I think an overmolded fastback would be elfballs and really novel, perfect marriage of old school and new school.

RIM "BEAD" RADIUS: Blunt, I hate sharp rims that scrape my fan grip.

BEVELED EDGE: Only the slightest bevel, prefer flat.

INTERNAL RIM TO FLIGHTPLATE TRANSITION RADIUS: Feel-wise, I prefer more squared. I do like the Ion's internal rim and wouldn't mind it, might help add a little gyro effect to it but I think squared off would be more popular.

PLUS RIM: HATE plus rims

WEIGHTS: My ideal lid weight is ~160-165g. I like light enough to be liddish but heavy enough that it's not a dramatic departure from 175+ mids and drivers. You can go as light as you like, especially if it helps change up the stability to give player's options.




Random idea: Can we put two "rings of Headrick", one each alongside of a groove? What the heck would that do?

Random idea #2: Polecat with a bead? Has it ever been done putting a bead on a lid?

High glide, with the same stability level as the Serpent would be freaking amazing! The stability kf the Yikun Claws is also great, but bringing it to that level of stability does reduce the glide and takes away from the point and shoot aspect. No Rings of Hedrick" as that turns it from a lid into a fastback, Frisbee style disc; the Yikun Claws managed to put the rings on a flat top which actually worked well. Im okay with the RDG Thumbtrack on it, but would prefer a nice flat top.

I'd like to see this, but larger diameter and PDGA legal.

Everything about the lil' wiz flight is awesome.

I don't want to get into great specifics... my few preferences are 1. Medium to high glide and 2. No dome/raise to the center
The main reason I chipped in is based on weight... as this is a bit of a novelty (at least to start out with), I think it would be worth mentioning that jcassidy has frequently mentioned that a lot of different weights for a mold costs more money, and for this style of disc I don't see the demand as being through the roof. I'd recommend having it available in heavy weights (175-180) and lighter weights (either 150-155, or 160-165, or as low as reasonably possible), assuming it would be cheaper to have two weight ranges than to have the entire spectrum. That way you can suit the guys who like heavy plastic and the guys who like lighter plastic without breaking the bank big time. If this isn't a concern anymore then don't mind me
