I trolled the MP for a month or two waiting for them to turn up but they rarely pop up. I finally just bought one from Ebay and then another at a Play it Again.

I just want to personally thank Paul McBeth for solidifying his status as GOAT by saving the Nebula. He put a bead on it and changed the name to the Malta but otherwise thank you Paul!

The Maltese Nebula flies good and straight once you start breaking it in.

Good he saved another mold from going oop forever it seems. That is really the only flaw of Discraft is that the company is when a mold is stopped in production, it is stopped for good unless some big force is getting the mold back into production or a plastic made for a mold again. I get some molds going oop due in part to demand or the mold is not great but the XL in all but the Pro D. then make a Pro D XL only available for the beginner package? That makes no sense for a mold that was popular by players who did not want to have to find a Teebird that had the right dome and wing shape for the mold to fly the way a Teebird is supposed to.

If it has a bead is it really the same disc?

Does the Malta lose HSS or LSS first or about equal?

Sure

Just like when Discraft removed the bead from the wasp to create the buzzz. Same disc, right? Wrong. We're bored and make stuff up but don't worry, everything will be back to normal by Easter.

The flight is pretty similar, bead or no bead. Except with forehands, my hands don't really fuss too much over beads so it's not really noticeable to me. It's definitely losing its LSS first and starting to wear in very straight. This Malta vs my Nebulae I'd say the difference in flight is that the Nebula has a bit more natural "S" in them whereas the Malta is more resistant to turn. Very marginal difference though. I really hope all Maltas beat in like this b/c what I love most about the Nebula is that once you beat it to death it becomes the straightest flying Buzzz forever. I think the Malta is gonna be the same, just take a little longer to get there.

I'm assuming you aren't throwing a TF Malta, since I don't think mine will ever beat in, and even if it does, it would just be a less glidey Wasp at that point. What type of courses are you playing to beat yours in (not just for beating in Maltas, but for beating in other ESP stuff, like Zeuses and Comets).
