Default Dynamic Discs Bounty midrange

Apparently a wide diameter midrange. AJ Risley makes it sound like it's fairly neutral.

I saw a short video of AJ throwing it. Looks like a -1 turn/1 fade type of disc. He was getting them out there nice with what appears to be only 65% power. I saw Eric Oakley comment on the DD facebook post, and he said they fly like a Speed 4/Turn -1.5 disc. So I'm surprised to hear it's a large diameter mid since Eric estimated it as Speed 4.

Also, I plan on protesting this disc since they could have just kept making my beloved Evidence instead.

I suspect (pun not intended) that we're going to see this a lot. DD kills off some good discs, and then they think we'll rush to buy discs in the same flight arena of the ones they killed?

Too bad Discraft got the Star Wars license, this would be perfect for some Mandalorian/baby Yoda stamps.

I bought two with my last funny money win. That disc is so useful.

I can mostly understand the variety of distance drivers, they can fly very differently at 450 feet. I can mostly understand the variety of putters, gotta have one that feels good in your hand and fades and glides to match your putt.

I cannot understand the variety of midranges. The oversaturation of the market is absurd. Midranges are so workable, they don't need to be perfect.

That is a very good point.

The argument I made back when DD announced the cut is that they should have kept a token understable mold rather than solely cutting based on current sales. DD's understable mids have basically been competing with themselves. If they had decided to keep just the best of their understable molds (cough, cough, Evidence), then that remaining mold likely would have seen a sales boost anyway. The problem wasn't that the understable molds were bad, it was that they had too many of them that were similar.

It's wider than a Roc and Comet and its max weight is 181.8(!)

This is the same diameter as the Fuse, very similar specs except the Fuse is taller. A low-profile Fuse sounds kinda weird.

Mids are very control-oriented discs too so the hand-feel factor is a big part of it. A lot of old school guys like the slower, floatier kind (Roc/Comet) and newer school guys like the faster, more driver-ish kind (Buzz, etc). The demand for such different types of flight isn't nearly as prevalent in drivers, with discs like Cyclones, Gazelles, and Sabers going the way of the buffalo.
