Before the RAPTOR came out i would guess something like that.

But something like a more OS Vulture is my guess. . .or a new 7 5 0 2 disc. . Discraft needs some 7-speed discs

Agrees, all that Discraft is doing right now is running out the huge number of Z Stalkers as the only OS fairway mold in premium plastic right now. The Stalker is more a mold just OS so an almost straight flight slight micro OS mold that can fight the wind really well so it is not even a OS mold. The Predator is considered a OS Fairway but that is not really usable by most as it is so OS and is more a mega slow fairway mold.

I think since Paul McBeth is using the Zombie, as well as the Buzz and Wasp both a faster midrange, he dose not need a fairway disc to use He has the 9 speed Raptor and 9 speed discs act like a slightly faster 8 speed fairway disc as the two speeds are hard to tell apart. Paul McBeth might just not need a fairway disc because he has the OS side covered as well as the Slower control side covered with the Zombie that he can stretch the distance on the disc if need be and is not needing a 10+ speed disc.

Casey, I am asking you again to please stop spewing nonsense, drivel, and false information. It doesn't do anyone any good for you to do so. There is at least one incorrect assertion in every one of your posts, and often many more. Just give it a rest dude. I don't want you to leave, but for goodness sake please just stick to stuff that you know to be factual.

The original trackers were a speed 7 teebird like disc. Slightly overstable brand new and beat in slow as a workhorse disc like a good teebird. These trackers that have come out since are completely different. The raptor is more overstable and faster and a completely different slot.

Just because there are speed numbers doesnt mean a company has to have a disc for each one.

Im not sure what ppl think they will be able to do with a speed 6-8 disc, versus what they have in their lineup?

Raptor/Undertaker/Mantis.... should cover every fairway/control shot you can't reach with your mids.

That’s true and there weren’t speed numbers back then so who knows what the official numbers are on that mold anyway. Bottom line is the ‘05 players cup tracker was a better more consistent disc for that spot than what has come out since.

And for many the speed 7-9 flies similar, but for elite level pros even 5% change in angle or speed amounts to large differences in result.

I'm thinking it will be something like that. DC it is really empty in that speed 6-7 os spot. I think disc speed is really important & I like to fill those gaps. I guess a DC player could use a Bonzai?

The Teebird has been cloned so many times it's crazy how there are any + or - a centimeter here or there to make one without copyright issues. Rival, Instinct, Compass & so on.

My os fairway game is staying put. DC already has a large footprint in my bag & I want keep a healthy mix.

Gotta say I am really enjoying all these people on the book of faces wringing their hands over this round of mystery boxes from DC. Comedy gold IMHO.
