You probably will get the shirt at the event.

TDs can order a few packs with a shirt voucher instead of an actual shirt. Good for the extra packs we order for people who sign up after we place the order since we don't know what sizes to order.

Almost everybody (100+) at our event received their shirt, however they didnt have a lot of XXL shirts so some of those folks got the voucher card instead.

Disc was interesting, not really flippy and not a lot of fade, guess the Leopard guess wasnt too far off. Majority of our holes were less than 200 ft so couldnt really hammer it until afterwards.

Never thrown an XL and the Mantis only at the ace race it debuted at. Slower Mantis may be right, definitely less fade than AR Mantis, IMO.

You might be right on the Zombee SS, another I only threw at the ace race it debuted at. For some reason it felt a tick smaller than the AR Zombee, Zombee felt like a faster midrange feel while this AR17 felt like a slower fairway?

I dont think JRW III is too far off on numbers (6/5/-2/1), to me it didn't seem all that flippy so might be 6/5/-1/1? Had some nice glide on it. But with only a small number of full powered throws too small a sample size to say for certain.

Anyone take a caliper to the rim yet? Considering picking up some used discs on EBAY if they're 1.7 plus.

Just for the sake of putting comparisons into context:
AR Mantis (run in Ti) was decidedly OS... being compared to Vikings, or beefy Tee Birds.
Production Mantis (Big Z / Z) were fairly neutral to US.
The two don't fly at all similar to each other, and basically fill different slots in a bag, without really overlapping.
