In flight it is much straighter for a longer time before the "Gator fade" kicks in and then just like a Gator, it dumps. This disc is reliable and IMO much more versatile than a Gator, I was getting great flex lines with it and its a great FH or BH approach disc. I would recommend trying this disc to anyone looking for a super reliable OS mid it's a good compliment to any lineup and could pull "get out of trouble" shots, flex lines, Pure hyzer, spike hyzer. The MD5 didn't skip nearly as much as my Gator did but I am guessing I could make it if I needed. Conclusion: the MD5 is a great disc and I will be looking to put it in my bag as soon as I get it dialed in. Reliable, great in flight, comfortable in the hand 'nuff said........
that sounds like how i would describe the gator3

Picked up a 1st run md5 last week on the used rack. The champ plastic feels amazing. It's very opaque, and slightly gummy. Literally the opposite of the jolly launcher junk. Mostly flat top and has great glide. It does not glide as well as my fresh c line md4, but shows more HSS. They compliment each other well

It's slick and I feel it made some of the molds lose their glide. You should see the new teebird3 and compare. It has some pearl in it, easier to see on the ground, lots of grip and glide. I'm guessing the jolly launcher is phasing out,

Good show of self-irony. I dunno, would it have been better off just stamping them with stock S-line and called it that? Just some random swirliness?

I feel like this is a shot at Innova. They probably pay a premium for innova to produce swirly discs and are getting annoyed with the results.

Like my Glow MD4s but wanted something a hair more OS . . so i tried the Malta, like the flight but it feels weird for FH

So i think i will go back to the MD4 and compliment that with something more OS

Never thrown the MD5 so i might try that. . and a Caiman . . anyone have something to say about the MD5 vs Caiman?

Tried:
Mortar. . not much more OS than my Glow MD4s
Drone. .same as the Malta, feels weird FH
Hornet.. odd feel and don΄t want OOP in the Bag
