Default 2017 Discraft Ace Race

Any word, rumors, or speculation on what this years disc will be?

Poster on Discraft's Facebook page said each players will get 2 discs, a t-shirt, and a mini Buzzz & more. Looks like they dropped the towel from last year but upgraded the mini to a mini Buzzz.

Hope they do the same, or similar quality, t-shirt as last year. Those were nice shirts.

Since the XS and XL went OOP this year, I'm thinking a speed 7 fairway would make sense. Something between the Stalker and the Mantis.

When was the last time they had a strong fan following for a disc from the ace race again?

Is the goal a "strong fan followed" production disc?? It seems to be a popular marketing strategy with most manufacturers following suit with identical tournaments. Do we see a slew of "strong fan followed" discs from all of the copycats?

The Heat and Mantis probably do OK for Discraft. I see a lot of them around here, granted in Discraft's backyard.

Glides and Meteors are pretty popular down here.

I see a heat from time to time in GA, but other than a lot of old school guys that love Buzzzes and Comets Discraft has weaker representation down here. In MI, I used to see the Mantis and even the Nebula a fair bit.
