Seems so similar, did they finally get rid of the injection points? Otherwise, I'm not sure I see any difference that would make someone buy one over the Atlas, just a cooler stamp.

Think it still has the injection points, you can sort of see it through the flight plate.

Sounds like yet another mold that won't sell and will quickly fall by the wayside.

Didn’t they just come out with the Lion with the same numbers and likely more comfortable feel?

Another mold to try out, bag for a month or two, then sell/trade away.

I feel like they've come close with the Rat. I'm equally as accurate with both discs, but the Rat feels more comfortable.

The Rat is as close as they've gotten. And I do think it's a good mold. Equally as comfortable in the hand for me, which is high praise.

For me, a fresh Star Rat will fly the same as a seasoned JB or Soft-X Zone. But no Rat will match the meathook status of a flat/sunken Z Zone.

The Rat is good but the Zone is a benchmark in that category. (Imho, ymmv.)

The Buzz like disc is the Shark 3 a tad OS Buzz, the Good OS Buzz not a Buzz OS and the Zone like disc is the Rat, though Rat is more like a Harp in flight.

Lion sounds like a Shark 3 eventual replacement actually. It even flies exactly the same as I have seen on YouTube.
