Great disc. IMO, the Ace Race is better than the production version.
IMO they're better for some shots/lines, but not necessarily better, period.

The AR and production Mantis fill completely different slots. One's decidedly OS, and the other is stable to somewhat US.

Noodle arms will get more distance from the production runs. Power throwers might get more use from the AR run.

Default Super (unpredictably) understable
I got two of the 2018 Ace Race discs this past weekend (South Mountain Ace Race, Bethlehem, PA) and boy are these suckers understable... I appreciate a good undertstable mid, but this disc was too unpredictable. ...

Sometime it flies straight like a beat Roc, other times it turns over with low power and never comes back. If you throw it with high any, it will sometimes fade back, landing softly in the chains, other times it never fades back....
Echoes my experience at my local AR. Watching my pals and some very good players just miss and miss and miss ...and miss...and miss and miss.......

That disc was all over the place.

I thought I got lighter ones (mistake?). The DC rim sticker said 155-159 on both of them, but when I got home, one was 170g and one was 160. (Both are for sale on Ebay at the moment...)

I would have been feeling demoralized if EVERYONE on my card hadn't been having such a tough go. ―\_(ツ)_/― I gave it a shot !! (36 to be exact!)

I was talking to a Discraft pro that compared it to the OOP Breeze.

The pics and descriptions do make me think it is an US Zone. Can’t wait to try it out. If it flies like a Comet, as some have said, then it makes sense that some people struggle with it. Comets are very sensitive to very slight release angle changes and the flight numbers can be all over the place depending on how it’s thrown. I personally love throwing Comets so I’m hoping that will translate well with this disc.

Maby this disc is the US Wasp? The Pictures the disc looks like a Wasp that is slightly taller but modified without a bead. Could be the Meteor replacement. Seems most of the newer Ace Race Discs are Replacements though the Sting is not a a Impact replacement as Discraft says, that goes to the Glide. Not sure if the Glide was ever an Ace Race disc?

So what's the final word on this disc? Looks like I'm going to the local event in mid October, if there are still openings. Super glad it is a mid this year, too bad it sounds touchy and US. Probably go early and get max weight and flat.

I would agree with MJ. Feels like a buzzz flies like a Comet with less glide. I can see the zone ss comparisons if we say zone = avenger then ar18 = Avenger ss.

Overall very fun disc to throw and IMO could be a good buzzz compliment
