Putting them away was a mistake.

That looks like Deflector type of non useful OS. Why is Discraft so against a speed 6 or 7 mold with that kind of stability?

My Buzzz OS's are plenty OS.

It is getting ridiculous, but they know the discs will sell out, so you can’t blame them. Blame the nutjobs who are shelling out ridiculous amounts of money for plastic.

I’m happy to support up & coming players who need the money to keep touring, so $25 for a disc is perfectly fine. I’m a McBeth fan but he doesn’t fall into that category. This is just another case of the rich getting richer. The less known players who really need the money aren’t going to sell nearly as many $25 discs as someone like Paul.

I have a Axiom Pyro in that slot. The Deflector was rediculously OS, im guessing this is a Drone replacement.
Its a good idea to stay away from a Buzzz type mid.
After this Mid release i think they will just release his 4 discs in diff plastics next year. (Unless he creates a roller disc as his 5th proto).

At 1.9 Pauls new mid should be a lot less stable than the 2.6 Drone . . A Buzzz OS flight with a Zone type rim could be a fun disc

Agreed. I’m starting to see the error of my ways. I putt with Challengers but the Luna has shown me how much better I like not having a bead for a driving putter.

Looks like a pretty big bead so it certainly won't feel like a Zone. If you want a Zone-like mid, look no further than a DGA Quake.
