Default 2013 Ace Race Disc is called "The Mantis"

"Dear Ace Race TD,

2013 Ace Race prototype disc is now the Mantis

It's official! PDGA has approved the 2013 Ace Race prototype, and it has been renamed the Mantis. All copies -- including the official Ace Race version -- are now PDGA tournament approved.

Look for an announcement soon on the release of Mantis as a stock Discraft golf disc. In the meantime, please let your players know that their discs are PDGA legal.

Thank you,
Ace Race Team"

Hopefully it'll be run in some other plastics too.

Agreed, I don't think discraft has any discs only available in TI plastic.

I'd maybe try it in Z. That offshoot of Ti they used for that disc was atrocious.

I liked the flight pattern of the disc, didn't like the feel of the plastic much at all. Used them for awhile and then put my Vikings back in the bag.

That said, I would definitely pick one up in Z or ESP.

my 150g ace race was so damm beefy. still mad all the TD had was 150-160g that was stupid. honestly probably wouldnt have signed up if i knew that. it was also stupid throwing a hard fading fairway 100 ft

anyways /rant if they came out in z i would try it out. might wait for a buddy to buy it and throw it

not a fan of esp though

I would love it in Z at 175 as my lost banshee replacement.

I was praying it would be named the Mantis. In the interim I was calling them "The 2 Discs in the Cardboard Box in the Garage".

Mantis - continues the insect theme without driving the bee motif any further into the ground.

Mine are in the bag I got them in. If I look inside and see just one, I'll know they mated and the remaining one is female.
