I've read these are pretty nice, but here's a link from DGTV:

Looks like it's a very understable midrange... but so is my worn-in 12x KC pro Roc! LOL

I haven't seen one yet, but am curious if they've got a bead on them or not...

My wife just picked-up one of these for me, and I love it! It's real domie and is designed more like a driver. It's an over-stable disc. I used it in the Skunk River Open last Sunday and almost aced two holes. This is probalby my new go to disc. You can see a video demo of this at discgolfTV.com under product reveiws.

by looking @ the pic of it n dgtv, it looks like my kc pro GZ. LOL

It's domier than tthat GZ, but it seems defintiely understable. I'd consider it to be a great go-to-disc for beginners. For a loose midrange, Io'll stick to my beat up Roc... 8)

It's pretty straight. Not really over or under stable. It will do what you ask it to do. Lots of glide, so it can be long, but bad into a headwind. I am sure it will beat into a very understable disc.

I have a Spider that I use for mid-range and it is pretty stable. I am lookin for a disc that's decently understable. What would you guys recommend. Also this might be a noobie question but what does 12x mean? I see it mentioned in the original post. ><

Also, another newbie question. What does 1st run, 2nd run, etc mean?

Ken Climo signature discs say "XX-time champion" or something to that effect. 12x or any other number-x is the number of championships he had won when that disc was stamped, so people use it as an approximation of the run of discs.

Run refers to the batch. When discs are manufactured, they are run in enormous batches and first run means it was in the initial public release, second-run in the second batch made, etc.

There are usually minute, but sometimes gross differences between different runs of the same disc. People get used to one run and want the same thing again. Personally, I don't worry about it unless they changed the mold. Discs' flight characteristics change so much with use, wind, and weather that I generally find some difference in feel, but little difference in flight between runs if the mold hasn't been changed.
