First Run Alpha in Review(AL01-17)
We honestly weren't sure what to expect when we launched MINT Discs and debuted our first disc the Alpha nearly 2 months ago(April 21, 2017). A couple weeks ago we sold out of the first run Sublime Alphas, and it looks like Apex plastic won't be far behind. For us it hasn't been about the sales though. We have cherished the kind words and true friends who have reached out to help us grow. It has a created a really good problem, we will most likely be sold out of the first run before the second run is ready to sell.
What we hope to do near the end of each run is a breakdown of how each plastic and color is flying. We'll take feedback from our fans, friends and team to compile this breakdown. This will ideally give you the knowledge to find the flight you want. Above all else, we want to put that knowledge in your hand.
For now lets jump right into the Alpha and learn a little bit more about the the best new fairway driver in disc golf.
We released the Alpha in 3 premium plastics: Eternal, Apex and Sublime. Across the plastics we saw a nice range of stability and settled on the following flight numbers: Speed 8 / Glide 4 / Turn 0 / Fade 2. This rating was meant to be a general flight characteristic so that we could give you a baseline of what to expect.
Below is a full breakdown of the flight ratings based on color and plastic. What do you think about our numbers for each color?
