The Scout is a small diameter durable medium speed overstable midrange. The Scout has a deep rim and a very high dome and its plastic is grippy and durable with a similar feel to the newer Discraft Elite X plastic. This disc is low speed stable, high speed overstable and has distance similar to the longer midranges and shorter high speed drivers. The Scout's flight somewhat resembles that of an MRX except the Scout doesn't require the same kind of finesse to throw it. It has a surprisingly high resistance to turnover for a disc in its class and you can really rip it without having to worry about it turning hard and rolling. Thrown low and flat the scout will fly straight for the first 3/4 of its flight or so before finishing strong left. It has a moderate amount of fade, in the ballpark of an MRX, Sentinel, or Roc but this adds to its predictability. Thrown hyzer, the Scout will hold its line for over half its flight before really "biting" into the fade. Thrown anhyzer will give a smooth, gliding s-curve with predictable finish to the left at the end. Overall, the Scout is a very predictable midrange that should work well for medium range straight to left shots, approaches into a headwind, and for players that have trouble overpowering midrange discs.
