Aurora MS
Flight Rating Category Value What Millennium says:
The Aurora MS (Midrange Straight) may be the truest flying disc ever made. It has no rollover, virtually no fade, and surprising distance for a midrange disc. All you have to do is control the angle and watch it makes great right curve, left curve, or dead straight shots. Plus it's made from the same material as Millennium's long-lasting drivers. The MS is the best all-around golf disc you can buy. It's the one disc to have if you're just getting started in disc golf. Don't play a round without it.

Review: I am truly enamoured with this disc. I've only been playing a year now so my aim isn't always spot on drives and high speed throws ... except with the Aurora. I actually have had this disc since I started playing but just realized how great it is this week. For the longest time I only used it for long putts because of the softness of the plastic. It wasn't until recently that I decided to test its distance and was impressed.It really does hold any line with realative ease. Its my go to disc for anhyzer shots 200 feet or less. Just today I actually hit the pin on a blind anhyzer drive. What I appreciate most about it is the no joke consitency. By far my most confidence-enhancing disc.

The Arurora is a meduim speed, stable midrange disc...actually everything that Blake Takkunen said in the review before this. I have been using this as my primary putter now for a couple weeks and have been able to sink my putts with a lot more accuracy than I ever was able to do with my DX Aviar P&A. Just today I sank an 80+ putt for birdie (maybe a little luck but mostly skill) because the line held so true.

My Review:
The Millennium Aurora MS is a medium speed evenly stable midrange disc with great glide. This is a great all-around midrange. It will hold any line you give it, making it ideal for medium-long straight, hyzer, and anhyzer shots. If thrown hard and flat it will fight to stay flat, but give it too much snap and it will turn over. It flies similar to a Shark but I feel it is a hair faster. As for midrange distance, I would say it is in between a Roc and an Aviar Driver. The strong-points of this disc are its glide and versatility. The only disc I consider to have better glide is the Comet. For players who only want to carry one midrange, I would strongly recommend this as the one. I throw this disc mainly for left and right curves so I do not have extended experience with this disc thrown flat in windy situations so it is difficult for me to comment much on that. I would recommend this disc for beginners as a first midrange or maybe a first driver. The Millennium plastic is very grippy and quite resiliant to dings and scuffs. I will say that I have ruined a couple of these discs by hitting trees when throwing hard, if you hit a tree direct and fast, the rim may twist or bend. This will be less of a problem for lighter throwers, but should be of note.
