what are your thoughts on this?
Blizzard technology is done on Champion plastic to reduce weight. Condors and Pebbles are already weight reduced by using polyethylene. We would have to develop a different tech for making polyethylene discs lighter. I believe it can be done.
However, it may not need to be done as the drivers we are making now in very low weights, may be very good themselves as MTA discs. MTA, like distance, is a combination of gaining altitude, and gliding on the available wind for as long as possible. One for time and one for distance. A 100-110gm Blizzard driver might do the trick. Disc speed is basically altitude. Drivers have that in spades. The rest is flight characteristic allowing the longest glide time or path.
