Disc golf has witnessed its trailblazers, and Simon Lizotte is undeniably among the elite. As enthusiasts of the sport are aware, Simon is on the verge of releasing his signature line of custom discs, aptly named the Simon Line. This is monumental news for disc golf aficionados, and as Canada's leading disc golf retailer, Ace Runners Disc Golf is ecstatic to be part of this historical moment.
A Deep Dive into the Time-Lapse
The Time-Lapse, the inaugural disc in the Simon Line, is already setting benchmarks. As the first-ever 12-speed disc in the MVP family, its flight numbers are evocative of esteemed favorites such as the Innova Destroyer or Simon's prior go-to, the Discmania DD3. Crafted to harness the pinnacle of what a 12-speed disc can offer, the Time-Lapse promises unparalleled flights coupled with a predictable and controllable fade. Its 22mm rim width is the embodiment of the ideal interplay between speed and comfort, while a subtle dome heightens its allure, magnifying both its tactile appeal and glide. Those with a powerful throw can expect the Time-Lapse to be a distance marvel, while the more restrained players will value its control, potentially even utilizing it as a wind combatant. With Simon's insight, this 12-speed marvel from MVP, is destined for perfection.
Each Retailer Only Gets 10 Discs
To celebrate the announcement of the Simon Line, MVP Disc Sports released a very limited number of First Run Prototypes of the Time-Lapse. Every retailer who orders direct from MVP, Ace Runners included, were restricted to a scant 10 of this edition. Given Simon's colossal fanbase, these discs are anticipated to be a collector's gem right from its inception and projected to vanish in the blink of an eye.

Stock Run Time-Lapses
