Lab Experiment #1

First released: December 2011
Current status: Retired


Somewhere along the way during the Dietz development we did a small run of a particular prototype that was later rejected.

This particular version is narrower than a Dietz and weighs a touch more. The catch zone shape is also a bit different. We have 21 numbered but there also about a dozen out there floating around that aren't numbered. We thought it would be cool to make them available as it has quite a different play from the Dietz and makes for a cool collector item.
