Blizzard Champion Plastic

Any tips on throwing the blizzard champion plastic? I got a boss from a friend of mine and I'm wanting to give it a try but I haven't been able to get it to fly how I want. Any tips would be awesome.

The 720 throw is the only way to throw it. Unless you are Wiggins who can pull it off with only a 360 throw.

How does it fly? We need more info.

Blizzard drivers are the most inconsistent discs I have ever seen. Some of them weigh 175 (What exactly is the point then?), some weigh 130. Some of them look like the mold they should, some of them have a parting line so low it is even with the bottom of the rim. Some fly like you'd expect, some do a complete barrel roll when thrown with 200' of power. I have never seen such bad discs as the poorly molded blizzards that aren't even worth buying as x-outs, even though Innova isnt even marking them as x-outs when they should. The good ones are nice discs though, they just seem like a crapshoot to find.

So what type is yours? What mold, weight, how is it wanting to fly at what distance etc?

Some bliz discs have their bubbles in the flight plate. From what I can gather, these were the earlier runs. Later runs moved the bubbles to the rim. What are the pros & cons? (not asking theoretically, more how do they fly in your experience).

I really have to release my boss on a slight anny and let it pop up to get it to glide out and fly true.

How far are you able to throw it? When you try to throw it flat does it want to curve hard to the left?
