Whippet v viper

Can anyone compared the whippet or whippet x vs. the viper? I throw the viper and really like it but the fact I can't find good dx vipers and the lack of a good champion version I need to make a change and it looks like the whippet is almost the same.

I remember a little bit.

They do throw pretty similar,but I got more distance out of a KC Pro Whippet than I could with a Viper. Viper was more of a longer Mid for me where the Whippet actually threw like a Fairway for me.

I do remember that the Viper would sit down pretty good and wouldn't skip. The Whippet had a small skip,but nothing crazy.

Both are killer at forehands and overhand shots.

I don't have a lot of direct help, except to point out that Champ Vipers are available on the Innova ProShop:

I think they have some in Star as well, but not with the cool stamp....

I love my champ viper from the innova factory store. Awesome and over stable. I use it as more of a mid than fairway though. It frs perfectly between my firebird and rhyno.

Eh...For me the Whippet is a meathook. I have to throw it low and hard. The Viper is slower, a bunch more glide, rides a higher line, is more of a "straight with a late dump" type of flight than the Whippet. If I throw them in an open field they land pretty close to each other, but they get there in very different ways.

Viper all day. So versatile for flex shots or spike hyzers and the proshop has champion ones.

I feel like youd be better off using a disc thats more commonly available and in more plastics..

Try the new firebirds, the heavier flat ones are absolute meathooks.

So do you carry both or neither?

From what I remember the Whippit was a tad faster and broke in a little quicker. The Viper is a little larger in diameter. I use to prefer the Viper for thumbers.

My favorite thing about the Viper is that you can get it in 180.
