Innova 120 class

Has anyone ever thrown something like a 125 gram Beast or Valkyrie?

I imagine these would be the tailwind discs from hell.

Lightest disc I ever threw was a 140 Destroyer, and I remember overthrowing a basket by 40' with a tailwind that I rarely meet on normal circumstances.

I have a 127 dx valkyrie that is hilarious. It starts to flip up if you jump putt from like 80ft with it. It's like the only disc I have ever rolled in a 30mph tailwind.

I got one of the 97g Polecats. It is a super fun catch disc. Starts flipping at about 40 feet. Plastic is DX but looks a lot like Champ.

I would get another if I saw one, but I think they were made for the EDGE program and I think they made the Wedge as a replacement for the other light discs.

The comedy factor alone sounds worth it....

I actually have a few of these types of discs for my daughter.
97g Polecat
99g Roc
115g Valk

All DX. Also some Blizzard stuff as well down to 135g. The lightweight DX stuff is great for kids (my daughter is 9) but they actually outgrow it pretty fast. She only used the real lightweight stuff for a couple months before "moving up" to 150 class for much of her bag now. She'll use the Roc for touch mid shots and the Valk for long (for her) drives, but doesn't really use the Polecat now that she has a champ Polecat instead.

I've thrown the Roc and Polecat, and while they were funny, I can't imagine a grown, able-bodied person, regardless of gender, ever bagging them, even for a tailwind.

Ultra light lids (polecats, Sonics, etc) are fairly useful, particularly supersonics which are a little heavier than you are talking at 125g. These should not flip up to 100 feet.

I have a 110g leopard that is insane. If I throw it hyzer as high as I possibly can it will perform a perfect anny horseshoe.
