Default Wombat love

Picked up a Wombat the other day and so far I really like it. My wife, who I'm really working on to start playing, picked it up and was having some nice throws with it. It's pretty beginner friendly, especially with all of that glorious glide. It forehands easily and takes an easy backhand like a champ.

The Wombat is smooth, good for straight shots and slight fades or turnovers. It resists sharp turns, though, so I'm searching for an understable mid for the sharp slice duties.

Agreed, the Wombat is a good beginner disc. I like the Foxbat, which is the Wombat's non-VTech cousin. Unfortunately, the Wombat and Foxbat don't hold up great in headwinds, but in good weather they are great.

Try out a flying squirrel by ABC.

Bought a Wombat but found it a bit too understable. Replaced it with a Mako3, which I love. I know they aren't intended to do the same thing but I thought the Wombat could be that US to straight mid, depending on how much I cranked it. It wasn't, at least for me. I have gone back to throwing my Kaxe Z RHFH until I find an US mid that I like.

I prefer the foxbat to the wombat, seems the wombat won't hold a turn throughout the flight for me. It's either dead nuts straight or going back toward straight. The foxbat, especially once it wears a bit, is a little more touchy, but no matter the release angle it turns over throughout the flight.
