130 Blizzard Champion Katana?
Anyone have any insight on how 130-139 weight Blizzard Champion Katanas fly? I haven't throw Blizzard Champion plastic yet and I'm looking at trying something extremely light. I usually throw heavier, close to max weight discs for distance.(172g Nuke, 175g O-Lace, 168g Star Boss, RHFH). Recommendations?

how far are throwing these

Why did you settle on Katanas? Why not try a Boss?

My very limited experience has been poor throwing blizzard forhand or into the wind. FH 250 or less was possible with my blizz destroyer, but above that very touchy and unpredictable.

The thing to remember is that you'll be able to bring these discs up to speed a lot easier making them a lot more sensitive than their max weight counterparts so your form will have to be very clean to keep from turning them into rollers.

I threw a 132 for a while. Super understable. When I first got it, tried to throw if flat, kept turning and burning. I kept it for a "water disc" (don't play that many courses with water) but didn't throw it for a long time. Got it out, and hyper flipped it - and the thing flew.

I do not have a huge arm or great form. I can get putters out about 250 - 275, and my fairway drivers 300-325. I play wooded courses. You can see the course below is a 300' hole with a relatively tight fairway. I have hyper flipped this out to 280 or so, landing at the bottom of the hill.


This is throwing from a standstill. Nice easy turn to the right, then fade at the end. My disc is pretty domey. Out in an open field, I can get 350+ if I rip it right (keep it low, etc). Can't go into a head wind.

I have recently been throwing an upper 160s unlace for this shot, as I get a similar flight path, but can do an x-step and crank the disc a little more.

I like that katana though - if I shank my unlace, I sometimes take a second shot with it - just have to dial it back a little.

I can get my Nuke out around 430'. The others I can get out close to 400 as well, but not nearly as consistently as my Nuke. Backhand, I think the farthest I've thrown was 380' with my Boss, but other than that, I can only throw around 320 on average with my backhand.

I already have 2 Bosses, (155? gram beat to death R-Pro and 168 gram Star) so I figured I'd try out a Katana before picking up yet another Boss. If I like the plastic, I'll probably wind up getting one anyway.

I love blizzard Katanas. I have two. A 149 that is more understable and a 158 that is more overstable. I don't have the biggest arm but I get 350 pretty consistently with both of them.

They're not great wind fighters at all. When it's windy I'll break out my Star Wraith and hit around 320.

The blizzard Katana is definitely my distance disc of choice and when you learn how to use them you can get a huge amount of control with them.

there super inconsistent. my buddy found a blizz katana barely used. its his headwind disc. like 140g and beefier than his champ metal flake fb.

he busted one out at a tourny cuz there was a stiff headwind. everyone looked at him like he was stupid, and he was the only one not to flip his

also i have thrown some that are paper plates too. screw blizzard plastic
