Innova pro pig
 
How rare are these things? My local course as 3 of them kicking around along with a few first run skeeters. Are the worth picking up?

Pig yes. Skeeter helllll no ;) haha

Don't think they are rare, but they are great discs!

Old pro pigs, definitely. Great overstable hit and stick approach disc. I even drive with mine on occasion

If it's one of these, they are fantastic discs for approaches and short drives (not rare, but I think the Innova Factory Store is the only place to buy them):

They start out quite overstable but as they beat in, they lose some of the fade and pick up some glide. Very nice discs!

Innova discontinued the Pro run for a while, so they were running around 30 a couple of years ago, but the factory store has new ones now so they are available again. Now only if they would do a KC type pro one.

So last year I bought a pro pig from the factory store, and now I finally wizened up and purchased some more.

However, the wings of the discs are different from the one I got from last year - the older one being more convex, and the new ones being flat, kind of like a magic. Did innova pull out a good ol' fashioned bamboozling and switch up the wing of the mold?

(the one on the left is the one I got last year)

The one on the right looks like the wing on the Blizzard Champ version of the Pig. I have 2 of the Blizzard, 2 Pro and 1 R-Pro... the pro and r pro I own have the scooped out wing on the left disc in your picture. My blizzards have the rounded wing

That one on the right is :gross:. Innova what the H- are you doing to my favorite approach disc? I have a stack of them, but not as big a stack as I'd like if they are going to change the mold. I didn't like how the Blizzards flew at all. Have you thrown the new one and how did the flight compare to your older one?

Haven't had a chance to yet, but I'm hoping the difference in flight isn't too crazy
