Most popular discs you never tried
 
Just a curiosity question for you guys, stemming from a discussion at the course the other day.

We talk all the time about all these popular molds we love and yada yada. But what are the "staples" or popular mainstream molds you have never thrown? Any reason in particular you never tried them? My list will probably shock some people (just like the guy I was talking to the other day)

My never thrown list includes:

Roc
Teebird
Destroyer


My reasons: I just fell in love with certain discs early, and also developed an issue with Innova early. Not based on the discs per se, but from a quality standpoint. Another discussion for another time.....

Aviar

It took me a while to think of it, because I have tried almost all of the most popular molds, but I have never thrown one. No reason really, but now I'm motivated to give them a shot just for the experience.

Polecat, one of these days I am going to get my hands on one.

I always have a Firebird in the bag but have never tried a Sexybird.

I think I've tried all of the classic and modern classic molds. The biggest generalization I think I can say is that with the older Innova popular/classic molds, you need to throw them already beaten in to understand why certain people love them so much. Like a Roc/Teebird/Eagle/Destroyer needs to have been bagged for a couple of years and then when you try one that is perfectly neutral but still handles all the power you have, you understand why they are so loved. Out of the box, usually not so special though unless you are lucky and know how to pick them.

Never thrown a Roc or Buzzz.

Wraith and Valkyrie

Roc, teebird. Maybe Aviar? I have an ancient Innova misprint putter that I used for years that I guess is some sort of aviar but not sure.

My knowing how to pick them is all skill, no luck involved ;)

I have never thrown a Destroyer for some reason. Basically it's too fast for my arm
