I threw a flat blizzard Katana today that was a glideless turd. Absolute beef cake too. A thoroughly useless disc. I found it in a lake.

You definitely can't judge a Katana by weight alone.
Yeah, but this was a huge difference in flight and only 4g of weight difference. I think the bigger factor is that the beefy Champ Katana has a much higher PLH. It almost feels like a different mold in the hand.

I'm enjoying the Pro and Blizz Katanas (they actually have given me a couple extra birdie looks on holes that are typically just outside my range), but I'm not sold yet on the mold overall. I just don't know if it is worth investing in a mold that is this inconsistent, unless you're planning on bagging multiples of it and making it your primary distance driver. It's a bit too fast for me to throw in anything other than wide open situations though, so it is clearly a situational disc rather than workhorse disc for my arm.
