I use it for 300ft glideless hyzers

No, but I do love an old PFN firebird thats beat to hell paired with a fresh star FB for the 265-320 hyzer shot that is so often the high percentage shot to take.

Oh yeah, and the Rhyno X.
I just saw this on Infinite's site. Anyone know anything else about this yet? :


Disc Information
The Warhog appears to be a new putter from Innova Champion Discs. It has a thumbtrack around the rim, similar to a Pig or Rhyno. Not much is known about this disc yet. The flight ratings are estimates and will be updated when Innova releases more information.

No info but how about some speculation. The hawg is a vtech rhyno so my guess is that the warhog is a vtech pig. Pig top and md5 bottom.

Since the MD5 was brought up, has anybody else compared it to a flat top gator and not been able to tell the difference? I've got a stack of color glow MD5s and factory store glow gators and I can't tell the slightest difference between them.

I believe the MD5 is the Gator3 top, but with a convex Gator-style big bead bottom.

Wouldn't that make most disc plastics for the Gator/3 less OS then the MD5?

As they relate to the current Gator mold, the 3 top and any san-bead variations have made the discs less overstable. The MD5 has the added variable of the new wing shape, but being beaded and blunt, it is still pretty OS. ...And then there’s the flat-top-processed Gators, which are crazy glideless and brickish. In other words, it’s complicated, and sometimes run-dependent.

That is why I said most plastic. Metal Flake Champion Gators that are almost flat top have almost no glide at a 1 or even less like 0.5, but same other flight numbers as a Gator.

Hmm, never knew the hawg was rhyno based and not pig. Going to have to look into that disc.
