The most recent runs seem too stiff and the feel is a bit slicker. I'll throw one in if the weather hits above 90 degrees.
Hey I'm still a little new to some terms, do you have a picture of what a mini proto looks like? I did recently pick up this spider bellow which I really enjoy. Thanks for the info, I agree about the more recent run of Champion Spider, I didn't like how much harder it was.

Mini Proto is that last post Jdub made. The first runs of Innova discs usually have that four point star logo. The newer ones are bigger, like this...

I still cant believe I tried to throw that shot over the lake...
Oh Brutal how I share your sorrow. I had two of those Orcs and they were in my bag for years. As my game improved they became hyzer flip woods monsters and fantastic rollers. Same for the pearly wraiths. All gone now, but never forgotten.

Default Spiders!

DISClaimer: Oof, sorry for the poor photo quality here. Old phone

Anyway--

Upper left: SUPER pearly Pro-Line Spider. This is basically opaque with all of the swirls in it. Very similar to a lot of the 'first run' mini-proto-stars that you see.

Upper right: More translucent Pro-Line Spider. (You can see some of the wood grain through, even despite the glaring light and shoddy camera work.) I always suspected that this may have been a later run when the Pro-Line was getting to be more of a candy pro. Can't confirm for sure, just my guess.

Both of those are very gummy and grippy.

(The lower two F2's were much later run champ, almost like Jolly Launcher. They were very stiff and a little slick. For some reason they molded up with a lot more dome than the old Spiders.)



Also, just for funsies, these are two of the PFN "Multi-Purpose" stamped Spiders. (Obviously both stamps have been wiped.) Per my observations they were just as gummy and grippy as the Pro-Lines, although not as pretty. Actually, the plastic was very similar to the blue Pro-Line above.

I own 2 like those in the bottom pick. super gummy PFN. They sit in my yard around the practice basket. I really enjoy them and always tell myself I will add one to my bag, but never do. They are excellent approach putters when the wind is up just enough to doubt my wizards.

Just got this Spider to replace my old mini proto stamp green one that decided to lake itself after hitting a tree. This one flies even better than the one it replaced
