I'm not sure that I-blend is the same as Driver Pro. I've got some Pro SLs and other Pro discs that don't feel quite like I-blend. I-blend is like grippier Star. I suspect I-blend is a blend that Innova experimented with, and it worked out well.

And yes, I think you'll like the Anubis. Let us know how the C-blend ones fly for you.

It's driver pro...they might just have gotten a good run or something. I've had Pro Valks and Thunderbirds that feel identical to the I Anubis I got.

I'm not saying it's NOT some kind of Pro blend. Certainly the I-blends are priced more like Pro than Star/S-blend.

I have I-blend Sphinxes and a Pharaoh, and they're just like the Anubis: very good quality plastic, Star-"ish" but a bit grippier. I've had driver Pro discs of varying quality and feel of plastic.

I've always believed that Star is based on Pro with some ingredients to make it better quality. So my thesis remains that Innova was experimenting with some kind of Pro/Star blend in particular amounts that worked out very, very well. Kinda like hitting the 'sweet spot' in that moonshine whiskey recipe.

Are we just going to give the name a pass? Do you not think it looks similar to anus?

That's a pretty big leap from Anubis to anus...

2 letters! But fair enough. It's the only thing I thought of every time it popped up in the threads - maybe it just speaks to my immaturity. Kind of like that Prodigy disc that I kept seeing HIV or H1N1 or something terrible.
