Agreed DJ, the nova is slower than an aviar.

I put the ol' R-Pro back in the bag for short touchy shots. It's mostly for shots I think I'll overshoot my with my Stingray. Which is very easy to do.

It's not very stable anymore, but I think it's a bit more stable than my Stingray. Which isn't saying much. My Voodoo isn't beating in. Not that I'm trying to hard to beat it.

Anybody check out the new lil Wizard? I have one coming in a few days, apparently they feel just like a polecat. See the pic of a Lil Wiz inside of a regular Wizard! Max weight is 105g

These are pretty much like mini Polecats.

Interesting opportunity here....
Now that I've played around with some Lids and have seen how well Dave can mold them up, I'm seriously considering developing a Polecat like disc for RDG.
I'd imagine a Fossil plastic Lid would be pretty gnarly. Thoughts there?

Yes please!!! There are several of us on here that are screaming for new lidlike molds, and for them to be run in multiple plastics, including premium blends.

I would recommend you pick up a Salient Lock Jaw or Yikun Claws to get a look at a more "modern" interpretation of the lidlike mold. Just please, whatever you do, make them flat and in a plastic that can withstand some tree hits.

I've tried it and I like it a lot. That is another reason that I am considering it. As you might have seen, RDG and Salient are teaming up for some new molds this year and I've also talked with Chris about fronting the money to run a fundraiser batch of liquid metal Lock Jaws.

I do think however that Lids were meant to be ran in baseline so I think that Fossil Lids would combine the grip of baseline with a much superior resiliency to damage. Picture this.... old school KC feeling Lids to cycle

I've never thrown lids really but from everything I hear on here about them I'd be so down to pick up a Fossil lid. So quick. I've talked to Koda a few times about different discs (it seems our game and distances are very similar) etc and the polecat was one of them. I've really been wanting to test out a lid, most likely the pc, but I'd love to give my money to RDG.

I did see that, and I think it was a good choice, despite what the haters here say. If you fund those Lock Jaws, ten of them will be going to me (initially). I've been begging Chris (mostly through Scott) to run them since throwing my first Karbon. I even started a petition in the Salient FB group. If the run minimum was lower, I would've funded them myself.

While I benched my Champ Polecat to go back to my DX, I still contend that they could benefit from the extra durability a premium plastic provides (went back to the Polecat because the Karbon blend for the LJs is pretty fragile). The Liquid Metal molds I've thrown have been pretty glidey so I'm not super worried about it producing bricks like the Champ Birdie I have.

That's not to say I wouldn't be happy to see a more durable baseline blend and really like the Fossil Scale I have. They should make some beautiful beefy (and durable) LJs. I still want a premium option also, though.

I'm a Polecat convert (frickin' tbird ) and you can put me on the list of interested parties for whatever you come up with.

If you can make a polecat clone in gateway plastic I will have to sell my entire bag, plz don't.

Gateway base to me is premium. It's just too good.
