I'll wait for some reviews before buying one.

Looks like Innova's really digging into the collector/niche market lately with a bunch of limited/expensive releases. Don't they already have the Koling Thunderbird? I wonder what the difference here is...

Looks like they threw a lot of names on a lot of discs, probably to keep promises to the Team to raise them some green dollar bills, and to give the collectors something.

Just an incentive to rep the brand. If you're a fan of the player or the specific mold it's a win.

I guess I won't complain. The star plastic on all those discs is stellar. I'm not going to pay top price for them though.

The Jeremy Koling Thunderbirds from last year were Swirly Star. These Madison Walker Thunderbirds are Color Glow Champion. That's the difference.

OK. That qualifies as being different enough. At first glance I assumed they were both Star.

The discs themselves are gorgeous. I have one of the Koling ones.

They look great, but fly even better.

I'm not going to pay the Proshop's usurious shipping charges, nor try to get over their high free shipping threshold. If Infinite gets some in, I might purchase something...

Infinite Disc's free shipping threshold is even higher than that of the Innova Pro shop. Maybe you already have other discs from Infinite in mind that would put you over the top, though.

Every time I shop the Innova Pro Shop, I am like, "Let's see ... one of these, one of those, and this one..." and I am over their threshold in no time.
