Too understable. No matter how much hyzer I put on a Dragon it turns and burns immediately. I think for a floater disc people would be better with the Wahoo. Even it isn't a very good driver though.

I use a Dragon as a floater disc. It is so beat in that I am considering getting a Wahoo for that shot. The Wahoo its made in a tougher plastic and is a heavier disc. I do think if people use a Dragon they are using it as a cut roller.

They then might also make the disc in a heavier weight and better plastic so it is not as understable. It gets so understable due to the plastic it is in, that odd style DX that it goes more understable once it is broken in.

I wonder if making the disc in the Blizzard Champion or the Starlite plastic You could make a 150 gram Dragon that floats on water? It would be more likely to not get more understable right away within a year of consistent weekend play as the plastic is tougher.

I had a first run Wahoo. First drive with it in a completely open field, it magically got a huge gouge in the rim. Probably landed on an ant mound; that's how durable it was. I think that blend of RPro could easily go head to head with Dragon DX for least durable Innova plastic.

I've got a couple 150 class DX Rocs that also got banged up very quickly. I think 150 class DX in general is very flimsy. Whatever weighting agent they add to make DX discs heavier also makes them a lot more durable.

I know they did a heavy Wahoo in Blizzard plastic... It seems much more stable than the R-Pro versions I am more familiar with. For a week I might not have ever thrown any disc better than I threw my first Wahoo... Unfortunately the sweet spot with it was out of sync as it seasoned like a stick of butter in the Texas heat.

I still keep them around as my former home course was heavily watered, and I like to think I will get back there consistently.

Yes I just saw the Innova Wahoo on the Factory Outlet store in a Blizzard plastic, I do know they made a non floating Dragon in Champion at one point but that disc was a non floater. I just want a disc that flies like a Dragon when new but stays at that flight path longer due to a harder plastic like Blizzard or Starlite plastic.

Yeah, I've never seen a floater disc that flew well at all. I'd still take the Wahoo over the Dragon. Better yet, I'll just pack a couple regular beater discs in the bag if I'm going to throw around a bunch of water.

I think Dragons end up in the water so often because they suck and flip all over the place. The damn thing is impossible to control.

.25 cents a shot, make it and you take home a jug of money. Normally a few hundred by the time someone makes it

That'd be a good lake to wade for discs in....
