I love my sidewinders, but have been meaning to give a RR a shot, particularly for sky annys and rollers. I find that even my slightly beaten in Star Sidewinder tends to flex out earlier than I want on sky annys.

How does the RoadRunner compare to the Insanity? I'm think about getting something a little more understable than what I have.

Roadrunner is slower and more understable in most plastics than an Insanity. I think a Champion (especially Glo-Champion) RR is comparable in stability.

RR has a better feel IMO. It has a deeper rim which makes it easier to grip.

It sounds like you would be interested in a Star RR (170-175g) if you're looking for something more US than an Insanity.

I have used both. All discs depend on plastic and weight. But to get to the point here's your answer

Insanity is faster. From my experience it is very similar, Insanity seems to turn more dramatically initially, fade out is similar. Overall stability I would say are very close.

I have a Star RR 175g and a Neutron Insanity 174g -> Similar plastic and weight. When comparing these the Star RR overall flies more stable, BUT - my other RR's that are more worn in fly a bit more US than the Insanity.

Short answer. Very similar, Insanity faster - Distance potential about the same - get both see what you like

If you want more US yeah I agree Try a Star around 166-170 - that will fly nice and US - My Glow Champ RR at 175g is actually quite Stable, but it took 2 yrs to wear in and its $ now.

Star RR is one of my favorite US fairways. Easy to let go of, easy to range, can make all kinds of lines.

If they didn't make it and sidewinders I'd probably have a hoarder-sized stash of tbs and jk valk in all configs and seasonings.

Y'all ought to stop thinking they are just for turnovers and rollers. They are SO versatile.

That’s all I’ve seen. Haven’t thrown mine yet since they’re white and it’s winter in MT. Almost all tour series are Max weight. Only exception I can think of are the Philo destroyers that come in around the high 160’s and a small run of 2016 Sextons that were 170-172.

The two I have are both 175, though I haven’t weighed them. I’m not super familiar with the mold, but I like them so far. Not as flippy as I expected, but sure do seem like they will season in to a good slot. I had a few good bombs with the one in my bag on some gentle turnover lines. They did fade back a bit harder at the end than I thought but that’s not a bad thing.
