What color(s) are those Champ Polecats?

I don't regularly throw the rattler any more, but I couldn't pass up the option to get one that wasn't pro-D, so I figured I'd share with anyone else who covets this bad boy
For science, I preordered one. I’ll report back here to see what the deal is compared to pro-d.

Here is the funny thing:
1) I prefer Rattlers; they are more consistent for me and better in the wind than a Polecat.
2) The Champ Polecats have less glide and are more stable, which makes them fly more like a Rattler.
3) The lid in my bag right now is a Lightning Upshot, which is even less like a Rattler than a regular Polecat.
4) You making sense of my life is probably going to require you learning how to drink alcohol.

If you make it back down this way for a round someday, I promise I won't try to die again. You want to play Harmony Bends again, admit it!

I have an Orange one from the first run with the regular DX stamp and the bad flashing gouges. The one with the Jolly Launcher stamp is yellow? Green? Grello, maybe. I loaned my Lightning Upshot to somebody and threw the Champ Polecats for a year; I actually liked them but they didn't really fly like a Polecat. I'm really using that as an excuse not to spend money on more golf discs; the first step to overcoming a problem is to admit you have a problem.

Thanks for the reply. I have Orange and Yellow Champ Polecats with the DX stamp, and the Orange one is in my bag. I use a Pink DX Polecat in October...

Do you see much difference between the DX one and the Champs? Just because I did doesn't prove anything.

No plans to head out that way again for 2020 but....
The thought of never playing Harmony Bends again is hurtful to my soul.

I'm pretty sure Bro D already claimed dibs by licking Three Putt's Polecat.

You guys know this is a Rattler thread, right?

I think the Champ Polecats have a bit of fade at the end that the DX Polecats don't have or quickly lose (and for a fair comparison, I'm talking both plastics in 175g weights). And of course the Champs hold up a lot better, as I tend to hit metal or the concrete bases of the baskets a lot...

And now back to your regularly scheduled Rattler conversation...
