Default Innova Blizzard

Who all has used the Blizzard plastic and had success with it?
I throw both RHBH and RHFH and top out at about 300 feet with regular champion discs (monarch, valkyrie, monster, discraft XS, beast)
I had a 150 class dragon and it just felt too light. I am seeing 130s in the blizzard. What are these like and will they add any distance for me? I play mainly in the woods but occasionally go to open courses. I know they dont hold up to trees as well as champion and star. Basically is it worth my $14. Oh and innova says they float if under 140g. Is that true?

Thanks, after searching a while for 'Blizzard' all I saw was people trading them or trying to buy them. Not just about how they fly. Appreciate the link

Yes the 130 class Blizzards do float and they can be fairly stable for a 130 class floater. I have found the Bosses and Destroyers to be the most stable but you have to find a good one because they vary from disc to disc. In my experience, Blizzards are fairly unpredictable , especially in wind, so I really only throw them when water is in play. Still, I consider them to be the best long range floating discs.

Meh, I bought a Teedevil a few months ago, I don't have it anymore. It's awesome that it floats, but its too fast for me, so it was traded for s champ teebird which is absolutely wonderful. Doubt I'll get one again as if I want a floater, I'll grab a dragon unless the blizzard is on the CHEAP.

I have a 157g blizz ape for throwing in huge hyzer shots and even when it's windy.
And a 137g for when there is no wind that will just bomb.

Give em a try, if it works... It works. Otherwise They r pretty easy to sell.

I have 3 in my bag right now, getting at least 20' than normal disc, but wind will be a factor. My 137 Katana gets the most distance but cant throw it into the wind (turn & burn) my 138 TeeDevil is pretty stable but will also turn in headwinds. So I got a 150 Ape just for headwinds, does not turn. I use them uphill or when I cant get a runup. I am not a forehand player but I did try them and it seems like they cant handle the high speed, the Ape was the best FH disc out of the 3 as long as i didnt over power it.

Blizzard plastic has added sometimes as much as 70 feet to my drives. I am currently using a 150 Katana, 132 Katana, and a 147 Boss. I get the most distance by far out of my Katanas. I would not call mine unpredictable at all. These things bomb!! They are the perfect disc for an old man like me.

I wasn't too happy with my personal experience with a Blizz Boss, Destroyer and Wraith. Too touchy for me although I did get a few long drives out of the Boss. That said they are the rage around here and I have seen several folks add 30, 40 and even 50+ feet to their normal drives with the plastic. And most of the local proponents of the Blizzard plastic say its just fine in the wind.
