Default Blizzard Technology

Dave's been hinting at it on FB and the PDGA forums... Just saw this

"Blizzard technology allows us to offer Champion discs in weights lower than you ever imagined. Not only can the weight be drastically reduced the flight characteristics of their heavier counterparts translate to these lightweight flyers. Try them here at the Factory Store 1st!!!"

I'm having a difficult time believing the flight characteristics are the same. For discs I like I tend to carry a 162 and 172 if I can and those weights fly quite differently. Of course, this is in Star and Pro plastic, not in Champ.

theyre doing this because wide rim drivers are hard to get in low weights and still be in premium plastics. slower stuff is easier to make in lower weights,which is why there are already 150 class versions of slower speed stuff unlike wide rim drivers hence the blizzard technology

Just saw this on FB as well. Is the flight plate just filled with lots of tiny bubbles to keep the weight down? More weight is concentrated to the rim of the disc?

D Visions - Interesting idea with the gas bubbles trapped in the plastic. I guess the biggest question is, is this a first look at floating champion discs? That would be awesome. And also, can you combine the sparkle/glitter with the bubbles, or make Blizchamp glow discs? Those would be pretty nice too.

The Innova Factory Store - The possibilities are endless! We've just started experimenting with Blizzard Champion and we're very excited to see where it goes.

im not positive the flight will be duplicated, but if it flies somewhat the same it would be cool. i dont throw bosses, but a 150champ that flies similiar to a max weight champ as opposed to an r-pro 150, it could make the bag for absolute max-D at some point (wind permitting). anyone else kinda feel the same way or am i crazy..
