Default Elite-Z Breeze?

I found a Breeze today, unfortunately it had a name but no number (why?, why foolish person?). I'm one of the few honest people that will return a disc and since I moved from my original home course, returning a disc is a good lead for making a new DG buddy. So I got this 170 g Breeze now and apparently it's discontinued. I'm more familiar with Innova and the closest thing I could compare it to would be a flippy champ coyote. Some of the disc professors need to educate me a bit. Shame it was discontinued, it's a nice little under-stable mid. Appreciate it.

They're nice discs, they can be thrown very straight or with a slight anny or hyzer. Similar to a Comet without as much glide or control (probably why it was discontinued... no sense in making 2 discs that do virtually the same thing).

My 6th ace was with a Breeze so I will always be a fan (even if I don't keep one in my bag).

I am a big Innova fan as well, but I have an EliteZ Breeze that I haven't been able to remove from my bag just yet. It is a great, slightly understable mid-range disc, and the only Discraft disc I still carry. That disc has got me out of a lot of tight spots and saved me several shots. Not sure why it was discontinued?!

I have a Z-Breeze and used to use it a lot.
Just like mzueleger said, not as much glide or control.
It's in my leave-at-home bag. I use an X-Stratus or a Z-Glide.

I can't hardly throw this thing hard at all without it turning and rolling. I like my Skeeter much better. The only use I have for this is for fairy shots. I wish this dude had left his number on it, I'd rather be a good Samaritan than have it collect dust in my room. Oh well.

That's our local slang for an extreme anhyzer rhbh throw meant to spike the disc near the basket, since you make a big sweeping arc with your arm you kinda look like a fairy with a wand or at least my buddy who coined it thought so, name stuck and we've been calling it that ever since.

Sounds like OAT to me.

Eh, maybe but I've got most of that under control nowadays.
