Held one last night...basically they made the Mako3 shallower and added a big bead. Felt good to me.

Sounds like what Infinite Discs was expecting to get when they asked for the Chariot: beaded Mako3.

Yeah it's not a bad feel


I tossed it a few times at league and it was straight with a decent fade. That was around 250 ft.

I'll report back once I've gotten it on the field. Seems like a good disc to compliment my Gilas.

I'm basically picturing this disc to fly somewhere between a Buzzz and a Wasp. What say you?

from the pictures, the rim shape almost seems like a v-roc? or am I totally off base?

people have been calling it a vroc3.

I could see this being a good choice for turnovers when it's windy.

I am looking at a VRoc and Lion side by side. The Lion definitely has a flatter top. Also the nose on the Lion is more blunt and square compared to the VRoc. The bottom section of the wing and bead are identical.

Anyone have a VRoc3 to compare against the Lion?

As I said above, I was extremely excited for the Lion.

I wanted a nice, glidey compliment to the Gilas in my bag.

I was disappointed... It has moderate glide, it actually somewhat OS and really just not that different from a Roc3.


I will keep testing it to see if I'm missing something... But for now, the Lion is not nearly as exciting as I was hoping.
