Default Flick---> innova?

Ok, so im trying to widdle my bag down to just innova..no I don't have to but im THINKING about it, anyways I was gonna put a order in for discs since I havn't in a few months lol...im gonna try out some r-pro plastic (boss and skeeter) and gettin a KC pro aviar...and I was just trying to figure out what the flick would be in innova. I can't think of whats that overstable with that sharp/small of a lip innova carries, I mainly use it for sidearm shots and I never use it for back-hand due to the shallow lip....anyways, if anyone can come up with an answer and if its a good disc or not lemme know

I use the Flick and the Star Max for the majority of my forehand drives. The Max gives some better distance while the Flick is very accurate at 275 -325 ft..

I would say the Star MAX is a beefier version of the Discraft Flick. Although, I wouldn't head to the course without either disc.

hope this helps.

Whippet X? Great disc with a narrow lip, and very overstable. I'm fond of the Firebird myself though... similar to a flick in many respects, but none of the Innova plastic is as skippy as the Z plastic from Discraft, which is why I sometimes keep Z in the bag -- skippy, skippy, skippy.

The Max has a "wider" lip then the Flick, I have only felt a Flick once or twice but I thought its rim/lip was just as wide as a Max.

I love my Max for forehand shots and anything that must go long and left... also great for skip shots.

The older pealy Proline monsters were my favorites... quit throwing monsters when those became harder to come by. To be completely honest, nothing Innova makes is an exact replacement for the Flick. The Flick is a great disc -- especially the 150g Zs they made. Nothing else like it in that weight to hold a hard flat line with a guaranteed overstable finish...
