I'm looking for some overstability. Something I can throw at a hefty anyhzer line in an open field and have it come back instead of crashing and burning off to the left.

Huh? Your getting 430' out of a max weight Nuke. WHY would you want to throw a not only a blizzard disc BUT a super light weight, light weight blizzard? And, a Katana at that?

Something fishy... this makes no sense. There's no reason really

No offense of course.

I just want to try something new. I keep buying the same types of discs over and over and I want to switch it up. Up until a month or two ago, I hand't bought a new disc in 4 years. I recently switched out my 177+g X Comet and replaced it with a 166g X-Link Medium Ibex, and started favoring my 150g Star Teebird as opposed to my 170g Z XPress. I've also started working my backhand and have taken a liking to (of all things) a Champion Monarch. So I figured why not try a Katana just to do it?

I agree, if you're throwing 430, not sure what the problem is other than you need to develop your backhand more. I would just work on throwing your putter nice and level at full power bh, when you accomplish that move up to mid ranges, then fairway drivers and finally distance drivers. Once you're throwing max drivers straight and level then you can start developing max distance lines either by hyzer flipping or throwing high flex shots. I'd stick with 160-175g discs.

My friends and I all bought blizzard discs when the first came out and they bombed 50 feet farther than our normal throws..for about a week or until you hit a tree. Then they become floppy pieces of crap. They are also no very accurate at all because they are so light its hard to get your release points right.

If you have your heart set on trying them I will say I had my best results with blizzard plastic that had all the bubbles in the rim(flight plate)

I guess I still don't understand. If your throwing 430' your doing what your supposed to be doing in this game of disc golf (in regards to driving). Why regress and change just for the sake of it? Do you have an arm injury, is that the reason for 45 gram lighter discs?

.I know a guy who throws a blizzard Vulcan and throws it thumber and it does a full roll and pans out and rides like a backhand after the initial roll. He can throw it over 500'. Does he ever use it in a round, no...

Is Blizzard Champion really so bad that some of you are trying to talk me out of a disc I'm just buying for the hell of it?

I threw a Blizzard Katana today for the first time, and throwing it RHBH, I had to almost release it at a 45 degree tilt, if not more just to make it fly straight. And it still curve off right and didn't come back before it fell. I was able to get it around 300 (which was pretty good at the time since I was out testing a buddy's disc supply and had already thrown out my arm quite nicely). The guy who owns it was able to get it probably closer to 400 on a throw that never actually faded.

If anyone cares, this is my bag

Drivers:
Champion Sidewinder, 172g (My goto disc)
Gateway Assassin, 175g (Evolution Pro line) (Under 300 foot accuracy drives)
Champion Monarch, 175g (Backhand drives)
Vibram O-Lace, Medium, 175g (holes where I would use a Sidewinder, but need more distance and speed)
R-Pro Boss, 155g (So beaten all it does is roll on the ground)
Star Boss, 168g Well Seasoned (Forehand shots that need a huge hook at the end, occasional long backhand drives)
172g Nuke, Whatever plastic has the Gas Mask on it (Used for distance shots)
Pro Beast, Unknown weight, probably around 168-170 (Hyzer flip backhand shots where fade is needed at the end)
Z Avenger, 173g (rarely used, Sidewinder backup)
Champion Groove, 171g (I don't know why this is still in my bag)
Z Nuke OS, 175g (For when I need a meathook)

Fairway Drivers
2x Star Teebird 150g (Short Holes that require accuracy where my Assassin would be overkill)
Echo Star Teebird, 175g (Strictly Backhand teebird)
DX Leopard, 175g (Doesn't get much use anymore)
Champion Banshee, 175g (Wooded hole disc)

Midrange (all thrown backhand exclusively)
Star Coyote, 180g (straight, short midrange shots)
X Comet, 177+g (general purpose midrange)
Medium Ibex, 166g (newcomer to the bag, used for any shot where I need to plant my disc under the basket within 250 feet. currently making my Coyote and Comet useless)
X Stratus, 172g (Rollers)

Putters
DX Aviar, 170g
Soft Voodoo, 168g

I'd kick out my R-Pro Boss for the Katana if I chose to get it. The Boss is a dog disc at this point.
