Default R-Pro XD

Just got one of these from the 2014 GCC; it's a really nice US/Neutral compliment to the Classic Roc. The plastic isn't nearly as floppy or easily beaten as I've read. Anyone else throwing these and what do you think?

I've had one in my bag for about 2.5 years and I love it. Perfect for holding anhyzer lines. A definite must for short wooded holes and those get out of trouble shots.
When I first got it (ctp prize) I wasnt sure about it. Just threw it in the back of my car. Then one day I picked it up and threw it and realized its potential. Its definitely an underestimated disc

Put in some good work with it today; I'm impressed ... really nice glide, very easy to throw, and wants to stick when it hits the ground. Got the flashing off of it today and it was very easy to throw straight on slight hyzers/turnovers. Let a few others people throw it too and they enjoyed it; it's strange how most of the people I know have never thrown an XD.

You just got to be there when the come up for sale. Most were made many years ago in Ontario but Innova releases them for tourneys.

Disc Gof Values has them periodically and when they do, you can ususally pick them up for under $10 each.

I drive with R-Pro and putt with vintage DX since the R-Pro sticks to the ground better and the DX doesn't flex as much and bounce off the pole.

DGV has some in stock right now - stamped for PDGA Worlds in Oregon coming up;
DGV R-Pro XD's

I'm still loving mine from the GCC - it's pretty much the perfect finesse approach/mid disc, easy hyzer-flips, turnovers, no-fade shots, 'elevator' shots, etc. - and it sticks to the ground so you never worry about rolls or big kick-aways. Very fun disc and a great 'form tester' - if you torque it will turn quick.

Thanks for the heads up. I've thrown an XD since the late 80s, all DX, and love them. I just ordered two, these will be the first non DX XDs I've owned.

Love the DX ones... the early runs of R-Pro were really soft but I havent felt one in a while. XD is one of the oldes innova disc's. Amazing disc that doesn't get enough credit. I have a stack of old bullet stamp ones...

What if Innova made XDs in the new XT plastic? Us XD throwers can dream, right?
