Default Floating Discs

Does anyone other the Innova make discs that float on the water? And if so who and what are they?

I thought any bubble plastic under 150 floated( read that somewhere). However, my star lite tern doesn't float the same way as my buddie's wahoo; which hugs the surface tension of the water's surface. The tern simply suspends. It sinks as much as the fall will push it down (inch or two below the surface, still visible) and suspends. No floating OR sinking.

Well that is the help. I thought my post was great and from real world experience. Just buy some thrashed cheap discs if you play water courses often.

If you need floating discs,there is a line called Aqua flight that you can find on eBay I think these are Molded by gateway and they all float. There are a lot by lightning that float as well make sure they're lighter weights.

People are such asses sometimes. Obviously, people have to work on their game, and not have to rely on a floating disc. That being said, some people don't have the money to waste on discs going into the drink. I guess beginners should never be allowed to play a course with plenty of water hazards with their friends? STAY AWAY NEWBS, we don't want you here!

Anyways, enough with the haters, back to the topic.

I threw a Wahoo for a while, I really liked it. It was pretty strait for me as a forehand disc. I hilariously lost my floating driver up in a canopy of trees, and haven't repurchased since. I did pick up a beat up Dragon to throw on some holes. I like the floating discs more for small creeks that come into play rather than large bodies of water. They are super easy to fetch out with just a stick rather than having to hassle with a retriever.

Throw what makes you comfortable and works for you, and forget about the rest!

My daily course has 3 over the water holes, and 1 is a real monster. It doesn't matter what you throw there are times the wind will still flip it back into the water and a floating disc is really nice in those situations. I've had alot of luck with the Innova Dragon (local store only sells Innova unfortunantly - so I haven't had much luck with other brands outside of ordering online without being able to check them out in person first). I also keep cheap DX beasts in my bag for over the water. They sink but only cost 7 bucks a pop so very doable.
