Talking Innova Lion

Does anyone else here rely on an Innova Lion? I primarily use the Lion for anhyzer forehands and especially when I am trying to give it a run and throw in an approach shot. Its been very useful for technical approach shots in the woods where I need to the disc to finish left and don't wanna take my eyes off of the gap (such as in a backhand hyzer).

Also of note, I do use an Innova Gator when throwing into a headwind and when I need a flex shot.

I use the Predecessor the Shark 3 for a midrange, pissed this disc has bumped that off the Innova mold list thanks to how much Dave D is in love with the mold.

I think though I could use the Lion as long as the mold's wing shape is not uncomfortable like a ROC, a Bead is not an issue for discs.

Just checked it out, but I don't see anyone really talking about the Lion there except for the disc specs? Correct me if I'm wrong? I'm more interested in flight path and personal preferences with it. Thank you for forwarding the thread as well!

I got a few with my latest Zen series Lion stamp... it’s a fun disc for sure. For me it flies like a Rancho Roc with less fade. I only have Champs but very interested to see if the glide increases in a different plastic.

Default Lion

For me the Lion flies like a Roc3, but has more of a VRoc rim. Nice flier, but I'm not crazy about the rim.

I don't really know why Innova introduced the Lion. Its way too similar to all the Roc variants.

I won't call it a bad mold, but it seems redundant.

Then Innova dropped a mold that was a less floating putter like glide Shark in the 3 top for it. Then Innova did go further before the Shark 3 was dropped and stopped the 3 top Shark in Star for some reason making it so people had to buy the Champion. I did get 2 backup discs for my Champion Shark 3 from the F2 in the weight I wanted but the discs were micro domed the way some DX Shark mold up due to production/constancy issues with the dome in the DX plastic.

I wonder if this new mold was cost effective? I mean the Shark 3 was just an older mold modified during production thus saving money for the disc design. Now people who want a Shark like disc or even a no bead midrange that is Shark like but not the dome of a Shark, for a better less putter style glide midrange they have one less choice for a mold.

How a DX Lion fly compared to a DX VRoc?

(yes I read every thread I'm curious if anyone else has something new to offer)

If I were named Dave D, I know I would obsess over my failed experiments. "I just know if I got that rim right the VRoc would really catch fire! This time we've struck gold for sure, let's just call it something aggressive and drop the 'V'"
