Default Does the Innova Katana = Discraft Nuke?

Maybe a dumb question but I'm still a newb. Are they the same or very similar?

I would say no. I've never thrown a Nuke, but I've thrown things with similar stability. For example, Discraft labels the Nuke as a 1.6, which is stable to slightly over stable in Discraft's numbering system. I have an Avenger which is a 1.8 and it flies nothing like my Katana, which is a -3 High Speed Stability (HSS).

Succinctly--I don't think so. Katana:understable :: Nuke:stable.

Depends on what Katana you buy. But for the most part the Nuke flys more like a faster Boss where a Katana flies like a faster Beast or Valk.

Stability from over to under in this order: Z Nuke - Star Katana - ESP Nuke - Champion Katana - Pro Katana.

Z Nuke has much higher low speed stability than all listed but the Star Katana is close to the same high speed stability, operative word is close when you compare it to the other chioces. From the ESP Nuke down, there is a world of difference in both high and low speed stability from the top two.

I'd suggest getting a Pro Katana for understable, a star katana for stable, and nuke for overstable and you have your drivers set.

Buzzz for all your mid needs

Aviar for putting.

Simple bag, minimal molds,
