Also comes equipped with a VTech rim. Maybe we should call it the VWombat3

I hope they release a G* VWombat3+. Just to watch someone with a 3-digit PDGA number make a face when a noob says what he's throwing.

Oh man, I had a first run G*VWombat3+, that thing was money, but the production run is just too domey, amiright? Oh and the blurples came out with more speed and overstable., I will pay $50 on a Facebook auction for a blurple.

I'm really not sure what the Wombat3 is going to be about... flat topped, sure, but where it will fit into things is going to be a big question. I guess we'll see when it comes out.
I've tried ~90% of Innova's production lineup over the past 2 years including every midrange they make. Not all of them clicked with me but at least I'd "get" how they were supposed to fly or what types of shots they were made for...except the Wombat. If all discs flew like that thing, I would've quit the sport. Just absolute garbage.

Could it be that the Wombat was an almost good disc and it was just easier to release the "3" variant than get a new disc approved?

Like others have said, the Wombat tends to turn and burn. Hopefully the W3 will correct that tendency.

I love my Wombat. Great for touch anhyzer shots, or when I want to throw something dead straight with low power. Great in the woods. But hey, that's just me!

You're likely right about the approval.

One would think a Wombat3 would correct the Wombat's turn and burn, but the flight numbers are exactly the same (and that was not the case when the Roc3 and Mako3 came out; their numbers were different than the Roc and Mako). So I'm going to wait for some tryout videos and reports come in before I consider buying it.

I may have posted it earlier, but I agree with you. My Wombat was good about hitting anny lines on dogleg-right paths in the woods. I just never had enough of those shots to justify bagging it.
