3. You just can't rollover this disc. I have tried but it always will come back.
FYI I have seen a guy who throws this close to 500 feet hold an ani line all the way to 450 feet before. I didn't know it could be done either until I saw it with my own eyes. No wind.

i would imagine it will become available first run probably next month...maybe february...

i was really hoping this would be a -2/2 like a valk, but they are usually pretty good on official flight ratings, so based on the above experiences, sounds like this will be a 0/2-3...

my first run boss has a little high speed turn, and my latest champ boss hasn't bee thrown enough to get a good feel for behavior (just got it on Thursday), but seems to be more overstable than the first run...

I wonder if Innova is going to take a hint from Discraft and start stamping all their discs with the flight numbers now. That would be convenient for those that actually know what that means. I could see them doing that on Pro, Champ, and Star plastic but leaving it off the DX discs.

"Good pitch to players: The Groove is a Speed 13 driver for the rest of us."

I always love the part in the Innova Dealer page where they "suggest" a helpful sales pitch to the dealers.

i'm psyched if it will actually be a -2/1...perfect tailwind high speed driver, and should be great for a hyzer flip...

Sooo, I hope the groove does stick pretty close to the prelim flight ratings. The boss ended up being to overstable for my arm right now. Has anyone gotten to throw these discs yet?
