No. Clearly you are just too strong to throw Blizzards of any weight or mold. You said it yourself, don't give in!

I have a ~135 Wraith that is pretty flippy, almost useless in a slight headwind, but man it bombs on a tailwind hyzer flipped flex shot. My 135 and 150 Blizzard Bosses are my most consistently long discs, but the Wraith on that shot is my longest.

That Wraith is also excellent at awkward shots that have limited reach back or follow through or poor footing or stance that need to go long. It's a great disc, you just have to use it under the right circumstances.

Contrary to some, I believe the best thing about Blizzard discs is not that they get you more distance, but rather that they give you the same distance with less power, and thus, at least theoretically (in practice in my case) more accuracy at your previous max distance with standard discs.

Different strokes though...

I haven't thrown a Boss lighter than 150g, but I sure love my 150 Blizzard Bosses... I have two in my bag currently... one that is beat to &%$* that I can throw with plenty of hyzer and it will go straight as an arrow, the other is pretty stable even in a headwind.

No such thing as a hyzer-flipped flex shot. If it flips, it's a turnover. A flex shot is thrown on an anny that flexes out.


I'm working a crazy awake shift right now, and have nothing better to do. Just being a turd.

Hey, what you do with your discs in the privacy of your own home is your own business, but if you ever go to trade that disc, you be sure to tell them how you had to "be anle to appreciate blizzard plastic."

Personally I appreciate them by throwing them, but hey, to each their own.

Try a 130-140 wraith. Before I bought the two I have, I was only occasionally carrying a Valkyrie as my fastest driver. I am a big TeeBird fan also! The Wraith would be a good first step up.
