Wow selling x-outs as......blizzard technology? That's some seriously good marketing!

Right now I carry a 149 elite Z flick and its my baby. I have hit a 180ft upshot for birdy with the '49er flick. My best secret weapon for putting is my 158 proto gummy japan open champ XD, even better I can drive 300ft with it
go here to shop herodiscusa.com
Yep that's a cool site... been wanting to try an R-Pro Xcal for quite awhile. I've thrown Champ and R-Pro Katanas from them that were sweet. I have noticed with my PD's though that the 150 class is less HSS and LSS than its 166g counterpart right out of the box.

These definitely look interesting, but I'm just not a Champ Plastic Fanboy. I like the grip on Star, DX, and Pro Better (in that order). Durability isn't an issue for me.

LOL. It's funny I actually work about 6 blocks from Blizzard. I see those dudes at lunch every day. They are so entitled. Entitled to make 10 bucks an hour.

I love all this talk about "I am way too much of a bad-ass to throw a light weight disc. I can throw 450'!"

If you throw that far and can't control a lightweight Wraith or Boss, then your form sucks. I throw a beat up 150 class CE Valk without problems. Granted, that is in a dead calm or tailwind. I've seen guys that throw farther than I with lightweight discs, too.

Ill say it again.....Innova has NO clue what will come out of the press. They continue to buy different plastics from different companies with no idea of what they are getting. Then proceed to past them off as either the same "Star, champ, pro, or DX" or new Improved plastic (for instance rpro is just CRAP dx plastic for one) ... Thats how they come out with all this off the wall junk... People eat the Sh*t up. Money money money without quality.

Ordered a few but someone snagged the one purple wraith that was available.
They're not X-outs if it's done on purpose.

they are f2's or x-outs because some aren't perfect or are slightly flawed. the blizzard tech = bubbles or whatever they are. i spoke with them on chat about it.

exactly!

dave rattled off a short story about a 1000 some odd rated player throwing these things. if a 1000+ rated player can blast em, i'm sure most mortals can throw these with positive results.

there's too much of "i'm a MAN i only throw max weight". McBeth told me that one of the reasons he won the memorial was because of a 165g Ch Firebird. i'm pretty sure he throws further than everyone here on the interwebz.
