Isn't there an option to actually visit an Innova factory & pick out discs off the shelf?

Yeah, DGU on Fridays.
Well worth the trip IMO.

I was just there 2 weeks ago but I don’t remember seeing these.

Got to test them out today alongside my S-TD, a new Champ Valk max weight, and my Opto Culverin. These puppies are stable. about five throws down I started finding the flight more comparable to my fairly beat in Anax..

Not what I would call a "glideless brick" but they do have a decent amount of fade. I would call them 9/5/0/2 so more akin to a thunderbird. In roughly a dozen throws I didn't have any turn that weren't released poorly due to cold/wet weather.

For distance people they were traveling about as far as my Anax, which tops out about 375 on good days in the field. On a slightly downhill hole I actually had my best drive distance and linewise ever with it so that's a plus!

I've never had a Valkyrie near as OS as a Thunderbird but I'm glad these are extra stable. I've got several champion Valkyries & need some Stars for BH.

Could you post some pictures of your Halo Valkyrie?

Does this count as Prerubing?

Also an OS Valkyrie isn't really what I'm looking for as a thrower. Oh well. Might get a couple for my league anyway

A guy I play golf with often has a G* Valk that's beat nicely. I'd give him $25 for that disc if he'd sell it.

A G* Valkyrie does sound good. I haven't messed with G* all that much. How's the durability?

My friend's looks real beat in but flies consistent. No nicks, just a faded stamp and dirty rim. I like G* durability, I've been throwing it since it came out.

I bag 3 Gstar Valkyries. My go to driver. I throw right at 300' actual football field measurement. I've thrown terns and shrykes and whatever glidey driver you can think of, in the end the Valkyrie always goes just as far so I just throw Valks whenever possible.

My beat in 166g will have a soft gentle turn and finish straight, almost like throwing a putter, no driver flies straighter, really sweet in the woods. My 175 is just less turn, little more fade, just what you'd expect from 9 grams heavier.
