I was locked and loaded to pick up a couple Roaming Thunder 2's, but yikes. Swirly puke greens and browns across the board, everywhere I looked. No thanks!

there are some pinks out there

in general Innova's swirl game has been a bit muted and "loseable" lately

Every Discmania special I’ve seen advertised lately the disc in the ad, like the thing they’re showing to try to get people to buy the disc, is a similar mint green with dark gray swirls. Even if you don’t care about how easy it is to see, it just doesn’t look good! When you shop around you see some better colors but I don’t get why they pick an ugly AND hard to see combo for their advertising.

Less ugly plastic material wasted at the factory, more discs lost, more discs sold

Like, cool stamp (leave aside the confusing way they rename the same mold every time they make a new run) but it would be a lot cooler on neon orange or swirly pink...

I'll be interested to hear how the new run of Roaming Thunders fly. Last year's were a touch too domey and low-speed overstable for how I like my CD2's, and sadly I lost my thrower before it ever beat in the way I wanted it.

Dana Vicich posted a video review that shows them flying pretty close to stock S-lines. Max weight will flip to flat and then finish. Upper 160’s will turn over more.

I actually like the '18 version
I took out my '18 Koling Thunderbirds for the '18 RT. The RT still being quite HSS and LSS but less so than the Thunderbird making it more workable for me.

I probably get "better" flights from my "flatter" (but not flat) stock S-line as it flips up a bit easier.

But a combination of G, S and RTs really works well.

I've got some RT2s coming and a local store should have some soon. I'll probably try to get a couple of lighter weights 168-171

They sound tasty, however there were only max wt. available locally so I decided to pass. A flippy one would be nice. I have flat 1st runs that are my flippiest discs, mid dome wings stamped ones that are very workable all around, and the domey RT1s. First and last mentioned I bag. The mid ones are great but I eventually felt that I dont need all those options. RT1 are great for distance control, hyzers and also big forced over anhyzers (my special).

I need to get one of these "flat first run" swirlys to see how understable they are.
Haven't even looked up the cost...but I doubt it's something I really want to pay
