The Sidewinder needs to be pretty broken in to become a roller, especially if you don't have 500' of non-internet power. Even then you should still be able to throw it as a driver for hyzerflip, sky annys, or powered down and flat.

Roadrunner just takes less time to get to roller status. Get a light one and it will roll out of the box for most people.

Very specific. How did you find that out?

It would be cool if pros like PM would say how much their discs weigh in ITB videos. I think a lot of really good pros are using lighter weights.

Yeah the mentioned that at least once in one of the videos I watched. It was in between the many times they were taking about the champ Aviar he was using.

I would like it if for most of the throws of they had a graphic of what disc they were throwing.

Disc weights aren't always mentioned, or else they say "all discs are max wt." at some point. But sometimes they do point out the disc weight, so it's hit or miss.

Also, the videographers do a great job, but asking them for graphics of the disc (when it my not even be known) is asking a lot. As to WITB videos, they often DO show the disc graphic, or else the player is holding up the disc...

so yet another confirmation that light discs are ideal in certain situations (like you want your roller a little light to decrease stablity aiding in the flip to roll scenario).

i looked at the numbers on this one last night at innova's web site and believe they are identical to the saint.

Roadrunners. I throw them a lot in the woods. More stable champ and less stable star, relatively speaking, cover a lot of touchy hyzerflip shots. And they work great when you've played 10+ long courses in three days and you're dwindling in the POW.
