Worth trying out the vette, or should I stick with the colossus and try it in a different plastic/s?
I haven't thrown a Corvette yet either, but I want to. Colossus and Firestorm are fairly close in flight. The Firestorm is a little beefier and has more low speed fade than the Colossus.

A Firestorm would be a better workhorse driver for me. The Colossus is randomly flippy and erratic. In sheer distance I'd say I can throw a Colossus further than a Firestorm.

You could actually bag both the Firestorm and Colossus and find different uses for them. Colossus would be more for understable work.

Just got mine in. Strange disc. I wanted to call it a 14 Shryke at first, but the bottom of mine has a contour almost exactly like a Tern. Maybe a cross between Tern and Shryke. The top gives mine an almost Destrulcan look. Not as bad an an Archon, just slight.

It's more OS than my Pharaoh, so it will sit in the bag waiting for the right wind.

Only bagged mine for a few weeks so far but I love it. For my arm I'd have to agree with some others that it feels like a slightly more stable Shryke, and I really do like the Shryke, just wished it was more like... the Corvette But now I don't have to.

Bit of an offshoot from the Destroyer I'm thinking.

Default Corvette

Threw a Corvette for the first time today. Star, 175g. Here are my thoughts....

Disc is fairly flat. Just the tiniest dome. Very wide rim. Compared with a Colossus, the Corvette seems to have a wider, shallower rim.

The Corvette is very fast. You notice it right away. Lots of zip/penetration.

Glide is marginal. Honestly, I was expecting a lot more out of the glide for this disc.

A hint of high speed turn. I was able to throw the Corvette flat and see some turn. However, it wouldn't hold the high speed turn for long. The Corvette wanted to fade out fairly abruptly. At no point was I able to get great flex out if it.

Sharp, fairly dumpy fade. This also surprised me. I was expecting a more gradual fade.

All in all, the Corvette seems pretty average to me. It doesn't look like Innova has broken any new ground here. I love how fast the disc is, but I found the lack of glide and hard fade a little disconcerting. Distance was OK. I felt like I had to earn every foot of it though. The Corvette doesn't glide or flex out very well. You definitely won't get that effortless, floaty carry.

The discs I'd best compare the Corvette to are the Firestorm and Colossus. All 3 seem remarkably similar. I also threw the Corvette alongside a Shryke. The Shryke was noticeably slower, but a lot floatier and longer.

Corvette: 14, 4, -1, 3. I really didn't like the lack of glide. I was expecting a lot more there. The harsh, early fade wasn't favorable either. The Corvette isn't a bad driver. I was able to rip it accurately for decent distance. However, it isn't quite the extreme bomber I was expecting. The disc is beefier than I was expecting, and takes a pretty big arm to get any turn out of it.
