Yeah, I bag a FR Z Undertaker and I'd rate it at about 8/5/-.50/2. You were making me feel kinda inadequate....

It is nothing like a Teebird. How far was that escape flying for you?

It's pretty much the shortest driver I own, except for specialty discs like a Stratus or Flick. I haven't thrown it much cause I didn't like it, but I'd guess I'm not getting it much over 300'. It just wanted to go straight and dump left half-way through the flight- pretty much no glide at all. It goes about as far as my glidey mids. I throw my Teebird around 350' and the Heat a bit past that.

Like I said, I haven't thrown it much. I only field tested it 1 day- maybe I was having an off day, but I was also field testing the Heat the same day (bought them at same time) and was hitting it pretty decent.

At OPs power I'd expect the roadrunner to be more of a roller disc and not used much for turnovers. But, with that being said...

For almost all of my hyzerflip or turnover shots I'm using a big Z mantis. One of the smoothest turns I've ever gotten out of a disc that's not called a Comet.

Champ sidewinder, Z heat, icon phenom, gold line saint, and lucid escape are all good discs that will probably fit that slot too.

My champ roadrunner was quite overstable compared with Star or G*. Thrown soft (300-325'), it would start straight, bend slightly right and land pretty much flat. Thrown hard and with speed, it was more of a cut roller. My G* was a roller straight away.

Yeah, in champ, neither the Sidewinder nor Roadrunner fly to the numbers for years. Of course, that applies to most understable drivers from Innova. The -# ones seem to stand out.

For true turnovers, nothing is quite as fun as a seasoned PFN Champ Roadrunner.

Heat, or get yourself a fresh star roadrunner.
