Try a Wysocki. Flippiest star Destroyer I've thrown in a long time. Not turn and burn flippy, but it turns, and actually holds the turn.

E* Destroyers also seem to be on the flippy side.

I'm still a bit baffled by the whole Victus thing. They're completely overlapping the Starfire with that one.

Innova is the king of making redundant molds.

They're probably just a bunch of unsold Corvettes left over from last year.

I tried explaining this to someone and they told me to stop discouraging players from throwing what they want...

I like to think there is a method here, like maybe they were unhappy with how the mold was aging or the feel wasn’t what the current crop of customers was looking for, but I don’t know that it’s always the case.

It seems to me that their biggest gap is still overstable mids and putters. Maybe the Warhog will start the change, but I still see a gap for a disc that is in the Viper stability range with a smaller diameter and more modern feel.

Don’t tell me Gator, that’s not it.

Just like Plans 1-8 From Outer Space, they tried them and they didn't work

I think all Innova is doing there is increasing confusion. Especially among newer players who don't know discs that well. There is ZERO reason to have two different molds with exactly the same flight numbers.

IMO, Innova should discontinue the Daedalus, Savant, Firestorm, and either the Corvette or Colossus.

I never thought I'd say this, but they should take a note out of the Trilogy playbook. When they announced a number of molds that are OOP there was very little blow back from what I saw and ultimately they will have an much cleaner and easy to understand lineup.

I love Innova fairways and drivers. I have never liked any of their mids.
