Garrett Gurthie (hope I spelled that right) used a Sphinx at the Utah Open to throw a roller on the triple mando hole (no. 10, I think). Did pretty well, too. 'Course, GG throws a little farther than I do.

Picked up an I-Blend Sphinx. Plastic feels exactly like the newest run of Pro Teebirds, but of course the Sphinx was out first. I presume that Innova saw that people liked I-Blend and were like "People hate the way Pro Teebirds fly, I wonder if this plastic will fly better". Haven't been able to throw it yet, but I plan to remedy that this afternoon.

Reviving an older thread. Not sure why this is in "Other" instead of "Discs".

I just ordered a MF Glow C-blend Sphinx. What am getting into? Hoping for a longer FD type of flight when new - a complement to my champ roadrunner.

Infinite is an "other" brand of discs; ergo, the choice of that label.

You are getting into a whole lotta fun. The Sphinx is allegedly a Valkyrie top and Roadrunner bottom, and it flies very well. It might be a good bit like your Champ Roadrunner, especially at first, but the good news is that you get to have fun throwing it while figuring all that out.

Ah, that makes sense regarding the "other" I thought that was the thread "category"

I was hoping it would be noticeably more stable than my roadrunner in the metal flake glow plastic. Have you thrown that run specifically?

I have, and I think you'll be pleased. The metal flake glow is considerably more stable than the I-Blend.
