Default Teerex, Monster, Max Hole?

So with the Monster, Max, and TeeRex all going OOP, it looks like there is a big hole in the Innova flight chart. I personally donít care too much that they are gone. I just want to speculate that Innova has something new in the works to fit between the Firebird and the Xcal/Ape/Boss. Or does Innova not need to fill this area? Thoughts?

Considering Eagle and Paul each throw one of these, I'm sure there will be a replacement. Or they just won't actually go OOP.

Meh. I think between the Orc, XCal, PD, they still have 10-11 that are fairly overstable when new that cover those slots alright. I'd still think they'd be coming out with another new disc that will hit that super overstable driver slow without going up to a 13 speed like a Boss. PD2s are 12 speeds and wicked overstable, but that's not really a slot many players bag. I think most of us regular guys stick with Firebirds, FD3s, Predators, Felons, ect.

Eagle famously carries a Metalflake Max, but I don't see a lot of people rocking fade 5 discs. Especially in speed 11-12-speed range. It think Rick is still carrying a Scythe or Stiletto, but most pros I see are just carrying more overstable Destroyers or the like.

Personally, the most OS discs I carry are for poor forehand form or get out of trouble shots that are shorter range and just need more lateral movement on short lines (Firebird/MOAB/Viper)

None of them are on the Innova site currently.

I thought the Max was long since OOP, officially anyway, and the Teerex was taken out of the catalog last year(?). The Monster going OOP is the only new info to me; I guess McBeth couldn't save it by rocking it last year.

Maybe they DO have a new mold that will be introduced in the future, or maybe they'll just make limited runs for their pros (like Eagle's Max) and perhaps sell a few at the Proshop. Either way, no biggie for me....

Don't forget the PDx either. It's a speed 11 if my memory doesn't fail me

The Firestorm has a 2.3 cm rim ("speed 14") so no it doesn't fill the hole between speed 9 and 12. I actually don't think that 99% of people need an uber overstable driver between a Firebird and XCal, but if you're getting discs out to 550+ like the top few pros then maybe you do. For the vast majority of us, this should never be an issue though.

Wait...what? Innova has a hole in their lineup?

Alert the media, it's the Lindbergh baby.

Three discs all in the same stability range leave the flight chart. I'm just curious if Innova is going to plug something new in there.
