Default Mirage

Just got the 2016 Innova catalog in the mail and saw a new putter called:

Mirage!

Dont have the catalog in front of me but it was to come only in Star plastic, and be more understable than the Re-tooled Colt by numbers AND on their flight chart.

The numbers, ( trying to remember here ) a speed 3, glide ?, turn was negative 3 ( ? ) , and fade of ?

The (significantly) understable putter is a hard kind of disc to come by. Innova is already one of the few manufacturers to come out with one, and they have the Sonic and Wedge. I think Lat64 has one in lightweight only as a beginner friendly disc. I have both a Sonic and a Wedge and I bag the Wedge for anny approaches. The one thing about the Wedge is that it is so domey and has such a shallow rim that it is awkward to grip and throw. I would love a disc that is just as understable but easier to throw. If anyone can post a pic of the details on this disc in the catalog I'd love to see it.

Innova had a disc called Mirage way back in "the good old days":

From that link:

Mirage
approach
Flight characteristics Understable
Produced around 1985-1987
PDGA Approval date Not approved

Detailed informatio
Height 1,8 cm
Rim depth 1,4 cm
Inside rim diameter 19,2 cm
Rim thickness 0,9 cm


Notes:
Innova model based on the Aviar, basically a beadless Aviar molded in a plastic that shrink much more than the original Dx-plastic. Not approved by the PDGA cause of the 20,8cm diameter. The (Aviar) Mirage was Innova's first venture into the retail market, circa late '84 or early '85. They where a least 4 different versions. The first version has the original artwork, which lacked the thin outside ring, the offset lines on the inside ring above the horizon line, and the lines or graded screen inside the letters. It also is engraved with the large Patent Pending. This and the two subsequent designs were never sold to the public. After the 1st version was viewed by Tim S. & Dave D., they decided that it needed more. To the art was added the thin outside ring, the offset lines (longer version) on the inside ring above the horizon line, and the lines inside the letters. 1st and 2nd version where all light weight,105- 112grams, no bead and a large patent pending engraving. The 3rd version, which had no visible artwork changes was stamped on the patent numbered beadless Aviar. The 4th and final version was also patent numbered, but featured shorter offset lines as well as dots instead of lines inside the word "Mirage".

My Wedge is FAF. I've got a Sonic on the way in the mail. Hope it's here by the weekend.

Hmm... did a quick google search and yup: http://dgustore.com/index.php/womens...ar-mirage.html

But I did a search on the approved discs list and it's not there. Guessing it'll have to make it on there before the event.

Haven't tried one but the different flight charts/ratings I've seen put it as more of a -1 turn, which is pretty common for an "understable" putter.
