Completely missed the chair bag. Neat.

Anyone try the Lycan or TeeDevil yet?


Haven't tried out the Teedevil yet, waiting for warmer weather for a more accurate test throw.

Lycan appears to be a Mako wannabe.

Cue the mountain boyz.

They were hucking them at the shire on opening night.

Verdict: They go far, but as Thumber said about the Wahoo last year; "direction may vary".

I'm not sure I understand why you would want one. They are way more affected by the wind. You may end up with some monster drive in a tail wind but how much accuracy are you sacrificing?

I can see them working ok for someone who is trying to gain D

I'm not in any rush to get one but I'm curious to try one out.

I occasionally carry a lighter driver for certain holes in the region;

Hole 3 longs at CF comes to mind, big uphill bomb.

Hole 1 at Alcove is a good example as well.

The Blizzard plastic stays just as stable as a heavy champ. It's the same disc with more glide. I bought them in Clearwater Fl. and have thrown them a fair bit so far. A headwind is a no go, but with calm or tailwind conditions they go far. If you already throw any of the discs they made into Blizzard accurately, I dont think your accuracy will suffer at all with the new plastic. The point of the plastic is that you can throw lighter weight without loosing stability. Watching us throw them at all is a bad example because Dan and I dont throw very accuratly to begin with lol.

I've got a Wraith, 134g, and I've only thrown it on one outing and it was windy, windy, windy. Not the best environment for a newbie to the 150 class to test his newest disc, but as much as it didn't really go in my intended direction, it wasn't that bad of a result. I've seen worse; cue the Epic.

I will say one thing that I am certain of....A Star or Champ Boss does not do the same things as an R-Pro Boss....Stability is directly affected by weight...I can throw a Star Boss 400ft with an S shape but an R-Pro Boss may go the same distance for me but most of the time it would be turning and not as much fade

Aren't you really, though, talking about different molds and plastics and not weight?

True, but I've felt the R-Pro and they feel completely different from Pro or Champ plastic.

The Blizzard is definitely going to re-act differently than it's heavier Champ brothers. It's a neat product for newbies and slower arm throwers. My students love throwing my 150 class discs.

New driver from Innova the Dominator.

Quote:
The Dominator is a speed 13 plus distance driver designed to give the best of control and long line shaping for higher power players. Similar to the Katana, with more high speed stability, the Dominator has the glide to maximize distance with a predicable turn. Lower power players will be able to use the Dominator in weights down to the mid 130s in Blizzard Champion plastic.

Sadly, no artwork is yet published for this.

With a name like that, well, you'd have to expect they'd go with a {sensored image description} , given their history.

They're sure to sell an entire full colour hot stamp run in record time.
