    ok, i will be the first to say it,

    the Wahoo is the STUPIDEST disc name i have ever heard of!!!!! i mean come on. who in the world thought that it was a good idea to name a disc "the wahoo"?

    Innova i know you can do better than that, come on now.

    oh and to sort of be on topic, i have never thrown either of these discs and probable never will.

        How did Innova name their disc the "Vulcan". I would think that Mr. Roddenberry's heirs might be interested in the use of his intellectual property without compensation. If there was compensation- well, I guess Innova is making more money than I thought.

        Then you add in the XB collectors only disc and it looks like a decent marketing campaign.
        What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

          If you have ever fished in the oceans of the tropics/sub-tropics and hooked onto a "Ono" and seen the thing skipping across the water at bullet speed than you would understand the reasoning of the name "Wahoo". But, I do agree if the name(Wahoo)stood by itself with no reference or context than yes it would be a stupid name.

            Dear lord, did you really think that Star Trek invented the word "Vulcan"??

              Oh boy look what the mail lady just brought. Two new shinny Asia Open Innova champion Vulcans 159 & 160 I might just have to find time to get a round in tomorrow morning to try these out.

                Innova would have to compensate the heirs of the ancient Romans. Vulcan was the god of fire and metalworking.

                    I actually think Wahoo is the perfect name for the disc; a super fast disc that stays near the surface of the water (floats). Not all that hard to see the similarities between the disc and the fish

                          Speed 13; glide of 5; turn of (-4) and fade of 2

                          I got to try mine out today at Pier. Seemed really similar to my r-pro kantana, but a little more stable. So far I am pretty pleased with it.
