  • Black Mamba

    Well i was thinking about replacing my roadrunner here soon but was just looking into the Mambas. Just wanted to hear some thoughts on the disc from some people who have got to throw it around.

    melody king had one in her bag last weekend... seemed very understable but really nice distance... she said she dug it. made me want to go get one. not sure what weight she was throwing. that's all the info i got for you

    (oh, and hers wasn't black, it was pink)

      Right on. I not really trying to use it as a distance driver so much. More for controlled turn over shots for my RHBH since my side arm still needs some work on consistency. Seemed like a good option.

        I have an orange 165g that I started throwing. It didn't display any of the late turn qualities I expected, so I began to think it just wasn't for me. My husband had a yellow 175g, and it was super stupid flippy, so after a few holes trying out our respective Mambas, we switched. He has had some success with the more stable, lighter, orange one I started with, and to some extent I have had success with the flippy one, although it really is super stupid flippy, and now we're thinking that we might have just gotten two freak Mambas. That said, when either of us get our freak Mambas off in just the right way, they do display a straight early flight, late turn, and minor fade for quite a bit of distance.

        I should also mention that another friend has a 175g and it does exactly what it is advertised to do.

          I got one and it is like my roadrunner X10. first time throwing it I tried to throw a skyroller, it did a full flip like a tomahawk. After realizing how insanely understable it is I slowed myself down and was getting some nice rollers out of it. Only threw a few airs hots, but it felt like the most beat up sidewinder i've ever thrown. I used to carry a totally beat to crap sidewinder and it is almost identical in flight. mine is 175 first run champ. they feel good in the hand though.

              Not getting rid of it. still love the beat up roadrunner, just need a new one to get that original flight path back. Thought the Mamba might be good to try aswell.

                you'll probably love it, but it is more understable than a roadrunner I would say.

                    let us know what you think after testing it. I want to see what other people have to say.

                        I picked up an orange one. First run star stamped that weights 170. It is by far the most under-stable disc that Iíve thrown out of the box. I threw it a few times during a round at pier.

                        All hole #ís are the original layout, not the winter layout. (Winter layout is really cool btw! Thanks to all those that worked on it )

                        Hole 1, threw a roller. It turned over too fast and went up the hill into the upper soccer/softball field.
                        Hole 11, threw it with a heavy hzyer angle intending it to be an air shot. It flipped into a roller and went past the short placement.
                        Hole 14, threw the anny route, intending for it to be a roller. After clearing the turn around the trees, it flipped all the way over and landed on the face of the discs.
                        Hole 16, after throwing my 170 star leopard and having it act like a firebird due to a stiff tail wind, I threw the mamba on a strong hyzer angle with about 50% power. It stood up, Síed its way down the fairway and landed 40 feet directly in front of the pin.

                        To give some reference of how I throw, my go to driver is a 170 slightly beat star destroyer that I throw close to 400 when I really get on it.

                          Right on. Sounds like it will be a fun disc to get in the bag. Looking forward to testing it out!

                            How does the Mamba compare to a beat in Pro-Katana?

                              I've got a pro-katana, it is not similar. It feels more like a beat to he** sidewinder. It is much more understable than any disc i've ever thrown.
