      Yes, and yet there are six Innovas in my bag. I still suggest that Innova's slogan be, "No Two Alike." But getting you to buy three or four to find the one you like could just be smart marketing.

      Tee Shot Drivers:
      150 R-Pro Boss (added twenty to thirty feet)
      150 DX Wraith
      149 DX Wraith (soon to get the ax, new and too understable out of the box)
      160 Champion Monarch (I can turn it over without losing it completely)

      Approach Drivers (full pull situational):
      167 Star Wraith (turns predictably left)
      167 FLX Surge (dependably straight, if not long)

      Approach and Downhill Drivers:
      176 FLX Buzzz
      178 FLX Buzzz
      178 FLX Buzzz
      175 FLX Buzzz

      Approach and Putt:
      Four Times JK Pro Aviar-X (approaches, left turn putts, and very long putts)
      Ching JU JU (long putts and big annie putts)
      Rattler (goto putter)


      The driver situation will surely change when my three new ultralight R-Pro Bosses arrive this week. That 150 DX Wraith will hang around, as it's beaten in and flies right. The Star Wraith is my way stable left turner, but the goto long straights will be the Bosses.

      Why four FLX Buzzes? Too much fun. Throw 'em hard, they go straight. My bag is set up for old man, me, at Lucky Mud, and there are two steep downhills that I just have to throw all four at. I gotta get at least one park job out of the four. They're also good on a couple of short holes.

      So, six Innova, six Discraft, and one Ching.

        I never was an Aviar fan. Always liked the XD and the Aero more so then the Aviar. Still, I keep all the Innova around for others to use. My loyalty to Discraft stems from two places. 1.) The rating system and description online makes sense. If it says stays flat and lands soft, it does. For some reason their discs are the same everytime. Very predictable. I don't like the guessing game aspect of Innova discs (went through 5 Vikings before I got another like the 1st one I fell in love with.) 2.) The Buzzz and Force are money discs. Plain and simple. I could probably just play with a stack of each in different plastics and states of wear and never really need another disc. I just like to have them

            Lie? Interesting choice of words.

            I didn't say you lied. I definitely think you are exaggerating and maybe don't know how to reproduce the same throw three times in a row but I didn't say you lied.

              Wow! Have you actually thrown these discs? A destroyer and a TeeRex are not the same. And they are both VERY different from the Max and the Monster.

              Seriously... you throw these, right?

                Well, they are Innovas.

                  Right. My bad. They all throw exactly the same.

                    I hope one day they finally make a FLX Wasp cause I'll convert to it in a heartbeat!

                      No, you never know what you're going to get for sure. Example: I have two 167 Star Wraiths. One is like a Wraith (if one can really say) and one is much like a Firebird (whatever that means). Two Innovas can come from the same mold, look the same, and fly like some other mold (or variation thereof). That's the gripe about Innova, as I see it. Yet they make the drivers I can throw farthest, so I buy a few to find the one that works for me. Innova is a lottery where you buy several tickets to win one good disc.

                        Depends on a variety of factors such as arm strenght as well as the type and condition of the disc.

                        With my weenie arm, a new star teerex flies similar to a beat star destroyer. A new monster does about the same thing for me as a lightly worn Max.

                        But one of the first things I learned about discs is that individual results may vary. The disc that is the shiznit for one player may not do squat for someone else. But that didn't keep me from trying damn near every disc on the market as soon as I heard someone say it was their favorite disc.

                            Anyone who thinks that Discraft discs do not do the exact same thing are either ignorant or lying.

                              Protip: do not do a google image search for "beating a dead horse" at work, particularly when your boss is in viewing distance of your monitor.

                              Anyway, there was a thread on DGR not long ago about what the market shares are of disc golf manufacturers. There were many estimations, but a guess of 80% Innova, 15% Discraft, and 5% Other doesn't seem too far off. When a company is making that many more discs, there's that much more room for variation. So yeah, while Discraft may have variations in their plastic, your chances of getting "out of sync" discs from Innova are that much higher.

                              Also, with some of these bags people are listing, I notice a key component is being omitted: a back brace!

                                says the guy with 4 star destroyers in his bag lol! Now there may be slight differences in flight characterisics between destroyer-teerex-max-monster... however, you will notice, the better you get or more comfortable you get with one or two particular discs, the more you rely on one disc to be able to do what the similar discs would do with slight modifications in form and strength.. For me, i am willing to sacrafice 50 feet of distance for added control and accuracy and would rather throw 3 drivers 6 times each than 6 drivers 3 times each... and all these new discs, trying them out etc really isn't helping me at all... got the special blend wraith and teerex-x recently along with the r-pro boss, plus lost my go-to champ boss.. gosh I need like 5 hours of practice each day to finally understand what I like and need, but for now, i notice i do much better when i just rely on the wraiths and teerexes for a whole round... back to the topic on hand, whats in your bag!
