    With the "Blizzard" plastic....It's a matter of WHERE the bubbles are that affect the stability. If you compare equal weighted discs, the one with more bubbles in the flight plate will be more over stable. This disc will have more of the weight on the outer rim of the disc.

    ... i'm okay with the inconsistencies... hopefully they can fine tune the process 'cause i'm pretty stoked with the extra distance they've given me. they have not, however, replaced my other plastic... simply supplemented...







    tyvek... haven't thrown a ton of discraft... but in my small experience i have run across similar inconsistencies... for instance, i always preferred the light blue or pink eclipses to the orange or red because the darker colors were too domey... but, let's not get too far into that ancient squabble that will never end. i believer discraft can coexist peacefully with innova... they have in my bag for about 15 years now...

      i heard this from several sources when i first got me some blizzard... so for you folk with the overstable 133 blizzard katanas: where are your bubbles?

      my understable katana they are all in the rim.

          very interesting. seems that the technology simply isn't quite there yet. hopefully they'll be able to dial it in, but i'll say again, i am just not surprised that bubble infused plastic is proving to be a touch squirrelly. doesn't mean i'm not gonna still throw it, just means i have to know that i cannot totally rely always and forever on it... until they figger their shit out over at innova and good luck for sure with that.

                  uder stable over stable. The disc are light. My heavy blizzard is 137 and throws great. Are you all trying to over power it. If you are throwing it at full speed as you would your 171gram disc you are throwing it to hard. Try using 70 to 80% power and see what happens. I have a 136 BOSS and a 137 WRAITH both are fantastic and have found a place in my bag.

                    the only one of these discs that has proven understable for me is the 133 katana... but i just don't flip plastic very easily... even vulcans and archons at the lighter weights hyzer out for me. it's what initially got me excited for the technology... flippy plastic, even for emma!!!
