Blizzard Champion Discs: Floating the Idea

Posted by randomtiz


I was recently in Play It Again Sports the other week when I happened to come across a handful of a new plastic type from Innova. Very brightly colored I had to pick one up to see what it was. To my surprise it was extremely light and felt like I was lifting air. I had never seen or heard of these Blizzard Champion discs before. I asked the guy at the front desk and he was telling me they had just received a large shipment of them from Innova and that it was some of their latest technology. With that being about all he knew about them, I had to do some research.

I asked around and have heard nothing but good things about them from a few locals and friends. This latest technology incorporates tiny “microbubbles” into the plastic for a much lower weight and higher speed. These discs range as low as 130g to 150+g. I like the concept of these lighter discs and that they’ll float on water as well. That’ll help build my confidence on windy days throwing across the pond on White Oak #17 for sure. I haven’t bought one (or three) yet, but I’ve got my eye on them. Just trying to find out a bit more about them and hear from you guys, our visitors on what you think about them. My fav driver to throw is a Katana ~172g to throw. I throw pretty hard so I’m not sure how these much lighter Blizzard Champion Katanas would do. I’m willing to give it a try, but want to know more. From looking online and on Innova’s site I did come across the vid of David Wiggins New World Record Distance launch of 836′ with a Blizzard Champion Boss, dannnng son!

Here’s what I’m looking for-
-Have you thrown one of these Blizzard Champions yet? If so, which one(s)?
-What are your thoughts on them?
-Do you recommend them?
-How do they hold up to wind?
-Do you find yourself overpowering these lightweight discs?

Thanks!

  1. I could not keep my 134 katana from turning over (anhyzer). I eventually lost the disc because of that very problem. Then i found a destroyer that is way to overstable and heavy at 150+. I just won a 138 Boss and it seems to be doing well so far….i have only threw it a handful of times though. I am going out again today after work to see what kind of distance i can get out of it.

    My current 165 weight goto driver is a Teebird.

    Coming from my very fragmented experience with blizzards….. if you go extremely light (130′s), pick a slightly more overstable disc than what you would normally throw in the 170 range. Happy Hunting!
