Innova Champion Groove for Sale/Trade ($9)

Posted by randomtiz

I’ve got an Innova Champion Groove 167g Disc for sale for $9. I would rate this Groove’s condition at about a 4/5.

This is a great, high-speed disc that throws long and straight. It has a cupped underside “groove” on the rim that allows this disc to be made into lighter weights than its other fellow wide-rimmed drivers. It can be thrown low or high and sidearm or backhand. This disc has not been thrown too many times. It has a few minor surface scratches but no major scuffs of dings. It does have a tiny nick in the rim but does not affect the flight. Great disc.

I am also willing to trade for a new Katana (preferably brightly colored 167-172g) Let me know if you’re interested.

Condition description:
5 = Nearly perfect (only thrown a few times)
4 = Very lightly used (One or two minor dings or scuffs)
3 = Normal used (normal amount of dings or surface scuffs, will look like most discs people have in their bag).
2 = Moderately Used (a couple larger dings/scratches and/or a slight misshape)
1 = Heavily Used (disc has seen a lot of use but still has some life left in it)

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?
