Review: Found a 170 Riptide in a pond at Elk River, and after throwing it a bunch in a field I have this to say: It\'s basically like throwing a Pro-D Crush, in fact it feels exactly the same to me as the Crush, maybe a tad less stable. The DGA Pro plastic, however, is great. It is as durable as the other Champion/Z stuff, but feels much less slick, and I\'m able to get a better grip on it. Its a good disc into the wind or for hard hyzer shots-I dont throw hard enough to use something this stable as my main driver, but for wind and/or sidearm, this disc is pretty solid.
