Review: This is on of only 5 discs in my bag that i didn't pay for. These 5 came out of a rather large lake and none of them had names on them so they went in my bag. What I really like about this disc is how forgiving it is even screwing up so bad that some of my other disc would have been lost in some bush somewhere. This is a comfort disc since my first distance driver was a dx eagle when I started playing a year ago. I always know that this disc will pull me out in a bind.

I love the KC Eagle, I have a 168 gram and this disc is very fast and pretty overstable. The course I play on here in Seattle has a couple holes where the O.B. line is just off to your right and the basket is like 400 feet away and to the left with this disc I can throw a little bit to the right and know this thing will come back and be long and inbounds. It takes a little bit to get used to this disc if you haven't thrown one before or are a beginner.

My Review:
The KC Eagle is a fast, overstable driver. Slightly more overstable than the DX plastic, the KC Eagle is a bit harder to turn over and has slightly sharper fade. The disc's resistance to turnover is between that of the Gazelle and Teebird with similar low speed fade to a Cyclone. The Eagle has great glide, making it perfect for long s-curves on open holes. It is one of Innova's fastest drivers, trailing only the Valkyrie, Firebird, and Banshee in speed. The KC Eagle is definately a distance disc. If you have the arm for it, the Teebird is about 20-30 feet longer but the Eagle is definately a more forgiving disc. I have recently switched back to the Eagle from the Teebird because it gives me better average distance if I don't get the perfect throw every time that the Teebird required of me. The heavier weights of this disc might work into the wind but I would recommend a disc with greater resistance to turn in its place. The Eagle will probably be a bit hard to control for beginning throwers but this should be a great distance disc for players who are able to turn over discs on the level of a Gazelle or Cyclone and are looking to move to the next step.
