Review: I bought one of these after seeing how people worship them on the Message Board on the PDGA. Now I understand why. If you are looking for a max distance driver this is obviously not it. If you are looking for a versatile disc this could very well be it. It does really well at overhand shots I am going to skip ace a whole on my home course in the next year or two with this disc, been close 3 times already. Also great for skip shots, for sweaping hyzers, and for low straight fairways that need a slight left finish. Liked it so much I bought a spare and hope Dave D was serious about the Star Whippet.

Review: I've played a few rounds with people who throw whippets, and they always talk about how much they like them. I got the deal of a lifetime - $5 for a brand new 166 Whippet with a bad-ass tye-dye. I love it. It flies like my Monster, but a lot slower. Perfect for short hyzers, or side-arm skip shots.

Review: Fantastic disc. I am new and not very BIG ARMED (yet). I was a little intimidated by the description for this disk as it is very overstable. However, it is getting windy now and I am constantly turning over my Orc and Wraith. So, I figured I would give it a try. As a fairway driver, and with little glide, I can not get the distance of my faster drivers, but I instantly fell in love with this disc. My concerns of being a novice were unmeritted. Every way I throw it (RHBH, side arm, overhead) it consistantly sails. It is straight, with a good controlled fade and I regularly hit 250ft (which I think is pretty good--straight into the wind--for a beginner). I will be using this one all winter when it is windy.

My only negative comment is that the plastic is not as durable as other Pro Line discs from Innova. My Pro Wraith can run smack into a tree from 50 feet, and I can't even find the point of impact. The KC Pro Whippet seems much softer. I hit the sign on top of a basket at 150 feet and it took out a nice chunk.

I have the KC Pro model. Love this disc for those left hook shots. You can just lay on the power and get great distance and reliability. Also great into headwinds.

My Review:
The KC Pro Whippet X is a fast, extremely overstable driver. It will hold a very tight left curve, making it ideal for extreme hyzers, low ceiling approaches, and skip shots. This disc flies well into a headwind. Speedwise it feels quite fast out of the hand, a bit faster than a Cheetah, but slower than an Eagle or Valkyrie. The strength of this disc is its predictable overstability, the weakness is its lack of glide. This disc will not carry very far. For Throwers who can throw an Eagle 350 feet, they are probably looking at more like 250-275 feet maximum with this disc. The Whippet X is more overstable than a Banshee and Firebird but I'm not sure how it compares to an Elite Pro Xtreme. This is not a beginner friendly disc.
