Review: My Review The first disc I ever owned was a midrange aviar, after awhile it broke on a tree at burke lake as I learned how to play. the second disc I owned was a scorpion, at first it seemed hard to throw, sinc my first disc was an approach disc, this was a midrange/ driver at the time. I have never had a more rewarding disc, making those clutch 30 foot puts, Well I'm not going to lie and say I made them all the time, but they were frequent enough to surprise my friends. I am so dismayed that Innova stopped producing this disc. I totally reccommend this for beginners, amatuer's (can't speak for the pro level) as an all around driver /long approach/long range putter.. if there was only one disc you could own I would say this is it... you can still find them on Ebay everyonce and awhile, BTW they get easier to control the more they are worn in.... to a point of course...

Review: I played disc golf from 1987 - 1994 then took the sport up again in 2006 when we moved to a community with a disc golf course. I never meant to stop playing but when you get married and move to where there are no courses in the area, other things just take over.

Ever since the Scorpion first came out I have been throwing them. I currently have 12 scorpions and I'm disappointed about them no longer being available. Two of my 12 have never been thrown. If you get a chance, they fly far, fast and are easy to control.

My first disc ever bought. At first I thought it was broken, it always turned left. Well once I learned to keep it straight I saw huge improvements in distance over what I was using before (Wham-O 165(frisbee))......But that's another story. Once the Scorpion got banged up a bit I easily 'overpowered' it and it went right. I bought another one however,and I recommend this disc for beginners who are looking to get distance without a lot of effort.An excellent first driver disc but has a lot of low speed turn which takes some getting used to. Starts to turn right as it becomes worn.For someone who doesn't throw with a lot of speed off their hand, it would be a great disc to stretch out your drives. I'd like to see a Champion Edition Scorpion. Since the Scorpion I've realized that I personally need something that is more overstable. It just goes right too easily, for me, anyway. I do know some players who don't and probably never will have much power in their drives and for those I would recommend one. For power players with a lot of speed off the hand I don't think this one is for you. Try a Firebird Champion Edition - yea, that's the ticket.....!
