Disc Weights: 167
Review: The Whamo Max Flight was retailing at a Target store for about $7.00. It has a glow bottom which is visable through openings on the top, however, the glow only lasts about fifteen minutes.
The Good: Throwing down-wind or no-wind the disc will fly straight for about 150 to 200 feet and basically drop in place. It has the reverse of most other discs in that it fades to the right, (turns), on a right-handed back-hand throw (possibly due to the top edge decorations). It's made from a rubber material that really grips, hands, chains, whatever.
The Bad: Absolutely terrible thrown into the wind or with some power. With a head-wind it will flip and fall. If it rolls it'll turn and come back to you. Forearm throws also flipped it. The rubber material will begin irritating the hand after a few throws.
The UGLY: It's made in China.

Review: I live near a backwards NC beach, and unfortunately there aren't any disc golf courses within 30 miles of here (yet). Consequently, when you ask people if they sell golf discs they look at you funny.
Recently, I found a Frisbee "MaxFlight" disk at a "surf shop". They had NO golf discs and this was the closest thing they had. It's the same diameter and weight as several other golf discs I have, but it has a clear plastic center and the rim is softer and more "catchable". The retail price was $9.95, but they reduced to $4.95. I bought three for spares.
The following weekend, we played a small tournament with all kinds of talent and discs. The MaxFlight held its own with all the other discs including my Innova Shark! It flew straight and long. I'd highly recommend this nifty little Frisbee if you can find one. However, there were two drawbacks. If it flips over in the rough, or lands in a tree, it's hard to find because the plastic is dark, and there is no color on the underside. Also, if you whack the #@%&* out of tree at close range(like my nephew did), you may crack the plastic. However, it still appears to be holding up, although battleworn. The other Frisbees did not suffer a similar fate although they all hit trees...
