Zephyr

Postby The Clergyman » Wed Aug 16, 2006 11:14 am

What the h-e-double toothpicks is a Zephyr :shock: I saw one for sale at Highbridge, WI. As a former ultimate player it looked tempting. Wide diameter, wide rim, heavy - but I can't find any info on it. I opted for the z Buzzzz that day - so tell me, how does this fly? I suspect it's a putter???

From Innova's Site

Brief Description: Best disc for accuracy contests. Great as a throw and catch disc or to introduce catch disc players to the game.
Available Plastics: DX
Best Choice for: putting, grade school learners, short approaches, beginner putters, straight line approaches, jump putts, fast greens, converting from "catch discs".

About the Zephyr
The Zephyr is a throw and catch disc. It has long been a favorite for the Overall events of Discathon and Accuracy (160 grams). The Zephyr is great at the beach, at the park or on the disc golf course. The Zephyr has a very straight and true flight characteristic. The Zephyr’s Thumtrac® gives it extra durability and a great grip, especially for sidearm throws. It’s an ideal disc for playing catch at the beach.

The Zephyrs I've thrown (earlier models) had no thumbtrac, but they are fun. When they came out, they were the most overstable disc out there. I believe Dave D. from Innova had distance records in mind when he made it (or maybe that was the scorpion), thrown high with annie it will flatten and glide. It's a lot of fun, I wouldn't mind having a tourny where we could use only vintage discs... If it's a deal, I say go for it as they're a hoot and a half.

the condor is generally the MTA disc of choice, w/ the zephyr generally being #2.

Theres a guy around my area, In Baton Rouge... WHo ppl call "Zephyr Man"
ALL he throws is a max weight Zephyr. He's an older dude who always carries his Zeph in one hand and a Budweiser in the other. He does pretty decent in the Am division tourneys at the wooded courses. But on the longer open courses he struggles, and usually shoots 3-5ish over. But not bad for just throwing that big ass oyster platter
