the gator is nothing like the drone.

the drone was a knock off of the demon.

closest thing innova has to either is the whippet.

where would i go about getting acetone (is it just a liquid you pour on it and use a rag to scrub off the logo) to remove stamps from some of my disks? does it work for all kindas of plastics?

Any home depot/menards/lowes has it. You may try a welding supply shop as well, for I LOVE to use it for tig welding (cleaning)

Careful though, as it is EXXXXXXXXXXXXTREMELY flammable, and it takes EVERYTHING off. Use it sparingly and experiment with dilutions.

It is a liquid that you can just put on a rag and use.

Oh yea. It will remove any stamp. Sometimes you can still see the stamp imbedded in the plastic (hence Hotstamp), but sometimes that's kinda cool imo.

You can buy acetone at any major hardware store. Look in the paint area, it is a paint thinner. Some fingernail polish remover is 100% acetone. Just don't breathe this shit in for too long. Seriously. I blew a pen up in my mom's dryer and had to remove it with acetone. I was high as F*&$ but it was no fun. Acetone huffing (intentional or not)=bad buzz/possible death.

I hate Innova's DX stamps and always remove them. I've found that acetone will make DX plastic super grippy for your thumb.

Your fingernail will do the job too, just not as efficiently as acetone.

acetone is a carcinogen and transfers into your system directly through the skin, lungs, etc.

So I've been a Buzzz thrower for quite a while now. I use a Z Buzzz for most straight to overstable mid shots, and 2 D Buzzzes (one broken in, one beat to hell) for straight to understable to roller midrange shots. I love my Z Buzzz, although it doesn't get used much, and my D Buzzzes are the most used discs in my bag apart from the Wizard. The Pro D plastic is terrible though and these things are just getting way too beat, way too quick. (I throw a lot of base plastic stuff and am used to breaking in discs, but bottomline Pro D sucks.) It's been about 5 weeks, and I already need to put in a new D Buzzz with the two beat ones.

Well, in a tournament a while back I won a DX Coyote. I never threw it, but just found it stashed away today and thought I'd give it a try. It flies A LOT like a new D Buzzz, but is actually a bit longer, with more glide and just as much control. I like the feel of the rim and the grip better, and the new DX plastic is far superior to Pro D plastic. So I'm going to try this sucker out. As much as I like Buzzzes, this disc just feels so good. I just ordered another DX Coyote (as a backup/go in the bag when the other one starts getting beat) and a Star Coyote (to see how the different plastic flies).

On a sidenote, my mixed bag is slowly becoming more and more Innova as I've been finding discs that are just plain better. I try as much stuff as I can, but I find myself liking many molds and plastics that Innova makes better than their counterparts. The Wizard ain't going nowhere though, I can say that...

I've been writing friggin' novels on here lately, I apologize.

Well.... this kid from Kansas was a Discraft thrower and he stomped the field at the Carrollton Open this last weekend. He beat Barry Shultz who was second.

This kid shot the course record at one course (-13) BOTH DAYS in the worst conditions you could imagine. It was raining and muddy, awful.

Well done sir. Very impressive.

I remember when you could not GIVE AWAY Callaway golf clubs. they were a joke. Now they are the biggest, most successful golf compnay on the planet. All it took was one good driver design , the Big Bertha.

I have a mixed bag. Innova, Millenium, Discraft, and even Gateway. Whatever floats my boat.
