So, what is the flight rating on that disc?

My wife throws the Medusa pretty often from the tee. It is the first disc that she has been able to consistently get to turn and flex back. It has great glide, the plastic is very rubbery and sticky, and a tad floppy.

So I'm sitting here holding a new Medusa and L13. The Medusa and L13 both have the same rim width/depth (not a very wide rim, more like a Valk width) and the same top. The sole difference is that the L13 is more deeply scalloped under the outside of the rim, it looks kind of like the Cyclone nose (except for the Cyclone's steep ascent to the inner rim). This intrigues me greatly.

I'm going to test fly both of these shortly, and report the results back here.

OK, so the L13 is more understable than the Medusa. It always hyzers back at the very very end of it's flight, but extremely easy to turn over at higher speeds. I had some very interesting flights out of it, almost W-shaped starting from steep hyzer. These discs are kind of strange for power throwers, I would not recommend it for them unless for shaping understable shots that hyzer out at the end. But, for low power throwers, both the Medusa and L13 are great discs for learning how to turn a disc over, manipulate nose angles, and work different lines. I think it is especially great for ladies who aren't big arms, as a backhand finesse driver. It will, of course, reward lower power throwers for getting the nose down. It makes a great S-flight for people throwing ~200'-250'.

Pick up a chainzilla this weekend love it very grippy sticks where it lands I would give it a 3/4/-1/2 on the innova scale. It turns when thrown hard but like to fight back late in the flight.

Also got a L13. TMZ review is very accurate. Great turn over disc for people who throw 300' with fairway drivers.

The plastic is amazingly grippy in cold weather as well.

I have not heard anything about them in a long time. Whether that are still around probably depends on what kind of venture it is/was. If it was how somebody planned on putting food on the table, they are probably gone by now. If it's a side gig, they might still be out there.
