I was told to expect these to be Blizzard. Guess Innova was able to mold them down to ~145g w/o Blizzardizing.

Not warp-speed fast, but very speedy. Flippy, but not much (any) more so than a Roadrunner. When gotten on a nice hyzer-flip to flat or slightly turned over line, it stays there & there is basically zero lo-speed fade. Kinda like if a Roadrunner & a Monarch had a baby. I'm not one for understable rollers, but I got a couple of HUGE flat-release accidental rollers before I dialed up how much hyzer was necessary to make this thing fly right. I only threw 'em about 25 times, so much more research is necessary.

A wahoo is a scombrid fish found worldwide in tropical and subtropical seas. It is best known to sports fishermen, as its speed and high-quality flesh make it a prize game fish.

A mamba is a highly venomous, fast-moving land-dwelling reptile of Africa, belonging to the family which includes cobras, coral snakes, taipans, brown snakes, tiger snakes, death adders, and krait. Mambas are feared throughout their ranges in Africa.

Sorry, I've never thrown a Wahoo, though I ingested a delicious blackened one at Etheridge Seafood House in Kill Devil Hills, NC, back in '87.

The description ive read about the mamba is that its got a lot of dome and very little on the bottom half, this sounds like the wahoo to me. Except slower. Ill prolly still try one for rollers and big annys, i do love my RR so i bet i can find a use for this disc

My Mambas are nowhere near as domey as Blizzard anything. Gummy Champion plastic, in my experience, sets up much flatter (sometimes concave, even) than its stiff cousin.

gummy Champ = flatter than stiff Champ (including Blizzard)

I would not classify the Mambas I have thrown as "got a lot of dome".

are these going to be ran regularly in 150 class or was that a special deluxe one of a kind run? a 150 class might be fun to throw in certain instances.
