I am rather intrigued by this disc. 11/6/-5/1. I am trying to figure out what you would want a -5 for. Would you say it throws like a beat in roadrunner then? I've never thrown a Monarch, so I don't know how that compares. I have had the same roadrunner in my bag for probably 6 years, and it is rather beat in, so much so, that there are few lines I can put it on.

After reading Ray had some 150s, I asked the Innova East distribution manager the same thing and he said the 150s were only made for Hero.

I threw an orange 175 Mamba some today. I was at a fairly short course, so I didn't get too many chances for max D throws...However, I don't think this disc is best thrown hard anyway. It is like the Sidewinder's faster, slightly less stable cousin. It has quite a bit of high speed turn, but it also had a good amount of fade unless thrown pretty far. The glide was pretty impressive. Another thing I liked was the shorter wing width...It feels less bulky in the hand than a Wraith imo.

The Mamba is interesting enough to make me want to throw it some more. I especially want to try some rollers and distance annies.

I took my Mamba to the field tonight...I was really feeling it with my release angles and it was flying beautifully, even into a mild headwind. It really reminds me of a faster version of a FR Sidewinder. Initially it is seeming like a really natural pairing with my Swords, as they are so straight and the Mamba is esstastic. Kudos Innova for making a disc that outperforms it's rim width in both speed and glide...So far I'm liking the Mamba more than I've liked any of the other flippy discs in it's speed class (flppy Kings, Havoc). It is also a fast speed 11.

We only got a few colors at CDGS, and the PLHs are pretty consistent. I'm going to grab a lighter one to test tomorrow.

I had already planned on trying this disc out but after your initial review it sounds like it might be what I want it to be.

I'm starting to get my release angles down better with my Mamba and I'm liking how it's flying. It is really easy to throw high and left and watch it fall left to right across the sky. It gets really big D when you hit the line right. It also hyzer flips really well, and seems to fade pretty predictably if not overpowered. This is by far the fastest truly understable disc I've found that has some predictability. I don't like the way it feels too much(it's quite shallow), but I can manage it. I do love the glide that the huge dome seems to provide, and I like that the rim width is a few mms short of max.

I'm throwing a 148 Blizzard Katana right now for max D and big turnovers. This sounds very similiar in flight, but i'll assume it has less fade and is less nose-angle sensitive. Any chance you can compare the two?

Like you, I'm deeply infatuated with the BlizKat. I'm throwing a 169 Champ Mamba and it's turning way more than the Kat and has similar glide. If you misplay the hyzer angle for the Mamba it turns into a roller real quick. But out of the box, I'm getting straight hyzer flips with little fade and easy, glidey righthand turns similar to my seasoned Champ Sidewinder but a lot longer. Haven't thrown it in any notable wind yet, but I don't think it's real similar to the BlizKats.

sneaky long, this disc is easy distace.


This is what the monarch could have been with out the nose angle sensativity. easy to turn over great for hyzer flips and glidy. is nicely complementing my surge. the glide is where this disc shines.

this is my favorite disc of the last year. this disc is what the monarch should have been. a faster glider RR. wraith speed, RR line, and river glide

I bought a 166g Mamba a couple weeks back and this thing is fun to throw. I only break it out in a tailwind and still have to start it out with steep initial hyzer to insure that it doesn't go all the way over and not come back at all. It's fun to throw, it goes with little effort and I will go pick up a max weight soon.
