Ive been following these alittle on the pdga fourm and on their site, I definately want to try one, theyre supposed to be floaty and fly like a lid. Meaning if youre 100' out and you want to go for it but dont want to risk a fly by, this is a good disc. I also see it being great for all the ultimate guys why want some super accurate approaches.

Disc junkies like some of us will try them for sure. I'm actually having more and more trouble overthrowing a hole.

Before you get to excited, I should explain that on my local course, most holes are about 200 ft.

Some Questions

Where and when will these be availible out of curiousity?

What plastic do you think this most closely compares to?

Any idea of average retail price?

I know this is a different mold than anything out there, but any references to which disc(s) have similar flight charactaristics and/or attributes?

Thanks.

I'm glad you guys are as amped as we are! The Whitler is due for release may 1. We have been in contact with a number of dealers in hopes of getting our product to as many of you out there as are interested. If there are dealers we have not contacted we can be reached at: info@snapdiscsports.ca.
To answer the latest questions, in all honesty I really don't know what to compare the debut plastic (aka. "A-S2") to. In terms of durability it is comaprable to champion or Z plastic. It has better, but similar grip to pro, x, or gateway's H, but bares a memory (or elasticity) far more extreme. Glen Whitlock (the guy/tour-ist we worked with on this disc) calls the reaction of the Whitler to impact "Tremble Technology" because the disc has such an immediate reaction to impact and absorbs the energy readily. The end result is that the disc is better absorbed by the chains! It's actually quite an amazing thing.
As for a retail price, it will fall in the premium (i.e. champ or Z) range.
The flight characteristics are easy to describe. This is the most accurate disc within 100ish feet. The Whitler flys true on any edge. It can hold a absolutely straight line without any fade. We (the partners in Snap) all loved the Skystreak, but found it didn't stay in the chains that well. This disc flys a little like a beat skystreak, except quite a bit slower and with much better chain reaction.
Keep the questions coming...

The first run will be available in weights ranging from roughly 160-175. We do plan on doing glow, but not in the first run. Our legal max. weight limit is 187.6 grams, which we will be reaching with subsequent runs (likely released later this year). This said, we strongly believe that the 165ish weight is the best for Touch shots and wanted the first release to fall in this class with our remarkable A.S2 polymer.

Now that this disc has been out for a while, I was interested in hearing some reviews of the disc and plastic.

Any comments?!?

I have been throwing one off and on since they have been released. Im new to this kind of disc but I think its great for tecnical couses with or alot of elevation changes. The plastic feels good its just differernt than other plastics, I cant tell a difference between my black and white. I uses it for long puts and short aproaches. I found you have to remember to throw it right and not put too much arm into it. I also had no probles ordering the dvd, it came within a few weeks from Canada.
