Daredevil Discs

Postby JHBlader86 » Thu Nov 27, 2008 6:31 pm

Has anyone had any experience with this companies discs? I am wanting to try some out to fulfill my curiousity but would like some feedback from anyone on here who has thrown their products.

yep I throw the full array: timberwolf, Wolverine, Swift Fox, woodchuck, and Beaver.

Love em all, they have replaced all my other discs as my most reliable flyers. Swift Fox is a must have, and the Timberwolf. Woodchuck is a solid flyer as well. I have a few posts around here about them if you do a search.

Big Timberwolf fan. A slightly less stable Eagle X, grips well in any weather incl todays 30deg snow, wears like an anvil, dies gracefully when hitting a tree instaead of careening way off into wherever. I had to get a backup of the same weight/plastic run...

If you like disc minimalism seeing you like a Wizard a Timberwolf can turn left and right or go straight so you could well do with only those two when wind is not an issue and something for max D. A wind disc on top of that for overhands and forehands and overstable pig role and you'd be set. Provided your max D disc could take the moderately overstable role where the Timberwolf is too straight.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Any experience with the mids? Grizzly, moose and caribou.

What about the swift fox. What's this disc like?

I kept encountering daredevil discs at shops this summer (I'm Canadian) and had no idea what they were all about. Now I want to try them out and support a Canadian company. I feel embarrassed just discovering that there is a Canadian company making well-regarded discs.

Often found in the bag as well: ZXS (thumbers), S-TD, QOLF instead of S-PD, Flow (still trying it out)

And how do the putters compare to each other? From Daredevil's site, it looks like they are all made from the same mold, but with different plastics.

Wolverine is a great teebird substitute.

Timberwolf is more like a... beast maybe? Its got a lot of range potential (so does the wolverine) and it can be pretty high speed understable and the fade is pretty late in its flight. My oldest Timberwolf is fairly beat in and I use it for a good hyzer flip. A pretty BIG hyzer flip at that too.

The only mid they have on the market right now is the Caribou and i've never thrown it.

From my own experience, use their flight lines but subtract some stability from them.

Moose: http://www.daredevildiscs.com/moose.html
Grizzly: http://www.daredevildiscs.com/grizzly.html

Based on your stability correction, the moose should be a straight mid and the grizzly slightly stable. Got to try me some of that action!

Yeah, that's where I expect them to be whenever they hit the market. Hopefully Hoey will comment in here on the possible release dates of these, I heard him saying something about it the last time I was down at marshall st.

I'll post up some pics of my oldest timberwolf when i'm not being lazy so you guys can see how little damage these suckers show after heavy use.

I could not find the moose or the grizzly online. To purchase discs from daredevils online store they are not an option either. Did they discontinue those two. The timberwolf sounds good though.

So far as I have ever seen they were never released.

edit: Wow. That was almost in English.

There is a rumor I can neither confirm or deny that the Wolverine, Timberwolf and Swift Fox are all the same mold in different plastics a la the old Gateway trick of calling a Wizard in H a Chief and passing it off as a different disc. That they measure differently is a result of how the different plastics cool, but supposedly it is the same mold. The Beaver, Polar Bear and Woodchuck are also supposed to be the same mold. Using this logic, the as of now unreleased Moose and Grizzly would simply be a Caribou in different plastic.

You just blew my mind. Like, seriously.

I'm going to inspect them for similarities when I get home.
