I might consider buying one of these discs if the stamp didn't make them look like they came out of a cereal box.

You just blew my mind. Like, seriously.

I'm going to inspect them for similarities when I get home.
I'd like to know as well. A bead or notch or something obvious that could not be accounted for with a plastic change would put the rumor to bed. One being slightly smaller or domier could juat be the result of how different plastic cool.

I know the Swift Fox is the same mold as one of them, I think the Timberwolf, its just molded at 140 or so grams.

According to the website, they are all the same mold in each class.

And the first run Woodchucks were the floppiest putters I've ever held. :shock:

The beaver stamp is pretty funny now that I look at it closeley: Image

He's holding a disc and there's a basket way off in the distance. They hid a basket on about half of the other discs, but I wish they had the moose chewing on a disc.

Kangfirm'd on the same mold for each class (drivers, approach, putters). That's pretty sly.

I just held a Woodchuck at the store tonight and was amazed at how floppy that thing was. I pondered picking it up, but really had no need for it, other than I thought it was cool and I liked the color. I liked the feel of it better than the Blowfly's. Man that thing was floppy. I think you'd have a hard time even holding it in the summer time heat.

I've always been interested in Daredevil's stuff. Mostly the Polar Bear - I would want to feel them all before I bought them though.

Similar in feel to gummy Q, but they vary. Wolverine is stiffer than TWolf, Beaver is a bit softer. Only ones I've had my hands on (all 3 in the same shop yesterday). Beaver is like a gummy Wiz/Chal flight.

TWolf is a good heavy woods fairway driver and cold weather disc.
Otherwise I'll throw black before I throw effin green...

What's the Woodchuck like stability-wise?
