im guessing this means it will be great for the vast majority of us (380/400 or so of power)


I seem to recall that MDR said he could bomb the Inferno, when everyone else said it was too flippy to be useful. If its too squirelly for him, it may not be any good to the weaker throwers either.

Don't listen to MDR. Most of the time he's just talking nonsense.

Can you compare the HSS and LSS to a Boss thrown on the same line?



It flew a lot like the first run champ Bosses. But who knows how the production run is going to come out.

I can bomb the Inferno...just not on the course. That's why I said it sucked as a golf disc, and not it just sucked all around. I think it would be a good bomber disc, but nothing useful on the course...at least for me.

lol @ rim configuration as a concept.


groove is by far flippier depending on the plastic of the boss in question

Every groove is a unique snowflake of suck. Each one could be flippier or more stable than any other driver out there. There is also no way to know since each throw with them is also unreproducible because of the nose angle sensitivity of said suck snowflake.

well it looks like they tweaked the Nuke to make it a bit more overstable...so it might not be crappy after all

So true. What a P.O.S. If that disc was any good Innova wouldn't be releasing the Katana right now.

Nothing real solid, but discraft made a facebook post about the nuke last week. Something along the lines of "the nuke will be blowing up the shelves soon"
