Anyone heard of this disc? I'm afraid to post sometimes as players sometimes act silly about discs. I fell for the whole devil hawk thing.

According to Dave on pdga.com

The Goblin is basically a small diameter Aero, straighter flying than a spider and has more carry.

Im wondering why innova is coming out with these slower floaty midranges lately (coyote for example). They are great approach discs, but with people throwing challengers, bangers and of course wizards as far and accuate as they are when do you need a midrange that is similar to a putter for that range?

i would say the buzzz is a bit quicker than theyre making the goblin out to be, the goblin is supposed to be alittle bit faster than a putter.

Mabey innova wants to release a wizard like disc (since people like them for driving) and they just arent wanting to call it a putter.

Rumor is Innova has made a disc that is like a Wizard and is in testing. That's what is all over the pdga boards anyway.

i feel like the aero and juju... and other floaty putter/slow midrange discs fly awsome, BUT wouldn't i rather just use my putter for everything at that range? i do not need something between a midrange and a putter... and i'm already glued to the roc and wizard, so no thanks innover.

i think all the companies are just coming out with a wide aray of discs. seeing what people like, through sales probably, and then making more discs like those.

the problem is that companies have had discs that are great, and there are many people who would love them to keep around get discontinued.

THEN something new comes out thats not necessarily better, but everyone buys one or three to see. And sadly often are convinced that the new disc is better, wether it fits them or now.

The problem Im trying to adress is that whatever new, no matter how good or poor of a disc is going to get alot in sales. Meanwhile a disc that is already a classic flies great. (and dont mention companies changing molds completely...)

I just wish that Innova would stop coming out with more midranges and jsut release the Roc in Champ Plastic damn it. non fundraiser champ roc for 14.99 at the local shop would rock!

i think the companies need to start trying to get real feedback on discs from all their customers not just the sponsered players. i think they would find that all the discs they keep coming out with have great intial sales people see that their old disc is still better. but then the typical response you get from most people is "this disc sux" so i can see were trying to get customer feed back wouldn't work out well.

A rec player wont be able to tell any difference between a orc and a viking , a pro would. 98%(somewhere around there if it's not right) of the customer base of those disc golf companies are recreational. There's enough discs out there that are fashioned for the rec/low power player to have a full setup for a round.

I couldn't care less whether or not disc companies made less, more or different discs. It wouldn't bug me, sure I have preferances but if given a Squall, a Arrow and a Tsunami and I would be able to have them work for me within a week or 2. Speaking of which, I tried a Whamm-o Arrow and Sharp Shooter #3, and those discs work better than anything else ive seen for 2 finger control rollers and trick shots...
