Yes it is, just one of the many different blends of R-Pro, ranging from the pretty tough and (IIRC) stiff Hydra blend, to the floppy putter blends that are totally indestructible, stiffish' and regular Pro durability mid-range blends (First Run P-MD2 <3) all the way to the crappy crap crap driver blends.Crosseyed0811 wrote:(which this is the ONLY disc I will tolerate in R-Pro, cause lets face it, this isn't REALLY R-Pro)

I've thrown an R-Pro Hydra some time ago, and I seem to recall it was pretty scuffed but still very much stable.Crosseyed0811 wrote:jubuttib wrote: the pretty tough and (IIRC) stiff Hydra blend
Yes its pretty stiff. I just haven't felt any other R-Pro that feels the way this one does, much like I'd never felt any DX that felt the way the old DX Hydras felt. That was the reason for my comment.
But yeah I've not hit anything with it, probably because I learned to treat my DX Hydra's with respect or else they developed those really nasty "teeth". But I don't think I've seen anything put so much as a scratch on this thing, and I just can't imagine them breaking in or how they would break in.
Depends, an R-Pro Boss will be beat to death after two-three rounds, while I've yet to beat a first run P-MD2 to flippy (I've managed understable though) with a season+ of use, and my P-P1 (R-Pro Aviar) is totally indestructible. So yeah.Hoping someone has had an R-Pro long enough to beat it out of some of its stability and let me know how they wear in

He's not the best player I've seen and hits a lot of trees and the brick hard hydra never changed except for the skuff marks. I play ultimate and am still really new to disc golf but I recall it felt great in my FH grip but it didn't fly far or come off very clean for me with my 15 tries playing catch with him. He recently told me how he well it floats too when he left it floating in the middle of the lake at Johnson Road Park just outside of Memphis. I'd think a year or so of setting in the sun and floating in the water might loosen it up a bit.
Have you checked out the R-pro Pig. Think I'll be getting one of these for short ups and drives and I really like how it flicks.
