Snow in Rancho Cucamonga? (Innova Blizzard Technology)

It seems Innova has found a way to make lighter Champion plastic...Interesting that they are marketing this as "Blizzard Technology". Innova hasn't really marketed in this manner before. Anyway, it looks like they got some kind of light weight granules or something(air bubbles?) in the plastic to make it weigh less.

Are those bubbles? Didn't they release some bubble rim bosses last year?

Looks like somebody forgot to let the tray cool completely before cutting up a few fat rails on it…

Hmm, the starlite star bosses were pretty stable so I wonder how these are. If they aren't ridiculously overstable I could see them being pretty nice distance drivers

If they can manage the same shape (PLH and all) I'd try to get a bag of them around 100g. =)

I'd throw some ultra-light destroyers. I have one of the japan open champ destroyers at 157 and can throw it a long way pretty easily. It would be nice to be able to get a couple of them.

I have one 150g specimen of each (Wraith, TeeDevil, Boss, Katana) on their way. Will report soon…

I already throw 150g R-Pro Boss & Katana with success. These can't be flippier than those.

Funny you say; I've got a 98g DX Monster, but have only thrown it two or three times, and only then for insane MTAs.

The weight itself doesn't usually make them less stable, it's the fact that lighter discs tend to have a lower PLH (exceptions exist like the Starlites). If they've managed to get the PLH to stay the same while making the disc lighter with this technique, it should be just as stable, just more touchy with regard to OAT etc.

I hope these arent like the old bubble bosses, those things were overstable to the point of uselessness
