155 Boss is the best Blizzard i've thrown for regular golf throws. At least based on rear winds only today. The weight difference to Pro 168 makes the Bliz fly so much faster that even in rear wind it fades later and less than the Pro 168 in calm conditions. Even though with flash the 155 Boss is too much of a disc for me released flat for best D and boy does it go far for little effort. S-curves did add D and the fade so much less than my Legenda that i think i will have a good time with this baby. I really really wanna see how this disc fares in no wind conditions and after the flash is gone. Bombtastic for under full power means control while having great D and not tiring out fast for better longer event endurance and hopefully results. If that materializes like i think it will this disc will get to the bag and i think a 150 Bliz Boss will get voted by my wallet too :-)
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Have to say that the 139g Blizzard Boss worked fantastically in Oulu, definitely gave me some extra distance. Too bad the wind died down every time I stepped onto the tee (at least if it would have been a tailwind), and kicked up whenever I got near the basket. =P

I have a 138 Blizzard Boss and I was really liking the easy distance. It was easy to flip over but always liked to hook up, come back and make a full flight. Its easy to throw 400+ on a consistent basis, where my star and pro destroyers are averaging around 385 and sometimes getting to 400+ when i get it just right. The disc is already beating up fast and getting flippy though. Today the disc was flipping out so hard out of a slight hyzer and not coming back. My green 168 metal flake mn majestic katana was much more useful for max d and seems to be more predictable overall. It seems like I am going to need to rotate these discs as often as pro destroyers. The Blizzard Bosses will stay in the bag for raw wide open D and big high annys. Thinking of another one around 138 and a heavier one.

I have found that weights around 150 are more controllable. I have fairly weak arm( I throw Archons mostly) and the 150 teedevil is money. I have a star one that is a little much but the blizzard bombs. And holds up.

How do the DD2's stack up to the Katanas? (same weight, etc.)

Innova has been all about distance in the last few years, so this is kind of like their piéce de résistance.

Innova itself has been focusing on distance in recent years yes, but they've done fan-fucking-tastic work with Discmania to produce some of the best mids, putters, and control drivers in the game too.

Im interested in the PD2/DD2, thats the combo I throw for D right now. The PD2 might be the right combo of light weight and overstability for some really big shots. Hoping they will be available somewhere other than the factory store (I'll never order from there again, they fucked up two of my orders badly and it doesn't cost 10 bucks to ship a couple discs to CT.).

I got a couple of field throws with the blizzard pd2 this weekend and for me they turned over more and had better glide than the blizzard boss that is in my bag. These were easy to get to flip on a hard throw and with enough height they really bombed for me. I want to get some throws in with some wind to really see how far these will go though.

If I needed huge field bombs in NC I would bag these but they are still fun to throw. The ones I threw were yellow 150g x-out from the factory store.

Got a few blizzard discs in yesterday. It was league night so I didn't get a lot of throws in with them, but after my first throw with the 143 Wraith I couldn't resist throwing it again a couple times in the round as well. My very first throw with it netted me a bird on a hole I'd never reached before. Duplicated the shot again during the round but missed my putt.

Only one toss with the 132 PD2 I got and it was..... interesting. Same hole as the wraith shot above with a tail wind. So I throw it with a bit of anny and the thing rockets out, flips right over and rolls a mile. :? Won't base anything off of that throw though. I'll hopefully get out into a field and play around with them some more soon.
