Not a fan of the supa-ray. The flashing is way to sharp on the bottom rim and it won't hold turnovers very well. Going to skip it off the road some and report back later.

The flashing on the KC's are a crazy as well, I just put both hands on one and twist it back and forth in the carpet so the friction rubs the flashing off.** Rather do that than scrape it up on stone of sort..

**DO NOT do it very hard/at all with DX or other base plastic lol

The KC doesn't fade out much earlier and harder than the SS -somewhat of a surprise. The difference is enough in weaving through obstacles though. New ones with flash. Three rounds at Meilahti and the KC lost an inch of the flash. It peeled off like no other flash i've encountered.
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.

Just picked up a Super Ray. It had some very sharp flashing, and I removed it with sand paper. This is a very good feeling disc that fits nicely between my new roc and beat roc. It is stable, and fades nicely at the end. Different than the DX Stingray I threw for a while, but I think that it will be a great hyzer-flipper, with distance potential. It is long and holds some nice lines. Rocs are my bread and butter mids, but the stingray is a special disc that can fly low, high, fast and slow.

The Super Ray(once deflashed), is a very nice disc. Very straight with minimal fade out to about 300. When throwing out to 330, it holds a very nice left to right flight pattern all the way to the ground. The one thing that caught me off guard a little was it's speed...a little slower than I was expecting.

For those of you who play out at Ashe County Park in West Jeff, NC, you would've caught quite a spectacle Super Stingray performance from a good friend of mine.

Hole 1 pro pads 329, out drove it by about 20 ft
Hole 3 pro pads 398 over water, Stingray, 20ft putt.
Hole 17 pro pads 419 (about 70ft uphill as well huge hyzer) on the side of a mountain, Stingray, Stingray, 10ft putt.

I'm excited to get some and throw them, seems a lot like a beat MD2 but a little slower.

I just wanted to mention... that I'm thinking about letting the MD2s take a rest.

The Super Stinger / Roc combo is pretty dang sweet... reminds me a lot of the comet / roc combo of the past.

Where's the hype for these discs? Maybe there is an inversely proportional relationship between the quality/usefulness of an Innova mold to its hype/love?

Everyone is so wrapped up in getting blizzard technology to discs that already go to 150g that they're missing two of the best midranges Innova has ever released in my opinion!

There is always a price Mr. Kulp.

When are we going to play golf again together? Will you go pro already so that we can crush the 2nd card together?

How do these compare to a QMS?

Mountain dwelllers are gonna hate me for this but the SS is better than the QMS at sea level. I would imagine the QMS at altitude flies about the same as the SS does at sea level. The SS is a little more HSS but does turn at speed too. I haven't done a comparison now that my D has changed so i can't say for sure about relative distances. I think the SS is at least as long if not a little longer. Both glide well and do a small fade in the end.
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.

imo the qms has more turn and more fade. for me the ss like to go straight. If i turn over my qms it is going to come back he ss won't.
