Rival and Patriot fairway drivers from Legacy

MVP AMP (fairway driver?)

http://www.pdga.com/announcements/amp-the-current-mvp

Innova Tern high speed less than stable driver

http://www.pdga.com/announcements/one-g ... es-another

some of these have been discussed at length (Amp) and some have gone unheard of (Tern). So if anyone is out there let's discuss.

I wonder how long before someone calls it a Terd.

12:42 pm on Tuesday December the fourth.

I'm interested in the Patriot just because that's a spot in my bag I've always had trouble keeping filled. I've been impressed with all the Legacy stuff I've seen or thrown but it's going to be tough to get people off of Teebirds, Leopards, Rocs and Magnets.

Are Magnets that popular? I don't really see a lot of them around here, but then I'm not looking too hard at what's in other people's bags. I like the Magnet a lot, but I don't really throw it anymore. I think the Patriot and Amp will get more of a look from me as well. Although I have fallen in love with the Leopard lately (not you ZAM, okay yes you too, just a little bit). the disc market is getting really crowded.

Is the Tern just a Wahoo that does not float?

They do advertise the same numbers for both discs. You may well be right. Who knows. How did the Wahoo fly anyway? I didn't pay much attention to it.

Never seen one in real life. My area has very limited discs I can buy even though I do have two sources for Innova. I have no busines even touching a 12 speed disc anyway.

No they aren't, I was just saying if your more or less making a clone of a disc how do you convince people to switch from the Magnet to the Clutch. Drivers are always going to get more attention anyway, it's funny how Innova can kill a disc by giving it a stupid name.

Eh I used to be all gung ho about discing down and having a minimal bag, then one day I looked down and all 12 discs in my little bag were different molds and all of them fairly different in size and shape and duty. I've pretty much capitulated on my competitive career now that I am a father. I know some guys would say I could still compete but it doesn't really drive me. I just like being outside and throwing discs.

So yeah why not try a faster disc. You may throw it and realize all that hard work and practice you did on your form payed off. The fast drivers have their place. If you have fun throwing them then you have a place for them in your bag.

@chainsmoker: I see your point. the Clutch may be an easier sell since the Magnet is not as popular.

Move on there's nothing to see. Now especially that sub 140 Blizzards float. Wahoos break in fastfastfast to fliiiiiiippppyyy.
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.

Yeah with the advent of Blizzard I was sure Innova was going to OoP a few molds. I guess they can't justify it just yet.

Brainfart EDIT: I wonder if they ever made a Blizzard Groove. I almost can imagine it being awesome. almost...

The Tern is now on the InFlight Guide. They have it slightly different than the Wahoo. 9' longer and 5% less LSF.
