So what's the verdict on these? I just picked a few up to test out and support the Selinki masters but haven't had a chance to throw them.

I guess Innova finally realized that they can't design new mids with new names and sell them.

They're three times better than the originals!

No shit. It's like they're jumping from "A New Hope" right to "The Return of the Jedi" and totally skipping over "The Empire Strikes Back". What the hell, man...?

I haven't thrown one yet but schwebby is talking them up pretty hard. He says that they fly like a slightly faster 7/10 champion shark. Based on talking to him, I'm thinking medium level of hss and a low level of lss. All compared to a new champion shark. I also didn't know these were available, so I'll have to order a couple and try them out

So yeah these have a bit of beef to them. I haven't thrown a new normal champ shark in forever but these are about as stable as a new C-MD2 for me.

A friend sent me this the other week of some old stuff. This made me think the reasoning for Roc3 was because the Classic Roc was technically Roc 1 and then the Ontario/SM/Rancho/Roc+/etc were all variations on the Roc2 so to speak. Now that everything is coming out as a disc3 I have no idea...

Is that a gummy C MD2 or a domier harder C MD2? If the flight is that of the former immagonnahafta try this because i've not seen flat C MD2s and people praise them.
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.

It is of the gummy one. This thing really likes to fly a long way with a slight anny release. It comes out of it really slowly and glides forward really well while doing so. So if you like throwing S shots with mids, you should check this out.

It does not do power hyzers very well for me though. It likes to flatten too much or stay on a too-steep angle. I couldn't get it to hold a good power hyzer line. It does do pretty well thrown flat as it will slightly S before fading out pretty hard.

I'm getting excited to try one of these.I was hoping to get one while I was at innova east picking up my clubs order today but they had only cleared space for them but weren't expect them to arrive for another week or so
