Pro JK Valkyrie

Pro JK Valkyrie
What's the deal with this disc. I recently found one, and the guy who previously owned it just told me to keep it as he doesn't throw Innova Discs anymore.
How does this disc compare to a DX Valk, or Champion Valk?

personally, i find my JK valk(which i don't throw anymore), alot more stable than a champ or dx valk. its really weird, it was hard for me to turn that disc over.

JK valk

Yeah, I got the same impressions from this disc (assuming you mean the champion clear plastic). I have a few of these and they do seem to fly more stable than other valks, including champions. They also have no dome and are very flat topped. Good disc though. Sort of like a viking or old beast.

brand new JK (4x or early 5x) were incredibly stable. Imagine throwing with 360' of power and 5 degrees hyzer; this thing would flatten and maybe turn over a hair before hyzering back. I love JK Pro Valks, they also fly very very similar to CE Valks especially once broken in.

Awesome, can't wait to throw this one, it's slightly beat in and a little gummy :)

All the translucent JK Valks(4x and early 5x) I have and have seen are the firm CE/champ plastic, unless the one you have is lighter, those seem to be super gummy.

The few I have seem to be regular clear champion plastic. Nothing really special about them other than the fact that they fly like beasts. I have seen a few super gummy valks, but they are all current run 150g's.

Out of all Flat top JK Valks I've seen, never seen a regular champion plastic. If the JK Valk isn't a flat top (if it's a flat top you'll know...) then take all previous information from me and ignore it.
