The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So..I finally got my hands on a Boss. I threw someone else's a while ago and thought it matched the flight ratings (13,5,-1,3) pretty well, like a Wraith but faster and longer. Mine doesn't seem to fly very much like that at all, much more stable with less glide. Now I get my new "Flying Disc" magazine and notice that the ad for the Boss on the inside back cover says that its flight ratings are (13,4,0,4) which I think is a pretty big difference, less gilde and much more stable than the previous rating. Innova's site still has the old rating as well! This seems to be telling me that Innova is aware of inconsistencies in different runs/batches of the Boss and I'm kind of disappointed in Innova right now. Anyone else have a similar experience or notice this as well?

I noticed it on the magazine but really it doesn't matter theres so little difference between the xclaiber and boss and the destroyer
i love my boss....unfortunately i threw it into a 4' deep creek on an ace run at chickasaw park in alabama.
It's supposed to be a faster Wraith, but I beg to differ. I can flip a Wraith with ease and can't even get the Boss to twitch. Meaning my Wraiths can be turned over to the right where my Boss cannot. I would definitely believe the magazine rating for the disc I own. It is a Yellow Dave Feldberg Champion Boss, 173g.
I think there's defintiely a difference between the destroyer and xcalibur. I use (and love) my destroyer for max distance drives with a nice S-path, whereas the xcal I use for drives that I NEED to go left. My boss is yellow/green 175g and definitely seems more like the ad. ratings and the xcal than any wraith I've ever thrown. I wasn't trying to bash Innova but I wanted the more wraith-like boss.
I think I read somewhere on here that Dave Dunipace (one of the bigwigs at Innova) allegedly said that there were inconsistencies in the flight patterns on all the ultra-wide rimmed drivers, and that it is unavoidable?

Does anyone remember that discussion?
