The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I, like most people around, have an Innova Boss. incredible disc, farthest in my bag...in the wind. head wind, tail wind, cross winds... but a few times i threw it it just hyzered out way too early! i mean, about 200-250'. i've consistently hit or been pushing 400' with it. i figured, i just put it out there wrong. but it happened more than once...at least 4 times now. i finally realized the difference between the good throws and the bad. THERE WASN'T ANY WIND!!! Usually that would help out my throws. But it only hurt the Boss.
Anybody else have trouble with the Boss in wind/no wind? Is it just a coincidence that I keep screwing up on calm days?

I almost gave up on mine but continued to throw it and found it cant hold a line in a head wind at all it's not stable enough and will turn over .I found if you throw it in a tailwind it sails forever ,I hit 425' on flat ground yesterday for the first time when i usually end up at about 375'
echo...Boss + wind = flip /cry; Xcaliber + wind FTW!!
I have found it works great in no wind or tailwind......head winds is Xcaliber time!!!
echo what todd and peter said. Xcal time!!

Ive found my boss isnt as flippy as some others out there, it just requires more attention to release angle than some.
it's just not as forgiving for me . but if I throw it right into not TOOO much of a headwind mine flies great.
but too much headwind and I'll grab the xcal, or even no wind and I just want to spike hyzer or take no chances on it going right.

I think it's just a coincidence. or maybe you have already "broke it in" ?

in no wind mine always goes hyzer unless I tell it not to :)
It also depends on the run of the Boss too. The Protos are super stable (no stamps), the USMasters Stamp (true first runs) are super flippy, the First Run (Star Stamps) are flippy to super flippy, the Feldberg ones are less stable than the Protos, but significantly more stable than the First Runs (or CFRs). Currently, I have the most stable Feldberg Boss in the bag, I wouldn't consider throwing any First Run in the wind EVER. (All of my Bosses have slight use to date - nothing beat up yet...)
Boss - without me. I just dont like the disc and its characteristics. The different colors seem to behave different and I decided I am staying with my Teerex's and destroyers.
I am disappointed at the appartent inconsistency between runs of the boss. Mine can handle a moderate headwind because it is pretty overstable, but I wanted one of the more flippy ones that would fly similar to a long wraith. I still use the destroyer for calm conditions going for max d because my boss is so stable.
I dont mind the Boss i use it for BIG s curve drives with wind or no wind. I had two One was beat up and one was like new i prefered the beat up one but being a good sport i left it on the course after a drive for someone else to find :(
