The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
One of the things I LOVE and HATE about Innova is ALL the dang selection the make that are so close together in Flight Ratings! The New Innova Krait is between a Wraith 11/5/-1/3 and an Archon 11/5/-2/2.... The initial Ratings on the Krait are 11/5/-1/2....
Give me a month and I'll have a Krait or 3....
I think its silly really, after they get beat up a little they will fly very similiarly. I decided a while ago that Im not going to keep on buying all the new discs, with a few exceptions here and there. I buy three of my favorite molds and beat them up accordingly. I decided to stick with what works..........JMO.
Rock it out, Ive bought enough discs to supply 100 newbies but now its narrowed down to select molds!
I like the Krait, it has its own top on it, nice medium dome. The Archon seems to be a Wraith with a Vulcan top on it, it was hit and miss for me. The Wraith has always been a good disc, but needed a little seasoning out of the box to be right where I like it.
When we threw the Krait, it felt like a seasoned Wraith from the first throw. It was very familiar, no surprises, maybe a little more glide because it wasn't fighting as hard to fade. I don't know what it will be like once it beats in, but outta the box it was great. I suppose if I was at a tournay and needed to replace a lost Wraith, buying a Krait would net the same results without the beat in period or having to compensate for the initial stability.
I don't have your arm Dook, but I am DIGGIN' on the Archon right Now. Mine are still brand new with only a round or two on them, but they are flying well for me. :) If the Krait is like a well seasoned Wraith, I maay have to try one Me-Self. Thanks for the info. :)
I have always liked my Wraiths. I find the Lat-64 Flow to be somewhat similar also. I will have to go out a buy a Krait, although I really don't like the name.
The Wraith, regardless of which plastic, has always seemed So Much more stable than a Flow, to me. I never understood it. A Flow, whether GL or Opto, I could turn over right out of the box. A Wraith is always a Meat hook, in comparison. I expected the Archon to be Closer to a Flow, but in my Opinion, the Archon is a bit more stable, right out of the rack....
Yes Innova releases way too many new discs that are all just slightly different. Marketing really. Gets you to buy a disc that really isn't much different just because it is something new. I'm not buying any new discs right now simply because I have no need for anything new. They should have called it Bungarus.
