The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I have two Innova Wolves, one I won and one I got as a birthday present. The wolf and the Shark are the only midranges that our local Dick’s Sporting Goods sells.
The wolf flies ok if thrown perfectly flat, if the nose is elevated at all it stalls fast and dives left if thrown nose down it flips right into the dirt. From the start I found it to be too flippy for my noodle arm. I get much better results from my Rocs and my Buzzz.
Does anyone like this disc? Should I keep them in my practice bag or am I just frustrating myself trying to get results with these discs?
No Wolf in my bag...but different discs work better for different people, somebody out there loves the wolf.
I am using XD's, Cobra's, Mako, & KC Pro Roc for midrange upshots and short hole drives. This covers every aspect of what I need...XD and Cobra go straight and turn over nicely when broken in. The Mako will do what you tell it and the KC Pro Roc for some over-stability and wind fighting ability. A Cobra can do everything a Buzzz will do, but a Buzzz can never duplicate what I can do with my Cobra! Get away from Dicks and drive over to Clearwater...over 40,000 discs on display in the store and I will go throw a round with you at the Champs Home Course...Cliff Stephens (21 holes) !
If Clearwater Disc Golf were a little closer I would be there in an instance. However Dick’s is 7 miles away and you are over 1450 miles away.
I would say frustrating yourself. I gave it a try (175 gram) because I like the thumbtrac, but it quickly turned over for me when thrown backhand. I drive overhand or forehand 98% of holes, only throwing backhand when I have no other choice because I have no power throwing backhand, maxing out at 260'/270'.
I gave it to my girlfriend and it worked for her. She liked it enough that I bought her a new lighter one. Her first throw with the new disc, she turned it over right, and it sailed to the next hole over and straight into the pond. Since then, she just walks with me when I play now.
I guess it may be useful if you can throw it hyzer and still get it to flip over gently without smashing into the ground (or pond), but if you have success with the Roc I would stick with that.
