Would that be like a roadrunner on steroids?

supposed to be a speed 13/14 teebird with not much glide. being released in r-pro plastic in light weights that float up to 169-170.

wind penetrator, possibly good overhand disc.

imo, don't see how this could be faster than the boss with its high profile. this will help fight wind, but dave from innova says that this won't go farther downwind than the katana. boss is the staple for a stable to overstable highspeed driver; this seems superfluous
Wahoo? Really? That name just sucks. Why not the Scorcher, the Bomber or something cool. Wahoo from Yahoo. Only the best yahoos throw Wahoos. How about the Gremlin or Pacer?
Yeah, that's a pretty lame name. I hope that's not really what they named it....
Perhaps Yeahoos will throw Wahoos further..That's what it should of been named"Further"
According to my son "Further" is the name of the band with the still living Greatfull Dead members. So the name "Further" would appeal to the Dead Heads.
Personally, I think Innova should stick with the Mythoogical creatures for names. Centaur, Demon, Djinn, Manacore, and Ogre are all available.
We are everywhere
Yes,but we throw discs away from us,not towards.
Ohhhhhh ok. So stingray, shark, mako, dolphin, wahoo. What's next tuna, blowfish, bass, whale.....

From The Horse Himself:

I was concurrently working on a different driver which has been submitted and is called the Wahoo. Flight numbers are expected to be 12, 6, -2, 2. This is a float in water long range driver in R-Pro and weighing about 169gms.

After finishing the Wahoo, I went back to designing a high speed, low weight driver similar to the Katana, but at lower weights, and with more high speed turn. This disc won't be ready for release until next year.

Scorcher is already taken by Quest AT, although I do not believe they make the disc any more yuo can still get em.

But yeah that is a lame name.
Why not give it a Boat name as it's a floating Disc, Titanic ... of a fish name... anything is better then the sound a 12 year old boy makes when a girl says yes I'll go to the movies with you!
