My first impression of STAR STOCK KATANA  170 - 175  grams is that it is overstable and flies like a BOSS.  I have not broken them in yet but I sure hope they start to turn over like the first run STAR does............Tom McRann   PDGA #032

You must have missed my previous discussion addressing this very thing. I have a friend with a big arm and he loves the new disc. Hit some trees! I'm just working on really trying to power this new disc to get the most out of it. What's with Caplock?
There's a Star Katana? ;)~
I didn't much care for the "farting lemon" Star. So I'll stick with the Champ ones.
It's that orange thingy I was tossing into the air earlier today. My buddy is heading off to Santa Cruz, CA and he was chucking the hell out of it. He has a much bigger arm than me.
I picked up a 174 CFR Katana and thrown it twice and have yet to turn it over. My two Pro Katanas (blue and white 170 &172) flip and roll worse than a Stingray.
Cool, Your buddy will need a nice straight disc for Santa Cruz. That course is brutal. Plus it will be more flippy at sea level.

P.S. Best pizza in town is "Pizza my Heart" down on Front St. There is also a new course about 10 min south in Watsonville (Pinto Lake) It's pretty brutal, well the front 9 is. I also hope he brought plent of Technu! Both courses have quite a bit of poison oak.

Pizza My Heart iz KILLER! Keep it in the "fairway" at De La or you'll need rope to climb down the hills/cliffs.
I have to disagree... best pizza in town has got to be Woodstock's on Front street. If you are dying for Pizza My Heart go to the one in Capitola on Esplanade.

sorry, don't want to give any visitors diarrhea.
I love the "mother-lemonship observatory deck" star katana! I thought it was the weirdest stamp ever, but even that has grown on me. I have a fondness now for it's oddities and have fun making up a new explanation for it each time.
I'm loving the production star katana. For me the high speed turn is similar to a boss, but mine doesn't fade as hard as any of the bosses I have thrown. Of course, I haven't hit very many trees with it yet.
I've been having a hard time deciding whether to buy a Pro or Star Katana. I think you have convinced me that Star plastic is not what I am looking for.
At least we know where to get good pizza in Santa Cruz.
All the listed flight characters on the Katana are far from what the disc will actually do. I have 2-pros and 2-stars. The pros turn to the extreme, so as long as you throw them with a hard hyzer they will fly straight. Problem is the -3 turn? No way. Lets try -5, the pro star turns harder than a roadrunner! The star Katana -3? Even at a lighter weight the star Katana doesn't have a -3 turn. Personally I like using the discs, but you must ignore the listed flight character and figure out what angle makes you comfortable.
