 I just got a 150 Destroyer since that's what I throw mostly( heavy star destroyers are my fav). Won't throw it till tomorrow and then might pick up a Boss or Tdevil.

 Any thoughts from those of you who have had a chance to check them out?

 ultra flippy?  Am I gonna have to really  hiezer it?  huge difference from the 150's down to a 139?

floater?  hit a tree yet? durability?  etc...

I love them! They're not as understable as I thought they would be (139g Blizzard Boss never hyzerflipped uncontrollably on me) and the 146g Wraith I tried really boosted my backhand distance (I'm forehand-dominant); just don't throw them into a headwind for Pete's sake!

Innova Blizzard Plastic Thoughts

I have a Boss and a Destroyer. I have thrown both equally and I like the Destroyer better, I think because I don't have the power for the Boss yet. I get a better flight with the Destroyer. I am having a harder time controlling the Boss.

155g Boss

158g Destroyer

Alright, I couldn't stand it. Hole 17 at one of my Home courses is about 420ft from the Blue tees. Always a Tailwind on this hole. I want to Park it SO BAD and just don't have the arm. Just ordered a 133gr Katana to try out. If I don't like, it will make a great forehand disc for my 6 year old. :)

Anyone else read that David Higgins Jr. threw one of the Blizzards 828ft????? :0

I just got them in at The Throw Shop, reviews to come tomorrow as it's raining and dark!~

Thrown each 4-5 times, cold windy day, and I have a cold so the review is not based on much input yet:

Boss- 156g lots of bubbles in flight plate: Threw on a 430' hole into light headwind from the right (I am RHBH), and it flipped hard but carried out, ended up a solid 440' of tee-to-landing distance, but 150' right of fairway!

But on another shot, thrown high with a little hyzer angle, it went a solid 450' on a turnover that finished straight in the fairway. I think the Boss will turn out to be too flippy for those who throw with tons of snap.

Destroyer- 150g no bubbles in flight plate:

Threw it 465' in a tailwind, straight

Threw it under the basket 425' hole between two tree lined ponds, tailwind from left

Flipped didn't make it 300' cross-wind to the right next hole

Sidearm- flipped HARD and flew like a 90 degree angle left after it had turned, not for sidearm

 I got to throw the 150 destroyer today. I must say I was very pleasantly surprised that it didnt turn over like I thought it would.  I am definitely  going to have to try a few more disc in the blizzard line.

 Thanks again for all the feedback gang.

OK. The 133gr Katana is VERY UNDERSTABLE TO SAY THE LEAST. :)

I under estimate my arm 99% of the time, but this thing was ridiculous. Forehand, using only my wrist and forearm, I turned it over MORE than 90 degrees and it went WAY LEFT. I figured. But, Backhand, I actually turned it so far anhyzer that it flipped over onto its top. It barrel rolled on me! I should have known ordering such a low weight. I ordered a Destroyer in 154gm today. Trial and error? Lol.....

I did give the Blizzard Katana to my 6 year old and he threw it forehand about 120ft his 1st throw. So, it is his now. :)

Yesterday playin in our 23rd annual frosty frisbee i smacked a tree and and took a big notch out of a tree with my 157 bliz boss and this was No damage to the plastic that i could see. Another shot i brushed two snow laden evergreens and the disc kept going through to within 15 feet of the basket. they said i was lucky and i said lucky to have the blizzard boss.

 

 

I was told by an Innova salesman that any disc under 140 will float

I have one of each, and they are definitely adding distance to my drives. The Wraith is my favorite so far for holding a nice straight line. The Destroyer and Boss are both getting me more distance, but are harder to control for me. The 130 Katana goes forever, but has a real hard break to the right. And, if you suffer grip lock when throwing it, it might just come right back to you...

I got a super-light destroyer. 132 grams. The disc just seems to float forever, but the light weight seriously messes up my rip. I always end up shooting it high and to the right. Hoping that If I work on it a little bit, it could really be a bomb.

I have a 155 handles the wind fine (nothing major over 10mph) I can bomb that thing farther then another disc I own. I do not have the power for a full size boss so that may be why. Forehand with this disc is not worth it unless you are going for super long uncontrollable roller
