Id suggest going up to around a high 140-150g. weight.

Mambas? Nobody is buying them to be honest.

It should work for anyone that lacks arm speed. It just isnt selling compared to the Blizzard discs.

I remember back when a disc came out it was a big deal. You didnt release 5 others at the same time or a few weeks before. Mamba will probably catch on for people, just hasnt yet.

When was the last time a signifigant disc came out? One not already represented by 6 others? The Boss/Nuke era? That was kind of a game changer. These blizzard discs might turn out to be (and will they replace the existing 150 class all together?)... but all of these other releases IMO are just litter in the lineup. Seriously, an "out-of-the-box roller" WHY?!
I think Innova knows that no matter what they make, someone will want it looking for that "edge", but over time, most of this crap just disappears. Sometimes making pricey collectibles, other times not. How's the value of that Skeeter holding up? It's gotta be hard to stock all of these.

It is very tough to stock it all. We keep as much as possible in, but I have discs that have been on the shelf long enough to become collectable.

I agree with you to a point about Innova, but also understand there are new players out there that should use those understable drivers, as oppoesed to the Star Boss they want to buy. I just wish the durability was better. When you buy a new disc with "broke in Flight", where are you when the disc breaks in?

To answer your question Marty, Id say it was probably the Wraith. The Nuke and Boss could easily fit there, but I think the Wraith was the last disc that actually was marketed for quite awhile without another quick release. The TeeRex wasnt long after the Wraith I guess, but not sure how fast that release date was. Cloudy memory.

Chase, I think it was the Orc that was the big game changer. I remember the release of that disc changing the way people looked at 500 foot holes. I remember being at Graceland that year, seeing a few guys throw them and thinking, hmmm, I'm gonna need one of those.

Yeah, the Orc was a big success, but measured against the Pro Line Beast and for people like Luke, the Pro Line Monster.

Monster was actually a pretty big game changer as well. Im not sure what was released first offhand, the Monster or Flick, but both changed Sidearm.

Those are the real Buzzz collectors bidding them up. These will fall, but I dont know how much. The Memorial discs have been bringing in good money the last few years and holding value.
