The Boss

Postby RonRazz » Mon Aug 25, 2008 12:07 pm

From Disc Golf Sweden...

Yes, the new Boss has a speed 13 rating according to Innova, glide is set to 4, turn (HSS)=0 and fade (LSS) 4. It is a excellent forehand and headwind driver in the same vein as the X-Caliber says Dave Dunipace. It has the widest rim of all the Innova discs and is not very comfortable for players with small hands. It was sent to for PDGA approval last week, but release date is uncertain, we will probably not see Champion Boss in the shops until the USDGC. Cause of the wide rim on the Boss they will only come in weights over 170 grams except maybe in the Dx.plastic.

Hmm.... something that only a forehand thrower could hold? I bet some lanky mofo's like the baker boys or Whitson could handle it. I suppose I better keep my eyes on this since so many Southwoods huckers come into the store... :lol:

win a world title, they might even put your name on it. :lol:

Of course to have a chance at that, making your tee time is key. 8)

A tournament in California is selling them as fund raisers right now and Innova has a release date on Oct 6th

I think this disc is going to help me some how throw 425-440 on flat ground. And mike thought the xcal was junk and he still throws it. This might be a little flippy for big arms but for guys like me it's going to be a nice addition to the bag.

I got to throw Sprague's yesterday. SUPER Fast. I thought it kind of had a flight like an Orc. Flips up quickly when thrown hard, glides, then dumps out when it slows down. I thought it was a cool disc. The rim is massive too.
