Innova has many new STAR discs: Gator, Spider, Eagle, Max, Skeeter, Rhyno Aviar Driver and FL. Also, the DX TeeRex just came out. GDS/Quest has the 10 M Brick, Raging Inferno, Raging Inferno DT and Scorcher.

Firebird L mold.

I believe it is the same mold as the old school Pro Line (Candy) Firebirds.

I've heard there are going to be some "SS" models from DCraft coming out that are "super straight" - ie, less stable.

The Comet LE has me puzzled though. I love the Comet, especially old, beat, flippy ones.

Seen in the new magazine the raging inferno has a speed rating of 14. Does anybody know if this is just gateways claim.
Also seen a pic of hole #5 from idlewild, in some contest per Rob J., way to go.

Rob was also published in the mag for a column "What I've learned from DG" or something to that effect.

I believe that's Gateway/Quest's rating format - I'd like to give one a try though. I've popped the Inferno out a few times, but only for tunnel shots where I can make it flip up from hyzer. Maybe a more stable version that you could really lean into might make a top-D contender.

Craig, do you still throw those Inferno's?

I think I've got more controllable, pure D with a Pro Wraith also.

I keep carrying that Inferno around in my bag, but I think I'm just more comfortable with the Wraith mold. I've got flippy ones that come up from hyzer, I've got straight ones that make a nice tight S when thrown flat and hard, and I've got roller ones that, well, roll (They are also good for nose up, super high shots, that you want to go land in a straight line, like going for the three on Idlewild 6 with a good drive).

The Inferno intrigues me though - I've thrown it and watched others throw it and it did some things that I've never seen a disc do, like penetrating forward on long d shots while slowing down... etc.

We have the new FLX discs from Discraft (not in regular production): ESP FLX Buzzz and ESP FLX Surge - these are Fundraiser discs for the BGO. These discs can be bent double and return to their original shape in seconds - pretty wild. $15 each for the BGO - limited quantities right now.

The new Discraft discs mentioned by Matt will be in Friday or Monday: ESP Avenger SS (Super Straight), ESP Comet LE (approximately 1200 made), Elite X Soft Banger GT and ESP Tracker.

More new ones from Quest/GDS: Crossfire (putter), Backbone (midrange with a dome)and Wildfire(midrange with a superdome!) - they are definitely pushing the envelope in disc design.

I am hoping they will come in tomorrow - but not sure. If so, I'll bring some.

All you need is a new roc medium roc and a beat up roc. Why do you think the champ is "The Champ". The sooner you figure that out the sooner you can get on with your game.
Geeeezzz

Because he uses the "Equalizer"! - that's why he's the Champ - he could throw Whamos and still beat us all. Although Rob will say it's because he putts with an Aviar.

Thanks guys but really I can't throw a Whamo that far? And I don't even use an Aviar anymore.

Put the Aviar, Wizard, or equivalent back in your bag!
If you can throw it well, your other discs will fly much better.
Also, if you can throw a WHAMO well, with no "flutter", you have achieved a smooth release which will yield longer, more predictable shots overall, especially into the wind.
I prefer to warm-up before the two-minute warning with a "thick" disc.
There is a reason why some of the best Disc Golfers started out throwing WHAMOS.
