Everyone has a hole that they just can’t quite drive, but thanks to some innovation over at Innova, it may have just gotten a little bit easier.
New World Record Holder, 837 Feet!
Innova has created Blizzard Champion plastic which incorporates thousands of microbubbles into their durable champion plastic. The flight patterns are the same, but they have successfully gotten the disc weights all the way down to 130 grams! This allows for more distance with the same amount of effort.
David Wiggins Jr., 2010 Amateur world champion threw a 150g Blizzard Champion Boss 828 feet, which would have been a new world record if thrown in a sanctioned distance competition. He also threw a 150g Blizzard Champion Katana 813 feet.
New World Record:
On Friday April 13th, 2012, Innova Discs posted the following news to their facebook page:
“NEW DISTANCE WORLD RECORD – A 134 gram Blizzard Champion Boss was thrown 255 meters by Team Innova member David Wiggins Jr. at the WFDF sanctioned High Desert Distance Challenge II!”
That is 837 feet! Incredible!
Blizzard Champion Boss – New World Record Holder
The Boss is a fast long-range distance driver with stability. Designed for maximum distance off the tee. Great disc choice for sidearm or backhand throwers. The Boss is my personal favorite long distance driver, it’s also the new world record holder, shattering the old distance record by an amazing 17 feet!
Blizzard Champion Katana
The Katana is built with the finesse thrower in mind. Recommended downwind driver. Very fast, understable driver. 13 speed!
Blizzard Champion Destroyer
The Destroyer is a fast, stable power driver with significant glide. Great disc for sidearm throwers and those with lots of power.
Blizzard Champion Wraith
A long and fast distance driver. A stable flyer that performs predictably into the wind.
