While I had thought about trying a lighter one, I figured I'd start with one around the usual driver weight I throw, so I got a 172g. And, bottom line, I'm pretty disappointed with it. I would definitely fit into that "a driver for the rest of us" category that Innova is touting this disc as being perfect for, meaning, yes, I don't have the big arm by ANY means. I find that Innova's ratings for this disc just didn't seem accurate at all. First off, it didn't appear to be any faster than a destroyer, for example. Nor did it seem to have more glide. The turn doesn't seem to be a -2, & the fade at the end of the flightwas more than 2, it appeared to have as much fade as a destroyer or X-Caliber!! So, anyway, I guess distance is most important, right? Well, my wraiths & destroyers were consistently going farther, usually at least 10 to 15 feet, sometimes more. And hell, my old inferno's easily beat the groove by at least 25 feet every time! So... I guess I have a bright green Groove for sale or trade if anyone's interested!! :mrgreen:
Sooo...I'm guessing I can stop looking for a Groove to trade for that Comet? :lol:

i have a disc that goes straight one that goes left and one that goes right

and some i can throw thumber style.

Well, somethin' is tellin' me maybe I shouldn't quite give up on it yet, that maybe I ought to give it another chance on the practice field. But, I did mean to ask you Brian at the tournament Sun. if you had any pro destroyers you'd be willing to trade. If so, let me know of any other discs(besides the Groove) that you might be looking for. TeeRex's, Firebird's, you name it, chances are I might have some!

I have 3 destroyers looking for a new home. When they first came out I got a couple pro line and a star line. Unlike most people, however, I didn't really like the destroyer.
I like TeeRex's but I don't really need one right now. So, I'll try the Groove, a Monster, Firebird, Banshee or anything that is stable/overstable.
Let me know.

Well, actually, at least with the pro destroyer, the weight isn't too big a deal with me. Most of the ones I have are 169g, they don't make them much lighter, & heavier is fine too.


And Jeff I., we could probably work up some trades on the two pro destroyers if you want. Not really interested in the star one, I have those but don't like them as much. I guess maybe at an event soon(I probably won't make the Match play tour.), I can bring some of the discs you mentioned & we could work something out, okay? 8-)

Well I gave the Groove some throws again yesterday, & it continues to not impress me much at all. No chance of it finding a spot in my bag! I thought maybe I'd like this one, because I really like the Monarch, which was the first disc Innova came up with that had the channel or groove in the rim. I've been talking up trading for pro destroyers, but I'd also be interested in Monarchs as well! 8-)
