The fact of the matter is that we are able, (with some difficultly), to make virtually any weight Boss, Destroyer, Katana, etc. in Champion down to about 110 gms. If we bother to go to the research time and expense, will disc golf respond to this new product or will they continue to follow the mantra of "heavier is better".
At 53 and having torn my rotator 3 times in the past, I can't throw max weight discs very far any more. I am lucky to get 250 out of them. However, after picking up light plastic, 150 - 160 gm., like the R-Pro Boss, I can once again throw in the 350 range. I also have been throwing a 160 gm. Star Vulcan that has given me greater distance than the Boss. I only dream of what things would have been like had these discs been around when I was 25 and throwing Kitty Hawks and Super Puppies in the Oklahoma winds.
I would love to see and throw any other discs you guys can manufacture in the light weights like the Destroyer and Katana. Also, as far as the wind, I can throw the light Bosses and Vulcans into a stiff Oklahoma headwind (20 mph+) and have the same success controlling it as I do on a fairly calm day. You just have to throw it with a little more hyser out of the hand to compensate for the turn.
So, please do not hesitate to produce lower weights, even some of the young kids around here (SW OK) have started to try the light Bosses and Vulcans and like them.
Thanks for all you do.
