Review: By far my go to disc, I have several aces with this disc. I have a pretty good stock pile of them now, I buy them whenever I can, I wish Innova would just start making them some more, that way I dont have to throw an Ace disc all the time. It seems to be a slower firebird, I throw it mainly sidearm, and I have pinpoint accuracy with it, once you learn the fade on it the thing is $$$$$$$$$$$

Review: If anyone out there throws with a little bit of umpff, has discs getting beat in and/or turning over too easily this disc is an end all. The Champ Whippet is way overstable, roc's travel further than these and it is all right because this mold is rather slow, indestructable, and there fade is more consistent than a monster, or a flick, firebird...I would say it is a new discraft drone...but with a bit more speed and a lot more durability. I play the hard fade drop, or the B-line with a twist of skip. Nobody needs this disc every hole, but no disc can do what it does even half as well.

Review: I recently lost my 175g Champion Whippet. I had been dreading the day that would come when I did and it finally happened. The worst thing was that I knew exactly where it was, I could even see it, I just couldn't get to it. When I went back to get it with tools it was gone.

With that being said Innova needs to do another run of this disc. Only doing five thousand of them was just not enough. If you can even find them on ebay they are usually expensive.

This is without a doubt one of the most overstable discs ever. However the grip of flight path of this thing are second to none and was indispendable in my short game. The most consistent shot a RHBH thrower has is a hyzer so throwing something that hyzers well and taking this into account when shooting makes upshots super easy. This things really just does nothing but hyzer but it doesn't spin so fast (ie a monster) that is gets thrown off easily. It just glides in just right.

Throwing this thing really hard anhyzer off the tee when you have the room is a lot of fun. Depending upon the length and room to work with you should throw it at different heights but you can pull some stuff of this way that you never imagined before. I love to slice through trees with this thing when doing reverse hyzer flips. This makes a good tomahawk disc too.

This is a great disc. If you have one that you can't figure out how to throw let me know and I'll take it off of your hands. later

Review: The champion whippet is an unbelievably overstable fairway driver. I received a 175g whippet as a gift in a quest to find the most overstable disc I could. I had thrown max weight vipers for a while, but they can't hold a candle to the whippet. There are usually at least 3 shots per round that I use the whippet because there's literally no other disc that can do what it can. I use it mainly in the approach range when I need an extremely overstable flight and finish. There's one particular hole where the basket is hidden in a horseshoe-shaped ring of trees, with the opening facing away from your angle of approach. And just beyond the basket, the ground slopes down to a small creek. I will throw the whippet low enough to get under the 4' branches, way to the right of the basket. It will begin to bank hard left, skip, and actually skip UPHILL to the left and sit under the basket. There's no way another disc could do that for me. I certainly don't use it on every hole, but there are definitely those times that if I didn't have it, I would be at a complete loss. Thrown hard, this disc will go straight for only about half of its flight. Once it begins to bank left, it gets a sharper and sharper angle until it hits the ground. It will then skip and sometimes actually take some distance off because it is turning left so hard it comes back on itself a little.

I am probably THE biggest advocate for this disc (i carry two just in case). I only wish they would continue the champion run of this mold but you can't always get what you want. Now, on with the review, this disc is EXTREMELY overstable. Yes, it's really more of a fairway driver than a distance driver but I can still squeeze a good 300' out of it. (LHFH) but i usually use if for a long approach shot. The most beautiful thing about this disc is it's ability to hold the line in any windy condition. and you can throw it hard and it stays stable. go ahead throw it anhyser as hard as you can...it will stay stable at high speeds. The champion version of this disc is more stable than it's KC and DX counterparts. also, you've just got to love that special run champion ring stamp.
