Review: This is a great disc for finesse drives. I can't feed it a lot of power or else it will turn over on me. If you're looking for an accurate woodsy/tunnel driver then this will get the job done perfectly. I don't recommend it for 9-12 O'clock winds or else it will flip over fairly quickly. Great at low power!

Review: Here I'm reviewing Innova's Pro Line Beast. This was their first run of the Beast in candy plastic, before the name changed to Champion. Although I don't know for sure, I personally don't think that the Pro Line Beast is comparable to the Champion Beast, because they feel different to me and I think that they may be a slightly different mold. I've been playing for about 3 years now and almost from the very beginning (as soon as they were released)I've had a 174g Pro Line Beast. I have 4 of these now and I try and use them equally to reduce wear. If these babies ever wear out I have no clue what I'm going to do with my game. The Pro Line Beast is my most accurate driver, I think mainly because I've had it so long and I can make it do what I want to. While occasionally a Teebird-L or a Starfire might give me a straighter shot, the Beast is more consistent for me. In the same vein, while with a Quarter K and sometimes a Starfire I can outdistance my Beasts, I'd rather throw 350' with my Beasts consistently than have four 300' for every 400' with other discs. The Beast is very easy to control and it can be throw extremely flat and extremely straight for long distances, it can get an amazing S-curve for ultra long distances, and it can be used for big hyzers and big anhyzers alike. I've even used this in One and Done tournaments, thats how much I love my Beasts. The Beasts are not always the best choice however; as I said, I can sometimes get more distance out of other discs, especially in a headwind, and the Beast is no substitute for a good mid-range. Whether you like the Beast or not, find a disc that you like and learn to do anything with it as I did with my Beast. No matter what the disc is, the time spent learning that disc will improve all aspects of your game.

Review: A first started playing with a beast. It was very hard of course, its a prety friggin overstable. Anyway, I used to throw it really hard with a left angle, before I even knew how to keep a disc level, or use a right angle. It actually whent prety far, a consistant 300'. Now I can throw it med-high with a left curve that turns over right slowly for about 300' untill it finishes with a slow left to land it about 400-450'. I deffinately love this disc. A good throw for short right turns is to give it a right angle with weak arm snap. Generaly you can expect a gentle donward-right float to very level slight left float. Ive aced a 250' and had chains several times with the previous throw type.

I like heavy ones so you can put a lot of tork and speed into the throws described.

Also someone mentioned DX plastic being more overstable. This is definately true, I would say Champion is less stable then DX or Jk.
