Review: I know i've already given a review of the Cro saying it was the best all around midrange, but I had not thrown the skeeter yet. For straight short drives, approach shots and controlable putts, this is the ultamate disc. This disc really does replace my Aurora MS as my 300' and less goto disc. Slow anneys, big short hyzers, tomahawks and for putting just a quick flick of the wrist and your in. I've even thrown this disc into the wind with a big hyzer and it flipped flat and flew as far as my SL on a bad day.(around 325'). For a GOTO disc at distances 300' or less to putting this is the disc. I love this disc.

Review: the Skeeter has become my #1 mid-range and approach disc. I could use it for a whole round at any short course. It hold a nice steady anheizer line, plus it has a tremendous amount of glide for a midrange. Great for straight shots from the fairway, and tough as well.

Review: I have to say that the Skeeter is the straightest flying midrange I have every thrown. It has a nice little fade at the end of its flight. If you like the Goblin then you will love the Skeeter. PS-Works well for putting as well.

Review: Four words discribe this disc:

Straight up mid range.

Innova rated this disc with a fade of one, but I don't see where they got that. When thrown, this disc goes up, and then comes right back down about 250 feet away. No turn, no fade. Nothing. The great part about this disc is it holds the same flight characteristics when thrown at different speeds. I can throw this frisbee on shots that I would usually grab a flat top roc on (300 ft.), or I can hit some of the shorter "birdie holes" on courses with it (160 ft.)

Another cool thing about this disc is, usually when I buy DX midranged discs, I usually hit 3 trees with em and have to retire the frisbee. However, the domeness of this disc and stiffness allow it to just bounce off trees and snap back to its original shape. And believe me I have allready naid some big trees with this sucker, and the only way you'd know it is that I've just told you so.

The only disadvantage of this disc is that it does not take on a headwind at all. Even at max weight, it will flip on you like crazy. It is for this reason that it has not completlly replaced my rocs. I still throw a kc pro roc into headwinds for midrange cuz its' overstableness can handle it way better than the skeeter.

All in all it's a great disc. I can't wait to see if they release it in champion or star though. I have a feeling the DX plastic will start flaking off like it always seems to.
