About the mold: The Spider is a Mid-Range disc that works for hyzer, straight and turnover throws. Throw it with the nose up and the Spider will turn left, with the nose down it will turn right. The Spider is a low speed predictable disc that makes a great approach disc. Excellent for all skill levels and players who prefer a smaller diameter disc.
Some notes on the plastic: Pro Line plastic is not the same as modern Pro plastic. From 2000 to 2002 Innova made a unique translucent blend of plastic and called it Champion Edition. From 2003 to 2004 the name changed to Pro Line or Candy Pro. In 2004 the name of this blend was changed to Champion and that’s the name they stuck with. As a result there is a lot of confusion between Champion Edition, Pro Line, Candy Pro, and Champion. To add to the confusion, there are variations within each blend ranging from opaque, pearly, and firm to crystal clear, soft, and gummy, to cloudy and tacky. You will see the same type of variation in the JK Pro Valkyries and 11x KC Pro plastic. The pearly, stiff CE/Pro Line reportedly tends to be more overstable whereas the gummy, clear CE/Pro Line are usually a bit touchier and the cloudy, tacky CE/Pro Line falls right in the middle. Modern Pro plastic was formulated as a step above DX but below Champion.
The Spider is a point and shoot mid. I bag 2, a CE and a Pro Line. It doesn’t have a ton of glide so I can aim it at the basket on an approach and trust that it won’t fly too far past if I miss. It’s the best forehand mid in the game. I use it for any shot inside 250 feet.
