  • Great for dog-beginner ..but not only

    Very good disc for training a dog that is not keen on regular stiff discs (at least in the beginning).
    Very friendly for mouth and very flexible, this is the perfect set of features - easy to throw, with a nice glide, and when the dog fetches it, you can always tug with this disc. Quite nice bite resistance (this is always up to the dog). In addition to this, you can still play with it in the winter time without any harm to your dog.

    Love this disc. Works well for me as a tug and training disc. I start all my dogs with this disc as I can tug with it and it maintains it shape for throwing. It is soft enough that the young dogs and dogs with a tentative bite can build confidence. I have used it in competition as well and it has never let me down.

    This disc is great for new players! You'll get a ton of glide with a really durable disc. Also a huge bonus - this disc floats! If you like dock diving or if your dog loves to swim - this is the perfect disc!

    This disc works great for dogs with heavier bites but not to much. It is lighter than the Super discs so it is great to Freestyle with, almost like with the Air discs. Since they are a bit more durable than the Airs some tricks are not that easy to play but it is possible with some training :) I Like to use them during the winter time because of the durability.
  • The "K9 Candy" Is My Go-to Disc For My Heavy Biter

    For myself and my dog, "we" love the "K9 Candy" Super Aero disc more than any other disc. I can throw these discs almost as far as any other disc and in some instances, farther. They last longer than anything else I have tried with Vader and Vader prefers these to other softer discs because they are lighter and cause less or no bleeding from how he catches or bites down on discs. (He likes moving at 25mph when snatching things out of the air.)

    I love the weight of these discs, weighing in 110-116 grams. Compared to other discs, their grippy surface makes them a solid choice in my freestyle routines and I have no problem competing for distance shots with them.

    The K9 Candy model is light enough where you can take advantage of the wind if you like floating discs for what ever reason. They airbounce like there's no tomorrow. But they can be slightly more of a victim to some winds than other, heavier discs. (I found the Starlite model was better at fighting off moderate cross winds.) But if you know your disc, you can acclimate accordingly and the wind will be no issue to you.

    Amongst the many models I play around with while testing, I love the Candy because it is more forgiving in most of my 100 different kinds of releases. As long as you are aware of the wind, this disc will never surprise you.

    DURABILITY

    When I first had Vader, who I learned is a heavy biter, I went through a few dozen different models of discs until Robin from the "Indy Dog and Disc Club" pointed me towards the Super Aero discs from Hero Disc USA. (I was not affiliated with anyone at the time, but almost anyone from any Disc Dog Club will always be super friendly and helpful.)

    Since then (May of 2013), I don't believe that there is any other disc in this weight range that lasts longer than the K9 Candy. Vader has a heavy bite and can destroy a 'Hero Air' (or like-disc) in a matter of days. Right now our practice sessions are still using the same 10 discs we started out with a year ago. (Much to the chagrin of Hero Disc here. Sorry guys, but you make great stuff!)

    Vader isn't the heaviest of hard biting dogs, but I believe this is a good disc for most pups who devour other models (of this weight class).

    Sure, you can find other discs from different manufacturers that are soft and/or rubbery. But they have their short comings while any Hero Disc USA disc will fly better than any other of those generic toy brands. Trust me, I have a trash can full of the other "discs" that I will never go back to because of the Super Aero.

    DISTANCE

    In recent testing, I was comparing this to the Starlite disc and the Starlite dominated the distance tests... into the wind. I probably threw a few hundred shots into the wind. Throwing into the wind forces you to throw will and it can demonstrate flaws in your shot.

    Then I turned around to throw with the wind. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was shocked. In a few different rounds of tosses, the K9 Candy LOVED the tail wind (or how I was throwing it with the tail wind) and it dominated my distance throws. MY distance throws. I'm not an expert or even a competitive quad (The Quadruped) player, but I can easily hit 150-170 foot distances on any given day.

    In my distance tests with the wind, while everything else I threw went about 150 feet, the K9 Candy landed out at the 180 distance. Boom!

    FLEXIBLE

    The K9 Candy disc is flexible. Be very aware of the wind when throwing downwind. A good gust can cup the disc and your 30 yard effort will crater at 10 yards. But if you are aware of your environment, you should be gold.

    Vader tends to bleed from most discs because he likes catching at speed (25+ mph). But the K9 Candy flexes when he catches it and he rarely has any more bleeding from the back of his mouth. I've tested discs with other dogs like Vader and we've seen the same effect. Call me silly, but I don't like it when my crazy dog bleeds.

    As time goes on, the only wear I've seen in some of their discs over a six-month period is that they get more flexible.

    -

    OVERALL, I love this disc and unless I am compelled by some organization's competitive rules, I will always use the Hero Disc Super Aero. If you are thinking of checking it out, snag a few "blems" first to make sure they work for you. After that, because they last so dang long, I'd dare to recommend that these discs are great at any price!

    But that's just me. And my discs have lasted over a year of daily practice and they are still going strong.
