Product Review: Hero Super Sonic 215 Discs

Hero Super Sonic 215 discs are 8.5" in diameter and made with dogs in mind. These are made from Hero's K-9 Candy material, a translucent plastic that is light and easy on mouths. They come in several different colors.

All of Hero's dog discs are made out of a special type of plastic that doesn't shatter or splinter when chomped. Instead it just develops tooth holes. This means that softer discs have a limited lifespan, our Pup 120 discs are currently full of punctures. The K-9 Candy material has held up great though, and our Super Sonics still look brand new.

One of the cool things about Hero is that they sell imperfect discs for half price. The most common blemish involves the stamp on the disc coming out wrong. This is purely a cosmetic issue, and makes for some very affordable discs. I got these for $6 each and they will probably last forever unless Sisci develops a lot more bite power.

Pros: Flexible enough to play tug with, and for Sisci to pick up off the ground. Tough enough that none of ours have holes yet. Blems are significantly more affordable than perfectly stamped discs. They come in pink!

Cons: Not tough enough to be used as a chew toy, these are still interactive supervision-required toys.

Bottom Line: Hero goes to great lengths to describe how their discs fly, which probably means I need to get better at actually throwing them further than the length of my tiny yard.
