I was on Facebook and saw a friend of mine bought this Honey Badger throw in red with silver lines on it. It looked really nice and I had never heard of it and never heard of the brand Foxland Precision either. I quickly went to Google looking for the website and found It and checked out what all they have. I was quickly impressed to find out its pretty much a one man business out of Tennessee and to see his variety of throws was very impressive. Most of them used D size bearings but the Honey Badger used a C size. I contacted the company and talked with him about doing a review on one since I had not seen anything on youtube or any forums. I offered to do a review on the Honey Badger and send it back too him in a week or so of play. He said he needed a review and sent me one free of charge it was B-grade but is 100% ok I would say just a minor mistake.

This is an undersized throw and I do not own many of those but the closest thing I could compare it too is the Onedrop Deitz.
The size is very close to the Deitz but the Honey Badger is much lighter. The thing is pretty fast just like the Deitz and the catch zones remind me of each other. They do not feel the same when played but the visual looks similar to an extent. If you like the Deitz size you also like this throw for the size.
I really feel like this is a quality throw. The finish on it is great and grinds so well. It has no thumb grind groove but it grinds well still. The appearance is what really drew me to this throw. I think it looks elegant almost yet simplistic. The craftsmanship of this is high quality and I would be happy buying one for the price they sell them for. The response bothers some people but I like it and if you do not like it you can replace them with Onedrop ghost pads or your own silicone. The bearings that come on them are subpar mine got pretty bad very quick but Ive had good bearings do that to me as well. I just threw a OD 10 ball in it and it zings! I am not one to like undersized throws, I prefer oversized to be honest but I do really like this thing. Its one that gets to go in my box that only holds 8. So really if you don’t have bad luck with the bearing this thing is perfect out of the box. They respond to facebook questions also so thats really nice to have that kind of support if anything goes wrong or you just have a question. The only thing is that it is sort of light at 61g and that bothers some people. I thought I only liked 65+ gram throws but I do really like how fast I can play this without it going sideways on me. I tried some horizontal play but I am not very good at it yet but it seemed fine for it. Its a very smooth ride with a nice bearing in it as well. No vibe at all. I would recommend this throw to anyone who likes undersized throws and even to people who are unsure if they do. If you just hate undersized this one is not for you but you never know I like all kinds of throws that I wouldn’t of thought I would like. If you have never herd of this company go check them out, shoot a like to them on facebook or just admire the pretty pictures in this review!
