A little about Innova and their golf discs.
INNOVA was formed in 1983 to meet the developing equipment needs of disc golfers. In that year, Dave Dunipace created the World's first disc designed specifically for the sport of Disc Golf. That first disc, the Eagle - U.S. Patent # 4,568,297, established INNOVA as the technological pacesetter in Disc Golf. Innova's continuing design innovations and product improvements keep them number one in Disc Golf. Today INNOVA has the most popular and complete line of golf discs. INNOVA's precision molded discs meet the demands of any shot regardless of the player's skill level. INNOVA golf discs offer the superior "feel" that is so critical for confident, shot making ability. INNOVA golf discs fly great right out the box and wear in slowly. The inevitable changes in flight characteristics that come with use are gradual and older discs often become those special discs you depend upon when you have to make the shot that counts. INNOVA is the brand used exclusively by 12-Time World Champion Ken Climo.
--- Flight Ratings
Flight Ratings are broken into four main categories: Speed, Glide, Turn, & Fade. These characteristics can be used to rate various aspects of each disc's flight. Each disc has a distinct "personality"; the flight path that makes that disc unique. Flight Ratings can be used to compare our discs. Once you have thrown one of our discs, you can use the flight rating numbers to compare it to any of our other disc models. Innova has over 50 models to suit a wide range of players and their throwing techniques. To learn more about what each of these characteristics mean, refer to the chart below. Flight Ratings are based on a backhand throw.
--- Discs Made With...
Star Plastic will retain flight ratings for a long period of time, with added grip.
Champion Plastic will retain flight ratings for a long period of time.
Pro Plastic will start slightly less overstable and the driver models will have more glide.
DX Plastic will start more overstable and with use will match the ratings. With continued use, the DX plastic will eventually become more understable than the ratings.
--- Brief Description of Terms...
Stability is a description of the disc’s flight path.
Understable means a flight that turns right (RHBH throw).
Stable is a flight that doesn’t turn.
Overstable refers to a flight that turns left (RHBH throw).
--- Distance Drivers
Distance Drivers were created to provide players with the maximum distance possible. Some Distance Driver models provide a straight line of flight, while others have the ability to travel to the left or right down the fairway. Some of Innova's distance drivers are designed to cut through the wind, while others offer extra glide, providing additional distance for less powerful throwers. All of Innova's Distance Drivers are created to bring maximum range and control in each unique situation. The Valkyrie currently holds the world distance record of 820 feet thrown by Innova Team Member Christian Sandström.
--- Fairway Drivers
Fairway Drivers deliver confidence in both driving and approach situations. For many players, Innova's Fairway Drivers provide nearly the same distance as their Distance Drivers, but with added control and accuracy. Newer players will find these discs easy to control. Many World Championships were won using Innova's Fairway Drivers. These discs can inspire a new level of confidence in your game. Improve the level of your game with the superior control of Innova's Fairway Drivers.
--- Mid-Range Discs
Mid-Range Discs are designed to provide accuracy and control for a wide variety of shots. These versatile discs are effective in many situations, from drives and mid-range shots, to approaches and even putting. Innova offers an assortment of Mid-Range Discs to match the needs of a wide range of players using a variety of throwing techniques.
--- Putt and Approach
Putt and Approach discs are designed specifically for putting and making short controlled upshots. Putt and Approach discs come in a variety of models and plastics to accommodate each player’s unique putting style and grip preference. These discs offer players of all skill levels predictability and performance around the target. Innova's Putt and Approach discs also provide an exceptional amount of control for professional level players performing short drives and mid-range shots. The Aviar has been used by more World Champions than all other disc models combined.
