The MVP resistor is a slower overstable fairway driver that provides more controllable speed. The Resistors flat profile makes it excellent for forehand flicks and overhand shots. The Resistor compliments the MVP line of fairway drivers by providing a more overstable driver than the Shock. Utilizing MVP’s GYRO technology, the Resistor “resists” turning and experiences a strong reliable fade. MVP says, “this disc executes accuracy and rangeability like a dream.” This disc is a hard one to “Resist” putting in your arsenal.

The Prodigy D1 is an overstable, ultra high speed driver – we’ve given it a an astounding speed rating of 13 using the Innova system. Like all very high speed drivers, the D1 has a thick (2.3 cm) rim. Though the rim is considered thick, it is not quite at PDGA’s maximum width. The Innova Krait and Westside King share the same width as this disc. While the D1 is overstable, it isn’t a “meathook”, or one we would classify as “very overstable.” The D1 is a fantastic driver for power throwers, windy shots, forehand shots, and strategic doglegs.
The Tern is a understable high speed driver in Innovas line of discs. Being understable, this is a disc that provides max distance for intermediate players as well as a good level of comfort.

The Leopard is the classic straight flying Innova fairway driver. This disc is often seen in beginner sets thanks to its reliable flight path and limited fade. It’s not the fastest flying disc (speed 6) but new players probably will see more distance than any other disc out there.
While the Leopard is great for beginners, it can be found in the arsenal of more experienced players. With moderate shots this disc is great for weaving through narrow tree lines. It’s also a good anhyzer disc that slices to the right, and makes a good roller to.
If you want a great disc to perfect your throwing technique, buy a handful of inexpensive DX Leopards and head to a field.
The Saint is a fantastic straight flying driver that provides intermediate players with more distance. The flight path of this disc has a slight “S curve” with a slightly overstable net result. When thrown with power it has a fairly significant turn followed by a fairly moderate fade. This disc is recommended for flights up to 350 feet.

It is a taller than average distance driver (1.9cm) with a moderate wing length (1.9cm).
The Ghost is an overstable mid-range disc with a healthy amount of glide. While it was designed to be a “straight flying” disc, The Ghost comes with a substantial low speed fade.
