This one of the few speed 13 distance drivers recommended for new golfers.
Discraft says this about the Daedalus: “A distance driver for humans who want to soar with gods. The Daedalus has wings to fly far down the fairway. The Daedalus is a new maximum downwind distance driver crafted for less powerful players. The disc will double as a long distance roller for more experienced players. The Daedalus likes to be thrown low. Make sure it doesn’t soar too close to the sun.”
The Prodigy D5 is a high speed very understable distance driver. This is the Prodigy driver for less experienced players who are looking for a straight drive or anyone who wants a steady hyzer-flip. The D5 is the disc you want if you’re a fan of Prodigy, or if you’re looking for a disc that gives easy distance. At 1.6cm, this disc is substantially thinner than the other Prodigy Distance drivers. The D5 is unique in it’s design, it was built to slice through the air, has a slight bevel on the underside of it’s rim, and could add some extra grip depending on your preferred throwing style .
The ABC Bee Line is a fast high speed distance driver made by ABC Discs. This slightly understable Disc golf disc has an ultra-thick rim and will go the distance for power throwers. Dan Pastore, the owner of ABC Discs describes it as “a faster, more powerful Katana with amazing glide.”
The D4 is a slightly understable distance driver in the Prodigy line. This disc is an amazingly far distance driver designed for intermediate players and holds up against disc golfers with moderate arm speed. Even beginners and amateurs will have times were they can get this disc to sail. The glide this disc offers is excellent and it has a very limited end of flight fade. The D4 has a soft beveled rim that allows for a smoother, and more comfortable release. Some credit the longer flight to the more efficient inner rim. This disc has very similar dimensions to other drivers in the Prodigy line and also possesses the same rim width (2.3 cm) as the other drivers. By learning the similar feelings that other discs have that make them react differently, disc golfers should be able to learn how to throw more consistently and it will provide them with the ability to choose the perfect driver for whatever shots they face.
The Katana is an amazing high speed distance driver with some major turn and fade. The Katana will slice through the air like a katana. This speed 13 driver comes equipped with an incredible high speed turn (3) which is followed by a major low speed fade (3). Innova says this disc has “flight characteristics of the Sidewinder on steroids.” The Katana is certainly more than capable of handling anhyzer shots and sailing to the maximum distance. This is also a lot safer than an actual Katana sword.
The Vulcan is an amazing high speed distance driver that will fly all over the fairway. This understable disc has a huge turn rating (-4), but also has big fade (2). Despite its high speed rating (13) the initial understability of the disc makes this suitable for intermediate players.
The Vulcan is a thin disc (1.4 cm) with a very thick rim (2.4cm). It is now available in Pro, Champion, Star, and Blizzard Champion plastics.
The Bolt is one of the best distance drivers for players who can take advantage of power and flick. This disc has an incredible glide, high speed turn, and substantial low speed fade. Throw this disc at a slight anhyzer angle, watch it recover, and be amazed at how far it will fly.The Bolt is perhaps the easiest high speed driver to throw, making it easy for both backhand and forehand shots. The Bolt has a wide (2.4 cm) but shallow (1.1 cm) rim with a super sleek profile.
The Groove is a stable flying, ultra high speed driver that provides maximum distance. The unique thing about the Groove, and the reason for its name, is the groove around the underside of the rim. While this high speed driver has a thick rim (2.4cm), the void of plastic around the wide rim means that this disc can be molded in lower weights.
Even though it is rated a Speed 13 driver, the Groove is still suitable for less experienced players. When thrown right, the Groove will glide farther than almost any other disc currently on the market. Innova gives the Groove a glide rating at 6. This is a good disc for both backhand and forehand shots.
The Nuke SS is the “super stable” version of the popular Nuke driver. Though this is a maximum distance driver built for speed with a 2.5cm rim, it can be thrown by less experienced players. The Nuke SS comes equipped with an impressive high speed turn radius with an equally impressive degree of low speed fade. The flight path of the Nuke SS is fairly similar to the Innova Katana. If you’re looking for a disc with a thick wing length, then you’ll love the distance you can coax out of this disc!
The Nuke SS can be purchased in the highly durable Z-line, or premium Titanium plastics. If you want to add some style, you can get this disc in dyed plastic as well. For night play, this disc is available in Z glow.
The Cannon by Legacy is meant for experienced players who have solid control of their disc. The numbers show this disc has the potential to be the farthest flying disc on the market but must be fired like a cannon with precision, not as a loose cannon. When given power the disc will exhibit a great degree of high speed turn followed by a big fade.The question is will this disc provide you with more distance? That’s up to you to find out.
