I utilize this disc for every drive I ever do. Unfortunately I don't have a strong enough arm to utilize the more recent discs Innova and other manufactures have come out with. The speed and aerodynamics on those discs are very flat and need a very strong throw for them not to fade immediately on flight. This is the beauty of the TeeBird. The strength is not needed to throw it amazingly far which is why this disc is among the favorites of many!
