Discmania Fairway Drivers allow for precision accuracy with giving up minimal distance in the process. The FD model has been a staple for the company as a go-to Fairway disc. In the process they have molded variations and instead of completely re-naming it another disc, they provide numbers after them. These discs come in four major plastic types:
Discmania D-Line Fairway Drivers will serve their purpose, however too many hits on the trees might just damage your disc rendering it without the same flight path as intended. This being said, just like hockey skates, some prefer beat up DX discs as the change in flight is exactly what they are looking for.
Discmania P-Line Fairway Drivers offer a grip which DX does not have allowing for some strong throwing capabilities. The downside is unfortunately does not have superior durability.
Discmania C-Line Fairway Drivers will have no fear, hit the trees and shed no tear! Slighly less grip, but amazing durability along with a smooth feel and transparent plastic allows many to consider this plastic a must. It also tends to not be as flexible of a disc.
Discmania S-Line Fairway Drivers have the grip, have the durability and have the flexibility allowing them to be the premium plastic choice for Discmania and many in the Disc Golf Community.
There are flight ratings on the disc which tells you the Speed, Glide, Turn and Fade each individual model. For Fairway Drivers the Speed is which puts them into this category. The range of speed to be categorized starts with 7 such as the FD & FD2 and all the way up to a speed of 9 which only has one disc in this classification, the FD3. Due note, faster speed does not mean farther distance, especially for an individual with minimal throwing power. Every single one of these discs were molded specifically to provide maximum distance without sacrificing accuracy for a Disc Golf player. Remember, lighter discs will provide beginners an easier and more rewarding experience. I link it to bowling, we all know the heavier ball is better, but if you can't throw it, what's the use!
The Discmania Fairway Drivers will still have a decently sharp edge to cut through the wind, but not as much comparing them to a Distance Driver. This aero-dynamic airfoil on the disc allows for the speed to increase and thus resulting in a potential farther throw. Find your Discmania Fairway Driver that suits you best!
