The Discraft Undertaker was released in 2016 in the summer with an overstable flight. It offers some turn and at the end of flight tapers off to the left with the gradual fade. The Undertaker is excellent when throwing into a headwind and offers a great flight for forehand throwers. Paul McBeth has solidified the Undertaker as an excellent disc for forehand shots with his signature series being in the TI line.

Who Bags the Discraft Undertaker
The one, the only, Paul McBeth bags currently 3 Undertakers in his bag. One of them, the First Run Signature Series he pulls out more than not for straight flying shots. The ability to keep a straight flight for over 400+ feet is hard to come by. This disc does exactly that for him, but what about people without his arm-speed? Beginners find great comfort throwing this disc due to the stability.
The Discraft Undertaker is an excellent disc no matter your skill level. If your searching for a little more overstable disc, go with one of the Elite Z lines, but for understable flights go with the Pro-D or ESP.
