The Discraft Heat will be recognizable from a massive dome shape on the disc providing insane amounts of glide. This helps beginners tremendously along with strong-arm throwers the ability to allow for perfect form. Being a Hybrid Driver or Fairway Driver it fits in anyone's hand with ease being a slightly smaller rim than normal. For beginners, you can see the Heat fly straight flying discs. For Experts, it’s perfect for turnover rollovers. It’s a perfect disc to throw consistent anhyzer lines.
Speed: 9 | Glide: 6 | Turn: -3 | Fade: 1 | PDGA Approved
We cannot say it enough, if you like domey discs, the Heat is 100% for you and don’t even think about looking anywhere else. The large dome makes the disc very beginner-friendly as it helps stabilize the disc and provide massive glide. Why doesn’t every disc just have a massive dome then? Well with any action there will be a re-action. Just like this, when you put a dome on a disc, it will slow it down, so the ability to get a massive throw is just not possible. Were ok with this, because it’s a Fairway Driver, not a Distance Driver! The control you obtain by the dome fully surpasses the distance you might get from a non-domey disc.
A Fairway Driver normally works well in many plastic types so Discraft knows this and you guessed it, provides almost every plastic imaginable for the Heat. It doesn’t hurt that the disc is widely purchased on the market, but we might never see this disc become a signature or special disc since it’s more for beginners opposed to experienced players. Here are the current offerings for the Discraft Heat:
- Pro D Heat - $7.99
- Elite X Heat - $10.99
- Elite Z Heat - $13.99
- Big Z Heat - $13.99
- Z FLX Heat - $13.99
- ESP Heat - $14.99
- Titanium Heat - $14.99
- Z Fly Dye Heat - $16.99
A member of Team Discraft, Courtney Pixie Cannon bags the Elite Z plastic as a staple for Disc Golf. Easily controllable turnover or straight shots will fly 325-350 with ease. Courtney also uses it for sidearm when looking for a hyzer shot needing it to finish anhyzer that provides approximately 275-300 ft. Wes Shinevar is another Team Discraft member who finds the disk one of a kind. He sees this understable fairway driver with a lot of glide help shape shots in the forest. It's his go-to disc to fulfill the understable part of his bag.
Here is what Discraft has to say about the disc:
The Heat™ debuted as the 2014 Ace Race proto and quickly caught fire with players for its control, glide and distance at slower arm speeds. It has a smaller rim for easier grip, and is being hailed as a breakthrough in delivering improved distance for new and developing players.

WHO BAGS THE DISCRAFT Heat
As we previously touched on, this disc is not equipped for expert disc golfers, however, we did find a professional Disc Golfer on the Core Team of Discraft who puts the Discraft Heat in his bag, specifically the Z FLX Heat.
From Grant Brittian who resides from Pinellas Park, FL PDGA #61851: “I like this disc for my straight to turnover fairway drivers. I like the Z Flex plastic, I find it to be a slight bit more stable. I use this for tight shots that I need more distance than a Buzzz on. I carry two. .”
As you can see with his response, the disc is actually a little too stable for his liking, but for a person who doesn’t have the arm strength like many professionals do, it flies like an overstable disc they throw!
One of the best midranges I’ve ever thrown, it has a great flight and I think is one of the longest midranges in the game. Has that dead straight flight but has a good amount of torque resistance and a nice little fade at the end of the flight.
Love this disc! It’s a bomber! You can hyzer flip it for days! Been getting my longest throws with this disc.
They are always great I love all the different styles I collect them all the colors are fantastic
I ordered a mystery disc, and got a prodogy ace line d us .. liked it and ordered another mystery disc just to get the exact same disc.. not sure if that happens a lot but it makes me contemplate a third order! Love the discs though
Bushwhackin through every course with my captain raptor makes me feel just like my fav pro Paul Ulibarri. If its not in the bush, you’re not a captain.
Again I got my order and the super color buzz was on point. I’ve never been disappointed with anything I’ve ordered from your store and I’ve ordered quite a few mystery boxes.
Awesome selection discs, overall well rounded distribution of stability and speed. Will definitely buy another box!
Buzzz Supercolor (Love at First Ace)
This disc is a option for an overstable midrange, and in this plastic it is even better. It is both durable and with a decent grip!
It made my day when I received it
I parked it on my first throw with it on about a 430 ft hole
This disc is sick
Really love the Paradox, nice under stable disc and great for a short roller when needed!!!
Great overstable mid range.
