The Discraft Mantis is a stable Fairway Driver that's reliable and beginner friendly. It was first released in the 2013 Ace Race in Titanium plastic. The disc is a striaght flyer with great glide. It has a low profile that is slightly domey providing what we believe is more than a rating of 4 in the glide category. The excellent part about the Mantis is even if your form is not fully locked in and the disc is not thrown flat out of your hand, this disc does a great job of correcting itself in flight.
Speed: 8 | Glide: 4 | Turn: -2 | Fade: 2 | PDGA Approved
Another disc from Discraft that is suited for the beginners due to the great stability in the disc. It provides great glide with a slight turn and fade at end of flight. The ability to fix poor throws and make them look perfect is why it's a young players dream disc. Nobody is ever perfect and we all need help sometimes.
