The Discraft Raptor is an overstable Fairway Driver with a very flat top. This disc is meant for the more advanced/experienced players with stronger arms. Beginners will struggle with the over stability in the Raptor.
Speed: 9 | Glide: 4 | Turn: 0 | Fade: 3 - PDGA Approved
This disc is an extremely new disc for the Discraft family approved by the PDGA in December of 2018. Its launch was hidden because it was launched the same exact time as the SOL and the Kong. I mean how can you compete with Paul’s disc?! The Raptor is an overstable Fairway Driver that can take any force you give it!
This new disc launched and has already been added into the Tour Series and Paul Ulibarri was lucky enough to get this as his disc. It’s just a matter of time that Discraft adds this great understable disc further into its plastic lines of ESP and Titanium or at least a Big Z! Here are the current offerings of the Raptor to date:
Here is what Discraft has to say about the disc:
Confidence is KING. This First Run Raptor driver has been a collaboration between our Team Discraft captain, Paul Ulibarri and our R&D guys. Driving into wind - check. Flex shots, Sidearm - check, check. The Raptor delivers the most confidence you've ever felt in a driver under 300ft. Make room in your bag, this just became a staple.

WHO BAGS THE DISCRAFT Raptor
So obviously Paul Ulibarri has been bagging his signature Tour Series Disc, but is there any other well-known core players that have been testing it out and getting it pushed into the there bag? Absolutely! Andrew Presnell has got the Elite Z plastic Raptor placed in his bag for those fairway drives.
It’s not necessarily the greatest disc for beginners, but intermediate and experts will absolutely love this driver as it’s so overstable. It provides a great straight flight out with minimal turn and not a terrible amount of fade at the end of flight. For beginners, if you are to start bagging this disc, make sure you're throwing it as an anhyzer shot as it will most likely meat hook you fast.
Awesome putter with fantastic glow. Eclipse 2.0 is some of the best glow plastic on the market.
I was figuring I was going to get junk they couldn’t sell. Was I pleasantly surprised. I’ll do this again! Thanks!
I got the mystery box with 5 discs. I loved all 5 of them. I would definitely make another purchase from this website.
This was a very nice mystery box, well worth the cost. Thanks
The disc came in perfect condition
I’m a little new to disc golf, and this was a fun cost effective was to get some cool new discs to try out!
Nice disc,good price,and arrived on time. Would shop with them again.
Great discs came from this box. Wish I got a better mix of drivers, theyre all 173s.
Love picking my disc and weight the shipping is always quick 10/10 would buy from again
In my opinion, Axiom Eclipse 2.0 is the best glow plastic. This disc glows really bright for a very long time.
Love the zone and Glo is great.
It was awesome. Very pleased!
Great overstable approach disc. Fights the wind goes where you throw it. Looks super hot too!
Wish these were still in full production. Its nice to have a fairway driver thats as straight st this without as much fade and yet, will not turn over and without coming back. Need to get some more.
