The Discraft Surge SS is a more understable of the popular Surge. What's the difference between the two? The SS has a straighter edge and is "Super Straight" that provides enhanced control. It's a more beginner-friendly option for players to easily get the max distance out of the disc with relatively light arms. This disc is perfect for forehand and backhand drives.

The Surge SS is a Distance Driver that's more stable than it's brother, Surge. The SS standing for Super Straight or Super Stable provides an easier throwing experience for beginner players. If the original disc was too much for you, grab the SS as it will be sure to fit your needs. The straighter edge allows for a controllable at slower speeds that still goes a long way.
This disc hasn't taken off, but you might want to grab it off the shelf before Discraft discontinues it. With all the new releases, the Surge seems to be fading but has been a very popular disc in the past that might have the fate of dinosaurs and become extinct. Here are the current offerings of the Surge SS:
A Member of Team Discraft, Liz Carr enjoys using it as a controlled fairway driver and long anhyzer shots. She gets great flippy hyzer S shots just like the original Surge but doesn't need to force a powerful throw to obtain. If there is an obstruction where Liz cannot utilize her footwork she throws the Surge SS, but if a "running start" is available she uses the brother disc. Another member of Team Discraft, Barrett White likes the slightly sell overstable finish. It fits perfect for longer left to right curved shots that didn't require any adaptation to an entirely different profile.
Here is what Discraft has to say about the disc:
A max distance driver for players who don't have quite enough snap to maximize the original Surge's potential. The Super Straight Surge SS™ delivers all the glide that players have come to expect from a Surge,™ with a straighter edge to enhance controllability at slower speeds. Goes a long way with less effort!
