  • Speedi 10

    The first number is the speed of the disc. It can range from 1-14. Putters are rated 1-3 and are designed to function at low speeds any player can use. Mid range discs are 4-5 and require more speed when thrown to achieve their desired results. A fairway driver will be speed 6-8, these discs fly mostly straight. Discs that are speed 9 and above are classified as distance drivers. Throwing a distance driver takes a significant amount of power to get up to speed, players are rewarded with additional distance if they learn to control these discs. New players are cautioned that speed does not equal distance. Due to the difficulty of controlling higher speed discs, a beginner could find that a light weight disc with a speed of 6 or 7 could fly farther for them than a max distance driver with a speed of 13. In fact most new players should learn by throwing putters only so they can develop the proper form. After a few weeks they'll begin to get reliable results and are ready ×

  • glidei 6

    This second rating is numbered 1 – 6. Glide describes a disc’s ability to remain in flight. Discs with higher glide ratings will fly further than discs rated lower in this category. A high glide rating is good when the goal is distance, but can have the wrong effect for putts and approach shots. Sometimes overshooting the basket can be worse than not making it far enough. Low glide ratings such as 1 or 2 are popular with upshot putters because they don't fly for distance but for a little extra control. Glide is different for different kinds of discs as well. A putter with a glide of 4 will stay airborne much longer than distance drivers with a glide of 4 ×

  • Turni 0

    Third in Innova’s flight rating system is turn. Turn is rated from 1 to -5?, with -5 being the most understable. The lower the numer, the more striking turn will result. A newer, slower-throwing disc golfer using an understable disc with a ‘high’ negative turn rating will enjoy great distance, as the disc isn’t going to fade as quickly. Also, players whose farthest throw is 200 feet or less probably won’t notice any turn in the flightpath. Once a player gets more speed and power, they will see their understable discs start turning to the right at the beginning of the flight before fading to the left at the end. Discs rated -4 or -5 are popularly used for rollover or roller throws by experienced players. Some discs have 0 turn which means that they'll start to fade when they run out of speed during the flight and at no point will they turn. It's important to carry at least one disc with a high turn rating in your bag for rounds. ×

  • Fadei 3

    This last rating category ranges from 0 to 5; with a disc rated 0 being the straightest finishing, while a disc rated 5 fading the most during the last portion of the flight. Even discs rated lowest in turn will still ‘fade’ as the disc slows at the end of the flight. A disc with a higher fade rating is useful for a hole with a dogleg. Straight finishing discs are great for control, discs with little fade are normal. If you're a Right-hand backhand thrower you'll find that almost every disc wants to fade to the left at the end of your flight. Discs with a 4 or 5 fade rating are excellent in heavy winds. They sacrifice a little of the distance but make sure that the disc won't do anything unexpected. Discs with a low fade are more susceptible to being affected by the wind. ×

Product Description

The Discraft Big Z Anax Paul McBeth Disc Golf Distance Driver is an overstable disc that provides forehand or backhand players with excellent control and distance. As a glidey high speed driver you can expect this disc to take long slow hyzer finishes and be a workhorse in the open field or the woods.

The flight path of the Anax is straight with a slight hyzer feel to it. If released flat the Anax will start to lose speed about 60% of the way through the flight and begin its long slow hyzer finish. Because of the high glide you can expect a soft hyzer moving further to the side. This is a fantastic choice when you need a shot to go forward and then have a reliable finish at the end of the flight. It's a great choice for flex shots, skip shots, and any shot where you'd like to sacrifice a few feet of distance to make sure you're where you want to be and the end. The Big Z plastic gives these discs a little extra glide and less stability than other premium blends. So if you've found the Z line or ESP to be too overstable for your liking, give these a try.

Big Z plastic is a gummy premium blend. It's designed for extra grip and less stiffness. You can depress your thumb much deeper into the plastic and give it a little extra grip. It's still highly durable and a disc you can rely on for years but it will fly like a beat in disc right out of the box. 

The Big Z Anax from Discraft is trusted by amateur players all the way up to 5x World Champions like Paul McBeth. It's an overstable disc that will be flying up the fairway while under control for you. Snag one of these beautiful discs and start crushing your drives today.
