  • Speedi 4

    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 3

    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 -2

    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 2

    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 Hawk 2022 Ledgestone disc is a disc golf midrange that is understable and offers lots of high glide options. The Hawk has a large bead and has a little lip on the wing. You're going to love how far it can glide with little power. The stamp for this disc features a hawk built into the lettering. It's simple, it's clean, it's awesome.

The flight path of the Hawk depends a lot on how you release the disc. Thrown level you'll see some early turn with lots of forward glide and a fade back at the end. This is an S curve disc and many beginner players will like it for that. Advanced players will love throwing this disc on a hyzer or anhyzer angle to have it hold the line while not being thrown quickly. The Hawk is more of a backhand disc than a forehand disc, sidearm shots with it will be touch shots and not for distance. The Hawk can excel in the woods where you need it to shot shape and out in the wide open field as well. This disc was a favorite of former touring pro and 3X World Champion Nate Doss when he was winning titles.

Big Z Plastic from Discraft is a premium blend. It's a little softer to touch than Z line and it's still very durable. It kind of flies like a beat in Z line disc and offers slightly more grip. It's an excellent choice for the Hawk because you're not throwing this as hard as your driver. It's going to beat in and glide even more the more you use it.

The Discraft Big Z Hawk 2022 Ledgestone Open disc is a special disc that fundraises for the 2022 Ledgestone Open. It's a huge tournament and some of the money goes from your purchase to support the winners. So if you're looking for a mold that throws in the 50-250 foot range, can be thrown on multiple lines, and supports fellow disc golfers, you've found it!
