  • Speedi 9

    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 4

    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 Captain's Raptor was made for an overstable flight that you need for high power shots. This disc was created to make a reliable distance driver in headwind situations and to handle the extreme torque of pro player forehands. It was developed with the help of Paul Ulibarri the captain of Team Discraft. The main difference between the Captain's Raptor and the Discraft Raptor is the shape of the flight plate. The Captain's Raptor has less dome and is more flat. It has a slight indent in the top of the wing that creates a little groove for your thumb.

The flight path of the Captain's Raptor is straight and then hyzer once it runs out of power. It's a great choice for flex shots because you know it will always come out of the anhyzer release. This is a great utility choice and can be used any time you need to pull something reliable out of the bag. The fade on the Captain's Raptor is going to be dramatic, and because it doesn't have as much glide it's going to get down to the ground quickly. It will skip some, but not as much as a wide rimmed driver like a Force. This will lead to very precise shot shaping, and makes the Captain's Raptor a great choice in the woods or in a field. Placement is key, and you'll be doing just that with your Capt. Rap.

The Captain's Raptor is a special blend of premium plastic that's very close to Z Line. You want something that's durable and going to maintain its flight characteristics for a long time, and this is it.

The Captain's Raptor isn't designed for every skill level or every shot. It's definitely for players of intermediate ability or higher, and it's going to be a go to when you need something overstable. These discs are very good at what they do, see if one fits into your bag.
