  • 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 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 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 4

    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 2022 Tour Series Champion Glow Zackeriath Johnson Firebird is an incredibly overstable disc. It straddles the line between distance driver and fairway driver. You're going to be throwing this glow in the dark disc because you're looking for the ultimate control shot.

The flight path of the Firebird is going to be straight for as long as it has power, then it will start hyzering or fading out and get down to the ground. The 3 rating for glide is because this disc isn't meant to stay in the air that long, it goes where you throw it and then it gets down to the ground. The Firebird is a choice disc for skilled forehand players and backhand players alike. It's useful for flex shots, skip shots, driving into headwinds, and for those shots where you need something that starts out straight and ends up hooking around a corner. If you like the flight path of overstable approach discs but you want something that travels further, snag a Firebird. This disc is designed for the advanced or professional player in mind, and it's not going to get you as much distance as almost any other driver. You won't flip this disc over if you throw it level, it can handle the power from even the top distance throwing pro players in the game.

Glow Champion plastic is a premium blend from Innova that offers players a slightly more grippy and flexible champion blend. Charge it up with a flashlight and play in the dark, or bring it out in the sun and it's great too. It's got great durability and you want that since you'll be throwing shots that may hit obstacles.

Let the disc do the work. The Firebird has a natural hyzer to it, so embrace it and don't be afraid to power it up. This disc isn't just special because it's going to be your go to on controlled shots, it's also awesome because it's the Tour Series disc for Zackeriath Johnson. Support him as he tours the US playing disc golf. Get a highly sought after disc that feels a little tacky in the hand and help out a fellow disc golfer.
