  • Speedi 11

    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 -5

    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 1

    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 Innova Champion Mamba is an understable high speed distance driver. It's a unicorn, so many distance drivers are stable and most are overstable. But this disc gives you a wide rim and lots of glide, and a chance to have a disc that slowly turns for a long time instead of turning and burning into the ground. The Mamba is a favorite of players who may struggle with forehand distance but still want something for long turnovers and drives that need to hold an anhyzer line. It does have a wide rim and a flatter top, but don't let that fool you, it's still going to carry a long way.

The flight path of the Innova Mamba is going to be straight right out of the hand and then it's going to start turning quickly. This disc is designed to carry and turn at the same time. Throw it high on anhyzer for it to hold and hold and hold that turnover where your other discs would stall and hyzer out. The Mamba is not your max distance driver, and there may be rounds where you don't need it. But when you pull it out you can expect it to be flippy every time for you. It's a great utility disc for a player with lots of experience. Newer players can use this as their S shot driver and get max distance from it. As you increase your skill you can find plenty of different uses for the Mamba.

Champion blend plastic is a great choice for the Mamba. It's a premium blend that offers players something that they can use for years, it's not going to chip and lose its flight characteristics the first time you hit a tree. It's also going to be the most stable right out of the box so it may hyzer a little bit the first few times you throw it.

The Champion Mamba is made for those fast turning shots, it's going to need some power to get going but then it's going to hold those turnovers the whole time. It's a great utility disc for folks with slightly faster arms, slower arms will love this disc for its incredible S curve ability and high glide.
