  • Speedi 1

    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 2

    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 -4

    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 0

    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 DX Sonic is a very unique disc in the Innova disc golf putt & approach lineup. It's technically a putter but it's going to be much more useful as an approach disc that handles very creative flight paths. This disc has been around since 2007 and has been a hit ever since. The Sonic is useful for players of all skill levels and is a great choice from 5 to 150 feet.

The flight path of the Sonic depends on how you throw it. As an understable disc it has a tendency to turn over even at slower speeds. When thrown slowly and with high spin rate it can be a straight flyer. Why people bag the Sonic is that it can hold the slow hyzer or can hyzer flip. This disc is a favorite of Garrett Gurthie who brought it back to prominence a couple years ago. You can sling the Sonic through trees and put it on very unusual lines. For example you can start it on a hyzer and have it flip up and turn over, very few discs can do that and slowly land around the basket. It's a backhand only disc, forehand or sidearm players will struggle with the deep rim. The Sonic has a learning curve, but players who love it will find a utility disc that can get them out of some of the tightest spots. Players often compare this disc to an ultimate frisbee in flight path.

DX plastic from Innova is their baseline plastic. It's great for putters because those nicks and dings you get on the edge give you a little more grip. DX comes in many weight and color choices. It's a great choice for the Sonic because you want something you can grip and really depress your thumb into. It will beat in slowly because you're throwing the Sonic with touch and not a lot of power.

The DX Sonic is a great utility disc to get you around obstacles and to have high glide and no fade to the flight. It's a great choice for sneaking through gaps and all your slow shot needs. Grab one of these today and see why people love throwing them.
