  • Speedi 7

    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 -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 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 Star IT is an understable high glide fairway driver that's semi domey. It's great at holding understable drives, having a slight S curve for slow arm players, and can be hyzer flipped or used as a roller disc by advanced skill players. It's got a small rim so it fits perfectly in the hands of folks with smaller hands. But that does make it harder to throw for a sidearm or forehand shot. The IT which stands for Innova Tech is something you can pull out when you want a shot that carries a ways and won't hyzer out on you.

 

The flight path of the IT is super glidey. The first time you throw it you can see how it's going to flip early in the flight without turning and burning. Give this disc a little extra height when you're throwing it so it has more time to turn and kind of flatten out at the end instead of hyzering. The IT will be something you pull out of your bag on those long par 3's or short par 4's when you want something to turn and hold it before panning out to flat at the end of the flight. Woods players will enjoy ripping the IT because it can be hyzer flipped for long tunnel shots, or you can shot shape with it and get a straight throw for a moment before it flips up and over. The IT is something that can be thrown on those 150-300 foot shots.

 

Star plastic from Innova is a premium blend that offers players excellent grip and supreme durability. It's what the top players on Team Innova throw when they're on the Disc Golf Pro Tour because it works, all the time and all over the country. It's what you'll find players at your local course throwing as well, because it beats in slowly over time and comes in so many different weights and colors. Star plastic is a perfect choice for the IT because you are going to be ripping this disc in the woods and you will hit trees. It won't immediately become flippy when you hit a couple obstacles.

 

The Innova Star IT fits in a little gap in the Innova lineup. It's going to have that high glide and low speed turn you look for in a fairway driver, but it's' also going to carry forward at the end of the flight instead of holding that anhyzer the whole way.
