  • Speedi 5

    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 2.5

    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. ×

The illustrated disc flight line is based on the manufacturer field testing results, during its development process. So, to level the playing field we chose to put a different spin on things for such visual illustrations. Sticking to the manufacturer's test results will offer you a good baseline for how that particular disc will fly.

Product Description

The Axiom Prism Proton Pyro Disc Golf Midrange is an overstable disc that's designed to fill a gap in the bag between approach disc and overstable driver. You can rely on the Pyro for all of your 100-200 foot stable needs. The outer rim is made from proton plastic but has been modified to keep the same gyro effect that will give you more stability and distance.

When released flat the Pyro will fly straight for a short distance, maybe the first 33% of the flight before it starts to kick in the fade and begin its fade out. It will flex out when released on an anhyzer at about halfway through the flight. The Pyro isn't going to be your furthest flying disc in your bag, and probably one of your shortest flying mids. It's designed to be overstable in the wind, and to get you slightly more distance than an overstable putter. If you're having trouble with other overstable discs like the Deflector you can enjoy a little extra forward glide with the pyro.

Axiom Prism Proton Plastic is the same durable proton plastic that you know but with a little twist. It may have a little bit of a burst look, may have metallic shards in the rim, or in the flight plate, or it may be completely clear. Proton plastic works well with discs you're throwing at high speed because it doesn't matter what it hits, it will keep that overstable flight. It's the choice of many team MVP pros for discs that may hit rocks or trees, because they know each week on tour it's good to go.

The Axiom Prism Proton Pyro is overstable, it's got a little bit of glide, and it's a fantastic disc for touch shots. With its durable plastic it's a fantastic choice. Make sure to click through all our available discs at Sabattus Disc Golf to get the Pyro that has the color and weight combination that you'll love.
