The Discraft Big Z Glide 2022 Ledgestone Disc is a fairway driver that offers players an understable disc with big distance. It's a great choice for if you don't have a forehand or backhand and need a disc that consistently flies on anhyzer. The stamp features a flying squirrel and a couple of acorns above it.
The flight path of the Glide is a long turnover that lasts most of the flight. Throw this disc flat and with power to get it to move on an anhyzer for most of the flight before it pans out. Throw the Glide nose up so that you get a little additional height, this will stop you from throwing the Glide into the ground. You can also release this on a hyzer flip to get great distance with little power. Maybe you're in jail in the woods and don't have room to step. This will be an excellent disc for that. Maybe you have to follow a fairway that turns the whole way, this is an excellent choice. It's not meant to be a max distance driver, but this disc does get easy distance and will hold and not flex back on you.
Big Z Plastic from Discraft is a premium blend. It's got all that strength and durability you need and expect, but it's also a little softer than Z line. It's slightly easier to grip and won't become overstable in cold or wet weather conditions.
The glide can help slower arm players develop a turnover shot with distance attached. It can help in tight wooded areas and doesn't require much speed to carry out its mission. This disc not only has a cool stamp and can give you additional utility in your bag, it also is a limited edition 2022 Ledgestone disc. Some of the money you use to purchase this disc goes to the winners of the 2022 Ledgestone Open. You support professional disc golfers and you get a sweet disc in return. Snag one of these today and see how the Glide will find its way into your bag.
