  • Speedi 13

    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 5

    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 -1

    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 3

    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 Discraft Big Z Nuke is a fantastic distance driver that is a great blend of power and control. It's got high glide, reliable fade, and is best thrown by players who regularly throw 350+ feet. It's a great choice for forehand or backhand players because it handles the torque of a sidearm throw without flipping over.

The flight path of the Nuke is going to be stable to overstable with a little bit of high speed turn and a long fade. If you can get some turn out of the Nuke you'll probably make this your go to distance driver. It's got a long slow fade at the end of the flight, so it won't dive into the ground like other overstable discs. You can release this disc on anhyzer and it will be a flex shot disc but it's always going to find a way to fight back to hyzer even when flying into a strong head wind. This disc is popular with many touring pros for Team Discraft and it's a great choice for players who have bigger arms or want a flex disc.

Big Z Plastic from Discraft is a premium blend that offers durability like Z line does, but it's softer and a little more flexible. Think of this disc flying like a beat in Z line disc, so you get a little bit more turn out of the disc early. It's a great choice for those who want a little more grip and don't want to break in a Z line disc.

The Nuke has a small dome to it and the moment you get it into your hand you know this is a disc that can handle 100% of your power for maximum distance. It's meant to soar through the sky and get you down the fairway with a consistent hyzer finish. If you're looking for something you can trust on the disc golf course, get a Discraft Big Z Nuke.
