  • Speedi 12

    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 -3

    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

    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 Z Line Thrasher Disc Golf Distance Driver is an understable maximum distance choice for players of the advanced skill level. It's got huge turn with a good hyzer finish, and packs a lot of glide into this wide rim disc.

The flight path of the Thrasher is going to be straight then a lot of high speed turn, finally a long forward part and a slow glide hyzer to finish. What separates the Thrasher from many other discs at high speed is how easily it turns over for a 12 speed. It really wants to flip over and ride that anhyzer for a bit. For players with big arms the Thrasher can be a turnover driver that holds anhyzer the whole flight or they can release on anhyzer for a super roller disc. The Thrasher just needs plenty of room in an open field for it to swing side to side to work. It's an excellent forehand or backhand disc that's going to help lift your distance drives up.

Z Plastic from Discraft is known for its premium durability. You're going to be ripping the Thrasher at high speeds and it's possible you hit a tree with it. It's great to have a blend that's not going to crack, chip, or gouge the first time you hit a rock or tree. Z line plastic lasts for a long time and is an investment into your game. It costs more than the baseline plastic but it's worth it if you want the same flight characteristics for a long time. The grip is solid year round, and it won't get floppy and flippy on a warm day.

The Z line Thrasher from Discraft was designed to give you good distance, have high speed turn, and be useable by advanced and pro players. Check out one of these discs for a big arm player and see how far you can go.
