  • Speedi 8

    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 -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 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. ×

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 Innova Champion TL3 is an amazing fairway driver that's perfect for throwing straight. Players who can throw 200 feet or more will find this disc is an absolute must to have in their bag. TL stands for tight lines, and that's exactly what you'll hit when you throw this disc.

The flight path for the TL3 is straight. The -1 turn is barely noticeable when thrown. The 1 fade at the end is also something that you won't think is that big. What makes this disc special is the way that it flies straight, and that is has a glide rating of 4, not 5 or 6. This means that your TL3 isn't going to soar past the landing zone. Think of it as a point and shoot throw, aim right where you want this disc to land and it will stick there. It doesn't matter if you're a backhand or sidearm thrower, right out of the box this disc will fly straight. It's an 8 speed disc, so that means you don't need to be a big arm to throw it. The TL3 is perfect from 200-325 feet, after that the disc will begin to turn and be flippy. No disc will fly straight forever, but the TL3 is great for those shots that are just too long for a mid.

Champion Plastic is the most durable offered by Innova. It's generally heavier than star or dx plastic, but you won't find chips in your disc when you hit a tree or chains. It will still fly well in the summer when it's hot and other discs become floppy in the heat. Champion plastic is great for drivers because you want to be confident when you throw that you won't damage your disc.

If you're looking to take your disc golf game to a new level, and have a straight flying disc that's further than your mid range then be sure to look at the Innova Champion TL3. You'll be shocked you can throw this straight.
