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.
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.
