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 XCaliber is one of the most overstable discs in the game. No matter how hard you throw it, what headwind it faces, or however much anhyzer angle you put it on, it's going to hyzer back and fade out. This disc was designed for big bombs where you need to have the disc fade no matter what. It's a disc that big arms will love for all sorts of shots.
The flight path of the XCaliber (often referred to as the XCal) is straight for as long as it has high speed. Then it will slow and hyzer out. The XCal has a wide rim and will often skip once it hits the ground at speed, so leave it out a little wider than you might throw other discs. It's a perfect choice for flex shots and you can throw it as hard as you like without it flipping. It's not your go to maximum distance driver, but this disc is a utility disc and is super useful. Think of it as a domey Firebird that's a little bit longer in flight. It's definitely a disc that's meant for experienced players and those who throw 300+ consistently. The XCal is a supreme disc driver choice for forehand players who want something to handle the torque of a sidearm shot.
Champion plastic from Innova is a premium blend. It's the most durable and overstable plastic they make. It makes the perfect choice for the XCaliber because you're going to be throwing it hard and hitting trees and rocks. You'll want something that stays overstable for years to come.
This disc is handy when its windy, when you need a skip shot, or when you're looking for something overstable to mash on. The XCaliber is a disc you can trust to hyzer on every single throw you make with it. Try it out and see how useful the XCal is on your home course.
