  • Speedi 5

    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 -2

    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. ×

Product Description

The Innova DX Manta is an understable disc golf midrange that offers players a slow turning shot with low arm speed. It's a beveled edge mid that still has high glide so look for this disc to carry while it's got that anhyzer turn for most of the flight. The Manta has a large bead on the bottom as well.

The flight path of the DX Manta is going to be mostly straight for the first half of the flight, then the disc will flip over and ride the anhyzer angle until it pans out to flat and comes to rest. If you're struggling with a forehand this is absolutely a disc you should consider throwing because it won't fade out like many other discs. The Manta can be thrown on touch sidearm shots but it's going to require lots of practice to get good with that particular shot. Try the Manta in the woods where you need something slow to turn or for shot shaping as well. The range on this disc is about 100-250 feet, anything shorter and it won't have the energy and speed necessary to turn. Anything further than that and you'll find the Manta won't be a moderate turn, but a cut roller.

DX plastic from Innova is their baseline blend. It's excellent for the Manta because you're throwing this disc with finesse, not ripping it into trees down the fairway. It will get little dings in the smooth finish to give you extra grip when you're throwing.

The Manta came around in 2017 and it fit that spot where people need something for holding a slow anny shot the whole way. It's a disc that doesn't take a lot of power to get going and can be thrown by experienced players or new players alike. See why you want something slow and understable in your bag by picking up a Manta today!
