  • Speedi 9

    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 -4

    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 GStar Roadrunner is a very understable 9 speed driver that offers players lots of glide, and potentially a roller to get through those low ceiling holes.

The Roadrunner has been a favorite of players for years for its versatility and utility as an understable disc. You can hyzer flip the Roadrunner for long shots with lower speed arms. Or you can toss it flat for that long turnover shot and it won't really fade back. One reason that people throw the Roadrunner is how on anhyzer you can lay it onto the ground and have the disc become a controlled roller disc. It's unlikely that you'll use the Roadrunner as your primary driver, but you'll always need that golf shot where you have to hold an anhyzer for a long time and this is a perfect disc to do that with. Players who are able to throw in the 200-250 foot range will find this disc to be a great choice for S curves and that it may be their longest distance disc. As a roller you'll get incredible distance from this disc but lose a little accuracy when you throw it. Try out all of the shots with the Roadrunner, it's a great scramble tool when you have a weird lie or a drive that hit much shorter than you expected.

GStar plastic from Innova is a very grippy plastic that's a little softer than premium blends like star or champion. It's going to give you a little more of a seasoned flight right out of the box. It's what players can rely on year round in their bag because it won't stable up as much in the cold weather.

The GStar Roadrunner is an excellent disc that gives you so many options. Roll it, throw turnovers, hyzer flip it, and get yourself up and down with this versatile disc. You won't always throw the Roadrunner, but when you need it you'll be glad to have it.
