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 GStar Sidewinder is an understable distance driver that offers players of all skill levels lots of glide and turn. It's a great choice for folks who are looking to learn a forehand because this disc will hyzer flip or have a long S curve when thrown flat. As a backhand disc this can be overpowered and turned into a roller by players who are advanced in skill level or have big arms. As a 9 speed it's throwable by almost any player.
The flight path of the Sidewinder depends a lot on what angle you throw it. It's got a small rim that's easy to grip and rip backhand, and if you do that expect lots of turn. The Sidewinder is popular with woods players because everyone needs something that has the ability to be thrown slow and still shot shape. Throw this disc low and watch it glide with minimal side to side, or you can bust this out high in the open field and make it a long distance bomber. The Sidewinder is a great disc to learn angle control with, especially if you're looking to learn the hyzer flip or roller angles.
GStar plastic from Innova is very soft and grippy. In cold or wet weather it's an excellent choice so you have a more grippy plastic and one that isn't as stiff. In the summer it's going to be extra soft in the heat and will become even more understable. GStar works all year round, but you'll want it for sure as the leaves drop.
The Innova GStar Sidewinder is an excellent 9 speed disc. It's not too fast, not too slow, it fits into most players bags quite easily. If you're looking for something that feels familiar the second you grab it, and comfortable to throw, you've found it in the GStar Sidewinder.
