  • 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 4

    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 0

    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 Hailey King Halo Star Jay is a stable fairway driver that offers a very straight flight with the slight hyzer tail finish. A mid that's straight but still fades at the right time is something that every player needs to have in their bag for those 100-250 foot shots. This stamp features a jay bird with wings spread, it's on fire, it has a crown! It's a fantastic Tour Series stamp for the 2022 USWDGC winner.

The flight path of the Jay is stable with a lot of glide. There are a lot of 4 and 5 speed stable mids from Innova, but what separates the Jay from the Roc is that the Jay is designed to carry forward further before fading. And it has more torque resistance than the Mako3. The Jay can be thrown backhand with confidence, and forehand for some short touch shots. Use this disc when you want to float down the fairway at a low speed but still get long distance. The Jay is going to be your go to choice on Par 3's off the tee when you need a slow hyzer. It will also be a tunnel shot disc because you're not getting too much side to side movement.

Halo Star plastic from Innova is a premium blend. It's grippy, durable, and it's slightly more overstable than other plastics. So expect a hair more dump early on in the life of the disc. It's perfect for the Jay because you want something that won't be flippy after you inevitably hit a couple of trees or rocks. Throw the Jay with confidence no matter what obstacles are around your fairway.

The Halo Hailey Jay isn't just an awesome disc with a cool stamp. It's also a great way to support Hailey King as she travels the globe playing disc golf. Some of the money you spend on the disc gets back to Hailey to support her touring efforts. You get an awesome mid to help your game, and you get to help a disc golfer at the same time. Make sure you snag one of these while you can!
