  • 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. ×

Product Description

The Innova Halo Star Roadrunner is an understable distance driver with plenty of glide. You'll get lots of early turn in the flight, with glide, and a little bit of a flattening out at the end of the flight instead of a hyzer. The Roadrunner features an awesome bird on the stamp, and the classic outer colored ring that gives Halo it's name. If you're familiar with Innova Roadrunner discs in a different plastic, the Halo one is much more stable.

Halo discs are different for flight characteristics than other Innova Star Discs. You'll find that Halo makes them much more stable right out of the box. This won't be a roller the first time you throw it, it's going to beat in more slowly too, as it's a durable plastic. These Roadrunners want to be thrown hard and flat so they can begin to turn and hold that for most of the flight. Then pan out and land. If you throw the Halo Roadrunner on an anhyzer angle, you'll find that it's going to hold for most of the flight but it might not flip over until you've seasoned it. For folks who enjoy an understable disc with a smallish rim for a 9 speed, it's a great choice.

Halo plastic is the most stable of the Innova discs plastics. It's going to take a long time to beat in, and is the most expensive because of the labor intensive process to make these wonderful Innova Roadrunners.

Have you experienced a disc that's too flippy right away? Have you thrown a Roadrunner and said "I wish this would hold a little longer before flipping over."? Get this disc in the Halo plastic and be amazed at what it can do for you.
