  • Speedi 13

    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 -1

    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 3

    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. ×

Flight path

Release angle

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 Star Boss 2021 Alex Russell Tour Series Disc Golf Distance Driver is an amazing high speed disc that can handle your crushing capabilities. This is Alex's Tour Series disc, and just like last season he's kept the artwork minimal, letting the Boss be the star.

The flight path of the Boss is straight right out of the hand, you'll need lots of power to get this disc to work. If you're throwing 350+ feet this is an excellent choice. After the disc starts to lose some steam it will begin to hyzer out. If you're throwing this disc less than 350 feet it's going to hyzer almost right out of your hand. With the wide rim and flat top, this disc is perfect for skip shots. Make sure to leave a little extra room for your disc to skip when it lands. The Boss can handle the extra torque put on it by forehand players, and it works very well as a backhand disc as well. It's a step up in speed from the Destroyer, so if you find you're flipping that disc consider a Boss for your bag.

Star Plastic is a premium blend from Innova. It's durable and can last for years but it still beats in well. It's grippy and the choice for most top level pros as their driving plastic.

This disc is part of the Innova Tour Series. The Tour Series helps players on Team Innova as they tour the US competing in disc golf tournaments. You get an amazing disc that you can throw for years, and a substantial amount of your purchase goes to Alex so he can tour. It's a win-win!

If you're looking for an overstable distance driver that can handle long crush shots, flex shots, skips, and more, then get yourself one of these Alex Russell Bosses while they're still available!
