  • 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 -2

    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 2

    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 MVP Proton Inertia is an understable distance driver that has a flatter top. It's an excellent choice for players who are looking to fill that S Curve shot to their bag. MVP discs are well known for their gryo technology with the 2 piece disc. It has an outer rim that is black and slightly heavier than the clear flight plate. This gives your disc better gyroscopic flight and additional high speed stability.

The flight path for the Proton Intertia will be straight for a moment before it flips over and rides the anhyzer. Eventually the Inertia will stable up and flex back before fading out. This is an excellent disc to throw on hyzer flip shots for longer distances or to throw flat and with some height for a big S curve and lots of anhyzer. The Inertia does very well at 250+ feet. It can be thrown in the open field where it has time to swing side to side, or if you have lots of trees you can aim right at them and then anhyzer around the trees and back into the fairway. It's a unique shot shape, but you may need it in your bag. It's going to be a good versatile understable disc so you may want this for rollers on anhyzer as well.

Proton plastic from MVP is a durable premium blend. It's not going to change the flight characteristics as you hit a couple of trees with it. It's also the most overstable right out of the box so it may take time to become as understable as you are looking for.

The Proton Intertia is a disc that throwers control. If you want something for a hyzer flip this is a great choice. It's not as consistent as overstable discs but it's about finesse and learning how to hit your lines. Snag the Inertia for some effortless flips with your forehand or backhand shots.
