  • Speedi 11

    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 6

    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 -5

    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. ×

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 GStar Mamba is an understable high speed disc golf distance driver. It's got a flatter top than most high speed drivers which lets it turn over a little easier. This disc is going to be a max distance driver for slower arms or beginners. Advanced or experienced players who throw 300+ feet consistently will find this to be a great flippy disc.

The flight path of the Mamba depends a little bit on the angle of release. Flat it's going to turn out of the hand right away so make sure you give it lots of height so you can get full turnovers on your shots. When thrown on an anhyzer the Mamba will be a roller disc and get you under the tree branches and for good distance. On a hyzer this disc will flip up to flat, turn a little, and then hyzer out. It's a less stable version of other Innova discs like the Sidewinder and Roadrunner. The Mamba will help players who struggle with a forehand to have a high speed disc that turns over for the whole flight. It does still take some power to get this disc going, so it is recommended for players who throw over 250+ feet consistently.

GStar plastic from Innova is a very grippy and soft plastic. It's less stable out of the box when compared to Champion or Star plastic, so you'll get a little additional turn in your flight. Players love it for the extra grip it offers, and how in colder weather it doesn't get as firm and overstable. It's an excellent choice for your Mamba if you want something that's going to turn reliably every time you throw it.

The GStar Mamba belongs in your bag because it's easy to flip with medium power and it's something you can rely on to hold the whole time. It's a utility disc golf disc, but if you want to lower your golf score out on the course you need something like this. So snag on of the most understable distance drivers in the game and practice your turnovers with the GStar Mamba!
