We know how hard it can be to find the right disc and how valuable an in-person shopping experience can be. That’s why we created our website to feel like you’re getting that kind of in-person experience wherever you are! With double-checked weight, exact discs pics, and details of color, stamps, stiffness, flatness and flight charts, we are confident that you will be satisfied with your online shopping experience.

Are the pictures on your website the actual discs?

Yes, every photo of every disc on our site shows the exact disc. We also include the double-checked weight of each disc, and details like color, stamp, stiffness, flatness, with appropriate flight charts to give you the confidence and satisfaction of your online purchase.

Will you send me a disc in a weight that I did not order?

No. We understand the importance of weight when choosing discs to purchase. We package and ship only the exact disc(s) you order.

How can I tell what color disc I will receive?

The color of the disc you will receive is the color that matches the photo and description of the item you purchased. We work hard to provide a photo of each disc that shows the disc as it would look in your hands.

How do pre-orders work?

Our email subscribers and those who have joined our Gorilla Disc Golf Facebook Group will be first to be notified when we have a pre-order happening. Anyone will be able to find our pre-orders on our website once they’re up.

I want to buy a disc for someone else but I don’t know what they want. Can you help?

Yes! Our website offers free accounts for you (or someone else) to create a wishlist and add all of your favorite products. It’s sharable, so you can create one for yourself or have someone share theirs with you for easy shopping.

What do the flight numbers mean?

The Innova Flight Ratings System was designed as a way to describe a discs intended flight. Flight Ratings are broken into four main categories: Speed, Glide, Turn, & Fade. These characteristics can be used to rate various aspects of each disc’s flight. Each disc has a distinct “personality”; the flight path that makes that disc unique. Flight Ratings can be used to compare Innova golf discs to each other. Other companies have adopted a similar system, but it’s important to note that flight ratings shouldn’t be used to compare discs between brands since each company rates discs differently. We have over 90 disc models to satisfy a wide range of players and throwing techniques. To learn more about what each of these characteristics mean, refer to the descriptions below. Flight Ratings are based on right hand backhand (RHBH) throws.

SPEED 1 TO 14

Speed is the rate at which a disc can travel through the air. Speed 14 Distance Drivers are the fastest, having the PDGA maximum legal wing width. Faster discs cut into the wind with less effort and are best when throwing up wind. Slower discs take more power to throw upwind, but they’re easier to throw more accurately and may actually go farther downwind. High speed discs are not recommended for beginners as they require more power to fly properly.

GLIDE 1 TO 7

Glide describes the discs ability to maintain loft during flight. Discs with more glide are best for new players, and for producing maximum distance. Beginners wanting more distance should choose discs with more glide. Discs with less glide are more accurate in high wind situations.

TURN +1 TO -5

High Speed Turn is the tendency of a disc to turn over or bank to the right (for RHBH throws) during the initial part of the flight. A disc with a +1 rating is most resistant to turning over, while a -5 rating will turn the most. Discs rated -3 to -5 make good roller discs. Discs with less turn are more accurate in the wind. Discs with more turn are easier to throw for beginners.

FADE 0 TO 5

Low Speed Fade is the discs tendency to hook left (for RHBH throws) at the end of the flight. Fade is rated from 0 to 5. A disc rated 0 will finish straightest, while a disc rated 5 will hook hard at the end of the flight. High fade discs are usually used for Spike and Skip shots.

How does plastic affect the flight?

Plastics Affect Flight

Our different plastics can affect the flight ratings of our discs, especially the longer range drivers. Generally Champion and Glow Champion produce discs with less high speed turn than our other premium plastics like Star, GStar, and Driver Pro.

  • All of our Premium plastics like Star, GStar, Champion, and Driver Pro will retain their original flight characteristics for an extended period of time.
  • DX, XT, KC Pro, and R-Pro Plastic will change flight characteristics over time more quickly than our premium plastics. This is a desirable trait for some people who will carry the same model in multiple stages of wear to get different flights for different situations while throwing the same mold.
What does Stability, Understable, Stabe, and Overstable mean?

Brief Description of Terms

  • Stability is a description of the disc’s flight path.
  • Understable means a flight that turns right (RHBH throw).
  • Stable is a flight that doesn’t turn.
  • Overstable refers to a flight that turns left (RHBH throw).
