Distance control with turnover shots was normally very difficult…..until the Glide, offering a rare aerodynamic package of superior understable turnover at relatively low release velocities.
The Glide is an EXCELLENT option for anhyzers and S-Shots on shorter holes or long approaches where a precise flight distance is more important than max-distance.
Flight Rating Analysis (converted by BDGD from Discraft System):
|Fairway Driver (1.5cm rim)||VERY High Glide||VERY Understable||Long, straight finish|
Recommended Weight: 160-174g
These weight classes provide an excellent combination of distance potential with wind-resistance, while also providing balance for the Glide’s natural high-glide performance.
160-166g: Maximizes Glide and release velocity, creating the farthest possible flights, but a lower level of wind-resistance
167-172g: Balanced performance, providing good distance balanced with good wind resistance and control.
173-174g: Maximizes control and wind-resistance.

Why Z-Line Plastic?
Z-Line is Discraft’s most rigid plastic, giving it the superior torque resistance for maximum flight consistency. For this reason, Z-Line is the most popular of all Discraft plastics with professional players.
“Great for beginners and pros too, the Glide™ is easy to throw… and just keeps going! Grab a Glide™ when you need a little more controlled distance, or a long turnover driver.” Source
