Very similar performance to the Latitude64 XXX (but with more Speed), the Machete is optimized in every way for maximum control, wind resistance, and predictability.
The Machete is a superior option for hyzers, flex shots, overheads, or any shot thrown into high winds.
Flight Ratings and Analysis (Converted by BDGD to 4-Point System):
|Distance Driver (2.1cm Rim)||VERY Low Glide for extra wind-resistance and additional overhead distance.||VERY overstable and wind resistant (Discraft 2.2 – their highest rating for a Driver will less than max rim-width)||VERY high fade for distance control|
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.
Why 160-174g Weight?
These medium-to-heavy weight classes further accentuate the Machete’s wind resistance, distance control, and predictability.
“The low profile of Discraft Machete is built to slice through headwinds with unparalleled predictability. Use it with brute force to easily manage upwind shots, or more like a scalpel for on-demand placement precision on a hyzer or flex shot. A medium rim gives you more control and excellent hand-feel.” Source
