Why Champion Plastic?
Discs specifically designed for Overstable flight (like the Ape) are best paired with durable plastics that will maintain Overstable flight for the longest period of time. Champion is not only Innova’s most durable plastic, it is also the most Overstable, further enhancing predictability.
Recommended Weights: 160-175g
160-164g: This lighter class provides the best distance potential, but has the least wind-resistance.
165-169g: Provides balanced performance, giving players the most versatility.
170-175g: The heaviest available weight range for Champion Apes, providing maximum control and wind-resistance.
“The Ape can handle the raw, primal power of disc golfs biggest arms. Extremely fast and stable, the Ape is a “must have” distance driver for windy conditions and sharp doglegs. Sidearm drivers will learn the Ape is more than capable of standing up to even the most intense torque. The Ape is an outstanding choice for backhand or sidearm throws as well as a variety of niche flex shots. With less high speed turn than a Boss, the Ape is not recommended for players who throw less than 300ft.” Source
