Innova’s highest Speed disc, the Colossus is surprisingly the most intermediate-friendly wide-rim driver we’ve tested, allowing a wide range of players to take advantage of the disc’s high rotational intertia….but without the distance-killing “overstable crash.”
Flight Rating Analysis:
|Wide Rim Driver (2.5cm rim – the max allowed by the PDGA)||High Glide; keeps disc in-flight longer||Balanced Stability||Moderate hook at end of flight|
Why Champion Plastic?
Champion is not only Innova’s most durable plastic (helping it to survive direct tree hits as maximum speed!), it is also the most Overstable, further enhancing predictability.

Cert. # 99-06
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 the Colossus, providing maximum control and wind-resistance.
“The Colossus is a max distance driver with predictable high speed turn and reliable fade. Although it has a wide rim, it is also relatively easy to hold and throw both backhand and forehand. If you’ve wanted to throw a really fast driver, but couldn’t quite handle the wide rim, try the Colossus.” Source
