Katana Specifications vs. Average Driver
Why Champion Plastic?
Champion is Innova’s most durable plastic and provides slightly more overstable flight than Innova’s other plastics. With the Katana, Champion provides balanced stability, making it a highly versatile wide-rim driver.
“The Katana is built with the finesse thrower in mind. Recommended downwind driver. Hit the angle right and watch it bolt out of sight. The physical characteristics resemble a Boss with the flight characteristics of a Sidewinder on steroids. Master the technique of Katana and rule the course. Champion Katanas have slightly different flight characteristics at [13|5|-2|3].” Source
