Why Opto Hex Technology?
The hex dimples on the disc a create a thin turbulent boundary layer of air that clings to the disc’s surface.
This reduces the size/power of the dragging vortex of air that forms behind discs, allowing them to maintain their flight speed for longer before slowing.
Recommended Weights: 160-176g
This range of weights provides player flexibility — from longer and faster at the lighter end of the range, to max-control as you approach 176g.
160-164g: This lighter class provides the best distance potential, enhancing Glide for extra long flights.
165-169g: Provides balanced performance, giving players the most versatility.
170-176g: This heavy weight-range provides maximum control and wind-resistance.
“Raketen (The Rocket) is an extremely fast long distance driver. The unique hexagon pattern makes the disc less affected by air drag and it will maintain its speed for a longer time compared to discs without HEX pattern. Raketen is a good choice for the average discgolfer looking for a disc with maximum speed.” Source
