The Octane is a high speed stable-understable distance driver. Octane falls in the general stability lineage of Switch, Amp, Inertia, and Wave, with a slow-turning profile that holds long and straight until its fade finish. The 23mm Octane is designed to be relatively less understable than its 21.5mm counterpart Wave. Average throwers should see straight flights with a bit of shallow turn, while power throwers will be able to hyzerflip for max distance and tailwind lines.
Flight Ratings: Speed 13, Glide 5, Turn -1, Fade 2
About the plastic: Plasma has a great feel in the hand, with a metallic-like sheen over the top of the core plastic. It is a semi-gummy & grippy blend with a little flex. Extremely durable and sometimes has some color-shift with some colors.
This disc is a great staple in my bag. It allows me to get good distance with control.
