These discs all run about the same speed and require similar arm speed and snap to work effectively.
As a matter of fact, these discs may fill in for one another on the same relatively straight precision drives.
The difference is in the flight path they use to get to the target.
The Sidewinder has the ability to perform a beautiful S-turn on it`s way to the target.
Basically, it turns over some early in the flight, straightening out past the halfway point and fading back to a hyzer for the last 15-20% of the flight.
When the fairway demands a shot with multiple turns but a fairly straight outcome, this disc does it surprisingly, and sometimes shockingly, well.
As is typical, the heaviest weights are pretty stable and will take a good amount of torque or a some headwind to get it to perform as mentioned above. The lower the weight, the easier it will be to get the intended action out of the disc, but the more vulnerable it will be to the wind.
Overall, this is an excellent, accurate, distance disc that`s valuable enough to be one of the Editor`s Top Picks in the long range driver category.
The Champion version is a little less stable than the other types out of the box, but it lasts practically forever, so it takes a long time to beat in for more turnover.
Once it does though, it`s practically invaluable. We recommend breaking in more than one so you`ll have some back-ups.
If you`re relying on this heavily and you lose it, your score will suffer a major setback.
Available in a full range of colors. 150-175 grams.
