The Star Roadrunner Is one of the sweetest control distance drivers to ever grace the disc golf world. The plastic, for one, is incredibly grippy, allowing you to sink your thumb into it and really push on the plastic for torque. It`s stability is deceptive because it`s designed as an understable driver but will essentially do just about whatever you ask it to, from hyzer to anhyzer, from straight to turnover. It`s versatility is nothing short of phenomenal. It`s not the fastest driver out there but it is very fast. Whatever it lacks in speed, it seems to make up for in glide. In fact, for most players in the medium torque range, nothing will glide better.
Try it on super tight, tree-lined straight drives in the 300-380 range and watch how easily it releases and flows out of your hand straight down the fairway nestling up just a few feet from the pin. Throw it towards the sky on an anhyzer angle and aim it higher than you think you can throw. It will soar to the clouds and turnover, gravity pulling it forward as it pulls it down, leveling out about 10 feet from the ground and soaring forward towards the target. Even in the lighter weights, it`s ability to resist a turn is amazing. As long as the wind is favorable to non-exsistent, this disc will comply to your every demand. As the wind kicks up it can be used for all manner of turnover shot. As the wind gets steady to strong, move up to a more stable driver.
The Star plastic will last an incredibly long time, breaking in slowly and gracefully.
Available in a wide variety of colors. 150-175 grams although, right now, they are hard to find under 160.
This disc earns the Editor`s Top Pick Award for best all around distance driver.
