The Buffalo, offered in Daredevil’s Grip Performance Plastic, is a more beginner friendly overstable wind driver offered in weights in the mid 160s (grams). Out of the box, it offers even more Turn than the Sabertooth and Mammoth, with the predictable Fade at the finish.
Flight Rating Descriptions
SPEED Speed is the ability of the disc to cut through the air. Speed Ratings are listed from 1 to 13. Discs with high numbers are faster. Faster discs go farther into the wind with less effort. Slower discs take more power
to throw, but have less of a chance
to fly past the basket.
GLIDE Glide describes the discs ability to maintain loft during flight. Discs with more glide are best for new players, and for producing maximum distance (especially downwind). Glide is rated from 1 to 7. Beginners looking for more distance should choose discs with more glide.
TURN High Speed Turn is the tendency of a disc to turn over or bank to the right (for righthand backhand throws) during the initial part of the flight. A disc with a +1 rating is most resistant to turning over, while a -5 rating will turn the most. Discs rated -2 to -5 make good roller discs.
FADE Low Speed Fade is the discs tendency to hook left (for righthand backhand throws) at the end of the flight. Fade is rated from 0 to 5. A disc rated 0 will finish straightest, while a disc rated 5 will hook hard at the end of the flight. Discs with a high fade rating are predicable even in wind.
The Buffalo or Bison is also known as the American buffalo. The adult commonly grows to 2 meters tall or more. It has long shaggy hair if they inhabit colder regions and the bison in the warmer climates have shorter hair. The buffalo is considered to be the largest land mammal still in existence in North America, where the natural habitat ranged from Canada to Mexico. Before the settlers arrived in North America in the 1800s there were approximately 60 – 100 million buffalo inhabiting the area.
