FD = Fairway Driver. Discmania sure makes it easy to understand, and throwing this disc is also easy. With great glide, easy control this is a versatile driver than can be used and enjoyed by players of all skills, and quickly became a favorite in The Frisbeer Guys bag.

First feel

This is the most popular fairway driver from Discmania, with a smaller rim and fairly flat top. The edge is rounded and the disc feels good for people with smaller hands like me.

The specs

  • Speed: 7
  • Glide: 6
  • Turn:  -1
  • Fade: 1

Discmanias first true Fairway Driver is also known as the Jackal. The FD is so controllable low-speed driver, that once you learn its magic you´ll never leave it out of your bag. Packed with gigantic glide, this bad boy is also sneaky long if thrown accordingly. The Jackal is at its best when you need to make an accurate drive and land smoothly on the fairway.

First flight

It is a stable to understable fairway driver, where the C-line plastic behaves the most stable. Due to the small rim this feels very comfortable off the tee, and gives a good feel of control in the hand. Throwing this is really rewarding from players of any level, as an amateur like me is going to appreciate the great glide and versability, while a pro can use it as a controllable hyzerflip disc. It does not handle strong winds very well, but it can be manipulated and controlled to get you where you need to be.

Summary

This is my most used driver, and I disc I would recommend for players of all skill levels. It is easy to throw, easy to control and give great length for amateurs and pros with the glide. Pros will use it as a understable disc especially in S-line og G-line plastic, while I use it for those long straight drives which needs to hit the line just perfect. It is easy to understand why the discmaker Dave Dunipace calls this one of his two favorite fairway discs.
