The Innova R-Pro Hydra is an overstable putt & approach disc. It also makes a great multi purpose disc for short turning drives and approach shots. The Hydra is beginner friendly, made with a grippy, durable plastic that provides ease of release, friendly grip and floats in water. It is a solid approach disc, similar to the Rhyno. All Hydras are 173-175 grams.
It is a great choice for risky water hazard approaches, straight shots, and bad weather putting.

About Pro plastic in general - it starts out being slightly less overstable. Pro discs are more durable than DX. They provide more grip than Champion. They provide more glide than DX, Champion and Star. They retain flight characteristics longer than DX. They range from firm to extremely soft and flexible.
About R-Pro plastic - its special blend of plastic provides maximum grip with increased flexibility in all weather. They are more flexible and consistently softer at low temperatures than most Pro blends. This makes R-Pro ideal for cold weather play. R-Pro Drivers are stiffer while Mid-Range and Approach discs are more flexible.
