The Innova Pro Driver Beast is a staight stable maximum distance driver. It glides long to a predictable finish. Its high glide, high speed, and high speed turn all combine to give big distance. It is suitable for beginners and pros alike. The Beast is a great disc golf disc for maximum distance, a turnover driver, tailwind drives, rollers and beginner players looking for more distance from a driver. It's sure to increase distance for beginners and pros alike. A favorite of two-time World Champion Barry Schultz. 21.2 cm diameter
The era of the wide rimmed drivers was issued in by the Beast. It was an instant classic when released, giving players more distance while using less power.

You may or may not know the history of the Beast. Originally released in 2002, the Beast was the first of the new breed of high speed drivers to follow the Valkyrie, which was at that time the fastest longest driver out there. Early in production the Beast was a slightly overstable model. It won Barry Schultz the 2003 US Championship in probably THE most epic playoff in disc golf history. When the rest of the speed 10 line and the Wraith came, the Beast was retooled to have a more graceful turning vibe. We've recently revived that original beast tooling that we are labeling the Beast-X. If the lower rim has a straight profile from edge to bottom, possibly a little convex, that's the Beast. If it's got a slight curve with a concave lower edge, that's the Beast-X. The Beast-X flight is more comparable to a Wraith or Krait. They are a great pair of drivers, one has graceful gentle turn, and the other has the stability to handle wind and has a hyzer finish.
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.

What others have said:
"A very controllable driver, yet it's so fast it makes a great distance disc. I usually carry 2-3 Beasts depending on the course and weather. I tend to use a durable Champion Beast in the woods, and a DX Beast when it is cold/wet or at an open course." - Barry Schultz
"The Beast has quickly become a favorite of mine. MY USE RANGE: 280-400ft. Very versatile disc...Flick or RHBH! My main use for it is the big "S" turn shot to usually dodge trees up the middle. This thing dodges trees like nothin! Glides well & is VERY accurate!" - Eric Friedman
