The Discraft Elite X Stratus is an understable fairway driver (-1.0). It is great for beginners as well as pros. This easy to throw disc golf driver will fly straight and hold a line at low to mid speeds, or fade to an anhyzer at higher speeds. A well-worn Stratus will flip flat when thrown on a hard hyzer. It is great for roller shots too!
Elite X plastic is a step up in durability compared to Pro-D plastic. It offers great grip even when wet. Discs in the Elite X line have more consistent flights and are slightly more overstable than Pro-D discs.

What others have said:
"This is the best beginner disc out there, and my go-to disc when in trouble. It flies straight at low to mid speeds and turns to the right easily for those hard to get turns. If you learn how to throw the Stratus, you will be able to throw any disc." - Kim Scott-Wood
"I have few nice Strats that I use for touch rollers or corkscrew shots, or just a normal left to right shot at high elevation. I'll also occasionally use it when I have no footing and can only wrist a shot towards the bucket... it doesn't take much to keep it straight. Some tight left to right shots are just easier for me with the Stratus too. It takes less effort to release and get turning." - Mike Randolph
"An absolutely critical disc for my game. I would also recommend the Stratus for beginners or anyone having trouble throwing straight. It's the best disc to start with and to get used to throwing." - Scott Papa
