The Innova GStar Valkyrie is a distance driver that is straight and has great glide. It is an easy to learn disc, and in lighter weights will give newer players extra distance. The GStar offers flexibility and even more grip. It has an opaque color like Star with a pearlescent sheen players love. Lighter weights also give players extreme range when thrown downwind, while maximum weights can give excellent upwind distance. The Valkyrie’s high speed turn and flight characteristics make it great choice for long range turnover shots and rollers. 21.2 cm diameter.
It is a great choice for a beginner's first distance driver, tailwind drives, downhill distance, long turnover drives, and rollers.
The Valkyrie is a World Record holder. Innova Team Champion member, Christian Sandstrom of Sweden, shattered the distance record on April 26, 2002 at "Big D in the Desert." His record throw of 250 meters (820 feet) was made with a 164g DX Valkyrie. Former team member Ken Jarvis was first to break the record with a throw of 247 meters. Ken's record lasted a mere 45 minutes! The previous record of 217.05m (712 feet) had been set by Chris Voigt of Germany.

About GStar plastic in general - it has more flexibility and more grip than regular Star. It's more flexible in cold weather yet not floppy in hot weather. It retains flight characteristics longer than DX or Pro Plastic. It's just as durable as Star and maybe slightly more since added flexibility prevents damage during hard hits. All said and done, it offers high performance, longevity, superior grip, flexibility and an amazing pearlescent sheen.

"This is my favorite driver. It is an incredibly versatile disc for me. It works very well with my throwing style. I tend to throw low and the Valkyrie gets great distance with low thrown shots. I typically carry three Valkyries with me during a round. One is beat and used for long turnover shots. The others can be used for hyzers and subtle helix shots." - Juliana Korver
