The Innova GStar Beast is a maximum distance driver that is straight. 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 choice for maximum distance, a turnover driver, tailwind drives, and beginner players looking for more distance from a driver. It makes a good roller. 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 disc golf drivers was issued in by the Beast. It was an instant classic when released, giving players more distance while using less power.

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.
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.

"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
"I use a Champion Beast for my tomahawk shots. It is easy to manipulate and seldom rolls when it hits the ground." - Sandy Gast
