The Innova GStar Sidewinder is a fast, beginner friendly understable distance driver with a predictable high speed turn and lots of glide. This disc golf driver can add distance to anyone’s drive and is especially useful for those with less power. The Sidewinder is Innova's best disc for long turnover shots and long distance rollers. Even disc golfers who have never had much success throwing a roller shot, will be amazed at the results they can achieve with the Sidewinder. It is a great out of the box roller.
It is a great choice for a good first driver, roller disc, tailwind driver, narrow woods driver, first distance driver, tailwind drives, downhill distance, and long turnover drives. Beginner friendly.

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.

What others have said:
"The Sidewinder is very easy to throw and flies great with a little hyzer. It can turn over easily so be careful in the wind!" - Pam Reineke
"An excellent disc for players of all skill levels. This disc has a very predictable high-speed turn with lots of glide and a slow comeback. It is a great disc for long turnover shots. It makes a great long distance roller. It is also a good disc choice for high altitude play." -Steve Wisecup
"Incredibly easy to control as a flip-up straight flyer, a big anhyzer disc, or as a roller. For players with lesser power it makes throwing for big distance much easier. Great for long distance shots where you need to thread the needle." - Christian Dietrich
