The Innova GStar Katana is a distance driver that is straight. It was built with the finesse thrower in mind. It's a recommended downwind driver. If you hit the angle right, watch it bolt out of sight. The physical characteristics of this disc golf disc resemble a Boss with flight characteristics of a Sidewinder on steroids. Makes a good roller.
It is great for fast, long, easy distance off the tee and for huge turnover shots.
Speed 13, Glide 5, Turn -3, Fade 3 Champion Katanas have slightly different flight characteristics at 13, 5 ,-3, 3.
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.

"The Champion Katana went right in my bag brand new. I throw it hard, with a slight anhyzer angle, and low. When it hits the ground it skips really far which I like. I also use it for most of my drives into a headwind." - Hannah Leatherman
"I love the Blizzard Champion Katana for side arm flick shots. It goes long and super straight." - Sandy Gast
"Possibly my favorite out-of-the-box high-speed driver. It takes a while to turn over and glides really well. Recently, this 52 year old 3'd a 780' hole from 45' behind the pin with 2 Pro Katana drives. I'd say the disc works pretty well." - Gregg Hosfeld
