The Innova Star Atlas is an overmold that combines a firm, low-profile flight plate with a grippy rim. It is a straight flying mid range driver with a small amount of high speed turn and very little fade. It combines accuracy and control with an ergonomic grip. The Atlas performs well for both backhand and forehand throwers forgiving small throwing errors better than any other mid range.
It is a great choice for technical shots, accurate approaches and controlled mid range drives.
The Atlas features a new two-part molding process that allows Innova to mate two different plastics for the rim and flight plate. Four 'compass points' located on the underside of the disc are ports where the rim is injected over the flight plate. The rim features flexible and grippy Star plastic, while the flightplate consists of Innova's stiffest Star plastic. The Atlas allows better grip where it counts while being firm and stiff for maximum control. The two-color design offers better visibility, too.
Speed 5, Glide 4, Turn 0, Fade 1.
About Star plastic in general - it has the durability of Champion plastic with the superior all-weather grip of Pro plastic. Star discs have the same flight rating characteristics of Champion discs, although some Star Lite discs may be slightly more high-speed stable. Star retains flight characteristics longer than DX or Pro Plastics.
