Drift is a term Millennium uses to describes a disc's stability, its overall flight pattern, i.e. where it lands compared to from where it was thrown.
* Some manufacturers use the term Understable.
* Thrown Right Handed Back Hand (RHBH) or Left Handed Fore Hand (LHFH), a disc has a clockwise rotation and tends to veer to the right during the initial part of its flight when it's spinning the fastest.
* At the end of their flight as they lose speed, all spinning discs tend to fall in the opposite direction of their spin, but not so much for understable discs.
* Tend to turn in proportion to the speed of release. A fast released disc goes in the direction of its spin longer and further before it eventually falls off to left at the tail end of its flight. A slowly released disc will not see much movement in the direction of the spin and will fly straight and fall off opposite the direction of the spin as it loses speed. In other words, an understable disc will often fly stable to overstable at low speed.
* Given a level release with moderate power, 300 - 350', a drift disc tends to finish in a slight Fade (fall away from the direction of rotation) resulting in an "S-Curve" flight pattern.
* Easiest for new players to control, and will provide the most distance for beginning disc golfers.
* Great for beginners but used by pros and experienced players for various specialty shots.
* Use for anhyzer shots on a dogleg right or for roller shots.
* Generally should not be used in a headwind as they are too unpredictable.
