Sniper
Flight Rating Category Value What Ching says:
FAIRWAY DRIVER: The SNIPER is the perfect choice for pros or ams looking for a way to improve their game. The smooth tapered shoulder is aerodynamically blessed for surprising distance in a mid-range style. The small diameter size is easy to control and the Stability Rating is equal to professional demand for a high powered level release at Pro[0].
Predictable accuracy has made this disc a trusted asset in many golf bags. If you are just learning how to throw with power, the SNIPER will allow you to develop your skills with a natural 'hyzer' tendency. If you are already running with the big dogs, then this disc could be the edge you need to win the round.

Review: This disc is great, it will fly far for a mid-range and very straight. Too bad they stopped making it. Actually Innova made it as the Gremlin. I only use this disc for shorter drives now.

The sniper has replaced the Shark and the Roc in my bag for all longer approach shots. [For the shorter approaches, the Shark is still my tool of choice.] The sniper is a straight flying easy to control disc. In addition, it also appears to have a better "bite" into the wind. Lastly, despite the lack of space age plastic, I find this disc to be pretty resiliant. I've hit my share of trees with it, and it still hasn't lost its flight characteristics.
