Superdrive XL
Flight Rating Category Value What DGA says:
The XL-Superdrive is a brand new mold. Its an over stable, very fast long distance driver with a long glide out of an S curve.The XL has the world distance record of 693 feet set by Scott Stokely. I think that says it all for this disc.

Review: Well, I killed it. Before I did, it was a nice hyzer flip disc! Sure doesn't take a lot to get this thing past understable into TOO understable territory. It's a nice disc until then, but I only hit 5 or 6 trees with it, and it's pretty much JUST a turnover disc now. I must admit though, the plastic is nice for bending back from being tacoed. If you're looking to check out a 150 class XL, I'd recommend a normal XL before this one if you play anywhere wooded. This is a better disc, but normal Pro-D plastic would help it be a longer lasting disc. Of course, the two fly differently, too. The normal XL can't take quite as much juice as this one and has a different shape (not by much, but the SuperDrive XL fits into my hand better), but if you're throwing 150 class XLs of any sort well, you should probably have the control not to care much.

Review: Upon finding this white cheap looking plastic disc, I didn't think anything of it. I never saw one before. After a few months went by, I decided to give it a try. Before i give the results, I have been getting the best distance from lightweight DX Wraiths. The star plastic is too stable for me. Anyone else out there that turns Valks over, but cant get a Pro Wraith to stay straight, should like these and DX Wraiths. Well when I threw this disc it got about 30 feet more than I ever threw before. I went from about 350 to about 380 with this disc. I would guess any further and it would have been too understable,as it took a slightly too far right s curve, from a hyzered throw. After throwing it numerous times I would say it is a quite accurate disc as well, I am thinking of buying some new ones, in different weights. I found this disc, and have no clue to the weight, but being very experienced in all different weights, I would guess it is in the 150-160 class, it's very light. The hard , cheap plastic soars with lots of glide. I have a feeling if this disc said "Innova" on it, more people would be using them. Great for beginners-intermediate throwers. I wouldnt recommend them to anyone throwing 400+ that need more stability.

I recently got a chance to throw a DGA Superdrive XL at 171g. I was expecting it to be similar to its Discraft counterpart, but I was incorrect. It is pretty overstable, but not so much that it has a drastic drop off at the end of the flight. I was throwing it into a stiff headwind, and it didn't flip at high speeds. There wasn't a whole lot of glide during any part of the flight. All this being said, I would say it is a good situational disc. I was throwing it about 330 feet in both tail and headwinds. This is compared to the 400+ I was getting from my CE Valks in the same session. Overall, I think it is a good disc. I will certainly be using it on a few holes at my home course.
