Juliana Bower Stratus
Flight Rating Category Value What Discraft says:
This disc is great for beginners as well as pros. It will fly very straight at low to mid speed and will turn to the right easily for those hard to get turns. The Stratus is super for roll shots also. If you only want to play with one disc, this is it.

My Review:
Discraft's Juliana Bower Signature Series Stratus is a moderately fast small diameter understable driver. This disc is molded in a special signature series blend of plastic that is somewhere between the Tournament Pro and Elite X lines of plastic. I would say it's durability and feel more closely resemble the Elite X. The Stratus is Discraft's most understable disc and its stability is most comperable to a Stingray or Panther. It has very little fade that occurs at the very end of its flight and is one of the easier discs to throw on the market. The flight of the Stratus varies a lot by power level. Higher powered players will find the Stratus to be an excellent choice for a roller when thrown flat or anhyzer and it should flatten and give a constant right turn when thrown hyzer. Medium powered players can expect of the Stratus a constant right turn when thrown flat, a roller when thrown anhyzer, and a hyzer that will flatten and turn late in its flight. Lower powered players should find the Stratus to fly fairly straight when thrown with almost any angle and very little fade. While it's not one of the super-long drivers on the market, the Stratus falls into that 3-iron/5-iron type of distance and should be longer than most midrange discs while shorter than many of the high speed max D drivers. Overall, the Juliana Bower Stratus is a good, durable, out-of-the-box roller and an easy disc for beginners to control.
