Polaris LF
Flight Rating Category Value What Millennium says:
For stiffer headwinds, you'll want the Polaris LF. It has a strong predictable fade that will fight the wind and stay straight until the very end of its flight. It's also great for skip shots and straight shots that finish with a left fade. (Count on a right fade for lefty backhands or righty sidearms). You can even use it for "reverse S" shots that start right, straighten out, and finish left.

Review: The Polaris LF is a discontinued disc, so its a bit hard to find. I've found them to be an excellent midrange driver, with a very late long fade. This is true of them, thrown either backhand or sidearm. Their flight is very similar to a teebird, far shorter however. I use them as a finese midrange driver. The LF works fantastic in short distances around 200 ft, and is excellent in a tight spot. The plastic is best when roughed up. I take a couple of them, and rub them together til they feel rough and gummy. Eventually, they become as gummy as Pro D plastic, and they seem to retain their flight charecteristics, long after other discs die.

My Review:
The Polaris LF is a fast, overstable driver. Millennium calling the LF a strong fade driver is an overstatement. The LF has resistance to turnover and fade that rivals an Eagle or Cyclone. The LF works well for s-curves and has a lot of glide without being too difficult to control. Medium power throwers should get better distance with the LF than the Polaris LS, but the LF is slower and not as long as discs with similar flight paths such as the Eagle and Teebird. Unfortunately the LF does not have high enough resistance to turnover to handle strong headwinds or left to right crosswinds without turning over. Speedwise it is slightly faster than a Polaris LS and Cheetah but not as fast as a Teebird or Eagle. The Polaris LF's plastic is very grippy and durable and should last a long time for most players. If you are looking for a true fade driver an EXP1, Banshee, Xtra or X2 will probably be a better choice. If you are looking for a disc that is slightly more overstable than most straight drivers but easier to control than the bigger fade drivers, the LF might work well for you. I will say that I find the LF to be a more forgiving disc than the faster Eagle and Teebird but that control is traded for distance. The Polaris LF will probably have a little too much fade for newer players to control.
