What do these mean?

Speed
Speed is the ability of the disc to cut through the air. Speed Ratings are listed from 1 to 13. Discs with high numbers are faster. Faster discs go farther into the wind with less effort. Slower discs take more power to throw, but have less of a chance to fly past the basket.

Glide
Glide describes the discs ability to maintain loft during flight. Discs with more glide are best for new players, and for producing maximum distance (especially downwind). Glide is rated from 1 to 7. Beginners looking for more distance should choose discs with more glide.

Turn
High Speed Turn is the tendency of a disc to turn over or bank to the right (for RHBH throws) during the initial part of the flight. A disc with a +1 rating is most resistant to turning over, while a -5 rating will turn the most. Discs rated -2 to -5 make good roller discs.

Fade
Low Speed Fade is the discs tendency to hook left (for RHBH throws) at the end of the flight. Fade is rated from 0 to 5. A disc rated 0 will finish straightest, while a disc rated 5 will hook hard at the end of the flight. Discs with a high fade rating are predicable even in wind.

Class: Distance Driver

In a Nutshell: The Firebird Star Golf Disc is pretty fast and truly predictable. If it’s windy and there is trouble around, the Firebird knows what to do.

The Lowdown
The Firebird is probably the most popular headwind distance driver in the world. The Firebird Star Golf Disc's combination of superior speed and stability make it possible to throw drives into the wind with confidence. An excellent disc for throwing long range flex shots. A favorite of sidearm and overhead throwers, too. This disc is designed for professional level players.

This is what Team Innova Pro Paul McBeth has to say:
'If you need a disc to go left no matter what, this is the right disc for you. You can throw this disc as hard as you want and it will not flip over. It is my favorite disc for strong head winds and hyzer shots. This disc is also over-stable in all weights!'
