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.

What does this mean?

Stability
Each Discraft disc is rated for stability, ranging from 2.6 (overstable) to 0 (stable) to -1.0 (understable). For beginners, overstable discs are difficult to fly straight, while understable discs are easier to control. When it comes to drivers, 1.0 stability or less are recommended, but you will want a mix of stability in your bag. Overstable discs are great for throwing hyzer shots, long distance 'S' shots and into a headwind. Understable are great for anhyzer throws and rollers. Stable discs are ideal for navigating tight, straight fairways.

Class: Putt & Approach
In a Nutshell: Straight putter that rides a soweeeet turnover line on longer throws!
The Lowdown
The Soft APX Elite-X Golf Disc is a stable putter that will fly straight and slow. This special soft Elite-X plastic allows for a consistent release on crucial short-range shots and putts. The plastic provides a surface just tacky enough to grip the chains resulting in more successful putts. Similar to a Magnet, the APX holds its line on all shots from 10 to 200 feet and is a really sweet disc for tunnel shots and ace-runs.

OB Chris says:
'The APX is similar to a freestyle Frisbee disc - you can air-bounce and curve it around trees a treat - what we call a bit of a 'crafty-crafters'. It releases smoothly from the hand too, making it a superb finesse putter and approach disc. Drive the APX with a sweet s-curve and he'll be purring for an ace... the soft plastic makes this disc stick to the chains so you'll be canning shots from 30-40 metres no problem... it just knows where to go and is so easy to control.'
