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: Fairway Driver
In a Nutshell: A straight flying control driver
The Lowdown
The Mantis was released in 2013 for the Discraft Ace Race. It provides a straight flight path with plenty of glide and comfortable feel in the hand. It's an excellent distance driver for newer players and makes a nice 'S' curve when ripped with decent power. Experienced players enjoy using the Mantis Big Z Elite-Z Golf Disc as a utility driver.
