Interactive Disc Golf Flight Charts
Disc golf flight charts are estimated flight paths of disc golf discs and are closely related to the disc golf flight rating numbers. Disc golf flight charts can be valuable when used to research disc characteristics or to build a disc golf bag strategy.
Click on any disc in the grid to see an interactive flight chart and disc specifications. Select your dexterity (right or left), the forehand modifier, and an arm speed (slower, normal, faster) to see how the suggested flight of a disc changes.
Use the Compare button to allow up to four discs to be compared on the same flight chart. After four discs, any new selection will remove the oldest item in the list unless the Sticky option has been enabled or another disc has been removed with the Remove button. Click or touch the disc name to highlight the disc on the chart.
After adding discs to "my bag" click the link that pops up at the bottom to view your customized disc matrix.
Discraft Crank SS: The great equalizer
By Steve Hill - Noodle Arm Disc Golf staff,
I don’t generally make New Year’s resolutions.
Maybe it’s a cop out – if there is no resolution made, then there isn’t one to break – but it also has something to do with a different focus, I think. As I get a little older, I try to key more on what I have now, rather than what I want to be. It helps keep me present.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t set some realistic goals to aim for throughout the year, especially when it comes to my semi-athletic pursuits. As a result, I originally planned on adding to my driving distance – a mere 20 feet or so, nothing crazy – so I could be a little more competitive on the course.
Then I realized that I already did that at the end of 2015 with the Discraft Crank SS.
This is why I don’t make resolutions.
Easy out of the box
Developed as the understable complement to 2013’s wildly successful Crank, Discraft’s latest offering levels the playing field for us mere mortals with a combination of speed and minimal required power that is difficult to rival. The Crank SS, even with its wide rim and shallow depth, makes for dream flights when you hit it right, without being as overly nose-angle sensitive as competing max-distance drivers.
And it wasn’t like it took long to figure it out, either. From the first field throw with the Crank SS – just a smooth, flat release to see how it would handle – it was clear that this disc would not only be easy to throw, but also easy to control.
Normally when throwing a new wide-rimmed driver – last year’s popular Latitude 64 Raketen comes to mind – I’ll have to give it a little more gusto and a slight anhyzer release to see a straight flight. It’s the Noodle Arm way, and it’s something I’ve come to accept as a given when testing high-speed drivers. The Crank SS, though, did not need any extra oomph or tweaking of release angles to see a nice long, straight flight with a small ending fade on its maiden voyage. Thrown at about 70% power, I was both surprised and elated with how this thing handled out of the box.
My enjoyment of the mold only grew as I got it to the course and worked it on multiple lines.
As stunned as I was at its ease of use in the field, the Crank SS opened my eyes on the course with a truly new experience: a high weight, high speed disc that I could hyzer flip to flat.
You read that correctly. The 170-172 gram-stickered Crank SS that Discraft sent me to review hyzer flips like an old friend, creating massive (relatively speaking), easy, straight distance for the 300-feet and under crowd. This is something I have only experienced with wide-rimmed drivers that are either incredibly light or incredibly mangled, and even then the hyzer flip is rarely reliable.
With the Crank SS, though, I have been able to come back to this release time and again for relatively consistent flights. It makes for a driver that can be aired out for big distance if you have enough space – full power, flat release and BOOM! – but can also fit into tighter spaces and hold low lasers if the shot calls for it.
Hole 11 at Kit Carson Park is an excellent example of one of these smaller windows. With an OB fence on the left and trees to the right, I prefer to hug the boundary for the high speed portion of the flight before letting the disc fade into a safe opening down the fairway. On a medium-powered flat release or a full-powered hyzer, the Crank SS will hold that straight shot without drifting over the fence and OB, yet get me further off the tee than most other discs in my bag.
The 170-172 gram-stickered Crank SS that Discraft sent me to review hyzer flips like an old friend, creating massive, easy, straight distance for the 300-feet and under crowd.
Later in a Kit Carson round I can call upon the Crank SS to hit a wide double mando on Hole 14 and see the disc’s full flight pattern, all the way from hyzer to flat to turnover. It’s a beautiful sight, especially if you have the lateral room to allow for the entire enchilada.
A small trade-off
While I gush about the Crank SS’ ability to add distance for a low-powered arm, there are a couple drawbacks to highlight.
First, I can’t seem to make the same hyzer flips happen with much height, which has limited some of my ability to throw it uphill. It is something to work on, and likely can be chalked up to my form. But other noodle arms likely have form flaws, too, so it’s worth mentioning.
Also, like any understable mold the Crank SS is susceptible to the two Ws: wind and wrist roll. Prepare for true comedy if this driver happens upon an unseen breeze down the fairway, and make sure you’re keeping those releases relatively clean unless you’re hunting gophers.
That said, the distance yielded from this mold makes the cons worth the trouble. There’s something both empowering and comforting about being able to throw a wide-rimmed driver with relative control and additional distance, almost a “walk a mile in their shoes” feeling. In this case, the “their” refers to higher-powered players.
The mile? You won’t have to walk that far to your lie, but it might be close.

Shortly before the 2013 PDGA Amateur World Championships, Discraft announced a new high speed distance driver: the Discraft Crank. Discraft held a Test Drive event at Am Worlds that allowed disc golfers to try out the new high speed driver. At the time, not much was known about the Crank. After being released in the Am Worlds players pack, word is quickly spreading about the Crank. We got our hands on one of the Cranks released at Am Worlds and took it out to the course for a full review.
Discraft says this about the Crank:
Super fast! Crank hits the sweet spot: it’s the best disc a player can find for easier accuracy and big distance. Controllable for ams and pros alike, Crank has a narrower rim than other big drivers, so it fits more comfortably in your hand too.
During our tests we had disc golfers at a variety of skill levels try the Crank to see how it performed for them. Everyone had something good to say about the Crank and saw some pretty nice distance on their throws. The Crank has a rim width of 2.4 cm. In comparison, the Discraft Nuke has a 2.5 cm rim and the Discraft Force comes in at 2.3. In our tests, the golfers who didn’t like the super wide rimmed drivers said the Crank was comfortable enough in the hand to throw. Others who said they liked high speed drivers said the Crank felt very comfortable in their hand.
Even with the slightly smaller feel to the Crank’s rim, you certainly feel like the disc has some power. We were able to get a very strong, yet controllable, grip on the Crank in every one of our throws. Time and time again we saw very consistent releases which helped produce consistent flight paths.
When thrown with a flat release the Crank does have a very consistent, controllable turn to it. It doesn’t flip too fast, and won’t completely roll over, but it will slowly glide out to the right. When you give it a little hyzer on release, the Crank will flip up flat, and depending on the angle, track just a little to the right, before fading back to the left. After just a handful of throws the Crank’s turn felt very familiar to us and something we know we could trust throw after throw. Stronger arms were able to produce more turn than the weaker arms, but the weaker arms never felt like they didn’t have the ability to throw the Crank properly.
At the end of the flight, the Crank’s fade was never that hard. If given a flat release, the Crank would really only fade back to center on the line it was thrown. Don’t expect very big sweeping s-turn shots with the Crank. The lines we saw were much tighter. We look at this like a good thing though. If you need to hit a small window or a tight line the Crank will be able to keep a very straight and true path the entire flight. With a little hyzer flip and less turn to the right, the Crank was able to fade out little harder, but never hard enough to produce a big skip.
We were also able to try out the Crank on some anhyzer shots. When given a nice sweeping anhyzer line, the Crank would hold the angle for nearly the entire flight. The fade at the end was never quite strong enough to bring it all the way back out. At the very most the Crank would return flat, but hold the line it was currently on.
The Crank had a decent amount of glide, but nothing that seemed extraordinary. It didn’t have the same as the Innova Tern, but did seem to have a little more than a Nuke.
Discraft rates the Crank on their stability scale at 1.3. When all was said and done, this seemed pretty spot on. On the Innova flight scale, we’d rate the Crank at 12, 5, -1.5 to -2, 1.5. Stronger arms were able to push a little more turn out of it, but everyone agreed that the Crank can push out some very controllable distance.
Looking at the flight chart from inbounds Disc Golf you’ll see a flight nearly identical to what we experienced. A controllable turn before a fade that brings the disc back to center.
In comparison, the Crank felt like a beat up Discraft Force. It lacked the glide of the Force and clearly didn’t have the strong fade, but the flight would compliment a Force quite well. If you’re an Innova thrower, you could also compare the Crank to a beat in Star Destroyer. You also won’t quite get the glide that the Tern has, but you will get some nice distance. If Discraft is going for controllable, straight line distance, then they have done it quite well. Don’t be surprised to see the Crank catch some CTPs on some long holes on your local course sometime soon.
The Crank is now available at disc golf retailers everywhere.
