The Atlas is an overmold that combines a firm, low-profile flight plate with a grippy rim. This Mid-Range flies straight with minimal fade, combining accuracy and control with an ergonomic grip. The Atlas performs well for both backhand and forehand throwers forgiving small throwing errors better than any other Mid-Range. The Atlas features four 'compass points' located on the underside of the disc. These ports are where the rim is injected over the flight plate. The Atlas is a straight flying Mid-Range with a small amount of high speed turn and very little fade.
Best choice for: Technical shots, accurate approaches, controlled mid-range drives
Speed: 5 Glide: 4 Turn: 0 Fade: 1
I don't know why no one is throwing this disc. It has almost no turn and a small reliable fade. It can handle a 10km/h headwind. I have thrown the buzzz, emac truth, and gstar roc 3; always at weights of at least 175g. The Atlas goes as far as any of them but has less turn and less fade. I suppose that some people will get more distance out of those other discs by putting them on more of an S line. When I want more that 300 feet, I just reach for a fairway driver.
