Discraft Hades Disc Review

Discraft Hades Disc Review



Every disc golf player got excited when Paul McBeth signed up with Discraft to be the co-designer of several discs. The fifth disc to be released under McBeth’s series, the Hades never fails to disappoint as a driver, especially for those long throws because it’s one of the best understable distance drivers out there today.

With impressive flight ratings and solid reviews, the Hades is definitely a must-have in any disc golf bag because of its efficiency, comfort, and quality.

For newer players

One of the best attributes of the Hades is its efficiency even if you’re a new player. This distance driver is one of the easiest to throw by any mark and even if you don’t have that strong throwing arm yet. This is because this disc is designed to give you the maximum distance without blowing your arm out.

Since it’s an more understable disc, the Hades is expected to perform well for slower arm speeds. The Hades has excellent glide and with higher arm speeds most will be able to get decent turn out of this driver.



For experienced players

The Hades has a glide rating of 6, which is one of the most impressive ratings that you can find for understable distance drivers. With such good glide, experienced players can really maximize the disc’s speed allowing it to reach a speed rating of up to 12.

This disc also has a turn rating of -3, which means that it will most likely turn right. But with that tendency also comes the disc’s ability to fight back to turn left, which is quite impressive if you’re a professional player.

The Hades is also very versatile, which means that you can use it to experiment with different moves and it will always turn out exceptional.



Best used for:

The Discraft Hades disc is best used for long-distance drives where you need to reach your target distance even if you don’t have a strong throw yet or you just don’t want to stress your arms out too much. Because of its noticeable glide, you can see that it will add more distance to your throws and it will also impress you with its ability to fade back to the midline and ensure that you get your flight path straight.



Types of plastics:


The Hades comes in

ESP Plastic. This is known to be one of the best and toughest plastics that Discraft has in its lineup. The ESP offers an excellent feel when touching it and it’s also comfortable enough to offer you the best grip when holding it. Chosen by the great Paul McBeth himself, you can expect ESP to fly high in terms of standards.



Final thoughts

Although the Discraft Hades is designed for intermediate and professional players, beginners can also invest in one for their disc golf bag. This disc never fails to impress as a distance driver and it will surprise you with its efficiency on the field and even with bad weather conditions.

So, if you’re looking to invest in a good distance driver that will offer you the best long shots, this is the disc for you. Check out more reviews of the Hades here.
