Discmania Evolution Paradigm
Discmania says this about the Paradigm: "Paradigm is a clear example of excellence in a distance driver. Designed to fit comfortably in hand, this speedy driver was designed specifically to have the overall feeling of fairway driver characteristics but steps it up a notch with the speed. Paradigm excels with it’s uncanny ability to be manipulated in flight. The slightly under stable nature of the disc allows players to easily carve the fairways with “s-curve” (anhyzer) shots to various degrees, stable enough to be thrown dead straight, and can still be thrown on reliable hyzer lines without breaking the wrong way. "
The velocity required to reach a disc's optimal flight path. Range: 1 to 15.
The measure of lift generated by a disc to stay aloft. Range: 1 to 7.
The velocity, relative to the speed of the disc, required to cause the disc to turn with the direction of spin. Range: +1 to -5.
The low-velocity stability that causes a disc to hook at the end of its flight. Range: 0 to 5.

Phases of Flight
|As the disc slows and spin decreases, the disc pulls out of turn and begins to hook at the end of flight|
|The aerodynamic profile turns the disc with the direction of spin during the high-speed phase of flight|
|The initial thrust forward during the high-speed phase of flight|
