Discmania says this about the FD2: "The FD2 is a reliable speed 7 workhorse fairway driver for all skill levels. It’s not too glidey which prevents your shot from sailing off-target and it has a low-speed fade you can depend on. Packed with a nice amount of high-speed stability, this disc gives you nice straight lines when thrown flat and hard. The more power you put behind this disc, the straighter it will perform. When thrown more gently, the fade will kick in earlier in flight making cutting corners easier."
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|
