Gateway says this about the Karma: "The Karma is a predictable slightly over stable mid-range driver. This disc can be thrown low and hard for precision shots and is great in the woods. The Karma has a slightly blunt nose and bead which prevents it from tracking right and which helps greatly with side arm throws. Good mid-range for winds up to 20 mph."
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|
