The Ballista is an extremely fast overstable driver that provides excelent control at high speeds. It is one of the fastest discs in the world and combined with it's stability is a must have in any bag. It will be overstable for beginners and slightly understable for high powered throwers. The Gold Line plastic is very durable, has great grip, and is strikingly beautiful. In fact, the look of this plastic is almost like a fine automotive paint job, where it seems like you are looking through a clear laquer to high-quality finish below.
