The Fortress is certainly an insurmountable opponent to any fairway. It is fast, stable, controllable and has just enough glide to perform at the highest level, and it is perfect for a powerful forehand drive. Any player looking to add a great headwind disc to their bag should certainly check this one out. VIP plastic is similar to Latitude's Opto line, or Discraft Z. Sweet colors, glassy & grippy -- best of all, ultra-durable.
