Latitude 64° Gold Burst Sapphire - Trilogy Challenge 2021
Are distance drivers only for the pros? Nope. Say hello to our first distance driver in the Easy-to-Use Line. It’s light, it’s fast, yet still easy to grip and control. The Sapphire is designed to be the perfect partner to the Diamond, our most popular Easy-to-Use fairway driver. With the Sapphire you will get that extra speed and stability in your disc arsenal. It has a slim profile for smooth releases, and it is easy to get a good grip, especially for those of you with smaller hands.
I was not one of the players who had the nous to practice with the Sapphire before the Trilogy Challenge event this year, which probably cost me dearly in strokes because once I got to understand its preferred release angles, it became a lovely straight flying, easy fading disc for distances between 80m and 115m. Comparing it with the Avenger SS, I think it has a much longer glide and it is far more stable than the Scorch, which means I can choose to lean into my throws with the confidence that it won't turn and burn unless I really crank on it. In many ways it reminds me of a good Barry Schultz Champ Beast, but in a softer, gummier plastic and a better hyzerflip flight. It hasn't quite made my bag, though, as my Explorer seems to cover almost every shot I would otherwise choose to use the Sapphire for, and requires less touchy handling on windy days. Nevertheless, a nice disc!
