The Astra is one of the best high speed distance drivers for beginners and intermediate players. For the standard backhand throw, there is a good chance that the Astra will fly farther than any other disc in your bag. This disc turns, glides, and then fades back for an overall stable flight that is just plain farther than other golf discs. The Millennium Astra comes in two different quality plastics. The standard plastic is a quality mid grade blend that offers an excellent grip in all weather conditions. Quantum plastic is more durable and will maintain flight consistency for longer periods of time.
