Raketen is a new superfast and stable long range driver, the flight rating is set to Speed 15, Glide 3, HSS -1,5 and LSS 3,5. "Raketen (The Rocket in Swedish) is an extremely fast long distance driver due to the unique hexagon pattern. The HEX pattern helps the disc be less affected by air drag so it can fly faster, but at the same time you will lose a bit of the glide. Compared to our first HEX disc, Missilen, Raketen is easier to throw for slower arms and can be compared to our Bolt in stability." according to the company.
It will be available at the beginning at the middle of in Opto Hex. Raketen is sent to approval to the PDGA.

Latitude 64° Maul is a new understable fairway driver made for turnover shots.” It resembles our popular driver the River, in both speed and glide but is more understable.

Outside diameter: 21.4 cm

Macana is a new slightly over stable putter, it will be included in the Trilogy Challenge Set (in retro plastic). Macana can best be described both in flight and design as a little less deep Dagger.
