What RPM say: RPM has added a stable fairway driver to it’s range. The ‘Huia’ will fast become a favourite in your bag providing consistent medium to long range straight shots with a gentle fade. The added glide will mean that you can sneak some extra distance with your tunnel shots and the blunt nose means you won’t lose control if it hits a pocket of wind.
If you enjoy throwing forehand shots you will notice the slightly deeper rim helping you grip the disc.
Model #: DGFD1
PDGA Approved: Yes – as the Huia
Plastic types: Cosmic / Atomic / Strata / Glow
Glow plastic from RPM is wicked: charging up for just a short time results in a bright green glow, which is so intense you'll really struggle to lose this disc at night. It has a consistency like Innova's Blizzard Champion on the top surface of the rim, which is a feature of all RPM Glow discs.
Huia is a Teebird analog from RPM. Slightly deeper and slightly blunter edged, but a fairly similar disc in terms of flight shape.
The stability of Huia is admirable out of the box, and this is a disc which will serve even relative newcomers well, as an overstable driver capable of handling good headwinds.
Advanced players will be able to craft accurate lines on different angles due to its small speed-7 wing size, while reaching far with Huia's glide.
The Huia gets a big quality tick mark also, with very smooth, polished surfaces and fantastic feel on all plastic variants.
Flight Rating: 7 5 0 2
