Raketen (The Rocket in english) 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 some glide. This is quite easy to see when the discs touches the ground after a throw. It still has forward momentum and it is actually landing with more forward motion than a “normal” disc. Compared to our first HEX disc, Missilen, Raketen is easier to throw for slower arms and can be compared to our Bolt in stability. If you want to be the fastest thrower on the course, pick up Raketen and start the countdown!
