The Atlas is an overmold that combines a firm, low-profile flight plate with a grippy rim. This Mid-Range flies straight with minimal fade, combining accuracy and control with an ergonomic grip. The Atlas performs well for both backhand and forehand throwers forgiving small throwing errors better than any other Mid-Range. The Atlas features four ‘compass points’ located on the underside of the disc. These ports are where the rim is injected over the flight plate.
About the XT plastic:
XT Pro is a tough blend of Pro that was originally designed for the Nova. It worked so well, it spread to other models. Grip is off the charts and durability falls somewhere between Pro and Star. XT Pro is more firm than Yeti Pro, and less firm than KC Pro with a unique grip that feels great in the hand, and helps stop the disc quickly when landing
