The Drew Gibson collaboration that brought us the popular Finish Line Era is back with an all new midrange, the Finish Line Supra. The Supra releases this week during Infinite Discs’ Black Friday Sale, but I got the chance to test one out already. Here is my review!
The run I got in is a prototype stamped one, but Finish Line has a really clean design on all their stamps. I also really like the glossy finish their Forged plastic blend discs have. The Forged plastic blend reminds me quite a bit of premium plastic blends from Prodigy Disc, both in look and feel.
The Forged plastic blend has a really nice grip to it despite it being a more durable “premium” plastic blend. Like I just said, it reminds me of Prodigy plastics which are known for offering some of the best grips on their more durable plastic blends. I think that Finish Line Discs is following right in their footsteps in a very positive way in this department.
As for the shape of the disc itself, the Supra has a nice grip overall, though I will say it maybe isn’t my favorite. This is primarily because the shape of the rim has a blunt edge that the disc doesn’t curve into as much as it slants into with more defined edges around the rim. It is pretty unique from what I’ve seen. It kind of reminds me of the shape of the Dynamic Discs Verdict in this way. This rim shape also isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I just think I prefer the feel of the shape of other midrange options.
This might be my favorite part of this disc. The Supra offers what you are looking for with a straight to overstable midrange–consistency. I felt like it didn’t take long at all for me to feel like I was able to really trust the Supra.
Like most midranges, it holds that initial release line really well. Then the Supra offers a really nice fade that isn’t too hard but also not too soft. It was consistent and I learned to really trust it. Bigger arms could probably get some high speed turn out of it, but for me it was just dead straight out of the hand before hooking up at the end.
The Finish Line Discs Supra in Forged plastic blend is a reliably straight midrange with a consistent fade. It’s a lot of fun to throw. The rim shape is a bit unique and not my personal favorite, but the Forged plastic blend feels fantastic in the hand.
If you already love your midrange like the Innova Roc, Discraft Buzzz, or Thought Space Athletics Pathfinder, maybe this disc won’t replace it. But if you’ve got the itch to try something new to fill this slot in your bag, or if you haven’t had the chance to try out a disc in Finish Line Forged plastic yet, you should give this one a shot.
