The “Groove” is a high speed distance driver with a groove in its rim (hence the name). While this disc is not a great one for beginners, it did rank second of the Speed 13 distance drivers from our tests on forehand distance throws. Most of the time we didn’t get our throws quite right for the fine aerodynamics of the Groove, but once in a while we got the Groove to really sail. In my first set of 10 throws, I had two with the Groove that exceeded 300 feet (that’s really good drive for me).
The Groove is the only high speed Innova Disc with a glide rating of 6. Our good throws really showed the distance this disc can get when you throw it just right. Here is a professional review by Summit Sports:
