In terms of quality discs Millennium products take a back seat to no one in the business. Names such as Orion and Polaris are discs players have come to trust on the course.
As good as those discs are, the new Astra is a new offering which might well be the best Millennium flier on the market.
If you aren't a monster tosser, or you're a beginner finding your way in the sport, the Astra offers you something more ultra long-range drivers don't. You can still get performance out of the Astra if you keep it level, because the disc has excellent glide, which of course means greater distance.
The sleek profile of the Astra enhances its ability to fly flat from the hand, a definite bonus for novice players.
A bigger thrower has the option to give it more air for yardage too.
The company website also suggests the Astra can be an effective roller, but that is a throw Patrick Park Disc Golf Course doesn't require, so my experience rolling the disc is not enough to comment on.
Ultimately, what the Astra does offer is a long range flier which can grow with the thrower. A beginner can invest in this beauty and like the results as he grows.
Add in its availability in weights from 160-to-175 grams, and two plastics options, and you end up with an Astra disc which is really to the specs of the thrower.
You won't go wrong with the Astra in your bag, and you may just form a long-lasting attachment to it as a favoured option.
