Paul McBeth Jawbreaker Athena
The Discraft Athena is a straight to stable fairway driver and is the 6th disc in Paul McBeth's signature lineup. The Athena has been described by McBeth as a slower Anax. The Athena has a consistent flight path, making this a very controllable fairway driver. These Athenas were ran in Jawbreaker plastic for the first time, helping to impede skips while promoting increased grip.
Fairway Driver: Speed 7 | Glide 5 | Turn 0 | Fade 2 | Stability 1.1

Feels amazing can’t wait to throw it.
Purchased this for my practice buddy who's 73. He loves his Innova Hawkeye, but he's a PM fanboy and I knew a 165 Athena would fit right in. Now he has a nice fairway driver with a bit of finish. I borrow it on occasion for a nice hyzer-flip that'll hold its line. Curious to see how the Jawbreaker plastic holds up...or doesn't.
I picked this up to try against my other Athenas (first run and protos). Found it to be slightly understable with great fade at the end. All in all love it
Its amazing a disc I’ve definitely been looking for that starts straight to overstable that will beat in to straight
The new lineups of JB and even JBZ plastics have been amazing. The Athena is one of my main go to discs and I carry multiple plastics in the disc. This JB version quickly became the main for now so it can beat in to a dead straight flyer good for around 300. Low line tunnels and hard fades at the right distance. Love this disc.
