The Eagle is one of Innova's most popular drivers among highly-skilled players. Most throwers will find a Champ Eagle difficult to throw far and straight, however it performs this shot beautifully with the help of a headwind or a power throw. It also excels at forehand shots. The Eagle's characteristics make it one of the definitive "control drivers", meaning that power, wind, or wear can make the driver turn over from flat for a given amount of its flight, then flex back into a fade. For accuracy, this flight characteristic can't be beat.
