The Kiwi was RPM’s first driver and was previously known as the Raptor and the Taniwha.
PDGA approved as DGD1
As most people are introduced to New Zealanders as Kiwi’s we see this disc as a good Over stable medium speed driver that will enable you to throw in any wind conditions, a classic very over stable dependable workhorse.
Kiwi or Kiwi’s are flightless birds native to New Zealand but as you know there’s nothing flightless about disc golf discs.
The Kiwi is able to be thrown by anyone but for distance in a head wind we recommend Intermediate to experienced players use this disc. Beginners can enjoy this disc for its over stability or for hard forehand throwers who release on a lot of angle.
The latest iteration is a more over stable than the previous versions of the disc and will hold a consistent angle through high speed with a sharp fade to finish. The extra stability makes it well suited as a utility roller too.
The Kiwi is New Zealand’s most iconic bird and we could not leave this out of our range
