Speed is relative but the numbers from most companies help to find a disc that is a putter, hybrid midrange like putter or hybrid putter like midrange, midrange, hybrid midrange like fairway or fairway like midrange, fairway to control driver slot, then max distance 11+. The other numbers seem meaningless especially fade and glide as this can vary in just one mold due to how a disc molds up, the plastic used, and in Innova case X or L wing for some molds.

Basically the end flight fade if one can get a disc up to the power the mold needs and the speed numbers of a disc can be more consistent in finding a disc for the player that holds those lines. Even Fade can change from plastic to plastic but in a particular plastic the end fade is usually the same from disc to disc with a few exceptions like the Innova X and L wing.
