The Freak's Best Friend(s)?
 
Hey all, I have noticed a ton of people are throwing PD's out there (at least according to a number of Sig's on the forum). I too LOVE PD's. Problem is, that's the only Driver I have loved. Currently, due to losing some discs, some tacos, and selling others, the only driver over speed 10 I carry is a 170 S-PD. I noticed that everybody pairs the PD with something different (which is to be expected, there's no right answer for everyone). I know PD's can do all kinds of things with different weights and plastics, even so I still a couple holes in my bag. My question is:

What disc(s) work really well with the PD to fill-out a driver lineup? (Give weights and plastic types if you would)



For the record, I throw backhand with both hands and max out on distance around 360-380. I typically throw drivers between 172-168 grams.....In case you wanted to make specific suggestions for me.

Discs I've though about using: Krait, Flow, Wraith, Pro-Destroyer, DD2, Bolt, Hurricane

S-DD and P-PD2
DD2 was flippy and unpredictable for me. I hated it immensely.

STD's pair nicely.

Yeah, with penicillin.

I know this disc gets promoted to death, but the Saint. It's like the little black dress of disc golf. It just goes with everything.

Yeah, I actually have one I use. I don't know if anyone else has had this experience, but it's ridiculously flippy. I have a 170g GL...it flew like a faster teebird for about 2 months and then all of a sudden started turning more and more. Now it's like a Sidewinder.

I use a 166g Sparkle Opto. I can certainly turn it over if I choose, but released well it's ridiculously flat. It seems like a perfect marriage between the line-shaping flippiness of the Gold Lines and the predictable fade of the heavier regular Optos.

Just get a heavier Opto. 172-175 Opto should be pretty good. Or if you like faster speeds get an Opto Flow. People that mesh with the Flow seem to really bomb them. It could be a good compliment for you.

I had a 175 GL and it was flippy out of the box. Right around SW stability.
