I've been playing a lot of long courses lately where I don't throw too many mids off the tee and I've surprised myself by getting away with 2 buzzes and a zone. 1 glow buzzz, actually not a super...

I received a red 172g MVP Inertia this weekend. Got some throws in at a relatively wooded course and a wider longer course to test it out. At 350-380' of power this disc is pretty understable. It...

I was gifted a "first run" stamped D2 recently and found that at 375-400' it didnt fly quite as overstable as an average destroyer. I was getting a slight flip and turn at those distances for a...

I throw about the same distance as you and although there are a few discs in my bag I can do this with, the Leopard is by far my favorite for it. Basically scaling up the power level and adding the...

This thread is interesting... It gets me thinking of the holes at a local course. The course is tightly wooded and uses doglegs to create par 4's in the 450-500' range. There are a few that use...

Stratus was always a tweener for me, Discraft labels it as a fairway driver (http://www.discraft.com/prod_stratus_x.html), I always used it as my understable midrange. Impact is also a weird tweener....

Yeah! Those ones are the sh*t. I had one at 168 that I lost that I'm dying to replace. Overstable to slightly overstable, but domey and glidey!
