Personally, I would look at what the PD DOESN'T do well and go from there. C-PDs are decently overstable, but shorter, S and P PDs can be worked in to cover turnovers and can get some decent distance with height and s-curves, but aren't as stable. In light of that, I've found that when I've thrown PD only rounds, the one thing I'm really missing is a disc that goes as far as I can get my P-PDs on turnovers and s-shots but on straighter lines and potentially with hyzer finishes. For me, right now that means swords and trespasses.

Newer SPD not stable enough? It has huge D potential and always stays straight for me. The sword is a flippy pos when you hit 400. You can get a spd out over 400 and it barely turns

A good one to compliment it is the Avenger SS, converted to a Innova/Discmania rating it would be 10/5/-3/1, so you will have something that handles shots that need turnover and it throws one of the best hyzer flips in the game (I have an FLX and it's my main driver), another to consider if you don't won't something quite that understable or fast would be the Gateway Assassin, it's a bit slower than the PD though faster than most fairway/control drivers, but has great glide and will easily shape any line you put on it, stable for small arms, bigger arms can get a gentle turn on it with some snap put behind it.

You have a bigger arm than I do, then. I can get a NEW S-PD out about as far as my C-PDs...say 350 ish. I can get beat in S and P PDs to 375-400, the same distance I can get my swords and trespasses, but the lines are very different for me. PDs have to take big high S-curves. My swords and trespasses I can hyzer flip to flat with a reliable fade on the end.

When listening to new you should keep in mind he throws 500+

Yeah, That's what I'm trying to figure out... I love that a heavier C-PD can cover hard winds and Hyzer drives. S-PD's can be controlled distance drives, and P-PD's can be distance, eventually hyzerflippers and Turnover shots. BUT...all of that only works to a certain point. No PD will give me a nice S shot, or a straighter, tighter distance line (the P-PD will for a little bit before it starts flipping more), or MAX D.

I'm ideally looking at something FASTER than a PD or right on par with it.

That's all the further I can throw em too. I get to around 350 on a good drive with a 170g S-PD.

I wasn't even requiring people to tell me what I should throw...I'm just curious what people pair with their PD's and WHY. (For what shots)
