+1 - try out the Hornet and Zone. Both are beadless and pretty OS (the Zone moreso than the Hornet).

The Hornet is NOT beadless. It most definitely has a bead (it's even odd compared to other beads). Bumping old threads to spread bad information...and so the ME behavior begins...

Yup! My good friend at the time Peter Albers broke the record with a 169 gram Viper here in San Diego at WFDF. I don't think it should be in the mategory, more like a nairway driver.

I endorse the Star Cro, as a few others have. Its smaller diameter might also give you the confidence in tighter shots through the trees. It's a versatile disc. I wasn't big on it at first until I found it's role. I use it a lot now.

I'm sure the other suggestions are good too. But the Cro is all I know that fits this category well.

Because it flies like one. We all know it is wide rimmed like a driver, but it cruises more at midrange speeds.
