Default Wide s-turn 300' fairway driver

Looking for a fairway driver that will give me some good s-turn lines with flat or slight hyzer release at 300' power. Something that will give me good amount of turn, but always come back strong at the end. Preferably as it beats in it loses HSS but not LSS. I'm thinking mid-160's DX Eagle-X. From what I've read I'd expect it to start out OS for me, but quickly work into what I want. Sound good? Any better suggestions?

At 300' of power? I've never seen a champ eagle that will flip at that power...

Get a dx eagle. They are great, and if you like it you could try a lighter G* eagle. Even those won't flip at 300' of power out of the box, but with a little use it should do exactly what you want and have a longer life than a dx. The eagle is a mold that works great in dx though.

I'm also a big fan of FDs. Definitely a different disc than an eagle, but an S FD or G FD could work as well.

Not at 300' unless he is throwing with sharp anny...which he said he isn't....

I'd say you're on the right track with the dx eagle, good call. And clard is right about the gstar, works in at about the same rate as pro.

QOLF and Orc come to mind, although they're a little faster.

Edit: maybe if you're looking for slower I would go for the Squall or the KaxeZ. Squalls are very nice.

Inspire. It's like a 7 speed Valkyrie. If you can throw a fairway 300', it will S for you nicely.

Leopard, Patriot, Eagle "L", lighter weight Eagle "X" in star plastic after a bit of beating in and a DX Eagle "X" would all be my recommendations.

Eagle L in champ should get some turn and fade IMO. My wife throws Leos for that shot too.

At 300' of power, I'd say Star Leopard.
