Any driver suggestions?

I have been messing around a lot with max distance drivers. I have been having issues with consistently getting my drive out past 400'. The issue that has been arising for me is that I cannot find a dis that is stable enough but not too over-stable. I was using the 156 Blizzard Boss and started throwing rollers with it, then I tried the Nuke but didn't like it because the rim is GIGANTIC, then I tried the 174 Nuke SS and it ended up throwing a roller. I used to use 170 Forces but I just couldn't get it past the 350' mark at all. Anybody have any suggestions?

Distance Drivers

My two 400+ discs on a great day are none other than a NUKESS 177 and rare factory second ORC. Although the rim on even DX ORCS is one of a kind. Any idea on the Innova equivalent to Discrafts NUKE?

Tryout a WestSide Sword. Good distance meets control stable driver. Mine is VIP plastic (clear plastic like Opto)

Star Destroyer, non Vulcan top. You're welcome.

But you may get some hate about only throwing 400ft (+) that you need to stay away from high speeds. But it's what ever floats your boat.

I always love the 'Only 400+' comments. Like everyone else here can consistently get 400+ with 4 speed Rocs and 500+ with 7 speed Teebirds. So you're Nuke should be hitting AT LEAST 700..

I watched my buddy EricBasile blast a Teebird over 400 feet yesterday, so it is doable, but yeah, most people cant stretch a Fairway out that far.

I'm going to toss an unpopular suggestion out there: try a Krait. I love my Kraits (see my sig) and it was the first driver I got out over 400 feet. I have fat little sausage fingers, so I agree the wide-rimmed drivers can be tough to grip. I can blast a King, but the VIP Air is so understable that I generally have to hyzer flip, which works well for my grip.

I digress...
Try out a Krait. Ive found them to be pretty neutral/stable and very workable. Great for true golf shots, fights the wind well, can handle a flick and can also take quite a bit of mustard as well. Its a fun disc. Get one about 171-175 and throw it chest level, flat and hard. Watch it zip.
