I don't know what started it, but it all seems to be driven by the disc manufacturers' distance war. How about an accuracy war. I also wish they made more of the old-school fairway drivers in the premium plastics. I had to order a Star Cheetah from that rip-off Innova Factory store.

If you can throw a Banshee over 400' you need to get some faster drivers. You're looking at over 500' with something like a Nuke, and 450'-475' hyzers with a Destroyer/Force/PD2 type overstable power driver. They're really not any harder to control than an Eagle when you've got the power to work them.

I'd also consider getting a blizzard disc for those open holes where you really need to bomb something without worrying about accuracy as much. That's my set up. Fastest things I throw are teebirds and orcs which I barely consider drivers. With the exception of a blizz wraith when I need a few extra feet

It's been happening since Innova released their first beveled edge disc, the Eagle. If y'all were really cool you'd just throw lids 400'.

If I find a disc in the woods odds are good it's a Boss or a Nuke. More than likely a newb who got seduced by the high speed but wasn't able to control it.

Discgolfcenter.com is the most accurate representation of all discs, in my opinion. The first number is difficulty or ease of use (warp speed and overstable molds have a higher number) and then the next four numbers are speed, glide, turn, and fade that we are all used to reading. I love Marshall Street for ordering but have found way too many flaws on their chart.

I keep a Vulcan for windy day when I need to throw in to the wind. But for the most part I throw Leopards & Sidewinders.

I do like the Champion Mamba. On open holes I can throw the mamba about 40'-50' farther than my other drivers.

I have learned in the past few tournaments that I need to disc down during the second round. About half way through the afternoon round my arm speed drops so much that I can't even straighten out my 150 Sidewinder. So all I'll throw is my Leopards.

I lose some distance but instead of my drive heading off in to a bad spot for bogey I have a straight shot that allows me to hit my upshot for par.

I just don't see why anyone would want to limit their game in any way. No, you should not be using ultra-high speed drivers on short holes like I see a lot of people doing. However, why would you limit yourself in the discs you throw? So you want to have a bag made up of mostly midranges and fairways? Cool.. You can still throw in 1 pair of understable/overstable high speed drivers to pull out when you really need the D.
