It would probably still go right with my 120' of raw lefty power.

I throw the Champ proto tern and the Star Tern. I have not broken in the Star Tern yet.
But after dozens of rounds with the Champ proto I find myself not even reaching for my 5x Valk anymore.
This disc loves a calm day or slight tailwind and can just straight out fly.
Anny release has produced some beautiful S curve distance drives 350-380.
Overpowing this disc has mixed results, think a Beast with a noodle arm described it best for me.
Champ is 175 and Star is 172.

and while I watch football I am not now or have I ever been a Saints fan.

That hole does NOT have an elevated pad. The hole is flat for about 280 then has a HILL that goes up about 30-40 feet. At the top it levels off and the basket is up there... I've played the course at least 8 times. Perhaps you are thinking about 17... which does tee elevated over the flat land at the bottom of the sled hill and the basket is up a steep hill protected by small bushes.

Sorry, not elevated. It's been about 8 years, but my memory is pretty decent.

I have a 175 Jolly and you can definitely flip these more easily than a Destroyer.

This disc has kind of a weird flight but I can see some real potential. It actually holds it own in the wind pretty well too. I feel like I can still get my Pro Wraith out farther on a similar flight path though, so the jury is still out as to whether or not I will carry it.

So, would you say my calling it a finesse driver is pretty accurate?

Re elevated teepad at Kensington #13...the hole plays up hill, but from the teepad you're initally throwing over an approx 150 ft downgrade. I consider that an elevated tee, others may not.

I've played many mountain courses where the teepad is elevated while the end of the hole(basket) is on an upgrade that may be level with the teepad, 400-500 ft out. So, throwing from an elevated teepad over a big drop(or valley) to a basket on another ridge equates to an elevated teepad, not level ground, IMO...and most others, BTW. The teepad is either elevated or not, irrespective of where the basket is.

Kensington #13 may not be the best example, but it is initially downhill from the teepad.

Who really cares? It was a minor point re a video of Feldberg throwing from #13.
