TD Vs. Beast

I am looking for a disc that will be like a longer valkyrie. I throw the valk 300' and was looking for a disc that will get me a little extra distance. Any thoughts?

I have both the Valkyrie and the Beast, and I feel as though the Beast is exactly that - a longer Valkyrie.

the valk will go further than 300, so for you the valk is a longer valk.

I was throwing in a field yesterday and I was putting my valk, viking, and wraith out to 295-305 measured on a decent throw. my leopard was only about 20 feet short at 275. learning how to throw my leopard better will probably help me get my valk out past 300, but if i go to a beast, archon, or katana I will probably only throw them 300. moral of the story: throw what you got, or buy a leopard.

spoken like someone who understands the game, great advice
i'll put my FD to 380 and thats similar to a leopard

discing up for distance is going to reach a plateau of prob 310. good form will give you 320 with your mid

I understand not much difference in a field, but...
The Archon,Beast and Katana are faster, so if you were throwing uphill, wouldn't they reach a little further?
