Sidearm Driver

Trying to branch out from Innova and learn other plastics

I'm a newbie, throw a TeeBird fairly well sidearm. Wanting to try to add distance, but don't want to go to some crazy speed disc. Any suggestions on a good driver for a medium arm?

Discmania S-PD is a great forehand driver that is a step up from the Teebird. Carries straight and has a reliable fade, and is not too fast or overstable where you can't just pop it out there too.

He's trying to branch out ...

An Avenger, from Discraft; a Volt, from MVP; an Assassin, from Gateway; an Escape, from DD

All of those should be something close to what you're looking for. Everyone makes good discs, and most discs have a flight description on them. Find something with a HSS of 0 or -1 in the speed range you're looking for, and they'll probably fly just fine.

MVP Volt shock tesla are all nice slightly OS drivers with solid HSS to handle FH torque and get some nice D.

Axiom wrath and fireball also are worth checking out but will fly OS.

You can find all of these molds in 15Xg to 175g. I suggest going lighter to get more D and less harsh of fade.

MVP makes a light weight distance driver called the Photon also which has a bigger rim size but available in 13Xg to 15Xg and very easy to throw far.

Not me with the roadrunner, that's Gary! I hated that disc. I'm thinking maybe Turner Park? I'd like to go to Weatherford, since you jerks went without me last weekend lol
