Depending on the particular shot, pretty much anything in my bag except the destroyers is fair game. Most of the time I like something that will fly dead straight with less power so I'd say the Leopards, Buzzz, or Fuse get the most work. If the line is stupid narrow, I might use a wizard just so if I nail a tree it won't go ricocheting off into the rough.

Discraft ESP XL. Dead straight nuts.

Used it tonight to get out of trouble twice at Acorn Park in Roseville, MN.

i think i may need to get something that'll go a ways down the fair but with less power needed because sometimes i try and rip my teebirds and they just end up flying into the woods to the right because I'm trying to throw it too hard

Typically, something with little fade. Depending on length:
Challenger, Comet, perhaps an ESP Buzzz, Leopard. If really long, I might use a beat Beast, but am more likely to conced so D and use nothing faster than a Leopard and give myself a better chance of staying in the fairway.

Also, I tend to disc up and underpower a bit to avoid turning over. Most of these are seasoned enough that they don't fade hard at all. Like this guy said:

In the process of "re-discovering" the XL.

There are a few tightly wooded courses that I play on a regular basis. I mainly throw fairway drivers (teebirds, rivals, volts) and mids (buzzzs, wasps) off the tees. The fastest driver ill throw on these courses are orcs, but ill really only use those on confident 350+ shots. Might throw a valk on the longer ones as well depending on basket placement

Really depends on the line. I throw most of my discs in the woods because I prefer wooded courses to open ones. Main "woods" discs would probably be Pure, Buzzz, Pain, Comet, Gazelle, Firebird.
