To touch on the above post, if you can find a krait in star plastic (I have a halloween one) it is smooth smooth. Has nice glide and a very controllable flight.

^ I had a Black Star Krait with a pumpkin logo on it and lost it.

After a few years of playing and trying to throw high speed drivers I recently decided that I wasn't going to throw anything faster than a 9 speed with the exception of a Wraith for open field max D shots.

I think a Sidewinder or Saint are excellent choices for drivers and are way more reliable than anything faster.

Don't worry about your newb status, you're right. The Bliz Wraith is an awesome easy high speed disc. For beginner players, it should be a relatively straight flying disc. And for more experienced players, it can provide some huge s-curves. It definitely isn't thrown often, but when I get a good long open hole, or an uphill hole, my choice is the Bliz Wraith.

By the way, I have a 150 g. However, I'm curious as to how differently a 138 g would fly, since all the blizzard discs float under 140.

Easiest? Blizz Katana.

None. All warp speeders are nose sensitive, which makes them all hard to throw.
General rule is less stable for newbs, overstable for pros, so pick something from the right side of the flight chart if you just gotta have it to say you do.
King, Vulcan, Katana, Nuke SS, Diamond and the likes, but the better answer is to get a Star Wraith and learn it.

Personally I throw a blz boss if it's straight or dog legged left... but if there is ANY wind i expect it to go wherever it feels like going.

My go to was an older champion beast... oh how I miss that disc. It was 175g and went wherever it was pointed with some finesse.

The best advice I could give you is to try out your friends discs if they will let you, you never know they may want the one that has been collecting dust in your bag in trade for one of theirs.

My vote goes to the roadrunner. I've never thrown a mamba. I agree with most of the posts.

To the OP: do you have a local shop nearby? Most DG shops are pretty trustworthy if you come in and ask for advice. Some might even have some throwers for you to try. Or, at the very least, a used bin you can try. Its not bad to have a high-speed driver in the bag, if, for nothing else, to mess around with during field practice.. use fairways as your workhorse for awhile. I think you'll find (as I did after years of playing) that you'lll be throwing them more often anyway. I bag a lot of distance drivers, but my Saints and lower get much more work for sure.

Lots of good suggestions in this thread, hopefully you get to try a bunch out and find one that works for what you need.

I like heavier Blizz Katanas or lighter Mambas for easy big D. They'll land in the same neighborhood for me but in the air the Mamba often scares me into thinking it is going to turn forever, but it (almost) always comes back.
