Heavier fairway drivers than max distance drivers?
 
Hey all just want to get some opinions on varying disc weights. I started playing this year and originally all my discs were under 170g but the more I played, I found heavier weighted putters and mids worked much better for me but my distance drivers are still most comfortable at 167-170. Since I am in the market for a few new fairway drivers, is it a good idea to step up the weight a bit from my max distance drivers or do most stick with similar weights between their fairway drivers (speed 5-7) and max distance drivers (speed 9-13)?

Thanks all!

How far are you throwing the 167-170 high speeds? Which high speeds too, overstable, understable?

How far would you throw a gazelle (or equivalent of) compared to how far you throw a wraith (or equivalent of)?

I cannot say for sure what works or will work for you, but I throw my OLF's in the 168-171 range and my ESP cyclones anywhere from 171 to 174. Most of the weight difference in my cyclones is a function of needing the right color for the correct dome I look for. I would buy one in the weight that you throw your drivers in and then try one heavier, side by side. You may find a difference, but my guess is the difference will be negligible.

I would have to agree that the difference between heavier putters and mids would be much more dramatic than heavier fairways.

Currently I use my Gazelle (167 CFR Champ) for shots 220-280. My driver of choice atm is my Wraith (168 Champ) which I use for max distance (320-350).

Thanks again for the feedback.

Until you add another 50 ft. to each example, I'd stay right where you're at on weights.

If you wanted to test it though, just pick up a cheap 170-172 DX Gazelle and see how it compares to the 167 Champ version distancewise.

I'd stick with the same weights and start trying to push the fairway drivers out farther rather than moving up in weight.
