Looking for a good driver to improve form/overall distance
 
Hey everyone, a lot of people say to use an aviar, roc, and teebird from innova to improve form and distance and not to touch high speed distance drivers. So I'm looking for some recommendations. I'm figuring an ion or envy for a putter and an alias or an axis for a mid but am coming up with nothing for a beginning driver.

Options I've come across while browsing on discgolfcenter.com are:
Relay,
Switch,
Amp,
Streamline drift

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance

Relay for sure. Another midrange you might want to look at, is the Tangent. Its one of those discs that make form flaws very apparent. They pretty much straddle the center line of the flight chart. So if your torqueing, sawing it off or throwing nose up, it will let you know because it isn't flying dead straight. It will also help you work on your snap on release. It isn't the glidiest mid out there, so you really have to get a clean release to make it fly properly.

Neutral discs are best for form. Comets may be the most neutral disc available. IMO any straight flying disc will be fine, from putters to speed 6-7.

Inertia, perhaps. Impulse is understable, but may be good for working on form.

I actually have a tangent I throw already. If I release it straight it has a bit of late turn to it which I like. I can get it out to 300-310 on non windy days. Biggest issue I have is I'm only getting drivers out to 340-350 with a Vanish, Mayhem, Tenacity. So I'm either strongarming or getting the nose up a bit, not getting the elbow out enough or something.

I hear ya. Putters and mids are great, but nobody plays disc golf to stop at speed 5. Relay is solid.

Sting seems like a new, exciting good one in premium plastic.

DX Leopard is safe, and will beat into a useful roller/flipmaster. DX Teebird is probably also good. If you want to go a little faster or more beefy, I think you can't go wrong with a Leopard or Leo3 in any plastic, a TL, or even a Sidewinder/Roadrunner. Plus, everyone needs to own at least one Valkyrie, so that's probably safe.

My River likes to only be thrown perfectly :/

You guys did notice the MVP prefix, right?... its obvious that the comet would be the disc for form work but since he added the prefix, I didn't suggest it...

Ahhh! Missed that!
Sorry, ignore my previous post then.
