I have a Relativity I'm waiting to try. Snow just needs to melt. Just looking at and holding this disc I can tell its going to smash.

Octane's a pretty good choice too. I agree its similar to a...

I think dome size does matter, and it should definitely affect your choice(s) if you're in a disc store feeling up some discs to possibly buy. For drivers, higher dome generally equals more glide,...

The Beast L mold is garbage. Its been out forever. For me it feels like a clunkier Sidewinder. Its a sluggish flier and can be really flippy. The Beast X was a wondrous mold. It was a hair flippier...

You must have gotten a bad one. Thunderbirds are generally somewhat overstable, but they glide well and don't have a really dumpy fade.

The champion Thunderbird in my bag will go dead straight...

This. Trilogy discs don't seem to beat worse than other brands, but they definitely do become understable faster. I'll use the Sheriff and Trespass as examples. Those two seem to get flippy fast. The...

This is the main reason I don't really delve into Trilogy discs. I actually like a lot of their molds, but their premium plastics aren't even half as durable as Discraft or Innova's. Even Trilogy's...

I dislike blizzard discs for anything on the course, but I will agree they absolutely bomb in the field. I've thrown an array of blizz Katanas and Bosses. They're all super long. Wildly flippy, but...

Based on your description, I'd say you need to try a Discmania DD3. The one I have is domier than most Destroyers I've ever seen, and flies magnificently. It has a little high speed turn, which it...

Dynamic

Tough to say whether Dynamic has peaked as a company. I'm a fairly casual player. I'm not sponsored by anyone, and I throw anything I want. I throw whichever discs I honestly feel are best for me on...

Wave

I had way better luck with the Octane, Catalyst, and Mayhem. I know those are all faster, but I found them to be much better fliers overall than Waves.

I keep trying to like the Wave, but it...

I've thrown probably 6 Waves. Both types of plastic. I just don't much like them. They come out of the hand fast, but don't glide that well or go especially far. For what the disc does, a Tern is so...

My DD3 isn't a Cloudbreaker, but it sure seems to fly as you describe. Big dome too. More dome than probably any star Destroyer I've seen. Literally that perfect 12, 5, -1, 2 flight.... where the...

A Shryke or Thrasher will NOT need an anny release to achieve a distance line. Both of those discs are fairly fast, but they're also understable enough that they don't take a ton of arm to get up to...

I agree. Even when I was a crappy player years ago I'd throw Beasts well further than Teebirds. Faster discs will provide good distance, even with less than optimal arm speed.

The fact that the...

I throw distance drives probably 400' on average. With the right conditions or disc I can stretch that to 450'.

I stopped throwing Beasts when the L mold came out. I just didn't like them. They felt like slightly faster Sidewinders and had a lazy, almost clunky flight. Champion Beast Xs are very nice drivers....

I've only thrown 1 Savant, but for me it was slower and beefier than an Orc. Shorter too. If you want a less stable Orc, try a Beast X.

Savants are almost exactly like Thunderbirds. I have no clue why Innova even bothered making both molds.

IMO the Savant is a little clunkier and shorter than the Thunderbird.

Try a champion Roc3. It won't be ridiculously overstable, but it sure as heck won't flip either. Discmania MD5 is another good option if you want legit beef.

Its hard to really say you prefer a beat in disc vs. a naturally understable mold. Both will have their merits. I've thrown some really, really good beat in drivers. They tend to lose the high speed...
