I'd be highly dubious. There's a difference between easy distance and being so flippy you can't throw it flat at all. A 150 Tern would be too flippy to get any sort or yardage out of.

I've thrown...

Throwing into a headwind, I'm going with something that has at least a 2 for fade. The wind will naturally help a disc turn. If you have no late fade, the disc will never come back.

Of all Westside's discs, the Queen would be the first to go if it were up to me. I've only thrown 1 Queen, and I hated it. Really fast, flippy, and not exceptionally long. For whatever reason the...

My champion Teebird is good for 370' or so without turning over. Champions don't really break in. If you want a Teebird to break in, check out G*.

Yeah, I wouldn't take my star Destroyer out of the bag for either of my proto Kongs. The Kongs are beefier and shorter than the Destroyer I throw. My 2 Kongs remind me of really flat, stubborn 4X...

I agree on the DDX. Not one of my absolute longest discs, but it'll surprise you with how far it goes. The DDX has noticeable high speed turn, but enough late fade that it always comes back at the...

Westside should cut the following high speed drivers:

Queen
Sorcerer
Catapult
Either King or Destiny. Keep one of the two, but not both. They're too similar.

Kong

Finally got to throw another Kong today. This is another of the ESP prototypes (as is my other Kong). The one I threw today was noticeably flatter. No real dome at all. The weight sticker is gone, so...

I'd put G* Shrykes among my top 2 or 3 longest molds. They're flippy, but the distance is effortless.

IMO Shrykes and Terns are the 2 best hyzerflip molds on the market for sheer distance.

Dimension

I threw a Dimension for the first time today. Neutron plastic, unknown weight. Here are my thoughts:

Very wide, deep, sharp rim. In your hand this disc feels like a weapon. Average dome. The disc...

For real easy distance I like lightweight, flippy discs. Stuff like blizzard Bosses or Katanas. Also, star Terns and Shrykes will do the job. Right now I'd say my longest disc is a 160g star Tern. It...

I dig my Raider, but I probably wouldn't throw it in any headwind situation. It just doesn't have enough late fade to fight back at the end of flight.

The Defender would work better for headwinds....

This. I carry a Thunderbird. The next step up for me is a star Destroyer. I don't have a ton of use for 10 or 11 speed.

I carry a few faster/longer discs for shots the Destroyer can't quite get...

The Destiny is super finicky. It almost sounds like you're ready for some beefier distance drivers.

If I were you I'd look around for a domey star Katana. Those things bomb, but aren't super...

DDXs are pretty good drivers, and a little underrated IMO. They tend to be a little flatter and have less glide than Terns. They're also less prone to random flipping. S line DDXs can take a big rip...

Corvette

I put some more throws on the star Corvette today. First time I'd thrown in over 3 weeks.

I figure I threw the disc about 15-20 times. I'm starting to like this disc more than I did before. Its a...

First run Sidewinder. Oldie, and fairly rare. Valuable too.

Only disc I've seen with that stamp. Rim looks right too.

It 100% isn't a Groove.

I've never even seen a Shryke that light. Try one at about 170g and you'll have way better results. A Shryke will flip, but it isn't as touchy as a Daedalus.

Nukes are actually fairly beefy. At 330' you shouldn't be seeing any turn out of a Nuke, and the disc will behave in a very overstable fashion. 330' is nowhere near enough arm to get high speed turn...

Once you start getting past 350' you'll notice the Daedalus start getting flippy.
