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.

I had a Z Flick in my bag a couple years ago that got flippy. I had to pull it. It wouldn't work properly for sidearms, and wanted to flip over and never come back. When I throw a Flick, I want that...

Most discs I ever found in a day was 86. Those were what I deemed keepable. I ditched all the really poor quality DX or other cheap plastic discs. Total number was well over 100.

It was seriously...

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...

Yeah, my concern about Thunderbirds turning is that they'll be inconsistent in headwinds. I won't really call the Thunderbird a great headwind driver, but mine will stay surprisingly steady unless...

I throw my champion 175g Thunderbird out near 400' without any high speed turn. It'll stay flat for a long time, but no turn.

Only Thunderbird I've thrown that had high speed turn was a G*.

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

The Shryke is less prone to flipping.

I do like the Daedalus, but I find it has a small window of...

300' probably isn't far enough to warrant throwing something 12+ speed. Instead, you might look at something like an Orc, Teebird, or even Valkyrie. For 300' you won't need a very overstable disc.

It took me a while to dial in the Shryke too. I was all over the place with it at first. The Raider I loved immediately. I throw it flat and it has a very tight, long S curve flight without a dumpy...

I probably have a dozen Sheriffs. All over the spectrum on stability. Lucid Sheriffs tend to do well on flat releases. I'll get turn on them, but they always come back.

I've bagged a 12X Teebird for a while. Nice, marbled (luster?) champion plastic. I think a 12X Teebird can be every bit as good as an 11X.

The mold itself is simply outstanding.

You need a star Shryke. Find a domey one 170g+ and you'll love it.

Other than the Tern, I can't even think of another long distance driver mold with as much easy glide as the Shryke.... and I've...

A star or champion Shryke will have that flight. If you want the heavier fade, get a champion. If you get a Shryke, get a domey one. Flat Shrykes tend to be somewhat glideless and much shorter than...

Of the two, I prefer the Shryke. Sheriffs and Shrykes have a similar flight, but I feel like Shrykes flex out better and have a more gradual (less dumpy) fade than a Sheriff. Plus, Sheriffs are all...

I'll say Discraft Flick. Most people probably haven't seen or thrown a Flick. Its a very fast, glideless, versatile overstable driver. Great for hook shots around obstacles and sidearm shots.

I found Terns for a while too....and then suddenly it seemed like Shrykes started replacing the Terns.

Both seem to be frequently lost molds.

Ape or XCal would probably be my first 2 choices for long, glidey overstable discs. Those 2 are overstable, but also combine good glide. They aren't useless meathooks.

Tough loss. Those Augusta Wraiths are (IMO) the best ones ever produced. I think those are what caused people to love that mold in the first place.
