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.

The hand feel of the Roc3 isn't the greatest thing ever, but that disc does its job well. I threw a Z Buzz and then an EMac Truth. Once I changed out to the champion Roc3 my shots improved...

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.

I personally use a Lat64 Pain as an...

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...

I have a whole bunch of different Shrykes in all plastics. The Karina Nowles one is WAY flatter than all of them. I just don't like the way it flies. Something similar to a Freedom. Lots of high...

The worst Shryke I own is a Karina Nowles glow champion. The thing is super flat and doesn't glide very well. Its also really understable with a hooky fade. Of all my Shrykes is probably the worst...

DD3

I threw a DD3 for the first time today. S line 175g. Here are my thoughts:

Upon initial examination, this disc looks EXACTLY like a domey star Destroyer. Holding the 2 discs up side by side you...

I pulled a 152g star Shryke out of the lake last weekend. I'm curious to see what it'll do. Part of me thinks its going to be too flippy to even throw effectively. Its that cheap, almost blizzardy...

G* Shrykes are super long. You might also try a star Shryke if you ever get a chance. I've surpassed 450' with both.

Also, give the star Tern a look. They're every bit as long as Shrykes, maybe...

I agree. I've thrown some absolutely RIDICULOUS Nukes. And these weren't Nuke OS's either.

Ti or FLX Z Nukes aren't even really throwable for distance.

Any wide rimmed driver is going to run...

Most Flicks I've thrown have been pretty consistent. They have a flat portion of flight before they fade out pretty hard. I did have to take a Z Flick out of my bag couple years ago because...

Agree that the Flick isn't a very good headwind disc when you want your shot to stay firmly hyzer or flat. Flicks can go from hyzer to flipped in a surprisingly small amount of headwind.

In calm...

I've thrown several Flicks, and never seen a really brutal one. For me a Flick will actually ride flat for a bit before fading hard.

I've found the Nuke OS to be WAAAAYYY more overstable than any...

This sentence is the key to the whole thing. Throw the slowest disc that will reach the distance you need. I learned this the hard way. I'd try to take too much off of fast drivers for shorter throws...

Every speed disc has a place, assuming you have the arm for them.

The OG poster seems to throw ridiculously far with slow drivers. He won't need to even bother with speed 13-14.

Most overstable disc I've run across in nearly 20 years of playing was a super flat Z Nuke OS. No glide and no distance. Its like throwing a table saw blade. There isn't a wind out there that would...

I don't have a ton of experience with Teebird 3s. What I've seen is that they fly the same lines as Thunderbirds, but 20-30' shorter. Neither disc will have high speed turn, and both will have a...

I've only thrown 1 Raider, and its a Fuzion 168g. This disc is flippier than almost any star Destroyer I've thrown. It bends to the right on hard rips and flexes out nicely. I won't call it flippy,...

Yeah, the Sail is quite a bit flippier than a Heat. I think its made for guys who throw maybe a hair over 300'. Any more than that and the Sail will flip bad.

The Sail is a LOT flippier. Domier and weirder feeling in the hand too.

I'd put the Sail at -5 high speed turn. It will burn into the ground with little effort. The Sail is a disc for soft finesse...

The Shryke seems to have a deeper rim. I agree the Tern is very shallow. So are the Katana and Vulcan.

IMO the Tern is the biggest "cheater" disc out there. Big dome and a super shallow rim. It...
