You ever tried a 150g McBeth star Destroyer? It sounds like a wimpy disc in such a light weight.... until you throw it. That disc takes pretty much all the arm I have to turn. Thing is, it holds the...

I threw an air World a few times... that thing is long. It'll flip on you, but generally has enough late fade to come back.

If you haven't given the Raider a look you might want to. Flies like a...

Surge. Same speed, but a bit more overstable. I think the Surge is simply a better mold than the Thrasher.

The 1 Z Thrasher I've ever thrown was ridiculously flippy junk. Even a steep hyzer...

Keep in mind that the regular Ballista is quite a bit flippier than the Ballista Pro. If you get one you'll turn it over easier.

For sheer distance in calm conditions I'd probably take the...

The Raketen is underrated. I have one, and I love it. Little flippy, but huge glide. Very similar in flight to a Shryke for me.

I only have 1 Ballista Pro, and I don't see much flex out of it. The disc is still good for 400', but its straight with no turn. Most of that disc's distance comes from sheer speed. It doesn't glide...

Star or G* Shryke. Mellow flight with some high speed turn. You won't find anything longer with a similar flight.

Further, if I'm stating what distance I'm throwing, its flat ground. I'm not going to make some miraculous shot off a mountain that goes 600' and then claim I'm a 600' thrower. I use Google Earth to...

I don't play DG competitively. I play it as a hobby. I don't exaggerate distances when I discuss discs.

My best distance is right around 450' on a good day. I won't even see that very often. If...

Catalysts are fun. They're somewhat flippy. Take the disc to an open field and practice before you take it on the course. You have to learn the proper amount of hyzer to release it on.

For me the...

Shryke is 2 speeds faster and not quite as flippy. Thrashers are touchy, and can be difficult to keep on a flat line.

Maybe he wants a speed 13 because the Force and Kong/Zeus are somewhat short and beefy. I feel like the star Destroyer outflies either of them.

Plus (as mentioned), any disc Paul comes out with...

Its a marketing ploy to dupe people into dropping $30 for a disc that usually costs $18. You're basically getting a Thunderbird with a Savant stamp.

I won't call the Zeus a bad disc, but Discraft (and Paul) really didn't need it in their lineup. Turns out there's already a perfect speed 12 disc that Discraft has made for years.... the Punisher. I...

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

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.

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...
