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...

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.

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...

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...

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.
