I like that they at least didn't name this disc "Zeus SS". I find it annoying when companies (especially Discraft) take an established mold and then basically tweak it and add SS to the name. If...

The EMac Truth is one of those molds I wanted to like, but didn't. Its simply finicky. Thrown hard, it flips over randomly and never comes back. I had a lot better luck with champion Roc3s. They stay...

Unrelated to the thread, but I think Trilogy's best overall driver is the Raider. Someone obviously put some care into designing that mold. It performs spectacularly.

I agree that many of...

I like Innova drivers too. For the most part they put out a very reliable product. My only real problem is that they have ENTIRELY too many molds. To the point its become ridiculous.

Innova is at...

I'm still a bit baffled by the whole Victus thing. They're completely overlapping the Starfire with that one.

Innova is the king of making redundant molds.

I agree. You could buy a stack of 5 star Destroyers from any era and have a couple in there be pretty flat.

It isn't like flat star Destroyers are new. In all honesty, almost every Avery...

Well, with a Firebird you want beefy and glideless.

With a Tern I want absolute max distance and the best glide possible. Glow plastic works well in some molds, not so well in others.

I also...

Especially since it has the same flight numbers as the Starfire or PD.

Innova already makes a driver with those exact numbers..... the Starfire! Only they would do something like this.

Kinda like with the Thunderbird and Savant.

Freedom is flat garbage. Even if you hyzerflip it the disc will most likely turn and burn. The Freedom is really long, but extremely hard to get on a good distance line. All the thing wants to do is...

I'd say Thunderbird. Same flight as a Teebird, but a bit more distance. It can be used as a fairway or distance driver.

2020 longest discs

I'm not going to start a new thread on this, but I'll just list what are currently my longest discs. Some things change in a couple years, and some don't.

1: G* Shryke. This disc was at the top of...

I agree on the Mamba. I don't throw them often, and they don't really suit my game. However, they are probably the longest speed 11 disc I know of. Every once in a while in the field I'll take a...

I used to bag a max weight Augusta CFR Wraith about 10 years ago. Great disc. Probably the best Wraith I own. Really mellow. Great glide, and it holds the high speed turn for a long time. Gradual...

Flippy, but super long. Don't throw it into a headwind. G* Shrykes are really fun, but not always the most consistent. They take a little while to learn.

Be patient with that disc and practice...

Well, Innova does emboss the name of the mold on the disc now. Not really an excuse for an "accident" of putting the wrong stamp on all those discs.

Honestly, Innova should just stop making the...

I've probably thrown at least 10 Sheriffs. All plastics. Fuzions are the longest, by far. Some of them are super understable and will flip hard if thrown flat. Lucid Sheriffs are better if you're...

I don't currently have a Raider in the bag, but that might change. If I bagged a Raider it would be taking the place of my Torrent, Boss, or Nuke. IMO the Raider flies like all 3 of those, but with a...

Threw my 2nd Raider last weekend. Fuzion 173g. My other Raider is Fuzion 168g.

Obviously the 5 gram weight difference is noticeable when you throw. The 173 Raider has just a bit less high speed...

If you want a Wraith type disc, but a hair flippier, try an Archon. They fly really well. You won't have to go super light to get that flight out of it either.

The Mystere might also be a disc you...
