A champion Starfire might work. It's overstable, but not uselessly so. The Starfire can be cranked out for good distance without worrying about it flipping.

I've run into a couple Shrykes that were stubbornly overstable. They don't glide, turn, or penetrate. For me they're useless. If I wanted that flight I'd choose a different mold. When I throw a...

Shrykes seem very weight dependent. By that I mean the lightweight ones will flip easily, and heavier ones usually won't. I'm guessing the pro 168g will be beefier than the 150s G*s.

Pro beats in...

I've only thrown 1 Raptor. Z, I forget the weight. No high speed turn. I could torque it over on an anny line, but thrown flat it would just hyzer out. The Raptor I have is a tad mellower than a...

G* Corvettes have more glide and turn than stars. They fly like a somewhat beat in Katana. Tons of glide.

Pink Hades

Back in the field with the (flippy) pink ESP Hades today. I threw this disc for the first time last week and found it almost unbearably flippy.

Today was a calmer day, so I figured I'd try it...

I probably won't ever throw a Harp in base plastic. All the mids I dabble in are good plastic. I don't like fooling around with discs that wear out quickly and lose their flight characteristics.

I decided to throw all 3 of these in the bag today for a round to see how they stack up against each other. My local course has plenty of short holes where overstable putter/mids work well off the...

I had the same issue with the Buzzz. On hard shots it'd drift right and never come back. You definitely can't rely on any sort of late fade with a Buzzz. I get that. The disc is supposed to be...

D2

D2 is a pretty basic speed 13 driver. It reminds me a lot of a Boss or Nuke. Wide rim, fairly neutral stability. Most D2s I've seen are something like 13, 5, -1, 3.

The Trespass, Captain,...

I agree with this. I don't usually pack special discs based on wind conditions. I carry a pretty wide gamut of stabilities in the bag all the time.

Half the discs in my bag may never get...

Could be, I haven't looked. The Criminal is too close to the Felon to keep both in the lineup. The Felon seems much more popular. I can't even say which mold I like better. They fly almost identical...

Lately, the Z Zone is getting a ton of use. The course I frequent has a lot of short holes, so I throw it a lot off the tee. I've also been known to putt with it in windy conditions. It's also good...

I agree the Torrent is underrated. For me it flew like a slightly less stable Nuke.

Hand feel

"Weird" hand feel for me just means the disc doesn't sit comfortably, or you don't feel like you're getting a proper grip on it because of the rim.

Hand feel is a thing, and I won't use certain...

Elevation is supposed to make a disc fly more overstable. I don't really have any basis for comparison, though. I've never thrown a disc anywhere other than CO.

Champion XCaliber, Champion Firebird, Z Zone..... for headwinds.

Downwind you can pull out the flippy stuff.

Really long, but super touchy. I've gone over 450' with the Crank SS, but it's one of the most finicky discs I've ever thrown.

Very capable of huge distance though.

I've decided to compile a brief list of the drivers I feel are super long, but underrated. The discs no one really seems to throw or talk about much.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a super domey Tern. They tend to be a little on the flat side. If you want something flippy with dome, have a look at the Daedalus.

The Hades is a far better option than a Nuke SS overall. Its less finicky and will go every bit as far on a full rip.

It can't hurt. If you hit small branches, a heavy disc will smash through them easier than a light one. Obviously against larger limbs the disc weight isn't going to matter.
