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.

I agree with this. Throwing the disc high and anny for distance produces my best power. I get these crazy sweeping S curves that stay in the air forever. That said, the consistency is awful. There...

You can stick with the hyzerflips, just pick a disc with slightly more beef. A heavy star Shryke would probably work, as would a lucid Sheriff or star Katana. You'll get the high speed turn, but the...

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...

A good alternative to blizz Katanas are G* Katanas. They're still flippy, but not uncontrollable junk like blizzards are.

A G* Katana can take a lot of arm on a hyzerflip and cruise well over 400'...

I agree. When there are hundreds of molds available its hard for any one of them to really get noticed enough to become a classic.

Most of Innova's classic discs were pioneers, the first of their...

So, I found a disc that can match a Shryke for sheer distance. The Knight! My god this thing bombs. Unknown and underrated. I had the gold line Knight in the field vs. a G* Shryke today. It was...

Threw a 165g Icon Cannon in the field today. I figured at that weight the disc would be flippy. It was. Lots of speed and turn. Overall I was fairly disappointed in the performance though. This...

I'd choose the Raider over the Enforcer. Its a speed faster and quite a bit longer.

The Enforcer seemed to work well for controlled distance. I was really liking how accurate it was. I was ripping...

Based on what I saw today I probably wouldn't bag both. They fly too similarly .

Enforcer

Threw an Enforcer for the first time today (yeah, I know I'm really late to the game here). Either Biofuzion or Fuzion plastic, I can't tell which. Disc has a custom stamp. 172g.

Pretty...

I haven't thrown a Buzzz lately, but in the old days I always thought Z Buzzes were better than ESPs. I think McBeth has made ESP Buzzzes cool again.

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...

Pharaoh didn't really do a ton for me. It wasn't that I didn't like it, but it wasn't unique in any way, and I wasn't noticing any distance gain over similar drivers. It flew like a beefy, somewhat...

An anny throw definitely needs height. You want the disc to flex out in a big S curve pattern. You won't get that if you throw too low. Also, you need to find a disc that isn't too understable. You...

Grip is one of those things I probably don't put enough thought into. One thing I WILL say is that throttling down hard on the disc through the whole throw doesn't produce very good results. As...

Tried a very lightweight Shryke today. 152g star. I was expecting a super flippy, long, glidey disc. That's pretty much exactly what I got. Thrown downwind the light Shryke was great. Big, high,...

Ballista Pro

So, I threw my 2nd Ballista Pro today. Opto, 169g. The one I'd thrown prior was swirled Opto 174g.

Anyway, the 169 Opto is a LOT less stable. I won't quite call it flippy, but the disc has high...

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...

Try an Archon. Same speed as a Wraith, but a touch mellower. PD2 is pretty overstable.

I don't think its a plus mold, but the rim is very shallow and wide. I noticed a few bad releases too. I think the rim on the BPro is shallower than the regular Ballista.
