I definitely get more distance with a Raider vs. a star Destroyer. The Destroyer is a tad beefier, and will fade sooner and harder. My Raider doesn't turn a lot, but it holds flat for a very long...

I definitely get more turn, glide, and overall distance with a Shryke than a Raider. I use the Shryke for open field hyzerflip bombs. It does well in calm or downwind conditions, but is poor in any...

My Raider is the same weight and plastic as yours. I love it. I agree it flies like a faster Wraith. What really sells me on the Raider is the fact that it isn't in any hurry to fade. It goes...

This. My Kong/Zeus flies EXACTLY like a Force. Feels like one in the hand too.

I want one of the flippier ones. Mine is really beefy.

I agree. I don't like ANY flat distance drivers, other than perhaps very overstable stuff. If I'm looking for max glide and distance, I want dome.

Flat Shrykes stink. My Raider isn't flat, but it...

All I know is that when the Surge came out I tried it and immediately liked it more than the Wraith. Its a tad mellower, and doesn't have as much late fade. I could always get better distance with...

I know Nate Doss had his name on the ESP Surge a few years ago. I agree, you don't see Surges around much anymore. Too bad, its still a good mold. Nice, mellow speed 11 driver with good glide. I like...

Yeah, I try to give a disc quite a few throws in varying conditions before I come on here and voice opinions about it. Obviously I've only thrown the 1 Fuzion Raider. I'd be interested to try that...

I find I can hammer on my Raider better than my Ballista Pro. The Ballista Pro is way faster, but it won't hold flat as long. It wants to fade sooner, and more harshly than the Raider. The Raider...

I've only thrown a Fuzion Raider, but I'd agree it feels quite a bit like a champion Shryke.

Champion Shrykes can take a surprising amount of arm and not flip. I also think they glide a hair less...

Raider

I've found another shot the Raider is really good at.....huge, high anhyzers. I found that if I force the Raider over on a really high anny line that it will bomb. It swoops along in an exaggerated S...

For me the Raider is just a tad more overstable than a Shryke. It also doesn't quite have that floaty glide a Shryke does either. You could probably bag both and find uses for both.

The Heat is the ONLY driver I've tried in Z FLX that flew decent. Mine will turn, but I won't call it overly flippy. Good glide out to near 400' and very straight.

G* works great for drivers. FLX does not. The stuff feels good in your hand, but it flies really badly.

FLX is very frustrating stuff.

Z FLX is really poor plastic for glide and distance. I've hated every driver I've ever thrown in that plastic.

As for wanting a Crank with less fade, try a Shryke. I find the Shryke quite a bit...

If you're only throwing a Saint 300', a Getaway is going to feel pretty clunky and overstable. Getaways like to be thrown hard, and you'll probably need 360' power to really flatten them out.

I agree with all of this. You have to experiment with release angles and learn to throw different lines. Everything from hyzerflips to high anny releases. There isn't really a magic 400' driver, but...

If I'm throwing Terns for sheer distance, give me star. For whatever reason those things absolutely MASH. The trick is finding one that has enough late fade to come back late in flight. Some...

350' is about the top end distance you can expect out of a DX Beast. Time to upgrade. Wraith is a decent idea.

You might also try to find a champion Beast X. They're a bit beefier than the DX...

I think the Ballista Pro is too much disc for 360' max power. At that distance you aren't going to really turn it or see it flex out for big yardage.

You might try a Trespass or something like...

Star or G* Shryke is probably the easiest way to turn 375' into 400'. They're flippy, but not uncontrollably so. Lots of glide and big S curve flights. Nothing Discmania makes will fly like a Shryke....

Nope, just a couple regular Z Nuke OSs. Those things are plenty overstable.

I recently threw a FLX Nuke that behaved just like a Nuke OS. It was even flat as a board.
