I'd recommend a star or G* Shryke. It would fit between the Trespass and Bolt. I personally have had lousy luck with Bolts. Once they flip they don't seem to come back at all.

A Tern would also be...

I just think its silly to put out 2 discs with the exact same numbers. I mean, what are the differences here? Rim depth and width?

For a 10, 4, 0, 3 flight the Starfire has it covered. I can't...

350' isn't bad. What disc(s) are you using to achieve that distance?

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.

I appreciate the need to keep...

I just can't think of any class player who would benefit from throwing a Freedom. Very new players don't have the skill to put it on a distance line consistently, and skilled players sure as hell...

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.

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...

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...
