Yeah, That's what I'm trying to figure out... I love that a heavier C-PD can cover hard winds and Hyzer drives. S-PD's can be controlled distance drives, and P-PD's can be distance, eventually hyzerflippers and Turnover shots. BUT...all of that only works to a certain point. No PD will give me a nice S shot, or a straighter, tighter distance line (the P-PD will for a little bit before it starts flipping more), or MAX D.

I'm ideally looking at something FASTER than a PD or right on par with it.

That's all the further I can throw em too. I get to around 350 on a good drive with a 170g S-PD.
