The Drone has the right flight lines, but I am looking for a little more distance. Basically then I am looking for just a tad less HSS but almost the same LSS. The Vector never got that distance and basically did all the same shots as the Drone. The Pain is considerably less HSS meaning that by the time the LSS kicks in, I am still to the right of my intended target.

Basically I am looking for that magical overstable mid. I can power down on my fairway drivers but I do not like to do this under 280 feet because at that distance they often have a tendency to skip and bounce whereas a mid is more likely going to dig. More basically I am looking for a mid I can power up without having to worry too much about OAT or how much hyzer it is going to need to keep from flipping up or having too much and ditching into the ground.
If I wanted to reach about 280 ft. without worrying about the wind and depending on the what the hole presents me, I'd reach for my Sinus, Trident, or xxx. all 3 have a solid fade. I don't have to worry about hyzering it; just rip it and release it flat and it's good..especially with the sinus and xxx. if i was looking for a slight hss, then I'd grab the trident. I have turned over both the opto and gl pain and the drone. that's why if i don't want to worry about the wind, again, I'll grab the sinus or xxx.

another thing to try is a heavier or lighter gl pain or a drone, depending on how stable you need it to be and the distance you like to get from it. I normally throw 163-170 drives and my gl pain is 176. It's not too beefy and it does what i need to it do. plus being right of basket isn't all too bad, but then again, I don't know the layout of the hole

I hope I was able to help you...if not, I tried. Good luck searching!
