First off it should have been 2018 tour series in my first post, but its got a pretty moderate dome. Its not flat but the dome isnt pop top. I can get a pretty comfortable forehand grip on it and I dont care for domey forehand discs. I have one more but its identical color (both orange) and weight so my sample size is small.

When I started out playing I bought a 162g * Roadrunner. I loved it, it was easily my longest disc. I didn't have a big arm, this was a perfect distance driver for my arm. The glide was insane. But then I got into FDs and I beat up a few that basically took over the role of the Roadrunner. A beat sFD is v v similar to a Roadrunner, even the feel of the rim. Which is a good thing because the FD is pretty much the best disc out there for beginners and intermediate players. The Roadrunner is very underrated IMO. If you're a low armspeed player forget about distance drivers. The Roadrunner will outdrive all of them. Bombs :bomb:

The G* RR should be everybody's first "distance" driver...easy distance, glides great, is actually a -3 or -4 turn unlike Champs and Stars. That's why GStar is so great, the discs are pretty close to their numbers out of the box and don't need to have the "new" knocked off.

Finally got a Barsby Sig Star RR...and mine is 170g, pop top and bright green. Plastic feels great and it's stable for a RR but man will that thing glide forever.

Yeah the Barsby sigs are pretty stable for a roadrunner, but they sure do like to stay up in the air. I have one that’s beat dang near in to a great roller disc though. Give it some rounds and bash a few trees and it will hit that flippy great spot.

I got myself one to be my hyzerflip to turnover that holds forever in a slight downhill. Instead if see the potential for my soon to be go-to hyzerflip wooded distance driver, i tried to get it out to 400' on a sky s-line but it just did a minimal curve with the most air time of all the 20 discs is threw...

I bet beat in this is that disc that will allow my confidence to grow enough to throw faster and straighter in the woods.

My star 167g RR seems a lot more stable than 9, 5, -4, 1.....its the normal weight I use on all my discs.

I love how it flies, but the numbers are odd to me. Sort of flies like 9, 5, -2, 2 in star plastic.

I'm a bit out of the RR loop... 9 5 -2 2 wasn't that the original ratings on a RR? Like 10yrs ago?

I always remember them being 9 / 5 / -4 / 1. I don't remember flight number changes.
