Star or G* Shryke. Mellow flight with some high speed turn. You won't find anything longer with a similar flight.

I am throwing a z line vulture. Took a season of casual play, but it can be mildly hyzer flipped, and sent on a frozen rope for around 360. I can max that disc out at 410 on a great day.

Big Z crank. So controllable for a high speed driver.

My seasoned Wraith flys like a longer FD. That being said, i don't see you picking up 50' by going distance driver. I throw my FD out to about 365' and am very happy when i hit 400' with my wraith. The FD is sneaky long and if you aren't throwing 450'+ it'll probably be about 25' short of your distance drivers.

Default FD

Thanks all for the help..Im going to work on form to get more out of my FD. I am also going to try out the CD2, CD3, and Sword and see where that gets me. Maybe some day we will have a Distance FD...

CD2, Saint Pro, Krait and Beast are the most similar I've found. A Pro Beast will get a bit more turn but if you're good with release angles, flies the most similar to an FD as anything I've found.

I use a TD, but they are definitely more understable and will require more hyzer on release.

Its hard to get a MAX D disc with the flight of a fairway. BUT, I may have a couple good answers for you. for a little faster a disc I find to be VERY much like the flight of the FD is the Millennium Orion LS in Quantum plastic. Its a speed 9 but flies a lot like the FD. as for a FASTER disc like that, it gets tricky as faster speed will have more lateral movement and require the right power/finesse to get that smooth slight turn -straight - slight fade - of everything I've used the closest to that has been, a beat Star Destroyer (but its hard to find one in that perfectly beat stability) so my next option would be an Axiom Mayhem - it flies like a beat destroyer when new - then the MVP Octane, its a lightly more OS mayhem numbers are about 13/5/-1.5/2.5 and that's probably the closest you can get in flight - Also a Star/S line DDX max weight has a NICE flight, when they work in they can flip more.

good luck

Try an Archon. Dead Straight with solid stability, flies for days.
