167 FR Pinnacle Outlaw, 380-390ish average. Yet to try a Shryke, but all this talk has me interested.

The two I have had turn less than my regular Star ones which is one of the reasons I can throw them farther. Not a lot farther, but some anyway.

I have an Octane that goes over 400' pretty steadily. Not my longest disc by any means, but it'll hang. Needs some good speed to engage the high speed turn. Not a disc for weak arms.

His main driver was a G* Dominator though so maybe he was actually crazy.


I can push a Dominator to maybe just over 400'. Bit of a sluggish disc. It'd never come close to making my list of longest discs.

Yeah the way MVP described it as a longer wave is WAYYYYYY OFF. Its more like a Destroyer with a hint of turn and more glide. You need a strong arm to get a full flight or use a lighter Octane, but I just grab a MAyhem if I want a lil more turn. Octane does very well for power drives that I want to make sure finishes with stability to my left. only downside is the glide sometimes lifts up in the wind so it can actually kill distance sometimes, but if less wind they just keep gliding - ive over thrown a 800 ft hole on my 2nd shot with the mayhem (on accident of course) because it always goes further than expected

Ballpark my longest disc is a pro wraith. My friend has 2 baskets 400’ apart and doing field work last week I was consistently getting about 50’ from either basket. Parked it a couple times but not every throw yet. Nice to know I’m getting there though, now if only I could transfer those field throws to course throws!!

I agree with your Octane assessment, it reminded me of a late run AJ Destroyer, a little turn but still kind of beefy. Mayhem straight up bombs with a good amount of turn though.
