Stag is very long for its speed, and the recycled plastic is good as well.

Fission Volt is good I agree.

I think the Crave is especially sneaky since it always goes just a bit more than it’s line would appear to allow. The plasma ones are very true to this.

Trespass I agree with, I can power it down like a fairway and get significantly more distance at lower height.

Sidewinders too, I don't bag them because they fly with a lot of fairway characteristics but I can't control the landing zone as well, they keep going. Lost my last one by overshooting so deep I went in water.

Leo's go every bit as far for me as any speed 7 disc, FD included, even though they are narrower and I guess truly a 6. The "slower speed" shouldn't discourage anyone.

Oh, DX Teebirds bomb.

I'm getting my most consistently long BH distance shots from my Star Teebirds. Thrown with anyhyzer they go as far as my Wraiths but I get more control. It's really as fast as I should be throwing most of the time for BH distance.

Hatchet. I don't know why I don't throw them more. They glide forever, and when hyzerflipped they can run a pretty dead straight line too.

I like your style man. I came to say FD. Teebirds are my schit too. But the FD is the longest distance disc I even to throw anymore. I can't throw 9+ speed drivers farther or more accurately so I don't even bag any.

Comet hands down for me. Honestly why I didn't like it at first. Went too far, unpredictably.

If we're just talking wow that went farther than I thought I could throw it: Heat, Escape, Trespass, Pro Destroyer, Thrasher. Octane

Sounds like the FD might be worth a look. I actually have one, but haven't thrown it yet.

One other disc I'll add that's sneaky long is the TD2. Its basically a speed 10 version of a Tern or DDX. Somewhat wildly flippy, but exceptionally long. It'll hang with the big dog drivers. Accuracy is out the window though.
