Defender looks legit, glidey, and comfy for FH. Would not mind checking out bio or lucid.
Bio is the option. May start quite beefy but it'll lose some HSS soon and hold the flex better. Lucid seems much more OS.

The Felon is very workable for holding flex lines and shaping FH woods shots. They won't skip out of low flex lines like the Defender though. The Defender will also hold more speed to the ground for skipping.

Spirits are amazing, if they felt better in hand I would bag them. The C line Slabs from Infinite are very similar and skip so well. If you don’t have a 400 Ft forehand you may not like it though.

Take a look at the Giant, Enforcer, XCal and Phase. They all can fit that bill depending on your arm speed and throwing motion. The Yikun Da’E in Dragon line can also do this well. It flies a lot like a giant.

Depending on armspeed...a Wraith would probably be the most logical step up.

Basically yeah, but like a Wraith squared.

Discmania DD. Wraith wing, but more OS, right?

I'll agree with the Defender recommendations. I had one that I was really starting to click with before it went into a sea of blackberry brambles, never to resurface. A tick of turn with a strong fade, but really just at the end of it's flight. Pretty unique as it held its glide for a while before it started fading, but once it started to go to ground it went hard.

I'm pretty sure there are S-line PD2's out there that will also get the job done. Just not familiar with the S-line runs to know which. I even think I read that the recent runs of Glow PD2's were fairly workable.

Actually, this. Totally forgot about the DD. Sexton sigs are especially more OS.

I highly recommend the Archon. it's only an 11 speed, but it glides for DAYS and gives a beautiful S curve flight with a good arm. It's easy distance, and gives a reliable skip as well. Perhaps not as OS as you're looking for, but if it's glide and distance you want, look no further.
