a Dominator comes to mind as the disc tends to do the glide on hard ground if it has not rained in the last few days. It does not skip much on the ground but does the slide thing a Valkyrie can do at end of flight. Another is

My favorite Nukes are Z or Cryztal that fit this bill. Still enough glide for decent D, but very beefy. Problem is, like with any speed 13, there's mucho variation.

Domey PD2s have good glide and are skippy as hell. However, the best I know of is the Prodigy X-lines. The original mold X1 (if you can find them) is the best super OS driver I've ever thrown. I still have 2 and hold on to them like they're gold. The new X2 is a pretty damn close copy. Super overstable, but still has decent glide, skips like a stone on a calm pond, and Prodigy has some of the best feeling plastic blends that I've thrown in 15 years playing. Plus, if you want "a big bold stamp or dye on it", Infinite Discs has some right now with some pretty sweet stamps.

Ti Nukes are pretty damn overstable too. Noticeably more so than a regular Z.

Internet problems as I realized my mistake click then the internet got cut off of Computer. The other I was going to say was the Punisher as it flies the way one wants a Destroyer but broken in. I have seen that used by a player who uses mostly Innova and Dynamic Discs and yes Punisher is like a just broken in Destroyer.

Picked up a Fuzion Defender the other day (no Bio in stock). What tipped the scales for me was the promise of Euro-glide.tm


Pretty much fits the bill. TBH, anything fast, comfy for FH, glidey and decently stable would work fine for this shot as the whole idea of the shot is for a fast disc to fight out of a low anny.


A tight "S" proves pretty useful when you end up where you ought not be in the woods. Shoutout to the Evergreen State College course - really coming along nicely!

If its 300 ft. you want, with glide and skip, I would say a c-line PD (or any other plastic). The new ones are almost firebird OS, but have the PD glide with the fun PD skip. They are more forgiving than a speed 12, but should still get you some good distance.

Domey lighter nuke OS’ in Z or ESP are great for low forehand or backhand flex shots that still need to catch edge and skip.

Not quite the 11-12 speed you initially stated. I use a DD Criminal for this. They start out very OS but fairly quickly break some turn in (well just less HSS) to the point you can throw mid-High power flex shots that produce an excellent flare skip at the end. I use Lucid but I've heard bio is straighter.
