The Shryke is very throw-able. I'd give it a look. They aren't meathooks at all. Try a Shryke in G*. They absolutely bomb.

IMO the Shryke obsoleted the Daedalus the day it came out.

The Daedalus reminds me of the crank ss. Too touchy. Throw it lightly and you get okay distance, throw it with any power even on hyzer, and it just barrel rolls into the ground for a cut roller.

I'd agree. Downwind I could launch a Daedalus as far as anything. In calm conditions it wants to roll if you put any arm on it. The Shryke is way less prone to rolling.

If I had to throw a Daedalus, I'd want a champion.

Ok, I'll have to try one. By the way, I just had my longest throw of 330 feet with the Daedalus today. It drifted right a little then came back. Slight crosswind.

My Daedalus is really working well. Today, I threw a 350 foot bullet. Then missed the putt. No need to buy a Shryke yet.

Once you start getting past 350' you'll notice the Daedalus start getting flippy.

The Shryke is less prone to flipping.

I do like the Daedalus, but I find it has a small window of effectiveness. If you throw it even a hair too hard it'll flip pretty badly. I've gotten the Daedalus out to 450' on hyzerflips. Touchy disc, but a long one.

I was able to borrow a Shryke although it was a 153g. It was flippy as a dx beast. It went a little further then the dx beast at medium effort. At full power, I had to hyzer flip it to get 330 feet.

I've never even seen a Shryke that light. Try one at about 170g and you'll have way better results. A Shryke will flip, but it isn't as touchy as a Daedalus.

I got 371 feet with the Daedalus today. My max weight Destiny turned into the ground on the throw before this one.

The Destiny is super finicky. It almost sounds like you're ready for some beefier distance drivers.

If I were you I'd look around for a domey star Katana. Those things bomb, but aren't super overstable.
