I think that for me if they just had the Octane/Mayhem and something like a Phase/Energy and one flippy slot for the folks that like that they would do just fine. As much as High Speed drivers sell we are into overkill territory here.

I don't know about you guys, but I only throw my distance drivers 2-4 times per most rounds anyway.

That's because you can throw over 400 feet.

I throw max D on almost every hole. And also on a few approaches. But it's totally course dependent.

To rain on everyone's parade:

DGCR isn't most disc golfers. They're a business and want the Chad's and neckbeards of the world to buy their **** instead of Bosses, Nukes, and Grooves.

Just curious, what do you throw for Max D? You’ve said, but I forgot. I don’t throw MVP all the time, but the Motion and Fireball pretty much go 90% as far as the Phase for me, and the Volt does the same ish as the Octane/Mayhem backhand.

I don't have the arm for any of the big boy drivers. My go-to dependable (keep it in the fairway) max is a 150's Wave right now. When it's go for broke D, I'll flip the Orbital, but it's tough to hit the right angle every time.

150's Insanity is also a great distance driver for my arm. Fission Photon, too.
