Default Looking for a great FH driver

Hey everyone, just looking for suggestions for a great FH driver. I already have an FD2 Royal Rage and it's just about as perfect of a disc as you could ask for a FH throw as far as feel goes. So I'm looking to add a speed 10-12 disc, that feels and fits the hand almost the same, but just has more speed to throw farther. I usually only like Discmania, MVP, Axiom, and Lat 64 discs, but always willing to look at other brands.

Want something with the FD2 feel, flat top, thin overall, thin/flat wing shape, and no sharp edges underneath the disc. Would like it to have some tiny amount of HS turn, but not much. Also, don't want a ton of hard fade at the end. Something that if thrown well, goes mostly straight or just a tad of turn, then rides that line straight most of the way, with a reliable/always going to happen fade, but soft. Nothing with a hard fade right. And just for reference, I throw my control drivers speed 9 around 380 or so. I'm still learning the game and don't have a super repeatable throw yet, but it's getting better each day now. This disc will also act as my only disc above speed 9 for now, and be my OS/windy BH driver as well. Thanks

Check out the Wraith. It's not very overstable, has good glide and gets really good distance. It has some glide in its fade as well, it doesnt just dump hard. I recommend the Star plastic, it's the same plastic as Discmania's S-line.

Some great ones exist in this range, the Motion is nice and flat and will go very far for a not super fast disc. Fireball is good too, but may not go as far as a motion might.

Scythe, Wraith and Phase could also be worth a look depending on how you throw.

Check out the Doombird3 (FD3) run from Discmania right now. It's only a 9 speed, but I'm getting about 40 more feet with it over my Royal Rage's on a forehand line.

Thanks for the tip. I already have a Prism Insanity though. Basically a very similar disc to the Wraith. But that Wraith is too domey for what I'm looking for.

The Wraith/Insanity are killer S line discs right now for me! It's probably my farthest disc. That and my Krait go about the same distance and get a nice controlled line when I throw them well. Thanks

In what world are an understable 9 speed and an overstable 11 speed at all similar??

If an Insanity is flying like a Wraith for you, you probably would benefit more from form work than a faster disc, but what do I know?
