Default Need a long straight fairway.

I'm looking for a long (300-350) fairway driver for tight wooded shots that goes dead nuts straight for a good while before fading. I'm thinking gazelle or cyclone...can't decide. Open to other options as well. For reference, by teebird goes between 350-400 on average and my orc is about the same (I don't throw anything faster.

If you're throwing your TeeBird 350-400 it should be going straight a long way before fading. And you're already throwing further than most. We should be asking you for advice.

My teebird is a bit more stable than I'm looking for...and it's not distance I need, it's accuracy haha

If you're throwing your Teebird 350-400 you should have no problems throwing a Roc 300. If you insist on a driver a Leopard will also fit the bill at 300ft power.

I use a Champ Eagle-L or Star Teebird for these shots. The TL and Leo are also great discs.

There's a whole buttload of options though.

Well, my buzzzes top out just over 300. Leo's have a bit too much turn for me. I should have mentioned that I can't hyzer-flip...so I'd like something that goes pretty straight off a flat release. I was thinking gazelle or cyclone. A tl could possibly fit the bill
