Default Speed 10 Overstable Drivers

I am a RHBH player that throws 350'-400' max depending on disc. I am by no means a power thrower. I currently bag a Volt as my go-to driver and love it for most shots. I also have an Insanity which is a nice faster understable compliment.

I was using the Fission Photon but I'm not pushing it much further than a Volt (I have my best throws with the Volt) and it's not working as a good wind fighter. So I am in need of some recommendations for a Speed 10 that can fight the wind and still give me some nice distance. I am not married to a specific company so anything is fine.

I was looking at getting an Orc. It seems to be what I want but not sure. I have tried the Predator in the past but I didn't click with it.

Eclipse Volts are more OS than Proton.

I kept an Eclipse Volt in my bag a long time just for forehands.

I’ve been really enjoying my Discraft Machete as a control/utility driver. Shallow, flat, beefy wind fighter. After a few rounds of spike hyzers it wound up being fairly workable. My arm might be a tick faster but sounds similar. Bonus, it’s a great overhand disc as well.

I use multiple Volts to cover stability. I just need something faster.

I second this. Various plastics provide different stability ...

Orc, Starfire, Avenger, PD...

Orc can't be wrong; after all, it's in USDGC Champion Nate Sexton's bag.

Ive used every Pre 2016 Speed 12 and under MVP/Axiom disc. Wasn't into those discs. Volt just isn't that great of a wind fighter. Its not bad but would like something better.
