Who doesnt need more reliable distance in their life?

They bomb too, Ive hit 400 with it a few times and regularly park it 380+ no problem.

I keep Teebirds as well because they are also awesome and I dont descrimiate but Stags are freaking great.
Stags were next on my list to try, but then DD released Biofuzion Getaways and they turned out to be exactly what I was looking for.

Yeah, I flat out don't like flippy fairway drivers. I like to throw them hard and straight. I want discs that will go an accurate 375' with a fairly hard toss. I still need to try the Getaway. The Longbowman I really liked. Rock steady 375' drives with marginal glide. The disc just plows forward. Unaffected by wind. Not floaty at all. The Convict was nice for finesse shots inside of 375'. Soon as you really bear down on it the disc starts bleeding right. It has a decent fade, but I don't think and S curve is really a good idea for a fairway drive when accuracy is necessary.

I keep a Surge around for shots that I want to work right. The Surge is 167 and flippy enough that it will stay right if I put a really hard rip on it.

IME: Truth and Buzzz and similar, although Truth seems faster and a tick less stable. IDK a third to add to this group though, don't have the experience with others. Maybe MD3?
Buzzz (Ti), Roc3, and Compass are all very similar. Feel in the hand and which World Champ you support are the main differences...

Good comparison. I feel like the D2 might be a tick faster than the others, but they fly very similarly.

Comet, Flying Squirrel, DX Cobra.
Comments:
There are a LOT of different Comets (runs, plastics, etc), but let's kinda use an average, but obviously YMMV.
Flying Squirrel is a tad less stable than a comparable Comet, but will go a bit further, in my experience.
DX Cobra of the more recent blunter nose mold. Obviously the Champion Cobras are beefier, especially the more recent runs. Obviously the DX Cobra will beat into a nice throwler, but let's talk out-of-the-box DX.

C-FD, Opto-X River, and Star TL are just a matter of which feels better in your hand, because they all pretty much fly the same.
