Default Sneaky long

What drivers would you guys say are "sneaky long"? By that I mean they gain noticeably more distance than you think they should and end up beyond your intended target.

First one that comes to mind for me is the Trespass. I've been messing with a fuzion burst Trespass lately and it absolutely crushes. This disc goes way, way longer than I'm used to throwing such discs. This Trespass is on the flippy side and bombs when hyzerflipped. It reminds me of a Shryke or Tern. Great glide. I tossed a couple lucid Trespasses earlier this year that were similar. Hugely long. Much longer than I'd anticipated out of that mold.

On a side note, I dig this fuzion burst plastic. The stuff is nice and glides well. I also tried the Explorer in that pastic.

What other discs do you think are sneaky long?

I threw the Term and I don't wanna say "sneaky long" because it is made to bomb. The FD however is just that for me. Throw them well past my TBs with minimal effort. Ignoring the fact that you said driver entirely I will say also that the Prophecy was a much longer disc than I thought it would be.

The Vamp is the fairway driver that I overshoot the target the most. Dang thing has almost as much glide as a Comet. Unfortunately, it is nose sensitive as hades.

The 138g Fission Photon was dangerous long...it went OB a few times when I didn't mean for it to. I traded it off. I have a low 150s weight one now. It doesn't have nearly the glide, but it's still long. A 145 would probably be golden.

MVP Relay. If you get the right angle and snap, it just bombs. During the Circuit event where it debuted, I saw a guy park no15 at Mt Airy. A 500+ ft downhill turnover shot. Pretty good for a speed6 fairway...

Totally agree with this one. My longest throw to date was with a relay. 425 slightly downhill hyzer flip that went 100 long of the pin.

As I was reading this, I was going to say the Trespass, also.

Another disc that I found to be sneaky long is the VCobra. Not a popular disc, but a good one.

Comet and FD both go surprisingly far for the effort input. And some of my longest throws ever have been with a Star Sidewinder.
