I've thrown all of those discs. They all have very wide rims. I don't think any of them are going to be more comfortable than the others. Either you like wide rimmed drivers or you don't. If I had to pick a couple of those to get max distance bombs out of it'd be the Ballista and the D3.

Shryke is still my main distance bomber though.

Last but not least is Infinite's new Pharaoh, which is said to be based on the Shryke, but might give that tick more stability. The Pharaoh is getting good reviews, as well.
400' out of a Destroyer is damn good distance. Something like a Ballista would be a touch flippier, but probably go another 40' or so. A Boss would be very similar, maybe a hair more stable than the Ballista.

Try one for sure. The Ballista definitely has high speed turn. However, it generally won't flip all the way over. Great open hole bomber disc. Great speed and glide.

Another un-mentioned disc is the Lace. They can be a little too touchy at times, but will seriously fly as far as any other driver on the market. Last time in the practice field my Lace and Shryke were basically tied for longest distance.

As for Ballista vs. Sheriff, I like the Ballista better. Its faster, flexes out better, and simply flies further for me. For whatever reason I can't get my lucid Sheriff to flex out on huge S curves like I can the Ballista. The Sheriff fades out prematurely.

Sheriff for me. Consistently out past 350 on golf lines, but have seen over 400 on and off the course. Before that it was bolt that was consistently longer by 25-50 ft on golf lines but with a lot less predictability.

I honestly don't know because I am constantly changing and trying new things. Comes down to StarLite Tern, Destiny, Shryke and Sheriff. Some of my personal bests on my home course have come with a 172 Echo Star Tern. I really should by about 10 of them before they are all gone.

You better hurry if you want to grab Echostar Terns. They are already going fast, and I'm not sure where you'd amass ten of them without paying more (i.e. paying too much). I'm down to my last two, and they'll just have to do me...

Axiom MAYHEM - if you like a Katana or Shryke or looking for a similar flight but like a lil more bite back on the fade, Neutron MAyhem fits the bill. I was looking for a More stable TERN kinda flight and this is by far the furthest disc I've thrown

MVP Catalyst for me, I can get it out there to ~400' on that 1 in 10 shot when I really get ahold of it. I'd say 350'-375' fairly consistently though. I did just pick up a Mayhem and am starting to play around with it, seems like it'll be right up there too...
