Innova Krait



Looking forward to the responses.
I have owned or do own all of these. I have less power than you, so keep that in mind.

Bolt will be too understable for what you want. It's even flippy for me.
D3 is worth a look.
Crank is odd. Might work, but you will have to deal with a decent amount of turn before it comes back. I would go Z instead of ESP.
Flow. Hate this disc. Thrown two. Only disc I've ever thrown that I thought was just bad.
Krait. The wing is a very different shape than most discs. Like a swollen Valkyrie. I personally think it's short for it's speed. My champ is a total meathook. I have a friend that throws his blizzard one very well though.

I would look at D3, Lucid or Fusion, but not Bio, Trespass. Wraith. Or, find a different Destroyer. My experience with heavy Stars was miserable, yet my Pro is about as long as anything I've ever thrown.

I'd check out a DGA hurricane. They are very underrated discs with great glide on them.

You throw a Stalker, which many describe as a mid/fairway tweener, 370' & a Destroyer is too much??? I couldn't throw anywhere near that far with a Stalker so maybe your experience is normal, just sounds odd to a noodle arm

Not so odd really.

I can get a mildly stable Teebird (close to Stalker) out to around 350' then each incremental increase in speed (same stability) adds about another 10'-12' of distance but I also have to drop weight(s) from max, at speed 7, to 150g at speed 11.

Destroyers give me less average distance and less overall control.

I think this guy would do well with a Wraith in the 160's.

Pro Wraith, and of that is too flippy try it in star. A PPD is around a 10 but also a great one.

If the Destroyer is too much disc try a Bio Fuzion Trespass. Destroyers vary a lot in stability between runs...if you picked up a newer AJ one, those are ridiculously overstable. The Trespass should be perfect for you as it acts like a slightly used Destroyer in flight with your power. One guy on here can chunk one over 500ft

Wraith or Trespass are both amazing discs to really go forth and try. Star wraiths break in incredibly well and season quite nicely over time.
