Default What is the most High Speed Stable Discraft Driver

I am trying to make the switch over to discraft for my drivers to get Innova out. I went out over the weekend and grabbed a couple Stalkers and a Predator. The Predator wasn't very resistant to turn when released with a lot of power.

I like the Stalker a lot, I can make it do a lot of things so I am thinking about carrying a Stalker and a HSS Driver as well. tips needed as I don't know much about discraft stuff. I don't really like wide rimmed stuff so more less looking for something that speed 11 size max.

Z Xtreme>Z Predator>Z Force

Some ESP and FLX Preds are not very overstable right out of the box, but a flat/high PLH Z Pred will not turn at all, and many Z Forces can take 500'+ of power without turning.

The Z Xtreme is more of a trick shot disc. It's OOP and rated 3+ on the stability scale. They actually include the "+" sign on the disc because it's so damn overstable.

How is the rim size on a Force? That was what a local discraft guru recommended to me.

It's 2.3cm I believe. Basically a slightly beefier Destroyer. I know it exceeds the rim size you like but it is the distance driver of choice for all the high power Discraft guys.

The Pulse is another disc you might consider. I used to have one that was nice and stable. Haven't thrown one in a long time but I think it's in the 2.0cm rim range and it's supposed to be a stable power driver for sidearmers (which of course works for a BH player too).

Mark Ellis often speaks of his love for flat Crushes too. Very stable disc that forehand players seem to love, which I assume means its fairly resistant to OAT.

I have never tossed a flick backhand, only for forehand shots and thats been a couple years at least. I'm not sure I would like it due to the rim depth.

A crush has a good rim size for me too (small hands).
