Default Need a hyzer-flip distance disc..

Wanting to try something new, as of now I have been using a beat in Teerex, can toss it around 420ish, was looking at the Nuke or a Katana? Are these too stable to flip? 165g weight Im guessing would be good? Whats the best plastic for this? Thanks for any replies

Lapants has a pro katana that is flippy that we both can get some good distance out of, and i have both a pro and a star that are both pretty flippy. star a little less than the pro.

Either Pro Katana or Elite X or ESP Nuke are Hyze-Flip distance phenominons. I'd actually argue to go heavier than 165, because that will give you a hyze-flip distance out of the box, but might get too understable as you use it. If you can push for a 170ish, I'd do that to up longevity.

Pro Katanas are where it's at, unless you want accuracy. And you don't really need to go lighter than what you normally throw. I personally don't see any stability difference between my 166 and my 172 Pro Katanas. They're both insanely long and squirrely. The other day I was on an open 420' hole with about a constant 10 mph left-to-right tail wind. It's actually the first time I've ever "caught" a tailwind and the disc seemed to act like a kite, gliding high in the wind. Unfortunately, I overshot the basket by about 50' and 100' to the right...it never stopped turning till the very end. Can't win 'em all, but it was still my longest shot on flat ground by about 50' and it wasn't grip-lock, just a continuous turn with the help of the wind.

Pro destroyers in the mid 160s bomb. They flip up beautifully and do a long s-curve. I throw wraiths about 400-420', and can occasionally get a destroyer out close to 450'.

if you are getting the teerex out that far than you shouldnt have a problem getting a nuke to flip out a ways. im really enjoying throwing the lat 64 gl havocs, they flip up and glide like crazy(the optos seem a little less stable). pro katanas and destroyers can be nice but they will get too beat too quick(especially the katanas). eventually they will flip up and just keep going over. id suggest z nuke or goldline havoc. a nicely seasoned star destroyer can be sweet too.

This. Destroyers are the way to go. I throw a max weight echo star D that is very flippy, i can consistently push it out 450+. Pro destroyers and echo tend to beat in the fastest. Katana is a flippy POS, imo.

Judging by your power lever you could also try the DD2. The Pro Destroyer is always a safe choice for distance too.

Depends entirely on the Katana. The Pros I've tried very quickly become like this and Echo Stars aren't too controllable either, but my Farting Lemon and my Champtanas are still very much controllable and damned long.

I'm confused...a Nuke or Katana are too stable to flip but a Teerex isn't? BTW, Katana is not a stable disc. Maybe try a Vulcan or Flow.
