A Vision is a slower understable, which would be better than the Avenger SS (At least i think it is slower)

It might be about the same speed. Either way, not much different.

Look at DGC and look for around speed 6 or 7. Thats where you will find control discs. Right now you are talking speed 9 and up and since you like your Wraith which is around that area, of course you wont see the advantage. Ease up on the machismo a bit.

What didnt you like about a Teebird? although it isnt really a shaping disc, it just goes straight, it could be a good starting point to give you a good guess on where to go because it is in that speed zone.

He threw it one time about a year ago, and allredy made up his mind.

Thats fine, because I think he could use more of a line shaper and a Teebird just likes to be thrown flat and straight. It might be the best disc ever at that but its all it really does well.

I would think something more like an Eagle or JLS, or if you want to get understable and learn to hyzer flip and anny a disc, a Z Xpress. Something that will shape a controlled line instead of just throw it hard and let it fade.

I know a guy who can throw 400' with a boss. He is the big strong guy who muscles the disc out there on a giant S line. He isn't very good but he can throw that distance driver quite a ways.

This guy also constantly gets beat by my friend who can only throw 300' but can throw DX eagles and valkyries on a ton of different lines.

I don't know if I can agree with your good snap assessment without seeing you throw.
