CD3 is the only distance driver that comes to my mind in the line up. The CD2 will gain you maybe 20-30' compared to an FD. Find a lower weight CD3 and you might be interested in its characteristics. Honestly though my FDs keep up with my distance drivers if given the proper flight path. Can comfortably throw them 400ish feet without massive height or hyzer.

I'll add 2-3 cents worth

I throw FDs, FD2s, CD2s, and CD3s

my perspective would be that the flight you are looking for is a G Line CD2 or a flatter lighter (168-170) S line CD2

my perspective is colored by the fact that I am at altitude
closer to sea level the S Line CD2 might be a better choice than the G Line

Domey or Roaming Thunder / Swirly CD2s will be quite a bit more HSS and LSS than the flight the OP seems to be seeking

as others have said, once the wing gets bigger you will (generally) start to get more fade

for me the longer version of my hyzer flip straight FD shot is the hyzer flip G Line CD2. Very similar with extra distance on the CD2

I was just thinking about this recently. I can tell you what it is. I don't even have to give you a list. Ignore the numbers. It's the Sidewinder. Yes, I know it's speed 9. Throw one next to your longest disc and report back on the gap.

You're FD is a speed 7 so I would try something in the speed 9 category instead of leaping to 11's or 12's.

A Star Valkyrie, S-Line CD2 (flat), ESP Undertaker or any speed 9 from another company that fits in that style.

Recognize the difference from a speed 5 mid & your speed 7 FD & how drastic it is. I wouldn't go more than two speed clicks up for what you're looking for.

The Krait is a sneaky good disc. Very straight flight with a dump fade. But it's either OOP or on the way to be.

I was thinking the exact same thing. I throw a Discraft Heat here, which I think is basically the same but I haven't thrown many SWs recently for comparison.

Noticed OP already throwing a RR.
