Default Your favorite turnover speed 8-10 driver?

I lost my beautifully beat in champ roadrunner (nearly 10 years old, I think) and I need to replace it. I'm open to any and all suggestions from all manufacturers. I'd like to stay within the 8-10 speed range to keep it accurate. Ideas? Thanks!

FWIW, I have pretty decent power, hitting 450' regularly when my timing is on.

Champion Glow ROADRUNNER / Axiom Neutron INSANITY- both 172-175g both awesome, both worth checking out


The insanity to me is just a faster roadrunner/sidewinder - its super thin and works great as an overhand disc and get out of trouble disc, I like it a lot. That's all I have to say....about that.

Another suggestion is the AvengerSS. I have this mold in Titanium and Z plastics. Very good understable disc.

I just got an Infinite Discs Sphinx this week so I'm still figuring it out. But it is understable with a ton of glide distance (9 6 -3 1).
