Default Long distance FH disc?

Looking for a distance driver FH disc that will pair well with my bio felons!

Basically I throw my Bio Felons on average FH 340-350ish, I carry 3 of them. New and overstable, the perfect amount of wear and super beat to throw hyzer flip to flex shot. I love them all but cant find a FH distance driver that I like.

Im asking for suggestions. Ive tried destroyers, d2, d3, trespass, xcaliber, pd2, wraith, thunderbird, cd2, captain,.. just to name a few and I cant seem to jive with any of them

Thanks

What do you dislike about the ones you've tried? That might help provide better answers

Of the ones you tried what did you not like about them?

I like the Giant, Phase, War Horse, and though I don’t love the feel for FH the Force has very good flight.

Destroyer too dumpy at the end the the flight
D2 the closest inbetween a d2 and d3, domey
D3 the closest inbetween a d2 and d3, too understable
Moonshine Trespass too domey
Thunderbird dont have one beat in enough to see 100%
Cd2 beats in to too understable
X-caliber too overstable
Pd2 too overstable

Ive found that when the dd loose speed FH thry just dump at the end. I havent gotten a disc on this list to be consistently farther than my felons. Only one close are the d2 and d3s. But the d2s are too domey and the d3s too understable

Ideally Id like something stability between the d2 and d3 that will not dump at the end of the flight, will fly dead straight, flex when beat in, still come back when flexed can be beat to similar to my felons. And flat like my felons

Thanks, didnt think to add that originally

There's no magic FH disc. Many of the molds you mentioned are great FH discs if you're throwing over 350'. Most molds have flat runs so find a flat Xcal, Destroyer, PD2 etc and start beating it in. Better yet, dig through some used bins and find some already beat.

I love throwing a flat Wraith FH, not real keen on domey ones. I also found a couple pfn Xcals that we're surprisingly workable for my arm speed. The new runs are considerably more domey and I'm told they are more OS.

I’d suggest an Enforcer, Defender, or Force, in that order. Anything with a wider rim than your Felon that’s overstable will have more fade at the end of the flight. Enforcers have the same rim width as a Wraith(I’ve checked), but are still overstable by nature and can get some impressive distance. I don’t think I really get any of the other common options a whole lot further.

Also in my experience, there’s nothing longer on a forehand than the right Nuke or Nuke OS- if you want to go all-out.

My answer as well. The low profile of the X series makes them great forehand discs.

unfortunately prodigy is very hit or miss on their drivers.. Some of the D1s and D2s I have thrown forehand fly like what you want but you have to know what to look for and feel a fair bit of them.. you may like the new D2max as it will be less stable and lower profile than the standard D2 supposedly.

Destroyers and PD2s have the same issues, but again you can find lower profile ones that feel good for forehands. I personally forehand an old c PD2 that feels lower profile.

A lot of drivers have this issue. I would say go to a store and find one that feels good and is lower profile. Then tune it to how you want or break it in..

I would say call DGU and ask him to look through the destroyers for a low profile and flat one. Those don't have as dumpy a fade to them and he will find you one.

I haven't thrown one for a while but how about the Bolt? At the 350 range it's a mellower Destroyer/ Nuke kind of driver. For flip to flex on a forehand I could see that being easy D.. People throwing over 400 find em flippy.

Being an MVP guy too how about an Octane
