Default Large diameter drivers

Why haven't companies made large diameter drivers, is it only because of the weight issue? with Blizzard/Air wouldn't this be possible?
Can you imagine the sort of glide a 30cm speed 9 disc would have?

Can you imagine trying to shove a 30cm diameter disc into your bag?

Someone has obviously never heard of Super Class discs. Granted they aren't 30 cm.

My buddy and I were having a similar discussion. He loves his Condors. He would love to try a disc with a similar diameter but a more modern wing. He asked someone at Innova about it and they said that's why they have the Scorpion. Not really at all what he meant, but that's about as far as he got with them.

I think OP means a disc with a driver rim with a large diameter. Like a Boss's 13 speed rim on a disc with a 30 cm diameter. Didn't Millennium try doing a larger diameter driver with the Tachyon? I looked it up and it had a diameter of 21.7 which gave it a max weight of 180 grams.

I watched a group of folks throwing big-ass ultimate discs on the course yesterday. I was impressed by the incredible gilde - those discs would practically hover before settling to ground, but the distance was very short. A huge,wide disc built like a driver would probably be great fun to throw, especially for the big arm crowd.

That would be crazy. Imagine the glide if Lat made a 30cm Halo.
