Default Speed 9-10 Drivers

I'm looking for a new distance driver. I like my Lace, but it's a little bit too much disc for me. The Speed 9-10 discs I have thrown have been the most comfortable in my hand for a driver and have given me designed flight paths.

I have thrown Valkyries, PDs, Roadrunners (must have got two freaks, because they were WAY more stable than I expected), and a few others.

I am either looking for an OS/US pairing (probably PD and something that has some turn that I can work for distance) or a more Neutral driver in this range than I can work to do multiple things.

I'm mainly looking for something I can throw far (but fairly controllably), but wouldn't mind recommendations on a wind fighting disc.

Beasts. Great availability, variety of plastics and stabilities with each.

Beast and Sidewinder are decent choices. I'm thinking of grabbing a Surge from Discraft.

^This
PD & Beast together would be great.
Orc & Sidewinder or Roadrunner would be decent also.

CPD, SPD and PPD. The PPD is straight out of the box and breaks in to a really nice turnover disc. The SPD won't flip but breaks into a really long straight flyer with reliable fade. The CPD starts out nice and overstable and can handle a good strong headwind even after significant wear.
