I agree that its much easier to hit max distance just hurling it, 350' accurately is pretty damn good.

I'll just add that at 350' a Punisher should work fine for slight headwinds. I mean, I wouldn't use it in a hurricane, but it will hold up.

I was throwing my Punisher over 400' and it hardly had any turn on it. Pretty solid performer. The Surge is much flippier.

Third the Pro Wraith. A 157 Pro Wraith is my noodle-armed OS/wind driver. And I am looking forward to perhaps replacing my Neutron Wave with a beat-in Pro Wraith.

My other "OS" driver is a 158 Star TL. If I am careful with nose angles and throw cleanly the TL or Wraith will stand up to any headwind I have ever encountered. Medium Harp, too, for putters. I don't carry anything more OS than those discs.

Teebirds do great in headwinds, too. Once I was playing singles and needed to throw over a pond in a 30-40 mph headwind. My 155 DX Teebird had no problems, but all the others on the card (generally better players than me) turned over their max weight drivers into the muck.

One last thing: If you are not getting a clean release on your disc, you will struggle in a headwind. Any wobble or OAT will get munched by a strong headwind, as will throwing nose-up.

Good luck!
