DD Lucid Truth is a very glidey and sneaky long midrange.

Depending on the line you need, I can get a Comet to go really far. The Warship (VIP) is slightly overstable and can really glide, with the Tursas being its understable counterpart. Both get great distance, but honestly, the fairway drivers are also an option. I sometimes switch my Warship out with a Buzzz and throw one of my Teebirds instead if my Buzzz can't get there.

The M4 could possibly farther, but it wont do so on the same line. The m4 is going to be turning to the right (rhbh) pretty good if you crush it.

The M3 brand new will behave more like a roc or buzzz when brand new.

so M4 more like a Roc 3 I imagine. It will probably have that extra D from turn and if thrown high enough will fade back instead of finish on its line?

Good info and thanks.

Thats a very appreciated tip. Makes sense and will try it.
Thought I saw a guy throwing a Roc of some run that had a very whippet or banshee like wing the other day, or am I crazy?

There are no rocs with a driver wing. There are classic rocs that are a fast putter, the three molds of regular rocs (san marino, ontario and rancho) that are slower mids and the roc3 which is a slightly faster mid.

I don't know how many mids that go really far have come out recently.

But last I checked, the Westside Warship was the disc speed 6 and under that went the furthest.

I carry a Warship in each plastic, VIP if you're only going to get one.

A roc3 is more like the m2. The m4 should come back if you give it enough height.

Gonna have to go +1 on the recommendation to bump to fairway drivers. FWD will give an extra 50-75ft, fly lower/tighter, and be faster. A leopard or eagle is a good place to start if you like rocs.
