Through your DG career, you'll go through many drivers. You just have to experience as many as it takes to find what works. Leopards are a good start.

I'd say drop the Wraith at that distance. Dthunderchicken's suggestion of a Leopard is a good one, I'd suggest Pro. Maybe a lighter Teebird, River, XL, TL, etc. I'd say stick in the 7 speed range & not too stable

Drop anything over a speed 9. You should get to were you can throw a mid 275, before you start throwing drivers.

The best distance driver is the one that flies the farthest on a consistent basis for you.
