Default Overstable Fairway Drivers

During my last couple rounds, I came to the realization that I am in need of an overstable fairway driver in my bag. I carry both an Air Opto Saint and a Neutron Volt and find them to be pretty much the same (straight w/ slight low speed fade), however I'm in need of something with much stronger fade and little to no high speed turn. F1's or Stags look intriguing based on inFlight stats. Can anyone recommend either of these or other molds they carry that would fit the bill?

Thanks!

Z xtreme, always hear guys saying they need an overstable fairway then I recommend the xtreme and they say its way too overstable. So predicting you dont want to handle or can not handle it I would say the Predator, Firebird, spirit. You can always power down on a driver as well. I generally can tell the age of people posting on how they say disc wise what to throw. Most of the "old cats" like to power down on drivers, mids vs putters and throw hyzer flips; younger crowd is more like if its under 300 ft that is putter territory even though i can only throw my putter 275 max but I will make that 25 footer 100% of the time. I fell into it a while myself but realized the game is to SCORE WELL not how far I can throw my putter

Stags are great, but they're more Eagle X-y than anything else: lots of fade, but a bit of turn, and they're not wind killers. Ton of glide though, and they do handle moderate winds. If you want to try one out, go with a max weight VIP. The Tourneys have a later fade and more turn.

A step up from that would be a Banshee/Firebird/XXX type of disc. I use Banshees for my mega-overstable slot.

Well how overstable? Do you want something that is like a XXX in overstability to be used more for utility, or something less overstable? The F1 is supposed to be pretty beefy and the Stag isnt even close. The stag will most definitely not be what youre looking for.

Id say check out a 2nd run Shock, F2, or a C-Line PD. Im testing out all 3 right now and they are all pretty good overstable fairways. The PD is a bit longer, but its also a speed 10.

Do yourself a favor and get a Banshee or an EXP1. They are only speed 8/9 respectively and do just fine into the wind. There is no reason to get a Firechicken if you don't have the arm to throw it correctly. I have two Banshees in the bag and they will always be there.

For the speed 9ish range (Same as your volt and sait) I'd recommend a Predator or Firebird.
For something in the true fairway speed (speed 7ish) I'd recommend an F1 or Banshee.

I am a fan of the whippet. It works well for all kinds of shots, but predominantly I use it for getting around corners and under 250ft hyzer bombs. I am also running a Prodigy F1. So far it is proving to fly the same lines. The Prodigy will likely be less $ than whippet in premium plastic.

I like to throw a Trident for short hard fading shots and a PD for longer os shots.
