Default Looking for a new driver

Hey, i'm looking for a new driver to try out, the course i play just about everyday is a mostly straight and heavily wooded area so i don't have much room to throw much of a hook. I throw right handed backhand. Not worried about the price just want something long and very straight. Any advice on a disc to try out?

Star TL for sure. In a great plastic that will take the abuse of the trees you will hit. Also super straight and long enough for you. Enjoy.

DX Teebird, if you're willing to beat it in a little. Sounds like your courses will do that. It will fly in that straight, stable condition for a long time. A few more beatings and it turns into a nice gentle turnover disc, with almost zero fade back, great for the big anny shots and holes that finish right.

If you want a slower disc for more control, try a Gazelle.

Just throw a mid or a putter. How far are the wooded fairways? If they are under 300' you should be able to use a mid and putter all day. Plus if and when you drill a tree, they usually don't fly as far into the woods.

Either of these two suggestions will be great, they are farily straight discs and as you get better and stronger you will be able to get them out to the 400' range. They can alsy be shaped very easily as well.

How far do you normally throw?
or
What is the distance that you can throw straight with some accuracy?
or
What distance are you looking for?

my home course is pretty wooded and when I'm in the woods I normally use a Cyclone, Buzzz, Meteor, and sometimes a leopard. I have a friend who lives and dies teebirds, but it's all on what you like on the feel. Eagles are nice to but Mine seem to fly high, which hurts in certain times.

hands down, buy a teebird. Get it in champ plastic and it'll hold up very well against all the trees. If you want something faster/longer, then you could up it to a starfire-l or if you generally have good snap, the regular starfire would work.
