Default Best Understable Distance Driver

Vote! I need to buy an understable driver.... i searched the forum and there wasnt a very clear discussion for this concept.

Until now, i've been relying heavily on a forehand drive....I have a sidewinder, but its not fast (long) enough, i have a katana, but it's too much, and it doesnt flip enough..... when i can get my SL to flip it's amazing, but its not really a disc for this concept....

In recent weeks, i've been trying to work on throwing and flipping understable discs (as opposed to Forehand throws).

Suggestions.
(No offense to non-innova people, in regards to the poll, i pulled the list as best i could from Joes Flight Chart....)

i was playing with a buddy who had a "Very well beat in" monarch that was amazing...

I'm probably with craftsman on an avenger ss, or a light weight DX wraith. I usually flip a 150g DX or 163 star wraith (harder to find) for anything long right, it never comes back unless there is a stiff tail wind.
