I prefer to find a good beat in version of whatever I throw as my main driver, so for me it's the Tresspass. I've got 2 beat in bio fuzion tresspasses, one's my big turn over driver/tail wind and the other is my roller disc for wide open rollers. I like having a consistent feel across my drivers.

If the OP said minimum of a 10 speed.....easy for me, DX Beast.

After a few tree hits, they can flip so easy.

For me the are three that I could use more or less interchangeably and they are the King, Sheriff and Shryke. They can all be thrown on long hyzerflip lines and s curve shots, I think the King does the long turn to tiny fade the best, but the Shryke can do it as well especially in Champ.

Finally got some SP Breakers. The shape of the disc literally feels right between a zone and a ringer GT. Hopefully the flight will be right in that sweet spot also. I'll be able to get a bunch of throws in with it this weekend.

I'd agree. The 3 you mentioned are probably my favorite long, understable drivers. I'd probably add the Ballista in there too.

Would agree, was harder for me to be consistent with, but also a very good disc.

I come from latitude Discs and if you threw the River and the FD, you know they don't rock the same scale.

Haha yes, my arm is somewhere around speed 10 or 11 but damn. A flat release smash 3m above the ground with the decodye Ballista is my longest shots on the range.

The Opto-X River flies a lot like a Night Strike or C-FD. Any other plastic than that is much less stable than all but the most trashed D-FD.

Star Tern is the only understable distance driver that has been any use for my noodle arm.

Yeah a beat-in Fuzion Trespass is an easy to s-curve bomber.

I bag an Opto Ballista for max D and and a VIP King for roller flippy shots. The Ballista is very rewarding when you get a good rip and fairly predictable if you don't. The King is more for rollers and long turnovers but super useful on long, uphill shots.

My Gyro bag is usually either a N Catalyst or Plaz Wave. They both bomb but have to be ripped clean. The N Teleport is also a bomber but I barely have any business throwing it due to speed. A N Insanity gets most of US line shaping shots though.

I like the Destiny a lot, it's very similar to the King. Also like Swords and other Trilogy drivers except the Freedom. That disc is stupidly finicky and that's coming from a flippy King thrower. I need to try Shryke. Sheriff, and Terns sometime.
