Default Disc suggestion?

So I like the Star Katana for my hyzer RHBH drives. I recently got a Champion Katana and it is much more stable than the Star. Now granted, the Star is worn in a few months but this Champion Katana is a completely different disc. Can anyone suggest a new disc in Champion plastic that flies like a beat in Star Katana?

Accurately, about 270-300ft. 171g With wind or the right elevation more like 350-375ft.

To be honest, I've only thrown a first run champ katana and it's not to stable, but something a little less stable? I've had alot of luck with my champ beast, and if your not opposed to other brands I'd highly recommend the DGA Hurricane.

honestly you probably shouldnt be throwing a katana if youre only throwing it that far, in any plastic. You shouldnt even reach for a katana if you arent trying to go 350+ regardless of elevation. My guess is you dont have the arm for it yet, or youre not using it in the right situation. Either way if you like the flight of the katana, i suggest a Valkyrie, i bet you can throw it just as far, more easily and more reliably

Yes, Champion Beast. (3-4g's lighter than your star katana).

This 100% and my recommendation is in Pink. Anyone throwing under 300 Ft. should be throwing fairway drivers and low speed discs until they surpass that. High speed discs don't get you distance. YOU do.

DGA Hurricane is very comparable (better) to the Katana if anyone is interested.
