I guess that its my noodle mentality that wants to recommend the Flow. Nice glide and for me, stays straight for quite a while. I only throw 345' though.

It's a big rim, but the World is actually good here and and TP Giants are also very good.
Do you mind gyro? If not the Octane is not bad at all.

For me the answer is ::: (besides the easy - destroyer - response, which is not a bad idea)

Pinnacle Outlaw

Neutron Octane


Those 2 discs have been "competing" for the spot, honestly it depends on the course/conditions as to which I may bring, and many times I bring both, to me a 1st run Outlaw is darn overstable but great, newer Outlaws have the almost -1 turn, but not much and nothing to fear ripping into a wind (unless its lightweight and icon plastic)

The Octane is like a Slightly worn Star Destroyer, its still plenty Stable/Overstable. I really like the Neutron Octane. And I really like the Pinnacle Outlaw. Both are about 12/5/-1/2 with a lot of power or 12/5/0/2.5 for avg throwers

There are a lot of discs like this im sure but these 2 have been working really well and I like them so that's my 0.02

Oh yeah, great suggestions all around. I'm open to anything; Gyro, foreign, Innova/DC, new hotness, oldie but goldies, you name it. If it helps I'll give a bit more info on me: Can't say what my max D is for sure but on days I'm feeling spry I've gotten close to 400' if not just, if tee signs are to be trusted. Minimum D is at least 330' probably, with an average ~ 350-360' I'd say. I don't really throw distance lines much so these are generally golf lines. I have little mitts but I can put up with rims as wide as a King but I prefer widths closer to Trespasses, Swords, Photons, etc. I usually have my distance drivers around 168g but I'm fine with going heavier if it keeps the HSS better since I'm looking for line shaping more than max distance with this.

I've got two seasoned VIP Giants, 2-3 Photons, and a VIP Boatman with a really high PLH that I'll try out for this currently. Definitely going to look into TP Giant depending on if the VIPs glide enough for me and the S-DD (I throw PDs and really like the feel of the anhyzer top, hate that the DDx isn't working out for me).

Would the Defy fit into this role? The Photons are nice but I like to add more Axiom to the bag if I can just because the loud colors are easier to find.

Thanks.

Agreed. Every max weight Champion Wraith I've ever had has been plenty OS. Stays that way for a while too. Just picked up a production Champion Glo Wraith from a tournament which I think would be a good pick here.

Defy is very similar to Photon. A proton defy will probably be about 12/5/0 to -.25/2... come to think of it that's about what you want so that would definitely work for you.

Ti Nuke. This thing will NOT turn over on you. Decently long, but way more stable than a regular Nuke.

Might be faster than you're looking for though.

But...
if you want a little less HSS and a little more glide/distance, get a star wraith

if you want something a little faster, get a philo destroyer

if you want something that will just barely show that it wants to turn, and have significant LSS, get a star xcal

But i still think you're looking for a S-DD
