Default What's your Go-To water hole disc for driving? Why?

Maybe you like it because it floats, or because it goes far, or because it's super predictable, or??

I'm searching for something that's dependable and will get the job done. An all-condition kind of disc.
Thinking of a star destroyer that I don't care about losing.
Just worried it might have too much fade/skip when landing.

What do you bring and why?

Gotta be a Gstar Destroyer. When they are new they fly just like a nicely broken in Star Destroyer, but are far more easier to replace.

Most times I'm just throwing whatever disc the shot calls for and not worrying about it.
If I'm truly worried I might lose one I throw my star wraith or old DX gazelle because I won't be upset about losing them.

There is no one go to water disc, if you aren't confident in throwing the shot, whatever disc you pick will not be a good shot. Be confident, throw the shot, make the water gap, be happy :-)

DX Destroyer and a DX Teebird.

They fly great and I'd rather lose $8 than $16.

Whatever I would throw if the shot wasn't over water. I like knowing what the disc is going to do and being confident in my shot. I have backups for everything in my bag, if I lose it then I'll replace it.

If you throw a disc that's only for water shots, and you don't care about losing...

Then in your mind, you've already thrown it in the water.


But maybe don't throw your CE whatever or *D destroyers
