I'd put G* Shrykes among my top 2 or 3 longest molds. They're flippy, but the distance is effortless.

IMO Shrykes and Terns are the 2 best hyzerflip molds on the market for sheer distance.

One disc I wish I could include is the Escape. I have had some really impressive throws from this 9 speed that match or exceed anything I can do with a proper distance driver. The problem with it is inconsistency. The wind will really mess with it. I guess that has to do with its high glide. So I have come to rely on the 11 speed Thrasher which in the varieties of Z plastic is better at dealing with the wind. Ultimately I would like to scale down on the speed of my drivers for the sake of overall consistency. My dream disc is a 20 mm, 9 | 4 | -1 | 1 disc, that goes far and handles moderate wind.

Maybe with the First Ace Race disc, Discraft makes the Escape Again and do so with all the others they use for this years Ace Race.

When I was throwing that far the G* Tern was hands down the most reliable disc for easy distance. I have a 164g and 170g, they fly strangely close in stability but I prefer the 164g.

They are very unreliable in the wind, so I always had a 166g Star Shryke for moderate headwinds or when I needed to know I wouldn't go too far right.

Now that I'm getting closer to 340-350 on a good throw with some height, the Tern is more of a tailwind or anhyzer disc or something I use when I need to know I won't go too left on a distance line. It fills the gap between a Roadrunner and a Shryke. It's also really easy distance when I need to power down.

I’ve gotten to know the DDX a little bit and the beat up S line I have will boom. It’s like a good King, or thrashed Destroyer. Got some turn, but stays in the forest part of the flight a long time before the fade.

The Escape is a Dynamic Discs mold

I was thinking Eclipse, I read Eclipse instead of Escape but spelled Escape.

Thanks.

I agree on the DDX. Not one of my absolute longest discs, but it'll surprise you with how far it goes. The DDX has noticeable high speed turn, but enough late fade that it always comes back at the end of flight.

I can throw Terns further, but I can throw the DDX more accurately.

Adding my $0.02 worth...
I found that a 150g Star Sidewinder is insanely easy to get 300 feet with. Because of the Sidewinder's great glide, the distance comes from all technique and there is very little stress on the body. If you are throwing it hard, it will turn and burn. Give it good technique and you will be rewarded. This same principle applied to other understable drivers as well (Avenger SS, Roadrunner, etc) but I have the most experience with the Sidewinder.

Having said that, the speed of the disc needs to match the "easy" distance you want to achieve. If you want an "easy" 400 feet then this is a different batch of recommendations like the Tern/Shryke/DDX/etc.
