Default Fairway Driver Help

So I have my whole bag figured out (Finally!) Except Fairway Drivers.

I carry I Rival that for me is okay but in any kind of wind it seems to flip over. I also have a beat up Recycled Spark that I found but that's kind of the opposite, a little too stable.

I've tried a Champ TeeBird and wasn't a fan of that, as well as the MVP servo.

I throw my E-mac Truth and my Shields really well though, and would like to find a driver mold that flies similarly to those but I can get a little more D and a touch more fade out of.

Thanks!

(My first post other than the Marketplace so take it easy on me)

Also I throw ~330 max RHBH predominant

Seems to me like an overstable Teebird would be exactly what you want. What didn't you like about the champion?

I generally like Champion/Z plastic, but Teebirds seem to excel in Star for some reason.

The volt is my only real fairway driver I bag right now. Straight to fade when new, straight to more straight when beat up (like mine is). A max weight proton/neutron should have a decent fade to start out with, while a fission could be slightly less stable from the get go. Craves I've found are good for line shaping fairways but they just aren't in my bag right now.

Default Fairway Driver Help

I've been throwing a champ thunderbird recently and have liked that. I like the higher speed since it reaches into the shorter D.D. gap and is slow enough to handle most fairway shots.

It hasn't been in the bag for a bit, and my form has probably improved a little since I took it out, but I remember it just flying more stable than I anticipated.

I've been considering the Eagle but I'm not sure if that's just a more stable teebird or if you really get the -1 turn. talking about the X-mold.

I would really like to throw out the Alpha from Mint Discs. Truly is a fantastic and extremely versatile mold. I think it could easily be a work horse driver for pretty much every golfers bag.

Sounds like you need a Sexton Firebird. Not really, at 330' of max distance, you should prolly be looking at either slower fairways or understable-ish control drivers. Maybe a Discmania S-CD2, Star Eagle, or Prodigy 400S F2

The Servo I think was supposed to have that -1 turn and mine was a 167 neutron that never even thought about turning, I thought it was even more stable than my teebird and pretty close to my spark. The Crave has been on my radar as well.

I throw a Star Thunderbird and a Pro Thunderbird, the Star is my headwind driver, and I haven't thrown the Pro enough to report on that one quite yet.

If anyone has seen Paul throw his TeeBird3, that is the flight I's like to see. That real straight with a hair of finish at the end, I'm assuming if I threw a TB3 it would just be even beefier than a normal TeeBird though.

I was thinking about getting one. Sound like you highly recommend. What would you compare it to, or is it in a class of its own?
