I'd start off with a Valkyrie, then if you want something faster, a Tern. Then if you want to torque it more and rip it harder, Destroyer.

Get an ESP Nuke for a max speed overstable driver. Perfect for hyzers and long drives, the ESP plastic has tremendous gripability even when wet and it breaks in nicely to a longer, glidey, straighter Nuke much faster than a Z. The Nuke is maxed out to the PDGA's allowed specs. Though many claim otherwise, there is nothing faster! But it will probably be pretty overstable for a while until it breaks in.

I bought a disc. I was limited to what I could find locally. There are more places to look but only one place was open when it had time to buy. I bought a blizzard boss 150g disc. As soon as I try it I will report back. I think this is a good choice IF I have enough arm to throw it.

I would have stuck with the reccomendations. Not a fan of blizzard or max speed rim widths. Especially being old school haha!

I can understand the limitations of selection you were facing, and some of those berating you for not going with their recommendations must not have read your post.

The Blizzard Boss is okay; even for noodle arms it'll get out there to the maximum of your ability to throw discs. It may be that you are past the 'point of diminishing returns', and lesser speed discs will get you just as far with not as much effort, but just make sure to learn good form (see some videos for that) and enjoy your disc.

And being from Augusta, do some googling to find where nearby Play It Again Sports (PIAS) or other good disc-selling stores are. A road trip to Atlanta, Columbia or the Greenville (and Clemson) areas might be indicated. (Athens does not have a PIAS )

So I should have bought a lower speed heavier disc to maximize distance?
