Signal is way more understable than a Polaris LS. I loved my 1st run Polaris LS until I lost it. I am still sad.
Even a seasoned one, like he mentioned? Keller can correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like he wants something straight at 270, but that can also be flipped, or made to turn. Maybe you were right about the Relay, if it was seasoned.

FWIW Relay is my favorite woods disc - surgeon's scalpel. And I agree with Elmex: Volt and Relay pairing can do any line.

Tried a Volt a while back and hated it! Too shallow and had a plused out rim, kept slipping out on forehand shots. Also too stable for what I was looking for at the 300ft range.

The thing I like about the Polaris and the Cheetah is that I can flip them up a little and they always come back a little, just a nice little fade that I don't have to work hard at. Throw it flat and easy, they will turn a little and come back, light touch annies and they come back, little flip up forehands and they come back. They both power down well and that's what I'm looking for.

I used to use Gazelles for this slot, but I'm down to my last DX and no one has any in stock, so I've been trying to replace them.

My other fairways are Eagles and I just added a Sting, so I'm looking for that in between slot and just thought I'd give a gyro a try. If there is nothing comperable, I'll just get another Polaris in M plastic and call it good.

Thanks for the replies so far!

Ok, for that shot, Elmex was correct. Get a Crave. 150 class. It wont have as much turn as a Polaris, but it fits your needs.

You just described a Relay but might feel it first because I don't think it's incredibly deep

Relay is all there is then. It's a great woods disc, if you like the feel. It is somewhat shallow(Leopard like), but it is not a plus rim.

MVP discs do fly "heavier" than their weight.

Of course, Polaris LS is a great disc.

Good luck.

Unless you are saying that 150 class MVP/Axiom, I would like to suggest trying the Crave at 150-157. The reason I throw gyro is that I only throw 150 class and the gyro is the only brand(s) where the flight path is true across weights and the consistency is there from run to run in the low weights.

But if you’ve already tried a 150 class Crave, disregard.
