I mentioned P2 and Comet but my FDs are third in line. They're easy for me to get good D with very low power shots. I can put 50-60% power on them and get them to go dead straight for 300-350'. (Think of how you throw an ultimate disc for D--not a huge reach back but a slow pull through and then fast ending from sternum to finish.) This is how I can get a bunch of very understable drivers like FDs, roadrunners, and comets to go straight.

I agree with the old mold champ Beast. I haven't thrown one in a long time, but when I did they'd go surprisingly far. They have a nice bit of high speed turn and stay in the air a long time. I was always able to throw Beasts further than Orcs. I never liked the Beast L and pretty much gave up on Beasts at that point.

Not oddball, and a good answer.

Side note: I agree that the FD is long, but I wouldn't say it's "sneaky" long.

The Flow habitually ends up as far as my distance drivers, while taking a straighter, more efficient path there.

Opto Mercy can fly as far as my midranges as well. Sneaky, floaty distance.

Not a driver, but my proton ion. It goes the same distance as my mids (albeit with a bit more effort). It goes another 20' to 30' past any other putter I've thrown. Love that thing.

I’ll second CD2. I can’t get mine to flip up yet, but thrown flat or with a tick of anny, it just goes and goes.

The Ballista Pro is the only driver I have thrown in a long time that is controllable enough to be worth throwing on the course that also goes noticeably further easier than other discs I bag. I really did not expect to be adding a new mold to the bag when I tried it.
