Those are all on my longest list as well. I would add King, and since I do not throw as far as the OP, Tern is actually king of the group. I believe it's due to a combination of wing shape(It's perfect) and shallowness. For the people mentioning Crank, I do not find it competitive at all with this group.

I've thrown several Kings. Bit of a finicky mold. Really easy to turn over and not have it come back. I personally get better distance from Ballistas, but the King is definitely long. I'd put the Destiny in the same boat as the King. Flippy, but long.

As for the Nuke, I actually bag a Z. Its a long disc, but not as long (for me) as anything I listed. Nukes don't quite hold the S curve as long. They fade out a little too soon.

I've never tried any of those. I'd like to. There are still a decent amount of good, long drivers out there I haven't tried.

Me either. I like the Crank OK, but it doesn't crack my list of 10 longest drivers. The Crank just doesn't have the glide or oomph to soar past other drivers. Its long, but not remarkably so.

In all honesty, I like the Nuke more than the Crank. Not necessarily for sheer distance, but for reliability on the course. Cranks can get touchy.

I picked each of them on a whim, and they have all been in my bag since.

The knight has been the hardest for me to find an identical replacement to my og. A lot of stability variation in that mold.

Also unLace for hyzer-flip bombs. May it R.I.P.

1. 166g STAR Shryke
2. 150g Starlite Boss
3. 150g Champ Mamba
4. 162g Champ Tern
5. 144g Starlite Wraith
6. 162g Westside Tournament Destiny

These are currently in the bag. Used for crushing backhand throws consistantly to 325 and sometimes beyond.

I need a little lighter disc for my 60 year old arm speed !!

All 3, but the Shryke I bag is a G*. I've found that champ Shrykes are the shortest, but they're still pretty damn long.

G*s are flat out unbelievable.
