I voted XL. It is a good combination of control, versatility and has the ability to go dead straight. Kinda like a cyclone, and kinda like a stalker.
I use ESP and old Elite X/JB XLs depending on wind/shot and day.

I also would have voted pred, as my pred's are my most used drivers. Z/ESP/X depending. There are usually 4-7 in my bag.

I don't really have a favorite. You've definitely got some great discs missing from the poll though. The Force and the Flash are both in my bag and are great discs. The Predator is another great disc that I used to throw. Discs that are on your list that I carry are the Flick, Nuke, Stalker, and Avenger SS.
My favorite is whichever one gets me the birdie!

My top 3 choices are not up there. Kind of funny. But anyways, those 3 in no set order are preds, forces, and trackers. I do also have an xl, a surge, 2 avengers, and a nuke for more situational roles but those 3 are my mostly used drivers.

Predator, just a FH machine.

And if its a REALLY stiff headwind, I throw my Force.

A pred will handle a bigger headwind than a force IMO. My 167 Z Force will even flip up from a hyzer and get the slightest turn. No Z pred I have thrown will flip up into a turn.
Force is great D into the wind though.
I have thrown discrafts whole line up in about every plastic offered Except some of the SS stuff and Nuke.
Its hard to compare different categories so much and pick a "favorite"

If the hole turns gently right my XL will be my favorite. If its long low celing and fades left, my force will. Hard left right, tall trees ect my pred will. . . These three drivers are my fav drivers, but all are favorites in different ways.

Rusch your description is about how I feel, except I loved all my XL's before the tracker came out.

BTW there are some super stable Forces out there that are more HSS than a Pred.

Look for the pop-top domey ones as they are the most overstable.
