G* starfire vs. Champion destroyer. Are these going to be similar to each other? My destroyer (162g) almost flies like 12/5/-2/3.5 ---> I'm looking for slightly less turn and ideally less fade. I assume a g* skips less so a 3.5 in g* may be like a 3 in champion. What do you think?

I think you're overthinking it.

A fresh Star Wraith might be a good option.

The answer isn't a unicorn disc. It's learning to throw the shot you need. Archer, not arrow.

Every good archer needs a quiver he can trust.

Understable stuff doesn't mask OAT like overstable stuff.

Most Destroyers don't have -2 turn. A new star Destroyer might work for you. It combines speed with minimal turn, and good distance.

Few star Destroyers I've ever thrown have had more than -1 turn.

For something completely different, Discraft Machete.

I bag a heavy Champ Firebird and use it for all three of those shots.

But if I'm trying to get a straight forehand shot or throwing a max distance forehand drive, I definitely don't use the Firebird.

What constitutes a FH driver? I throw every disc in my bag both ways. Same question for OH. What flight are we after? I'll throw something super OS or fairly US depending on the flight I want.
