Default 2018- What is everyone's longest disc these days?

With all the new stuff out in the last couple years, I'm just curious to see what driver people are throwing for max distance these days. Air distance, not rollers. MAX distance too, not necessarily controlled distance.

I max out at 450' and lately have been using a G* Shryke 168g to get that distance.

Honorable mentions:

Prodigy D3- Very similar to the Shryke.
Colossus- Sneaky long when you put enough arm on it.
Destiny- Very long, but hard to control.
Nuke SS- Same as the Destiny. Hard to control, but occasional 450' bombs.
G* Boss- Enough high speed turn to really flex out for huge distance.
Blizzard Boss- Same as above. Not overly useful on the course, but the Blizz Boss can outdistance almost anything in a field session.
Ballista- Probably Lat64's longest driver for me. Short of the Shryke, but not by much.
Champion Tern- The Shryke knocked this disc off its pedestal. The Shryke is hands down the better disc for me in terms of distance and accuracy. Tern is still noteworthy though. For a speed 12 it glides well and bombs.
Mamba- Somewhat surprising how far this understable speed 11 disc flies. Super understable and wild, but the Mamba has few peers in terms of sheer distance potential. It'll fly as far as almost anything.

I actually like the one of these I have. I found it in a lake. 158g. Its stable enough to be thrown hard. Flexes out massively for big distance. If I were feeling it I could probably get the starlite Tern out to 450'. Not good for any sort of headwind though.

Tern... type and weight is dependent on the conditions.

Still holding off on getting a Shryke but I'm constantly being tempted by it.

It's split between my Pro Wraith (167g) and Star Thunderbird (175g). I rarely use my Wraiths now so I'm usually able to get the Thunderbird out around 400' with an anyhzer FH. I just don't know who you people are that are getting out 450'+. You really throw that far?

Tern. 167g Star in most conditions, 157g or 167g Champion into headwinds.

S-CD3 may become my distance driver, though I'm not quite getting the same distance as the Tern. Rim not as wide, feels better in the hand.

much debate between internet distance and real life distance

however, ive thrown with some people who are "hitting 450+" and barely make it past 325.

its not just lying on the internet, some people truly believe it.

Yeah. You won't probably ever hear me say I can hit 450' consistently. I can't. I can touch it probably 1 in 10 drives. I think before I threw the Shryke I'd never hit 450' before. Putting work in practicing and using drivers with great glide have allowed me to slowly gain yardage. 5 years ago I would never sniff 450' no matter how hard I tried.

BTW, if you can get a Thunderbird 400' you could probably do 450' with a Shryke. The Shryke is longer and has way more glide. Harder to control though. More understable.

Also, getting from 400' to 450' is a HELL of a lot harder than getting from 350' to 400'.
