This is also wrong. Teebird, Eagle, Firebird got L wings, but not the Leopard. Three Putt corrected you on this point last year in this thread: https://www.dgcoursereview.com/forum...=118727&page=3

Try out a discraft heat or an axiom insanity. The heat flies like a fairway comet and the insanity flies with the speed of a leopard 3 but the flight of a regular leopard.

Both are incredibly controllable and easy to throw, but have a lot of space to grow into throwing very precise hyzer flips or gentle turn overs

I have been using a 167g S-Line FD. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Throw it on a slight hyzer and it flips up slowly and then finishes softly to the right (RHBH). I throw it around 375 on a good pull for reference.

Pro Leopard all day. Leopard3 if you're worried about overpowering it, but I wouldn't be.

As did the TeeRex, Starfire, and Beast. Technically you could consider a flat wing Destroyer to be a DS-L as it flies completely different than a regular DS.

The closest thing I've thrown to fit your description is a Legacy Patriot. Its not super US, but when thrown fairly level it will hold strtaight and with your angles, technique it can get that late turn and sit flight. I don't think you want a REALLY US disc from what you're describing. An MVP Amp is good too but I have had an amp that was flippy as hell and one that was stable. I also have a amp that's juuuuuust right, and it does fly what you're describing.

So just from what I've used I vote a Patriot or an Amp - but as others have stated this flight with a fairway driver is best achieved with form/technique with a stable disc that's been beat in just enough. Even a beat volt would work well, or beat teebird, or TL. Oh and the F5 is good too, just depends on the run

-Patriot
-Amp
-TL
-F5
-beat Teebird
