Same here, I should just throw them more often and take the accuracy over distance. I throw a seasoned 175 champ x that holds any line and fades out nicely and tops out around 375-385. I just got a new 175 dx x that flips out a little more then my seasoned champ and just keeps gliding, its a beautiful accurate disc and I need to crush one and see if it goes out longer then the champ. I like the way the new Dx plastic feels. Getting a lighter one soon.

As far as their skills allow. I can't help but notice you ask this question a lot. So you know, it can't be stressed enough that distance comes from the indian not the arrow. Any driver can potentially get huge distance in the right hands and vice versa. I know it's tough for newer players to interpret what all the somewhat abstract numbers on the discs mean. The Innova rating system seems to imply that you can judge a disc's distance by it's numbers but it just doesn't work that way. I'm not judging or calling you out or anything I've just seem you ask this a lot and figured an explanation might be in order.

My favorite 12x Eagle-L. It's very grippy, very flat, and actually very stable for an L. I've thrown it maybe 5 times: 1st time I parked a hole with a sidearm, 2nd time I smashed chains on a bh hyzer, and the last time I aced a ~260' blind hyzer hole that played uphill. It's in wall hanger mode/semi-retirement after the ace.

I only have 4 discs faster and they both have the same flight characteristics, Orc and Destroyer lol. The Eagle goes far enough and is accurate enough that I rarely need to use a wide rim driver.
