Default overstable fairway driver

hey all!
I was looking for some input on some good overstable fairway drivers that are good for both rhbh and flicks.
Reasoning behind this is that many of the courses around me have some shorter holes with some good bends to them and my regular drivers dont turn enough and go too far.
I have been debating Lat64 XXX and Innova Firebird. Any thoughts or other suggestions?
(im a poor college student so buying more than 1 disc just to try isnt really and option...)

Firebird, Predator. Those two will be suggested most.

If you want one just for flicks and Backhand. I would get a non stiff Firebird.

I'd be thinking more along the lines of a whippet myself. Love the whippet (and the firebird for longer, and the max for extra longer) but all the same basic line, just different distances.

Lots of choices depending on the distance you want. Firebird and Predator are both great longer overstable fairway drivers, banshee and whippet are also plenty overstable and a little slower.

My suggestions are as follows:

Innova Banshee or Millennium EXP1 both are speed 7's and will handle the wind and be overstable for your needs....they can both be flicked and used as Thumbers/Tomahawks as well.

I believe the Firechicken will be too fast for what you are looking for as it is a speed 9.

Do you want something that will fly straight out of your hand and fade hard (like 'L') or something that starts fading right out of your hand (like 'C')?

The whippet is a shorter fairway driver that will cut right for you and keep going. Buy a glo champ. They stay OS for a really long time.
