Default straight driver??

looking for a driver with a pretty straight flight path, i have a decent amount of power behind my throw. so far i have had best results with Nuke SS (FLX ESP)

any suggestions?

I just tested out the new Westside Sorcerer and found it to be very fast with a lot of glide and a stable (neutral) flight. They don't come out online to retailers until this Friday night at midnight or Saturday but it's something to consider if you aren't in a rush and can wait a couple days. It's not as flippy as a Nuke SS though. Numbers are 13/6/0/2 Big arms with good form can probably get a little turn but the slight fade will bring it back to neutral.

How far are you throwing it? whats wrong with the nukeSS?

Something slower should be better. How far do you max your mids/putters out?

If you like discraft, stalkers are very straight so is their xpress.

I use tangents, Pa4, volts.

i like my nuke SS, just want to try other things and see how i do. haven't been playing very long. with the nuke SS i am prolly somewhere around 320ft. but not exactly sure.

as for discs like the express, i don't seem to have luck with discs with small lips like that. and i seen a pre production sorcerer the other day on Facebook, ill definitely have to pick one of those up.

and ive never tried to throw a mid range or putter far, always to used them to approach.

A Champ Beast might work nicely for straight throws in the 320 ft range

320 feet sounds like you need to be throwing 9-10 speed discs MAX... but since you dont like the narrow rims..

Tern, Trespass, Krait?

I know many lower power level (under 400' distance) love the tern.
