Sounds like its worth a try. 165-169g weight range I guess? I don't like Champion plastic so much so a Star one sounds good. If I can't find a lighter weight one will a 175g do the trick? If I recall correctly the Katana is Garrett Gurthie's favorite choice of distance driver for max D.

Oh and also what about a Echo star plastic one? Too flippy or a good choice?

I'm not a huge fan of echo star plastic. It seems too much like pro to me. Rubbery, gummy, and it tends to warp. It beats up quickly too.

A star Katana in the mid to high 160s would probably be all the distance you need.

An Archon in Star with average to taller dome or a Tern are what the OP is looking for with the glide and the speed just try to get no more then 170-171 gram disc but best bet is upper 160's gram weight set. One plastic of the Tern is an Archon in flight just a speed faster with more glide, I just forget the plastic since I do not use the mold.
