Once I realized this and started throwing with a little more touch and hyzer, I got it back under control. I picked up numerous Fuzion Defenders with the intention of beating them up, getting them to where a new World is at. That would be ideal. In the meantime, Defenders are awesome sidearm discs - something I can do for average results, but I am getting better.
Trilogy's premium plastic doesn't wear well. Their discs can suddenly become flippy without outwardly showing any signs of use or being beat.

I've had Sheriffs and Trespasses randomly stop flying properly and become uselessly understable.

I like the Defender, but even it will wear into a point of uselessness. They take longer to beat in than Worlds. Worlds are faster and longer, however.

I guess my point is, I'd never bag any Trilogy mold simply because I don't have a lot of faith in their plastic quality. Some of their molds are very good, but they beat too fast and become inconsistent without warning. Z, champion, star, and ESP all last many times longer than any plastic Trilogy makes.

May have finally found my downwind driver. Down wind has always been a struggle for me because to throw with good power, I must throw low. Well, we finally had some decent dead down wind conditions on two of our open par 4s. had my longest drives there of my life with a 150 gram DX Wraith.

I dont bag one but the Infinte Discs Pharaoh is the disc I can consistently throw the farthest. It doesn't have to be in just a tailwind. They fly farther than my Destroyers and DD3s by 20' or more.

Lightweight Pinnacle Outlaws are still my longest flyers. I’ve been stocking up on second runs in the 166-169 range. They’re a little tough to find but not expensive yet.

They’re a little more stable than the first runs and tend to have more dome. They need to be broken in to hold a turnover or fly far downwind.

Consistently throwing 380-390ish, sometimes there’s a freak day where I can throw 420-430 but I haven’t figured out what I’m doing differently. Sometimes it just clicks.

The Pharaoh is a good mold. My Pharaoh flies a lot like my Pro Shrykes, with a tad more stability. If I know I ate my Wheaties on a given day and I'd turn the Shryke over, I'll bag the Pharaoh instead of the Shryke.

On flat land, a Star Tern. Not by much over a hyzerflipped Roadrunner, though.

Pharaoh is a get mold, but I really like the Emperor better, almost all of the glide and speed and the added predictability the higher wing gives you.

Sasquatch! If I was to ever climb to the top of Mt. Thor on Baffin Island, I would throw a sasquatch off the summit (with a tobu disc tracker to find it eventually). I mean, it's only fitting that I throw a Canadian disc off of it. But yeah, I throw the sasquatch further than all of my others right now, but I do have some consistency issues with it.

150gr Star Wraith.

Don't throw it often, but it's my longest controllable distance driver.
