Thanks. Only asked because I really don’t throw much Innova and I know sometimes even in the same run there are sometimes differences even between the different colors.

I’ll try and order up a couple of 170 ish DX Beasts and take them out to a field and throw them alongside a couple of my trusty big distance discs and see how they stack up. Having smaller hands, I definitely prefer discs in the speed 9/10 category for the way they feel in my hand. I just haven’t found anything in that speed range that gets me the kind of distance I get with a couple of my 12/13 discs.

Hopefully the Beast surprises me.

I do this from time to time and my old Beasts always hang with the new stuff. The problem with any high-speed (10+) DX disc is that even one solid tree hit can seriously change the flight. But if you're using it for distance purposes then that's usually not much of a problem.

Another 10-speed that I really like is the Legacy Nemesis. It's a great understable driver, for me it's very comfortable in the hand and can get some big downwind distance. Probably closest comparison is an Avenger SS. I currently bag a beat-up Sparkle Nemesis as my roller or hard-right-turn disc.

Step up to a Pro Beast. They have great glide and will last a lot longer than DX.
DX Beasts have a very short life span.

I really like the Boatman as of late. You would be hard pressed to call it a true speed 11, as the rim width is similar to an Orc and it's actually got a larger diameter, making the rim width really seem even relatively smaller. Plus, it's actually quite deep, which is kind of neat.

My favorite Speed 10 used to be my old Champion Orc until I drilled it into the corner of an electrical box on the course. Never flew the same, and I can't find a suitable replacement.

Now I carry a Pro Starfire which for me flies great.

For those that don't know, the Pro Starfire is the Starfire-L, a.k.a. the SL.

It will but the modern DX plastic is not the best for shear keeping its flight in discs 8 speed on up, try the Pro or Champion for a better disc if you find you like the Beast.

I have a max weight star Beast.

The challenge was that a DX Beast could give my max distance drivers a run for their money.

Probably wouldn’t be fair if I tried champ or pro or even my star plastic.

I have a nicely beat in Star Beast that is just money. On an open shot it would definitely give my distance drivers a run for it.

I know alot of guys are mentioning the Beast. I couldn't get on with either of mine, they were absolute meathooks.

That being said,

I don't bag anything higher than a 10 speed except for my Force for fighting headwinds.

I am a religious Anax thrower, I bag 4 of them. The Z/Esp Blend First Run I have is absolute money. Flips up from a slight Hyzer, glides and fades out nice and softly.

I enjoyed my Muskets aswell but as the Proto Anax' seasoned a bit I got a similar flight out of them, so took the muskets out.

I dig my Avenger SS' aswell for tunnel shots.

And despite the fact Prodigy claims the new FX-2 as a 9 speed, the wing is the same width as my muskets, Anax, avengers, so I'd classify it as a nice 10 speed aswell.
