Last summer i tried what seemed like a million different drivers and could not find one that seemed to just fit i guess you could say. I found ones i liked but really nothing that i absolutely had to have and went out and bought more. I tried a Halo, Teebird, River, Rouge, Surge, Surge SS, Avenger SS, PD, Savage, Apache, and a Assassin. Out of those i like the Assassin best but it still just doesnt seem quite right. If you guys have any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated. Also i might be moving South which would be awesome cause then i can play year round.

What is not quite right about the Assassin? Are your drivers stalling and fading hard left, turning and burning into the ground, or what?

Help me, help you. (What are your mids and putters, RHBH/FH/LHBH, etc.?)

Aye, we need to know what kind of flight you're lookin' for. Also, how far you throw the assassin, and what it flies like when you release it flat would be helpful too.

I play RHBH predominety. Idk I'm manly looking for something I can throw all ways I try to to throw a s-curve but ill try anything for better distance. My accuracy is excellant though I hit about 80% of fairways so not throwing to far doesn't bother me to much. I just want more distance. So I guess what I'm looking for is a good utility driver that is easy to thrw far.

Try a Stalker. I've had mine out to 350', and you can drive nails with that thing. I'd also try out an X-Avenger, but beat it in a little.

maybe time to disc down,and start from the bottom and work up the chart,of drivers,but for a suggestion,a sidewinder is one of those disc right out the box thats ready to go,very controllable ,understable so it wont get away from its line and peel off right on you,old ones make great roller disc

If you're looking to get more distance without throwing a stupidly fast disc (I added the last part in for your own good), then I'd say get a Valkyrie. If you can't throw hard, it'll be a nice all around driver, while if you can it'll be an awesome hyzer-flip/turnover driver that'll get better with age.

I tried a stalker also last year to no avail but ill definetly try a JLS ive heard some ok things about them and idk if discing down is the thing cause i throw my mids quite well off the tee only about 10" less then my drivers thats why im looking for a driver with the right fit that i can throw farther then my mids. Also i was planning on trying a Valk again that was my first distance disc about 2 or so years ago and i loved it but got caught up in the big speed thing and now im gonna go back and try it. Hopefully the store that is around here is open tomorrow and will have a couple so i can try them out
