Default 10 longest driver molds (for me)

Here's a list of my top 10 longest driver molds. Obviously this is strictly a matter of opinion. These are listed based on sheer distance potential. Not necessarily accuracy or ability to beat a headwind.

1: Innova Shryke: Simply unbeatable. Unrivaled distance potential. Nice high speed turn and great glide.
2: L64 Ballista: The Ballista is fun to throw. It has noticeable high speed turn and absolutely bombs. Like a Shryke, but a speed faster.
3: DD Sheriff: DD got this one right. A little inconsistent from disc to disc and across different plastics, but the Sheriff is a very legit, glidey bomber.
4: Prodigy D3: Much like a Shryke. Some high speed turn, speed, and lots of glide.
5: Discmania DD2: Massively long. A very wide (yet shallow) rimmed disc. Lots of high speed turn and huge S curves.
6: Vibram Lace: Can be a little erratic/flippy, but the Lace mashes. Very, very long disc with tons of glide.
7: MVP Catalyst: The Catalyst is the longest driver I've tried from the MVP/Axiom line. I liked it better than the Mayhem or Octane. The Catalyst is similar to a champion Shryke.
8: L64 Raketen: This disc will surprise you. Very long, with great glide and a nice S curve flight.
9: Innova Tern: Despite being slower than the other discs on this list, the Tern will hang with any of them. Great glider and huge S curves.
10: Innova Katana: High speed turn coupled with low speed fade make this disc a huge S curve flier. The Katana is a very, very long driver.

Honorable mentions: DD Captain, L64 Halo, Innova Colossus, L64 Bolt, Westside King, Discmania DDX, Westside Destiny, Discraft Nuke SS.

I've omitted blizzard discs from this list. Some of them are extremely long fliers, but I don't see them as useful on the course.

Anyone have any input? What are your longest drivers?

Had really mixed results with the Crank. Thrown a couple nice ones. I'd still put all those other discs over it for length, though. For a similar speed disc, I think the Tern blows it away.

Used to be D2/D3s, Nukes, Sorcerers, Wraiths, Terns, ect. Then, after back surgery and aging, I'm down to lower speed drivers. Pretty much all my distance drives are PDs and TDs these days. Went from ~400' to ~350'. I'm okay with it. Can't fight time.

Ever try a King? It’s got similar flight to a Shryke or Ballista for me, but on the right lines can go further.

Farthest discs I’ve ever thrown are the Ape and Enforcer, but not on golf lines.

I feel that I had my spine fused a year and a half ago. Went from 500+ to now maybe hitting 450 on a good day, if I manage my pain well enough. Usually I max at 400 now tho.

I never really learned to throw distance lines, but on golf lines the hurricane, crank, and tern always seemed the easiest to stretch out. I don't carry a tern or crank though, since they are inconsistent at best when I try to hammer them (mix of nose angle issues as well as getting the height right when I do get them to turn.

The hurricane has been the longest golf line driver I've thrown though, can easily/consistently throw 375' with under 10' of height and not a lot of lateral movement.
