Oops! Gotta add one more to the mix: the I-Blend Sphinx. Best new disc in the past couple of years, for my geriatric purposes.

Get one between 164-168, and put out some pretty easy distance.

Gonna second the Saint here.

For real easy distance I like lightweight, flippy discs. Stuff like blizzard Bosses or Katanas. Also, star Terns and Shrykes will do the job. Right now I'd say my longest disc is a 160g star Tern. It isn't accurate for crap, but put on a hyzerflip line will soar out past 450' regularly. I think the longest throw I ever had was with a super light blizzard Katana. 480'ish.

For slower discs, the Heat, Sidewinder, and Mamba are very long. If you can figure out how to keep a Mamba from flipping entirely it could be the longest disc in your bag. I've had some absolute jaw dropping bombs with Mambas.

If I had to pick just one driver to throw slowly and still bomb with it would be a lightweight star Tern. Just unbelievable distance.

None of the discs I mentioned here would ever be used for accuracy. Simply pure distance.

I have a noodle arm and I've had a lot of success with Terns as well. I also just started messing with Sorcerer's and Sword's from Westside and definitely have been giving my Terns a run for their money.

DD Mavericks are newer and fantastic for easy distance and hyzer flips. Another lesser known mold would be a Westside Stag. Hatchets and fury's are also great. But again as has been said a hundred times you can't go wrong with Valks/sidewinders/roadrunners. Mambas can work but get real squirrely in any kind of wind. I personally love me a Maverick though.

A mold I have used with success to get easy distance is a 150 gram DX Dragon but that woud be due to its lightweight. I do not like that the mold is a R style DX or R-DX when Innova has Blizzard Champion that might help the mold not need replacing every 2.5-3 years with summer weekend use due to that lightweight DX getting broken in too quick. Now the mold works for mostly 80-90% open shots calm wind and tailwind. Also nice you have a Water disc. If the hole had any trees in the fairway do not use. Another is the Wahoo in both R-Pro and Blizzard Champion limited run from the Innova Factory Store, both are Water float discs according to Innova. My brother likes the Whaoo for tailwind shots and calm open 80-90% open bomber shots. The R-Pro for the Wahoo is usually going to be stiffer then the R-Pro plastic used for putters, unless you find a good run of R-Pro putters made in the stiffer old style.

G* Shryke bombs. You have to throw it on hyzer and any head wind it won't come back. Esp heat is the longest fairway I've ever thrown too. Its more stable than the numbers suggest.
