Default Recommend me a glidey hyzer flip driver

I recently lost my understable fairway that was an Ace Race Heat. It was super glidey and would hyzer flip and stay straight, but still had control enough to come back if you needed that tick of stability. It was good for anhyzers and just a great understable disc that would glide with minimal effort. I no longer have that straight/understable driver in my bag and I need something great to hyzer flip.

So I ask you, DGCR, what might be a comparable replacement disc? I typically throw premium plastic (especially for drivers) so I'm looking for something that won't get killed by trees. I don't have a disc that glides quite like that Heat did, and I need a good hyzer flip/understable control driver.

Looking forward to talking disc golf with you folks again

Sounds like you want a Tern.

King and Destiny could work too, but they are faster.

I use a discraft cryztal avenger ss and a latitude 64 frost bolt for those shots. I've got a super beat opto bolt too, but it doesn't fight out it just kind of rides straight or dumps.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! Although it seems several are distance drivers, I was looking for something with a friendlier rim for my dainty little hands. I am looking right now and didn't realize the Heat was rated speed 9, I thought it was a bit slower. Anyway, I'll keep looking up your suggestions here. I'm reworking my form and still getting back into the game from my surgeries, so I can't throw very far right now but I am getting there!

Nate, I'm in a similar spot. Working back from surgery, huge distance loss, etc.
The Relay is the disc I'm throwing the best right now. Technically a speed 6, but it honestly flies faster than that.
It's got enough turn and wiggle that I can manipulate it and it'll hold the angle for a long time, but not flippy where it turns too hard and won't come back. Not sure how far you're throwing right now, but I'm probably somewhere in the 275 - 300 range now as I rehab, and I couldn't be happier with the Relay.
Highly recommended.

And...Glad you're on the mend and getting back at it.

Aww, thanks buddy! Yea, I have heard of your woes on here. I hope you are doing better as well! I know it must be tough disc golfing with your shoulder. It's nice to have someone to relate to even though our medical histories are completely different. Since my whole situation I got a Fission Volt that I've been rocking that flies pretty much like my Teebird, but is easier to chuck. On MVP's site it only has the Relay in Neutron, which for me has killed glide in the MVP discs I've had. Maybe it's just me... does it glide alright? I have a Neutron Volt that is like a brick.

Right now I'm throwing probably 300ish max... my friend said I threw 350 the other day but I'm not so sure, although it was a good rip. I'm finally feeling a little stronger and I've gone to the gym a few times with my girlfriend. Thanks again, your post made me feel good Keep on keeping on, brother!
