I consider the Whippet between a mid-range and driver.
It is overstable to begin with and when broken in becomes a nice straight flier.

I am primarily a right-handed forehand thrower, and I find it difficult to get information regarding disc flight. I have only been playing for a month, but I practice every day in a wide-open field. I have two Whippets, a normal and a CE version. I can throw them with more hyzer than any other disc, without the tendency turn over and roll. This allows me to get throw a sharp dogleg left with them. I prefer either a Valkyrie or Banshee for driving because of their increased distance.

I won't even consider playing a round of disc golf without a Whippet. Hard fade, great into the wind, they always do what you ask of them. I use whippets to drive on holes from 200-275 feet and for approach shots of 80-175 feet when I've got an open shot. Throw a long approach straight at the hole and you can glide a long way past the basket...Whippets don't glide, you just throw a big hyzer with them and you'll be likely to wind up close to the pin. Whippets are very overstable... they are more overstable than a Firebird or a Banshee, and a little less overstable than a Ram. You can't get huge "D" with them but they are pinpoint accurate.

I got this one when I started throwing in 1994 I think. I use the original version though I am not sure what the Whippet X is. It is very overstable and I use the heaviest I can find for the hard left turns at maximum distance. I throw it where the trees round left and the basket is a long way down the tree line. It is great into the wind. Since I throw it into the blind areas I get brighter colors and I have lost several of them but when I find them they are usually the closest to the pin. Takes experience to fly it but it is worth it. I throw it hard as I can flat and let it take it's natural turn. My favorite trick in the disc bag. I think I am the only one I know using it.
