Review: I have played only 3 months or so, and I have 2 of these # 3 Drivers. I find they are very predicable and glide the straightest with a little fade to the right at the very end. They are my favorites, along with a Cobra I have. I even use them to putt. I hit a 100 footer with one of them this week.

Review: I've got a 188 gram brick of a Driver 3. I love it. I hurl it. I heave it. Drops like a rock no matter if there's wind or not. Got to have some muscle behind it, but it rarely drifts.

The lightning #3 is one of the best gliding drivers I own. It has superior glide and distance as well as speed when thrown correctly. Since it is somewhat under-stable it will usually curve right, but I have made several S-shots that leave me in the perfect postion for a birdie/par. Also, it doesn't roll too much unless thrown using the tomahawk style throw or a side arm (right handed). I would not recommend this disc for a beginner unless they are accustomed to controling an understable disc. Overall I rate this disc an 8 out of 10 for its great glide and control.

Very smooth to throw, and glides better because of the large diameter. This disc has a tendency to roll right when not thrown correctly so I wouldn't recommend it for a newbie.
