I know that I should put the big drivers down and concentrate on throw something more on my power level however those are the discs I get the most distance from.
This could be a release issue that some people have. What happens is that you torq the disc over with a anyhzer release but since the disc is more stable it fights back giving you a little more distance due to the glide on some of those distance drivers. I have not seen you throw so this is just an educated guess. You will see guys use discs like the wraith, Boss and Nuke where the disc flips wide right and then pull back to the left putting them further down the fairway. Problem is that is not the recomended flight pattern for those discs. With a big arm they should have a subtle pull to the right and then a predictable fade at the end of its flight path. Not a hard left turn on the way down.
I watched a video by DF and KC and DF recommended that new throwers should be looking at under-stable discs. I know that some of the discs your recommending are slightly over-stable. Could you talk a bit on your reasoning behind this.Most of the discs I have chosen are Under-stable to give me more of a straight level flight. And then I can see what it is with my throw that I need to work on.
The drivers I listed can reach thier optimal cruising speed based on the driver distance you listed. They also are discs that you can grow with. The two best ones in my opinion being Cyclone and Gazelle as they work on multiple lines. They are a little more stable than the Leopard and Cheetah. If the Cyclone and Gazelle look a little more stable than what you want at the moment pick up a Cheetah or a Polaris and try those. I missed your Leopard on your list as a favorite if its working for you stick with it. You could pick up Leopard in other plastics or wieghts for additional stability.
I also know that I have some overlap in the Buzz and Coyote. I did that just to see how they both performed and I will remove one sooner or later.
Mids are awsome and thier are a lot to choose from. For me its the most enjoyable disc to throw. You might find that playing some mid and putter only rounds will help you achieve more distance with your drivers as well. No one wants to play putter only rounds all the time but occasionally its worth it just to work on the little things.
Anyways, Thanks for the info.
