Here's my write-up on my drivers. I would love some thoughts on narrowing down these categories.
156 Blizzard Boss - Shows some high speed turn when thrown flat, fades predictably, but horrible in a headwind. If I get it low enough, it's a frozen rope...but that's hard to get the right nose angle.
148 Blizzard Katana - It's hard to get this to fly consistent. Admittedly, I need to work on my throwing form, because sometimes I can overpower this and send it into a roller, where other times it flies a slow-turning line that fades predictably. It needs more height than the Boss.
I'm leaning toward the Boss for Max D, but I could entertain the Krait or some other straight 11-12 speed disc that isn't Blizzard. I'm not against B plastic, but I like the predictability of heavier discs.
175 12x Champ Firebird - Flat, super beefy, pretty new
175 11x Champ Firebird - Flat, much more workable and still fights wind realllly well
I love these two as a duo here: 12x for overhand and stupid-stiff headwinds, 11x for headwinds, downhill, and more workable overstable shots
Overstable / Stable Control
169 S PD - Beefy, kinda new, great forehand disc and headwind disc. I stepped down from this to Teebirds because of how much power it needs, but I do love the way it flies. If I could find a less stable S PD, I might be more apt to have them in my bag again. I'm weary of P PD's because of how bad the recent plastics have run (hard and not durable).
171 Champystar Teebird - What I love about this disc is how much glide it has and how predictable it is. Where it falls short is on forehands and headwinds, so it's pretty much only good for one type of shot: it can't take too much anhyzer or hyzer before it goes way off line.
175 11x Champ Teebird - Admittedly I really want to keep this disc because it's an 11x. It shows high speed turn, sucks in a headwind, but it has such a beautiful flight otherwise. Strangely, it does decently well with forehand shots.
I would love to go back to PD's because of how they do so well on a wide variety of shots. If I could find the right ones, I would be hooked again.
Understable / Distance
170 Champystar Valk - I have three of these, and one is more seasoned than the others. That one shows a little bit of high speed turn, has decent glide, and predictable fade that isn't too bad that it loses distance. I picked up three from the same run so I could work on distance with a disc that wouldn't "cheat". These fly almost identical to my S TD's, but I think they will break in much faster.
169 Champystar TD - Like I said, this flies almost the same as my C/S Valks. It's a great line-holding disc with decent glide. It might take some headwind a touch better, and I think this will stay stable a lot longer than Valks. I also have a 172 S TD that is a touch more stable.
169 Champystar FD - This started out straight and stable, but now it flies with a beautiful slow-turning flight. I love how it shapes lines - higher anhyzer lines carry for a long time and don't flip. I can get it to fly on a frozen rope if thrown low enough, but if I dont get it low enough it does have enough LSS to keep me from wanting to use it in tunnels.
This is where I need the most help. These discs all seem to overlap a lot. Assuming I go with Firebirds and PD's, what would you guys suggest?
