I've been considering a CD, and what I can gather from people is what Animix has said. It may be a little slower than the Striker but might be able to handle the wind better. I forgot who, but one guy said that the CD was 15 ft. shorter than his Striker.
One good thing about the CD is that you can get it in base plastic unlike the Striker.

I also think it's a good thing that it's like a Viking with more glide.

yea the CD is a touch slower than the striker and although id say its a bit less HSS it does handle wind better, kinda like an eagle VS teebird

Jesse, how much distance between the Striker and CD are there?

Since I throw Eagles (X, naturally) I might benefit having a Striker.

If I throw both 330ish, my S CD is 15 back and left of the Striker, while my D CD is straighter finish/closer. Flight difference is mainly finish glide/last 10% and the Striker is clearly skippier on landing.

I can be happy throwing either, but like choosing from a pile of puppies, the Striker has 'made things happen' on course and just wants to be in my bag...

PS- the S is ChampyStar blend, so for cold/wet you'll want the D too

Is there one type of PD you'd reccomend over another? P vs S domey vs flat?

pd
Rhyno - Element X - Eagle - Firebird - SOLF - QOLS

Domey are good for distance. They have a lot of glide. I don't think I've ever seen a flat PD. The 1st runs are flatter than the Freak stamp, but no drastic difference.

depending on conditions i can get around 20 feet more out of my striker on most lines, for me the EX Striker combo is pretty money

The CD is more of a control fairway driver than the Striker, which is more of a controllable distance driver. The fat nose on the CD gives it a good deal of predictability, but also robs it of more potential distance. All and all, the CD is a solid disc, and a very solid disc for people in the 300' range.

this is true, id feel much more comfortable using the CD for my only fairway mold than i would a striker, that being said the CD is a weird one, its speed would clearly put in in the hybrid category with the OLF, PD, Avenger etc. but that fat nose robs it of speed so fast and reduces the glide enough to put it back in the fairway driver slot, i really do like the CD....just not as much as i like having the eagle and striker

That's how I felt about the disc too. The CD is solid, but I ended up using it less and less with my Cyclone/PD combo. It would make a hella roller though...

Sounds good. I'll have to be on the lookout for any misinterpretations of southern dialog now. :D
