understable drivers (for huge long annies)

Postby zealot » Fri Sep 22, 2006 1:36 am

whats your favorite as of right now? (please also discuss using understable out of the box and beat in overstable stuff too) currently im using a star leopard for shorter/gentler annie and a champ sidewinder for the long ones. the champs almost beat up enough to feel sweet but im wondering if there's anyting else out there that's just money. im lookin also for a disc that would fade right from a flat release.

fade ride from flat release would be a stingray....which is an understable fairway driver..

for bomber annies....i've seen people use roadrunners....and beat up pro wraiths...

i guess whatever does the job ut the roadrunner is understable outta the box

I've been using a beat Gazelle recently, but I've had really good luck with a beat Orion LS, too. They seem to hold an anny without coming out and without crashing too early really well.

The polaris LS is good for that shot too. I gave mine away to a newb on the course whoe was throwing an ultimate disc. I use a beat DX leopard, but want to try the Roadrunner.

DX Beast (Old mold)
I finally birdied my nemesis hole a few weeks ago with this disc. Too bad they don't make them anymore. I have two, with a Sidewinder waiting to take their place.

beat up DX teebird can be released hyzer and will flip anhyzer and not come back. Anhyzer bombs with a light X Avenger.

I used to use the sidewinder but lately ive been using a broken in DX Valkyrie (171g), I find it holds a more consistent turn and will not fade back, the SW would sometimes fade back, sometimes not. For a bit shorter, much more controlled annys I use a 3 yr old Z-XL, once you get it on an anny line it holds it beautifully.

I second the broken in X Avenger. I also like beat in Rocs for sky ranching in addition to Wizards if I'm close enough and have some elevation.

"sky ranching"?

I like to throw beat wizards for shorter annys as well. Very predictable!

It's when one ranches the sky! Thrown very high with a flippy disc released hyzer with wrist roll. It will come gliding down perpendicular to your original trajectory almost and it looks fancy.

I love using Champ Valkyries for this shot more than anything. Ironically I don't have any of those in my bag right now...So I'm using the new Pro Valks I have. My two beat up DX ones dive waaaaaay to hard. A TeeRex works well too.
Stay positive and love your life.

I guess my dx valk is more beat up then, that's my annie disc of choice. The roadrunner is a great one too, it just gets a bit squirrley on me sometimes.

Either an S Wizard or a D Buzzz for shorter annies in the 200-300 range depending on the line, and a Star Wraith for huge ones.

It all depends on line, if I want a one w more left to right that accually comes down perpendicular I throw a more stable disc (newer heavier x avenger, or occasional teebird) if I want to hyzerflip one over I use a less stable lighter disc (avenger) if I want to throw one that comes back at the end I throw a newer stable driver (avenger) and If I want one that holds a gradual turn at a lower height I throw a newer light driver (avenger) ;-)

really whatever disc you learn will work. But a broken in more stable driver (preferably one you already throw) will be more predictable, and if it is a disc you already throw you learn it better while breaking it in and you will find yourself knowing that mold (in all stages of wear) better.
