I will throw this disc just so I can say I threw an FD. Then I will giggle.

I was assuming he was saying a control driver as understable as the river, which in my experience (I have throw three different opto rivers) are about the same as a TL, except less predictable

Wouldn't a "faster teebird" equate to "Not a fairway driver"?

The speed of fairway drivers has slowly and subtly been redefined as distance drivers get faster.

Wut? Teerex X :-D
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

The best river I've thrown to date was nothing like a TL (although I've thrown several that are similar). It had the same turn as a leopard, possibly a little less fade, though really similar, and just blew the socks off of a leopards glide, all while being faster. This one in particular was a slightly lighter river, 172, if I recall. All of the others that I've thrown (close to max weight) were TLish.

I may have to get my hands on some lighter rivers now...

almost all the rivers I've thrown (which have all be 169+) have been more stable than I expected them to be. Great disc just not quite the understable EX compliment I was looking for.

maybe it is a buzz on steriods. Oh wait wrong company.

A faster cheetah would be cool.

You almost have to break driver into 3 levels anymore fairway, distance and warp speed.

True, but a seasoned TL does what you tell it to.

Me: TL, turn right.

TL: Okay!

See what I mean?
Well if you're going that way, any speed 7-8 disc will fit if you beat it enough. =P Though I did completely forget about the XL.

but what really is the difference between a "Fairway driver" and a "Control driver"? 20 feet?
