Which of these is the Straightest?

Postby SonicDG » Sat Jul 23, 2011 8:56 am

There is a new hole added at my course that is a straight alleyway about 300ft. I can't seem to rip my buzz enough to get it 300 for fear of losing control and slamming a tree. Which of these drivers would be the best to throw on the hole:

FLX Surge SS 174g
Z Xpress 171g
Star Valkyrie 166g

Express is probably your best bet.

I also have a JLS. The Xpress seems to turn over way too easy. Do you think the JLS could do the trick?

I'd actually say the star valkyrie if its still in non-beat condition. I feel like valkyries are horribly underrated. Try throwing it with a slight hyzer angle than adjust it accordingly.

You should be able to accomplish that shot with any of the discs that were mentioned.

No driver is as straight as a mid so a longer mid would be the Comet but it is even more demanding of good form so it would force you to learn better form even more than the Buzzz. Leopard is the straightest Innova driver. IIRC i've heard the Express being compared to the Leo but i've never thrown an Express. Discraft Storm could work too but isn't it out of production?
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.

Sounds perfect for tunnels...just get it to flip flat from hyzer. That's the tunnel shot.
