Fightingthetide wrote:Yeah, the issue really lies within my driver slots. I like the idea of sticking to a 7 speed driver as my workhorse and getting a 9 speed for distance (when necessary). Is it going to be more beneficial to switch to TB's and TL's over the Eagle molds because of increased glide? I think this is where I get stuck in my mind when thinking about which disc to make my workhorse.

170 Viking / 165 Star Valk - Distance (headwind/tailwind)
175 CFR C PD - Very Overstable
175 Champ ??? - Overstable
170 Star and DX ??? - Stable Control
165-170 ??? - Understable

I want a distance driver with some horizontal movement, so I might go with a lighter Star Valk for tailwind and no-wind distance, and a 175 Champ Valk for headwind distance. I have no experience with these discs...would this work for me as a distance driver setup, at my power level?

I throw both of those, and I have a feeling as my P PD breaks in it will end up being fairly long. Valk should be a little easier to throw (power wise) than your PDs.

I think, maybe I'm misunderstanding, that he wants to limit the number of drivers he has over speed 7 or so.
From that standpoint, just adding one max D driver, and using his EXs for things like headwinds, would fit the bill.
It's been a while since I've thrown a Valk, but I remember they do have a substantial fade. It really wants to fly as an 'S' shape line. Should have more turn than your slightly beat P-PD with similar fade (maybe even a bit more).
Fightingthetide wrote:Yes, that's true. I do want to limit what I throw above speed 7 so I can work on improving form, snap, etc. and at the same time keep from hyzering off the fairway.
Were you saying a Valk would have more fade than my seasoned P PD? Or more high speed turn?
