I think the PD/OLF/Avenger are the "standard" control drivers nowadays.

I don't think of control drivers as any particular speed range, they're basically any driver that's easy to control on different shots and isn't too touchy (wind, OAT etc.), nor a meathook. TeeBird, Eagle, most premium Leopards I've thrown (surprisingly stable), VIP King, Quasar, good premium DD's, PD's, Avenger, OLF, JLS, all of those certainly qualify.

Pls elaborate. Aren't the ones I've bolded generally thought of as warp speed drivers? I'm surprised that you list those two as "easy to control on different shots and isn't too touchy (wind, OAT etc.)".

I'm not contradicting you (since I haven't thrown either) but it just goes against what I would assume from 13-14 speed maximum rim width drivers.

Thread derail warning!

About the FD I hope it takes a role of controlled straight shots at reasonable power to controlled turnover shots with more power. That's a slot I'd have use for.

The Quasar I have pretty much flies like a speed 13 OLF or a slightly beat speed 13 PD, and works in windy conditions too. It's easier to throw than the DD2 for example, I need to hit that pretty nicely if I want to get it to go anywhere, it really doesn't take well to powering down. The Quasar really is the first warp speed control driver I've ever seen.

VIP King on the other hand flies very neutrally for me, I can get it to go left, straight or right. I can power down on it without it becoming a meathook. It wasn't bad in the wind either, though nothing like the Quasar. It's less of a max D driver for me (though it is long) because it's so easy to control, both fade and turn are very subdued. It isn't a warp speeder either, about halfway between Wraith and Destroyer.

Can't wait for this disc been trying to fill the gap between Buzzz and PD for almost a year now. In my mind I'm picturing the Jackal as slightly faster Leo. Never thrown a River I've heard they throw a lot like faster Champ Leo. I think this is going to be Innova's/Discmania's version of the Stalker but just a lil less stable and hopefully a lot more glide.

Imo the qjls is the stop gap in this category. It flies like a longer buzzz in almost every way.
