P PD shouldn't be the best distance driver even for a sub 380' thrower but it does increase D nicely when s-curved and especially if it is light and broken in. Still i'd get a Flow that is suited for the thrower and when there's more power VIP King or Zero G Quasar in light weights. Ultralight.
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.

Easy distance is a weighted question. You need light discs but how light depends on the speed of the disc which depends on the available power and spin. 130s Quasars for 300'+ crowd and 150 or King VIP high PLH tall dome for 400' crowd. For under 300' crowd Leopard, FD or River.

Haven't seen bad premium Legendas yet. This is my choice as well. I seem to get similar distances with S-PD on a good throw but Legenda requires less effort. I'm pretty accurate with premium legenda compared to other wide rimmed discs as well.
Got some interesting lines with a new basic Legenda as well. Too bad I lost it after a slip.

Premium Legenda of mine with flash is beefier than Boss of similar weight thus fading out earlier and shorter. More dependable in the wind.

During golf rounds I'm currently throw Destroyers for my long drives. I've had longer throws with domey Nukes and Pro Katanas though.

Currently it's still the DD2. I could get farther with the LEGENDa, I could probably shape lines somewhat better with the Sword, and I could get a high PLH Quasar to handle headwind distance, but currently I can get all of those out of a DD2 in different plastics/runs. P-DD2 for distance, S and orange ES-DD2 for line shaping and mint green ES-DD2 for headwind. I've thought about leaving them be, because there are better distance discs for each of those categories, but then I'd have to replace it with at least two, probably three molds and start to hunt for good ones of those...

I'll switch when I run out of DD2's (7 P-Lines and 9 S/ES-Lines left though, only lost one so far in two years).

how I understood correctly that there's bubble quasars? How reliable are they in 150 weight? IE will they fade, or do they have a 50/50 risk of turning over and staying that way.

For normal shots, 175 Icon Rampage. For shots where a bit more flip can be done, a 170 Protege Rampage
