163 ESP Nuke.
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.

148 Bliz Katana. Gets squirrly though and only used on wide open distance shots. 167-68 Pro Destroyer is more accurate and not far behind.

Bliz Wraith 136g. The only disc I've managed to throw over 125m (410ft). A true useless piece of shit :D , needs good tailwind and a perfect line.

Tough to say what my longest disc is. One day it could be one thing and another day something else. On courses, I've had a few discs that just killed in distance. I'll list them.

171 ESP Surge. Domey and just doesn't come down.
174 Z Surge w/ thumb grip. Freak of a disc. Astoundingly long.
174 CFR Augusta Wraith. Got a little beat and lost the low speed fade. Straight distance.
173 Champ Boss. Nothing even that special of a disc, but still keeps up with anything I throw.

Now, on a practice field I'd probably look for something a little lighter for sheer distance (sacrifice some control). Blizzards fit this category. Super long. I also have a flippy ESP Nuke that can't really be touched in distance. Accuracy isn't very good though.

My favorite line for max distance is taking a somewhat stable disc, forcing it over a bit and letting it fade back at the end. I don't do well with hyzerflips.

My longest disc in my bag, accuracy not being taken into consideration, is a 165 blizz DD2. I've hit 450' with this bad boy, but hell if I know where it's going or if I could put it out there more than 2/10 times that far. I actually don't like throwing this disc that much, but I keep it in the bag because I have to learn how to throw the big rimmed stuff eventually.

In terms of consistency and accuracy, it's probably my worn 172 pPD. I've hit 410' with it, but most of the time I'm throwing it 380-390' with pretty good accuracy.

I have a 158 gram DD2 blizzard. It's the flippiest disc I own. I hate it.

My beat Pro Wraith is easily my longest disc. I am maxing out at around 400 feet with it.

The first disc I threw over 500' was a champ Boss at 175g. When I switched over to all discraft I could throw distance lines with 174g X nukes that were clearing 650'. Now that I throw a mixed bag I don't know what I throw the farthest with, haven't played with enough of the new companies, molds, or technology.

Longest but hard to control - Pro Katana

Consistently Long and better control - Destroyer

Still gets out there - Star Valk. I broke in a Star Valk over the summer just practicing slight hyzer flips with it and now that thing just keeps going. The turn is late and then a light fade at the end and the good 'ol valk lands wayyyyyyyyyyy out there.

When it breaks in more.....it may end up being my longest. - Opto Flow
