Welcome to the 21st century. Late is better than never.
Don't buy a bunch of stuff. Try a bunch of stuff. Once you know what shows the best promise then buy a bunch of stuff.
Unless you live in isolation there are lots of players who have lots of high speed drivers. Borrow some for a try out.
It took me a year of practicing with wide rimmed drivers before I figured them out and made them part of my tournament bag. Now a Nuke is my primary driver. Here is what worked for me. I need to throw a Nuke with precision, especially the nose angle on release. If the nose angle is off the disc is still going to fly far and fast but not accurately. So throw flat, smooth, balanced and clean-just like you should do with any other driver.
A high speed driver does not hide form issues, it accentuates errors. So just like an understable disc, it will teach you clean form which is a benefit to your overall game. Don't just carry it around. Use it. Practice it. Learn it. Then win with it.
