The wind has really been blowing for the last three months here in Dallas. It is a real factor in every round played these days.
I have enough power that I can flip a max weight DX Teerbird into any significant wind, even with a lot of heyser and a lot of spin. The Eagle is worse.
I tried a Champ Teebird and Star Teebird and hated both. These fly like manhole covers for me.
I got a D reaper, a DX Banshee, and an X Predator.
All are good discs, and I would not hesitate to recommend any of these for headwind driving. I have throw good shots with each.
The Banshee is very consistent, and will not be flipped if throw with a little heyser, no matter how hard the wind is blowing. It will flip if thrown flat into a stiff wind. Not a very long disc but consistent and cheap.
The D Reaper is a little less overstable than the Banshee, and is therefore a little more unpredictable into the wind. It also has better glide than the Banshee and is longer.
The X Predator is the best of the bunch, I think. I really like this disc. The wing is like an extended Teebird wing and is more similar to a Cyclone "type" rim (read that not a huge wing), and feels great in my hand. The plastic is also closest to Cyclone plastic. The flight is generally flat if thrown flat with a little headwind. Throw iwth a little heyser into a hard headwind, make sure to keep the nose down. It is hard to flip at all, really (it can be done). It flies dead straight and fast to the end and just heysers out (kind of like a DX Teebird downwind). There is very little slow glide at the end but this disc is fast and pretty dang long!!! I have ripped seriously straight BOMBs with this thing. The heyser at the end is brief and does not require much room.
It also good for long sharp heysers and has good enough speed to do it with some distance.
Mine is black and 174 grams. I would like to get a 170 gram and try that to see if it would flip up a tad bit easier. a 169 gram to 170 gram might make one heck of a driver in general.
