The best windy DISTANCE Driver

Postby SoCal19 » Thu Mar 01, 2007 12:35 pm

Just wanted to know what you guys thought was the best disc for throwing for distance into a headwind and with crosswinds.

I switched from a Star Tee-Rex to an ESP Predator.

I use a Predator as well, but they just plain and simple don't go that far. If I need to reach a basket that's 380ft away into a head wind, odds are I'm not going to get there with a Pred. I'm thinking the Teerex X is going to be the answer.

odds are most people can't throw 380 accurately into a headwind. Play short take your par and move along. These aren't the droids you are looking for.

Mike hole #2 at Eastern, strong headwind. What's the best disc to throw if you want to get with in 50 ft of the basket?

I'll throw a spirit.

But like I said, good luck trying to get that kind of D in a headwind.

E-Spirit is a good call. Fast and overstable.

Throw the predator flat or with a bit of anhyzer. But like Mike said good luck getting 380 into a stiff head wind. Teerex, Wraith, Surge, or Pulse are not good into stiff winds. I don't know of any high speed discs that are. Spirit-Firebird-Predator is what I would recommend and know will hold a line for sure.

teerex

I throw my teerex into headwinds on a hyzerflip. It pans to the right but almost always comes back.

A 175g proto star, don't know if they are any different than regular star.
