1 Nuke trying it out
3 Force Overstable to flippy
1 Z Predator Overstable and trustworthy. Slower than the Force
2-Z Avenger 1 new for stability other is 1st run for straight stable
2 Player's Cup Tracker Less stable than Avenger. straight/rollers/anhyzer
1 Z Flick All sidearm shots. Low profile rim keeps the flutter down
2 Drone Flx that is way overstable and Z CFR which has less stability
1 ESP Zone Slow low profile overstable putter
4 Z Buzzz All 1st or 2nd run. Stable to understable
5 Challenger 3 for throwing and 2 for putting

quit throwing it a few years ago. It wasn't doing what I wanted and was giving me strokes. Tracker and Buzzz work best for me. I do miss throwing the CE Leopard.

AO, do you have any recommendations on a good stable fairway driver made by Discraft? I have 2 Avenger SS's that I use for short straights/anny's 300' already.

I really like the Avenger. It has good stability but not as much as the Predator. The Tracker is nice too and usually they start off straight stable. Reaper is good but I don't know if you can find it anymore.

From what I've read, the Tracker is maybe a slower Avenger? If that's the case, I would definitely pick it up :)

They are both slower/control drivers. The Tracker just has less stability.

Seems to be a good disc. I just know my plastic and don't want to add another disc.

I wanna know more about the putters. For you what determines if it is going to be a driving putter or a putting putter?

I am also kind of shocked the XL didn't stay in your bag. To each there own though.

Yeah, the Player's Cup Trackers are really straight. I would say like the x Tracker but they don't beat in like the X. The regular run Z Trackers have a lot more stability. I think this years run is modified to what they are supposed to be like which is straight.

I have an old "beadless" which is super understable. I use that for long putts and when I'm trying to throw in up shots. I always carry a brand new D Challenger. I never throw it, only putt and jump putt with it.


The putters I drive with are a Crystal Challeger that is overstable. I have new D Challenger which is stable and controllable. If I lose it, they are easy to replace and same if I smash a tree. The 3rd driving putter is a D Challenger that is old and understable.

I've been looking into getting a Flick for some of my longer forehand. Right now I use a XXX (fariway to slow distance driver speed) for shorter drives and an XCal for long drives forehand. I guess the question is do you think the Flick would fall somewhere between the two?
