Flat and Straight Drivers you would Recommend
July 15, 2012 03:37PM
Hello there.

When it comes to drivers, I dont seem to have much choice.

Im not sure if its from a lack if power or spin; (At most I can throw about 275 feet) but understable discs are often impossible for me to use. Many seem to rotate something like 90 degrees after I release them, so they dont go very far. (obviously)

Ive always had to go with the XL, and I seem to be able to use the Orc. Are there any more drivers I can trust to stay completely flat?

you need more snap/spin on your release. Throw lighter weight disc also try blizzard disc.

I had the exact same problem as u when i started. I would get a beast or a monarch. I threw those very well in the beginning. Also get a roadrunner. Since it's understable it will hang that straight line longer. dont use anything above a 10 speed right now and throw for technique not strength and distance right now. A good overstable one is a teebird and an SL. They are like an Orc

I would say a Latitude 64 River. Dead straight flyer.

The next disc that will go into my bag is the FD Jackal by Discmania.

-It's like a beat in TL right from the start. This means straight lines.

-It's so comfortable in my hand.

I've thrown a few and they are amazing.

The Latitude 64 Vision is a straight flyer with very little fade.

TL and JLS straight with little fade when thrown flat.

Leopard, Polaris,Roadrunner, Sidewinder, Eagle in DX, Cobra. All these do not take much to fly straight, if too much snap they turn over, but 275 power should not be too much. These all have narrow rims for smaller hands and/or comfort. Orion LS and TL's are other choices. Sometimes a beaten in version of a more overstable disc will work fine also. All I can suggest is try as many as possible from friends who will let you throw them.

P.S. BTW you should not put too much of your time into drivers at the early stage of disc golf. Concentrate more on putters and mids. A good mid range will serve you well as well as a good putter. Throw them first and then take your drivers to the practice field later. Unless you are playing very long courses your scores will improve with better putter and mid range play more rapidly than just chunking drivers.

One more thing if your understable drivers are rotating 90 degrees. I assume that you mean you "turn" them over. If so, then you need to learn a hyzer-flip shot. I will not go into great detail but there are numerous sites to explain it. If on the other hand you mean it "hyzer" outs quickly than you do not have enough snap for that particular disc.
