    anything under 250 definitely use a midrange... over that, everyone's taste and style varies, I would use a valk or viking..

            Uh yeah, and I did have some trouble keeping it on the fairway. A lot of that was probally operator error, but maybe I am not throwing the best dics for tha situation. I was throwing my TL, and it just did not seem to be working that great for me.

                Keep in mind that many drivers have to be thrown very hard to do what they are advertised to do. For example, Snap suggested a Valk or a Viking which are excellent choices if you have ~300+ feet of power. If not, the disc will act more stable and not be a straight as you were looking for.

                If you were having problems with discs that are normally straight for you it means you need some more practice on courses with tight fairways. Throwing a 200' straight shot in a field and a 200' straight shot on a narrow fairway are different. I tend not to throw as hard, which of course makes the disc more stable.

                  Seconded.

                  And unless your TL is 150g, it could be a bit too much disc for you, like Scott was saying.

                    I flip 150s too much, so I don't think my 162 TL is too much disc for me. I just was not sure it was the best disc for the situation. I know I need more practice throwing it in the narrows like Scott said, but I was open to trying a different disc that might be better for those situations. Thanks for all the good advice guys

                      Sorry, I meant too much disc in that situation. Full-power drives in the woods = trouble, and underpowered TL = more fade than you want.

                      I often throw a 150g Leopard when I need absolute control... and in the woods, you don't have to worry about the wind tossing those light discs around.

                          Oh sorry Adam missread that post. I get what you are saying now. I do have a couple of Leopords, so I think I will toss them in my bag and give them a whirl.

                          Thanks,

                            ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

                              Keep some old flippy 150 just for those tight ones. If you practice an 85% pull, chances are, you'll find what you're looking for there. I think it's a good approach to the problem.

                              If you have a place in the open to practice, try it on a calm day. Pick out a narrow target find the "control" pull that can hit it repeatedly. My first 150 R-Pro Boss is becoming beat-up useless flippy on a full pull. I'm having some trouble using it as a turnover because I'm too near full power and the aim suffers, but in the woods, and backing off, it's working out nicely for threading needles. It's giving me decent distance too, even with my wimpy arm.
