        I haven't met anyone other than me that throws a Ram. Got any extras?

          Nuke OS...it's impossible to get those to go understable...I have a big arm and at The Memorial I threw them flat into 20+ mph headwinds and they stayed overstable...insane!

            Well, I've got plenty of choices for drivers now, thanks!!! How about the best headwind midrange?? something that can still get some distance but do what it's supposed to...

                Gator. Won't ever turn over. It is a firebird that won't go as far. Great for headwinds.

                  Star 175g Rhyno for me. I can throw it just inside of 240'. Works great as a forehand roller too. I throw it about 10' shy of all the overstable mids I thrown. On hyzer with snap it will fade slowly but consistently, or flat and slow for a predictable finish. Great clutch putter in the wind, and I can flick it on anhyzer or slow hyzer for tough upshots. Probably one of three discs I would fear playing a round without. I have taken my overstable mids out of my bag and just kept the Rhyno.

                    I would agree with this for sure. If I'm playing in a hurricane, I would use the Nuke OS. I threw it at my local park in gusts over 40 mph with branches flying. It was the only time I saw that disc fly straight, and not hyzer out soon. I bought it to compensate for my poor overpowering forehand technique, I does that very well. It is more stable then anything I've thrown, including max weight (XCaliber, Ape, Firebird, XXX, Trident, Destroyers, Predator, Giant, Halo, King, Riot, Blitz, and any Innova Champ Glow I have). If I need to turn hard right I throw it forehand, hard left backhand, crazy skip thrown upside down backhand or forehand. Smashed it into more trees then I can count, it has not lost stability. I have had it over a year playing 2-3 times a week. I use it as a utility disc mostly, I tend to favor my Firebird for thumbers and XXX for forehands that need finesse though. But the OS will probably not leave my bag anytime soon.

                      I heard the mamba is great for headwinds.

                        I feel somewhat bad that you got an xtreme, I love them personally and I have 2 in the bag, but they are so beefy that they barely fly, it's more of a weird mid-range that wants to be a fairway driver. As for good mids, I'm a fan of the drone, it's very overstable with, what I feel, is a more comfortable rim than other overstable mids like the gator.

                          Also has more glide than the gator, won't just die and fall.

                            I just picked up a Lat. 64 Gold Line Villain to replace an Eco STAR Xcaliber that I lost. Very similar flight characteristics so it should be interesting to see how it compares. Haven't thrown it yet.

                                unless you're a power thrower, than I'd recommend the vulcan.
