I'm thinking of switching to a slower speed driver, and was wondering what other players like to use.

Right now my lowest speed driver is a sidewinder, i'm thinking of going to either an eagle or a tbird. I tend to stick with Innova Star plastic, but do throw Discraft ESP plastic.

sidewinder 168g-171g,enough speed to get to the basket

My slow speed driver is a Glow Z Stalker

I heard stalkers are pretty good fairway drivers.  Just ordered one a few days ago.  So I guess will see.


Teebird, and TL

They are.  I hated it at first until I started throwing them like a midrange, and then it felt/flew right. 

Slow Speed Meat Hook !!!

I agree with the sidewinder...it has been a very reliable disc for me and I think the speed is a 9 on that disc.

Does anyone remember a disk called The Tracer? I think it was from Discraft.

I could do just about everything with that disc. Couldn't get the extreme distance though but totally controllable.

Anyways that one as well as The TL and The Monarch.

i'm in agreement with those who said TL

again.. same here as well.  I made a comment on another post.. TL is my butter.

Might sound crazy, but switch over the Buzzz.  I throw rocs, zones and a stratus for mids and don't carry a Buzzz, but I throw similar ranges as you and the Buzzz will get you that extra 10-30 ft  you're looking for. 

Firebird would also do the trick if you've got the room for its fade.
