Does anyone know a good driver for wind? I'm getting back into disk golf and need to buy a new set of drivers. I'm a lefty who uses primarily sidearm and can throw 200 feet with a ten-year-old Innova leopard. Can someone tell me what I should be looking for in a good driver?

Predator, best headwind disc!!!!!
Thanks guys. By the way, I meant a gazelle. And when I was practicing yesterday, I was closer to 300 than 200. I think I was throwing about 80-90 yards.
Another good choice would be an Eagle seeing they are a great head wind driver.
Another vote for eagle
strongly agree.
Eagle, teebird, and firebird. They all have different stability but will fit nicely into your hand.
Definite No on the Surge. a real headwind will turn this disc over, even new. I agree with the rest. Still, Predator fights the wind better than the others mentioned, maintaining its elevation throughout its flight path.
Pick up a Discraft Flash if you like the Leopard you will love the Flash!
Does no one here take into account what altitude people are playing at before recommending a "stable" driver? It makes a huge difference.

These are pretty sweet for sidearm.
