A Flat E Spirit is probably the most stable driver I've ever thrown.

Steve, what about Predators?  I bet they're straighter in the high speed portion of their flight than you're looking for.  A Z Pred may be what you're after. 

Other than that, there's the Max, the RexX (still not stable enough for you), the new XCaliber, and the Discraft Force.  I've not thrown any of those new molds because they're too stable for me, but may work for you.

Try Aerobie, I hear they make good discs....   ::)

Heck an upside down pie tin may fly better than a Firebird.

Steve, I know you throw a lot of turnovers.  Why don't you throw hyzer flips?  You could throw less stable plastic (like the Rex), and bomb them I bet.  They would also fly on a lot straighter lines.

The last two days have been perfect examples of why the firebird exists.  The Wind.

A Star Max may be a very good disc for you to try. It is at least as stable as a firebird, but much faster. You will get more distance.

However, you mentioned that you are trying to improve your game, which does not necessarily translate to more distance. If you want to improve your ability to throw any shot, then you would benefit greatly from learning to throw more understable discs on any line. This will force you to develope touch, and will improve your general accuracy tremendously. Also, if improving your game equals scoring better, then becoming a more consistant putter is probably the most important thing. This one guy has won 12 world championships, and I would guess that is because he putts better than anyone else, and is probably more accurate, too. His signature shot is a hyzer-flip up with a worn-in stable driver.

i think dresser has got plenty of touch, as in probably a little too much touch.  he can work those ce firebirds pretty well.

Do you think Steve could throw a new dx valkyrie 400'?  Without rolling it?  I've never seen him throw anything accept a firebird, a buzz, or a wizard.  Steve doesn't seem to throw a lot of hyzer flips, and I think that shot with an understable disc could  benefit his game immensely.

oh probably. i think steve just knows his firebirds really well.

if he can throw a buzz effectively apparently he has touch.  he's definitely got some power.  i might recommend a star starfire to him; they're WAY more stable than the pro starfires, have good glide and seem less squirrelly than wraiths and destroyers.  a buddy of mine w/ a big arm bombs the heck out of these.

I won a sweet Predator in Tulsa for CTP. Very stable. Anyone who sees me is very welcome to borrow/throw it.
