The Respecti is an overstable fairway driver that is a perfect choice for players wanting to throw strategic hooks, forehand shots, and overhand drives. This disc is not a disc for beginners. The Respecti was the first disc that the Finnish manufacturing Prodiscus ever produced.
The Shock is a thin fairway driver that is supposed to be more stable than the Volt, and offer excellent glide. The Shock turns less, but has a more than average fading throw than the aforementioned Volt. For power throwers that find the Volt flippy, the stability the Shock offers is why this is a popular disc. The Shock is available in MVP’s quality Neutron plastic, which is a hard smooth plastic that glides well. Like all MVP discs, the Shock uses GYRO Technology to maximize control and forward glide.
The Stag is an overstable fairway driver in the Westside line. This disc is an excellent choice for throwing controlled fairway drives for both backhand and forehand shots. The Stag may not be the fastest disc (speed 8) out there, but it does have a very comfortable, moderate rim of 1.9cm. This disc is available in Tournament and VIP plastics.
The MVP is a straight flying disc which tends to be slightly overstable. Depending on the amount of snap when thrown, the Volt can have a decent fade at the end of its flight. The GYRO Technology in this disc makes it the goto for long, tight fairway shots. The disc is also designed to sit down where it lands, which remedies the unpredictability which typically happens after a disc has landed. This disc is a great addition to any disc golfers bag and is excellent for beginner and intermediate players.

Looking for a straight flying, accurate fairway driver? The Discraft XL is a stable distance driver you may want to consider. In Pro-D plastic, Discraft gives the XL a stability rating of 0, meaning the overall flight path is going to be straight. In this plastic, the XL lowest weight comes in at 150 grams. In other plastics it will have a slight fade more than it will turn (Ever so slightly.)
The XL is one of Discraft more popular discs. This disc is mostly used by pros but is also a good driver choice for beginners. This disc is available in all the popular plastics Discraft makes: Pro-D, Elite-X, Elite-Z, ESP, and the soft flexible FLX.
One interesting thing about the XL is that the stability varies in almost every plastic type. While the stability in Pro D is (0), it is 1 in Elite X, 1.2 in FLX, and 1.5 in EXP and Elite Z.
If you want a more colorful disc, consider buying the XL dyed in Elite X and Elite Z plastics.
