Speed 11 drivers are some of the best discs for intermediate and advanced players alike. While these distance drivers are fast, they aren’t too hard for the average player to control. Most speed 11 drivers have rims between 2.0 and 2.2 cm. We offer 18 different drivers that we rate as “speed 11.” Several of them are highly regarded and rated as “must haves.” So which of these are the best? Which high speed driver should you buy?
According to our reviewers, here are the best speed 11 drivers:
Latitude 64 Flow – The Flow is a relatively straight driver with incredible glide. It offers some turn, moderate fade. From 5 different votes, the Flow has a rating of 4.8.
A GL Flow became my go to driver for anything that was dead straight and 350′-390′ just more than a year ago, and I’m still throwing that same exact disc for that toss. It’s glidey with predictable turn, and just a straight finish with a very, very slight hook just before touching down. It’s my go to distance driver and has opened a whole new combination of distance and accuracy that I’ve not before known.[/box]
Innova Wraith – The Wraith is perhaps the most popular speed 11 driver ever. Players often compare the way other drivers fly with the Wraith. This overstable driver has some turn, a nice strong fade, and is highly recommended for forehand/sidearm throws. From 11 votes, this disc has a rating of 4.64.
If you have mastered basic form on sidearm and find yourself looking for a faster disc I highly recommend the wraith. It has been my go to controlled sidearm driver since release and no matter what “new and shiny” disc comes out I keep going back to the wraith. Good sidearm and backhand so it is versatile.[/box]
Innova Krait – The Krait is has a flight path that is very similar to the Flow, but this disc is taller and has a deeper rim. This is one of Innova’s newest distance drivers, and highly regarded. From 8 votes it has a rating of 4.63.
My favorite driver, bar none. I carry five in the bag at all times. 2 champ (one metal flake), 1 star (Halloweenova special) and 2 Blizzards (158 and 159). I used to think nothing could be better than a Wraith..until the Krait came along. First throw and I was hooked.
It has the same turn as a Wraith, but with quite a bit less fade on the tail end of the flight. Thrown flat and hard and it will hold a straight line for a very long time (I’ve had a few go out past 320 dead straight) with a bit of fade at the end. It holds a hyzer to perfection, and I recorded my first forehand ace with this disc.[/box]
Discraft Surge SS – This less overstable version of the Surge has some very good reviews. Discraft gives the SS a stability score of 1.6, slightly less stable than the regular surge. From seven votes by reviewers on our website, the Surge has a rating of 4.57.
Surge SS is BUTTAH! Sidearm distance with it about 300-350 every time. So predictable when it comes to turn and fade, I don’t need to watch the flight to know where it will land. Perfect companion to bridge the gap between my flat dx surge and pop top z surge.
Great beginner driver![/box]
Discraft Surge – This maximum distance driver offers incredible glide and a nice consistent fade. Discraft gives this disc a stability rating of 1.7. From 11 different votes, the surge has a rating of 4.57.
Discraft makes some great over-stable discs that are still beginner friendly. This reminds me of the Crush with a bit less turn. Very much like a rookie Nuke. Great all-around disc for newer players looking for something that can take a bit more power for drives while still resisting turnover. RHBH gildes like a shorter but more accurate Nuke. Forearm throwers will like the controlled turn with less power, and smooth S-curve lines with a touch more snap. Great for doglegs and fairway shots.[/box]
