Rated 5 out of 5 by doubleA-ron longest backhand driver for intermediate player
I've read that "understable" discs (like this one because it has some high-speed turn) are best for beginners to get max distance. I don't see why the same wouldn't be true for expert players (I'm not there yet, so I don't know). For max distance, I throw it flat, it turns one way, straightens out, then fades the other way. That way it has two phases of its flight where it's flat and has maximum lift.
If you throw it like mentioned above (in no wind) and it doesn't turn (no S-shaped profile), you probably need a disc with a lower speed rating. If it turns too much (no wind), you probably need a higher speed disc. A similar but higher-speed disc that I recommend is the Tern. It's my preferred disc for max-distance forehand shots.
