The Avengers I've had in different plastics have all been pretty different discs. The Z was a great moderatly overstable driver, the X was a nice distance driver with a bit of turn and the D flew...

Carrying a Teebird along with another control driver is probably overlap, but it's pretty common. Most use the Teebird for long, straight shots and the other fairway driver for line shaping. The...

That's what I'd go for...not that I have that shot, either.

Depending on how much room you have to the left a pretty flat to very slightly anhyzer shot with a pretty overstable disc might work,...

Another thing to consider is with slower discs you also need more height. Throwing high without a stall out can take a bit of practice, even if you're half hitting. I don't know if this is actually...

What rules? Unsanctioned tournaments aren't required to use PDGA rule so it's up to the TD on what's allowed. If you don't like the TD's rules, then don't play. Isn't that exactly what you'd tell...

I don't really see it as a hole in their line up. Sure if you think of it as a bingo board with an empty square at "speed 7, understable" it looks like a hole, but in practice that square isn't...

There has been a ton of great advice in this thread. I'll just reiterate that a vast majority of players never develop "snap." Many will claim it, but unless you're crushing fairway drivers close...

I've also seen new players wading around in ponds because their Teebird or Buzzz didn't flex like it "always does." ;)

But it doesn't show that those athletes, in general will do the same thing or that it's impossible to do if you don't already excel at other sports. The logic behind it is terrible.

Don't forget with very overstable discs like the Banshee you can throw them on an anhyzer and get a big 'S' that fades hard (flex shot). Your Teebird or Buzz won't do that.

I'd still get someone else to confirm it. I'm like 90% sure that's what happened, though. You can probably PM Chuck for the official story.

IIRC, they revoked the approval after some grace period. The reasons were for the PDGA to make more explicit rules regarding the shape of the disc. It wasn't because it gave an unfair advantage,...

I'm assuming they're "Pro Line" Leopards. If they are it's just an early blend of Champ from before they started calling it "Champion." I remember finding a lot of 150 class Pro Line Leopards out...

Teebirds for straight shots and your favorite of the others for shaping lines. I throw Gazelles because I have them, but if I were starting over I'd go with the Eagle X.

The Speed Demon came out and was super overstable, so they released the Spirit...which turned out to be...

Plus, not only will they only be kind of similar, but they'll beat up to be less and less like the disc you want.

FWIW, I've found that it's easiest to feel and replicate a good hit with a mid. Putters and fairway drivers aren't bad, but for some reason I get more good hits with a mid than any other disc type.
