Closest shipping disc to 11x CAL TB

Anyone have suggestions on new discs that have similar flight characteristics and plastic feel to 11x CAL teebird? Haven't seen or thrown one of the totem TBs yet so maybe that is the answer but previous 12x were not. I've stuck to a small number of molds and manufacturers to this point. Any lat, Westside, legacy, MVP, etc disc that may fit the bill?

I feel like a river would serve your purpose pretty well, or wait for the westside stag. The river wot be like the 11x TB straight away but once it gets beaten in about half way it will be

A totem Teebird would be close a river would not be close at all. I've heard talk of the new champ Teebirds being flat and kind of stiff like the totems.

You can find some flat glow teebirds on discgolfvalues that I think are about as close as you get to that stable flight path. May be a little more OS from the gate, but break in well.

The Legacy Rival is the best Teebird I never had. I've never had a pre 12x champ Teebird but I've heard others make the comparison to earlier TB molds.

The Rival is a bit slower but similar flight patterns. It flies more like a 5.5-6, and the TB is a 7. So you lose a bit of distance but not much.

Yes the rival is definitely your best shot for a disc that isn't named TeeBird for sure. Btw it has a speed 8 rim.

Rival. Very close in flight and feel to my 11x CAL Teebird.

I am no TeeBird expert, but I have a totem TB that is pretty domey and is very overstable for me.

I found an older DX at PIAS (stamp has bird with spread wings) that was flat and had a great feeling plastic. That disc is great! Very straight and long. I'd love to find more that fly like that.

Nothing else in my bag compares: GL River, Amp, Trak, S-FD. All of those have a bit of OS to them, but this simple $5 DX TeeBird blows them all away.

I honestly notice no difference aside from the way the disc feels betweeny river and my 11x teebird
