Not the unLace for sure. I'm a flicker and twice now I have had my disc do 360's in the air. Super flippy disc. I bet the ascent Woundnt be to bad. Kind of teebird like. I think the oLace would be to overstable to get what you want.

Honestly, I have had best success with the Ascent. I know it is not super high speed but all their Max D drivers tend to turn really fast when thrown OH (Over Head aka Hammer Style). I am primarily a Vibram thrower but I still have other discs I use for all my OH shots. Give it time and it will change.

I throw Vibram as well, but I throw other companies when I need to do OH shots. This might change, because Vibram is coming out with a new disc, but probably not in time for the Birdie Bash.

I played in a Birdie Bash last year and threw the Trak primarily overhand with good success. The Trak is like a super fresh Champ Teebird, and the Ascent is more like a worn in Eagle in terms of how they fly through the air when thrown thumber. If you're tomahawking you'll want the Ascent for sure.

One thing that's nice about the Ascent is that it's fairway driver that dials down with respect to speed and distance very nicely. It's probably not going to be your max-distance OH disc, but it'll cover a range of OH utility shots that will make it a nice disc to have in your bag. If you're playing a birdie bash at a shorter course, then it might be a winner!
