Need a new super overstable fairway driver

I just found out my Champion Whippet X is rare and worth money, so I'm going to sell it. I'm looking for a replacement. I could get another Whippet X, but they only come in DX plastic, and I hate DX plastic. The Innova factory store has a Star Whippet X, but I wonder, will that be a collector like my Champion Whippet X is? Should I not throw it? Other option I found with similar flight paths are the Viper and the xXx. I've never throw either of those, can you tell me about them? The Viper has a little more distance and only comes in DX, unless again you buy from the Innova factory store where you can get a Star or Champion, and again, should I not throw them? The xXx comes in premium plastic, but has a little more distance and less fade.

I'm leaning towards the Star Whippet X, but I wanted opinions. Thanks!

I don't think the Star Whippets will become all that valuable. The factory store has put enough of them out there to satisfy demand. However, they may become increasingly hard to find.

Trident or Drone are pretty good options as well.

Stop worrying about collecting and what something is worth and just throw what you like. Star whippet womt be as os as the champ. Glow champ whippets are another option but again,not as os as the one youre selling.

Trident is close,get a heavy opto
Fd2 is close as well, get a heavy c line
Xxx ia faster than all discs mentioned above and is os but has more skip than a whippet
Same goes for a flat champ firebird which is slower than a xxx and more os than a whippet but still skips.

Also check out the gstar Pegasus. Spikes and holds on hard ground/downhill landings where other plastics slide/skip.

I'd like to keep the Champ Whippet. It is as close to a boomerang as you can get in a disc. You wouldn't believe the trouble I've gotten out of with the Champ Whippet. That said, I find it hard to throw a disc that is worth so much. It's a psychological thing. I can see subconsciously not using it and my game suffering. Might as well sell it to someone who appreciates it's value, I just want to play. Its a bummer I probably won't find anything nearly as over stable.

This really is a great option. With the bead, it should stay overstable for a long, long time.
