Default What's your favourite disc for a good long hyzerflip?

I recently lost my Gstar Sidewinder and Westside King, both of which I absolutely loved to flip. I'll replace them, but would like to try some others. The easiest discs for me to buy are Trilogy (retailer near me), so I'm looking for suggestions on which US discs are best. Thanks in advance!

I would put up the Relay and the Inertia from MVP. I thought I was making another mistake trying another glideless gyroturd but I was pleasantly surprised how easily these two molds hyzer flip and the distance I was getting with them. So yeah, Inertia and Relay.

Since you asked for trilogy, rivers are easy to hyzer flip. They go pretty far too for their speed. A lot of trilogy stuff is easy to flip really. Flight ratings...

Nice, the Inertia, in particular, looks like something I need to have.

Of course flight ratings, but different molds fly differently. I replaced my Gstar sidewinder with a similar weight champ version and it's not even the same disc, IMO. That's why I'm asking for personal experience.

I was more referring to trilogy's flight ratings being slightly exaggerated on certain molds but I got ya.

Nothing in Champ plastic flies like anything in star or Gstar plastic, in my experience. Even older beat in champ plastic has its own flight characteristics. If you loved the sidewinder, just replace it with another one.

I think the River may be a bit too slow if you're flipping the Sidewinder, the River may turn over thrown harder. In my experience the Lat 64 Striker may be a better fit, slightly US, about the same speed and flip up pretty well. A little faster is the Renegade, one of my favorite distance drivers when I was throwing Trilogy. Flips up nicely and will turn a bit as it flies but always hooks up and comes back, it's not THAT understable.

The Gold Line Fury (from Lat64) is pretty understable, especially after it seasons in. But it is a hyzerflip machine, as well. If GL plastic is too understable or not to your liking, the Opto plastic Fury is a bit more stable and durable (like Innova Champion plastic in those regards), and might suit you better.

Basically the Inertia is somewhere in the Valk-Sidewinder spectrum and ACTUALLY flies like the numbers suggest and the Relay is a Leopard.

Flow can be like a sidewinder/king hybird. Depends if you can find a little more US vs OS one.

I currently bag a inertia and virus (beat up inertia flight) sometimes an mvp orbital too which is super fast and flippy like the early run of kings.
