Default Star SL Replacement Ideas??

I know there are a couple older threads dedicated to this already, but they are 1+ years old. I was wondering if there is anything that is a good replacement for the pre 2011 SLs. It is my go to driver and I almost lost it this weekend. Some said Valks, Vikings, Northman, etc. I wanna know if these are still the standard replacement, or are there any newer discs that might fit the bill better in a Star-esque plastic?

How does your SL fly for you now?

IMO northmans have less stability unless they have changed that mold too. more like a -2/1

Its pretty beat in. I throw RHFH with it. When thrown flat, I get a pretty good S Curve, with it usually finishing neutral to stable. On an anhyzer, it will hold it until the very end then flatten out.

How about a current production Star SL? Why would you think those don't fly like your older one? Or are you looking for an out of the box disc that flies like a beat in Star SL?

They discontinued the SL. Something with a mold breaking in 2011 and the replacement wasn't the same so they did away with it altogether. I can handle beating one in, that doesn't bother me. It is just an integral part of my game and losing it would mess me up. I know there won't be a perfect replacement, but something close.

That's funny, I have seen star sl's in gggt and many other stores. They aren't popular at all so there are still plenty out there.

MVP Tesla is a little more like a true starfire but once seasoned will have a little turn to it and always reliable fade. An MVP inertia is very similar to a valk/SL. Neutron plastic would be the star-like blend.

3ology discs I've thrown which might work are striker, flow, and saint.

is the founder of a group called Team Trilogy, and has thrown Latitude 64 for years and years, so you should feel comfortable taking his advice!
