11X CAL TeeBirds are one of the most desirable discs out there. I think a big part of this is because there aren't many other options that are identical to the majority of throwers. So...What does your 11X CAL fly like when YOU throw it? What does it feel like? That will help make suggestions more appropriate. Some of these are just silly.

Any lat, Westside, legacy, MVP, etc disc that may fit the bill?

if you want something with the same amount of stability and flight type a beat in banshee is very close to my 11x CAL Tbird but it's not going to have the same glide a tbird has and will be a bit shorter. my suggestion would be getting a S-PD or getting a predator and beating it in a crap ton.
yeah i think people forget that most 11x teebirds have been thrown and seasoned quite a bit. what they are throwing now is nothing like a fresh one... so the suggestions for fresh rivers and fds start happening, not taking into account 5 years from now those rivers and fds will fly nothing like their 5+ year old teebird

If the Cpd hooked too much, then the S PD could be your slightly longer disc...

I would also say a Stalker flies similar to a TB, I carry mine for dead straight shots.

It all comes down to what you want the disc to do. Do you want it to be a strong left turning disc, a slight left turning disc, a straight disc, or a slight right turning disc?

I think their are different types of 11x TB's out there doing different things based on their seasoning. Jrawk had it right, just because it says KC PRO 11X does not mean it will fly like an original new disc.

I personally like my Rival for more slight left turning duties and strong hyzer shots where I need the disc to travel straight LSS and fade HSS. I use my stalker for more of a straight LSS to slight or no fade HSS. You can also use a heavy GL River 175+ to be similar in flight as well if you like more glide.

But nothing will be exactly the same.

11x = 11 time World Champ stamp (Climo)

CAL = tooling on the back is CAL for California, as opposed to CA

TB = Teebird

Only the best disc ever made

So I got my hands on a first run Legacy Rival today. Before throwing it, I was impressed by the plastic. A little gummy and good grip. Edge had a little more flashing than I would expect but not too bad. Throws were in a 10-15 mph wind from multiple angles). Definitely does not have stability of a 11x CAL or even 12x champ TB, but very easy to throw for accurate drives and the D was nice. This will fill a spot in my bag of a slightly beat TB(which I needed).

Based on what was in the store, all of the Rivals were very flat so not sure if there are domier more stable ones out there.

What was the weight and color?

I had a 171g Blue and it was closer to a Eagle then a TB and was very similar to what you describe.

I traded it in and got a 174g Peach and it was closer to a TB.
