BT plastic is more durable than you're giving it credit for here. I've had the same 2 harps (BT Hard (OS) & BT Medium (extra OS)) in my bag for the better part of 2 years, and neither is radically...

Ditto TL3/TL, or even DX teebird if you're into that kind of thing. I find that star/champ Teebirds stay too stable, even when they beat in, but a slightly beat in DX or TL/3 are perfect, and not...

For many players, an Avenger SS or Sidewinder are going to be the best max-D driver you can buy, and will make the game way more fun.

My take would be: stick to your go to discs, and pull everything else out of the bag. Of the stuff you've marked as go to (all great choices!), I'd look at Champ or Star versions of the Teebird, TL3,...

The sextons aren't flat a la FAF firebirds, they're just not super domey as some of the more recent runs of stock stamp champs have been. They're consistently mellow domed and very workable in...

Don't totally disagree with you, but the sextons do at least seem to be pretty consistent, so you know what you're getting more or less. Stock stamps can be hit or miss in terms of dome, so you have...

Based on what I've thrown and heard my best guess is (most OS to least OS):
16-15-19-20-18-17

With the caveat that I don't own them all.

There was a more recent run in 2018-2019 (i think?) that are super flat, opaque, and stiff as well. Have a few and they're in the same neighborhood as the 2010-2012 FAF runs.

Seriously. Business must be booming right now, happy for them for that. They're constantly sold out and pricy now. Love my octothorpe and wouldn't take any other bag over it, but $450 is not cheap.

You can stick with DX/KC pro for anything mids speed or lower, it wears in surprisingly slowly, especially with the stiffer dx in recent runs of Rocs, and the good baseline plastics of Trilogy/etc.....
