I picked up a couple glow champion Eagles (hard to find) but its just like a banshee for now - its really OS - exactly what I was looking for

Otherwise an MVP Resistor is a great option for OS fairway (that's not a firebird OS)

I love me some Sparks. The gold lines are Banshee like IMO while the first run opto is a bit more stable, more firebird like

Second last two posts. I personally use a MVP Resistor in this slot, though it definitely doesn't feel like a Banshee. I have also thrown a friends Spark a few times and it more like a Banshee IMHO.

Not to derail the thread, but I'd love to know where Tridents are available at the moment!

Tridents were my original love, and once they went OOP, Banshees took their place for awhile. The Banshee rim bothered me more and more though, so I've now switched to the Resistor, and it's 100% perfect for me. The Spark I tried (post-Feldberg I assume) wasn't OS enough.

EDIT: It was PDGA approved in January of '98 (had to double check to make sure I was right)
The Rest was about how modern Banshee are like a 5 on the last flight number. Some are so beefy that only big arm players can use the disc without it just doing a C shape or backward C shape Shot depending on what hand he is throwing the disc. The Banshee had/still has? the normal domed DX Banshee height which is the not high dome like the modern Champion but rather like the Dome on a Star Shark so not a ton of dome but not flat either.

Infinite has the latest run of metallic Opto Tridents with a toothpaste stamp: over 100 available, all 177g.

Tridents are the bomb diggety! I love the Retro Trident: got a small stack when they were released, and #1 is still kicking headwind butt almost 2 years later.
