Default Dynamic Discs Witness Replacement

I've been playing for just over a year and my 'go to' fairway driver for forehands has been the Dynamic Discs Witness (8/6/-3/1). Love the disc! But when I lost my disc in a lake, I found they are out of production. I don't stockpile discs....and have no desire to...so buying a bunch of the ones that remain isn't the answer. I did buy one for now, but I'm looking for an 'in production' replacement. I'm not brand-centric - my bag is a mixed set of discs.

Requirements: Understable and flat top (I just can't throw a domed disc forehand). In the 7 to 9 speed range.

Ones I already have and tried, but aren't quite working for me:

Latitude 64 Diamond (8/6/-3/1): mainly a low weight disc, I did find two in 170g, but they are hard to find and aren't a good option. Also, they have a slight dome to them.

Discraft Xpress (8/5/-3/1): threw it well, but it too is OOP

Discraft Heat (9/6/-3/1): sometimes it flies well for me but not all the time...slight dome.

In the meantime, I am trying to learn to throw a domed disc forehand.

Other information: the main hole I used my Witness for is 214 feet. I would throw the disc about 10 feet left of the basket and end up within circle 1 - in front of, or to the right of the basket. I'm 60 years old, don't have huge arm speed, and am still working on my form/consistency/accuracy.

You might give the Sidewinder a look.

Sidewinder is a good call, there also exist some flatter Underworlds that you might like.

Sidewinder will be more OS than a witness out of the box. Will likely have similar results to the heat.

I have limited experience with the Mongoose, but that might be a good choice. Cheers

Sidewinder or even a Roadrunner ( slightly more understable).

Thanks everyone.....I'll get one of each of the suggestions: Sidewinder, Mongoose, Roadrunner and even check out the Underworld. Sidewinder does seem to be the #1 choice.

My 'prime' weight is 168. I do have a couple of 150's and don't throw them much since most of the courses I play are usually windy.

I am thinking an Archer or a glide might be what you are looking for, Glide is better for Forehand as that mold is almost an Impact but without the Hash-marks that the Impact had on the rim but in Z or now Big Z. However these discs will be slower then the Witness that is a a speed 9. In that case a Road Runner might be a good choice.

Don't forget the Infinite Discs Sphinx, which is allegedly a Valk top and Roadrunner bottom. The a Sphinx is a great mold in this arena.
