I just got an order of new discs in the mail today. I just got back from theowing them in the field.

1) 175 gram XT Whale

This is my go-to putter so I needed another for more reps during practice. Very straight with a small fade.

2) 171 gram star Lion

Very straight with fade. Throw a little higher than normal, and you'll get even more fade. It felt great in my hand, and those who say it feels like a mako 3 are absolutely correct. I need more reps with it, but I'm definitely thinking it will stay in my bag.

3) 173 gram DX Stingray

I wasn't really a fan of how this disc felt in my hand, but when I threw it in the field, I was highly impressed. Lots of glide with minimal effort. It also held an anhyzer well, which isn't surprising, since it's an understable disc. It's a keeper for sure!

Stalkers are nice straight shooters.
Magnet user currently Jawbreaker plastic and Proline Titanic's as the hot weather replacement for the Jawbreaker plastic disc mold flies the same just a bit slower due to the height. Stocked up on Stalkers because they were going oop I thought so but I have since seen the disc in stock online from most sellers in any weight below 175 grams. I also Use Impact but that is fairway/midrange hybrid basically if not for woods tunnel shots the Impact is then used for the Too short for my midrange shot Too long for a true fairway driver.

Both. One is a hybrid fairway/midrange, Impact and the other Stalker, is a true fairway replacement for the XL as the XL is only sold in Pro D. The Stalker in Z is better then the XL in Z. The XL in ESP assuming lower dome is almost the same as a Stalker, high dome XL in ESP fly odd.

Impact mold flies best in the 170-172 and the 173-174 weight ranges as the others lighter are too flippy and the other heavier ones are lacking glide.

I grabbed these from a PIAS in Kansas a few weeks ago. The JLS feel like leopards. They have the same tooling too... Hmmmm... The orange 1.27 glides for a minute.
Someone left a Scale behind. Too easy for $5.

I was needing a XL replacement as they were only in Pro D and Pro D has been a bit soft for a really long time since sometime in 2005 the plastic changed. For the better too as in winter the Pro D plastic does not shatter like the old stiff stuff.

I see you like Prodigy. Just curious, do you use any of the F series?

I have gotten the New Titanic and it is Yellow with Royal Blue stamp as the colors. I was able to almost fix the Titanic in Royal Blue and gold Stamp though now with the heat treatment then freezer and today in the freezer after I put weight on the spot that is micro concave however the disc is more flexible then my other Titanic's, fine since the others are a bit bouncy in the basket but not overly bouncy being they are Proline plastic. The Blue Titanic now has a micro concave spot where before it was more noticeable.
