Default What flies most like a Predator?

I throw a lot of FHs and bag a XXX and PD. Looking for something between the two. I have always liked the flight of the predator but not the feel for FH. What disc flies closest to the Predator? Overstable but stays straighter longer and still has a hard fade? I am throwing the Doombird now, which has this flight pattern, but doesn't seem to glide like a predator.

Flat top ESP Avengers are pretty meat hooky. DGA Tsunami is also a retooled clone.

And both are unfortunately OOP now. The Predator is actually the retooled one. The Tsunami is the old mold predator.

I knew they killed my Avenger but I didn't know they killed the Tsunami. I also didn't realize the tooling order. Thanks for the correction.

A beefy Thunderbird isn't hard to find & they do fly a lot like Predators but feel way better. I have both the Thunderbird & FD3 in my bag because they are both OS but the glide is way different. FD3's (like you say) keep low.
