However, I have figured it out and now carry 5-6 in my bag.

Pinnacle: hyzer flip and turnovers
Icon: straight, roller, and long s-curves
Sparkle/First Run: long holding hyzers, flex shots, and forehand

Though, if the inconsistency of the mold cannot be segregated between plastics or runs, than I see why that is a huge problem.
I like this theroy. Inactually stopped saying "inconsistent" and started just calling each discs differences it's own unique nuance. I know it still is the same thing but I agree with having one mokd in different stages of wear and with it's own characteristics just for the consistency of feel.

Anything trilogy I have thrown. Destroyers as well but that is because they have to run so many.

I tend to find that understable, fast drivers are the least consistent. You'll get the ones that fly how they're supposed to. However, you'll get others that fly significantly more overstable than the numbers would indicate.

It isn't like you're going to get freakishly understable Nuke OSs. Those things are very consistently overstable.

Nuke SSs on the other hand can be beefy at times. I've thrown a couple that were relatively glideless with a big, dumpy fade.

As to what mold is the most inconsistent, just insert any driver name here ________. They all have variances, and will as long as the earth provides temperature differences during the cooling process. For me personally and the discs I own and use, the Waves I have are totally inconsistent.
I've only thrown that 1 Renegade, so I have no basis for comparison. It sure as hell didn't wow me though.

MSG me if you want to trade for the really flippy Sheriff. You might actually dig it. Its a biofuzion white disc that for whatever reason flips all over the place. It isn't even in bad condition. I have zero use for the thing.

Katana is MASSIVELY inconsistent. I'll agree there. Even if you stick to the same plastic. Some are flippy and bomb. Others are really beefy and glideless.

Impossible to know what you're getting when you buy a Katana. Its one of those discs you almost have to throw first before you know you want to buy it or not. Frustrating disc at times.

I've only owned/thrown 1 D3, so I can't really comment on the inconsistency there. Mine flies like a G* Shryke. Flippy and glidey.

Thanks, but I already ordered some discs, and I'm trying to disc down anyway. So pay that Sheriff forward and get a kid into the game.

And if you get a chance to try another Renegade, give it a shot. It's not a bad mold, at least for amateur noodle arms. It'll be US for someone in your armspeed range, of course...

Katanas are the least consistent disc I have ever thrown.

That is the reason I use only the Champion models I got in 2014, as the others were all over the board and some were high dome others were low dome from the same run. The Champion models of Destroyers are way more consistent then the Star or Pro model as the disc is made in less numbers as they are less popular so naturally the discs are going to be more constant.

You can thank Paul McBeth for the Pro and Star models being popular, he first used those in the 2000's when he first was a pro with apparel team, Uh one that now makes disc too. Got such big distance with the disc that Innova players started using those discs too.

I also vote Katana, because the variation makes them 100% different discs. And the OS ones are absolute junk IMO. It's one thing if a disc flies way more OS than its numbers off the shelf, like a Champ Sidewinder, but at least they still have glide and fly like a great control driver. A beefy Katana is something I never want to throw.

Destroyers obviously have a ton of variation, but at least they all have Destroyer characteristics. They might be very different in stability, and it is very frustrating to me sometimes, but at least you know what a OS Destroyer, beat in OS Destroyer, and flippy Destroyer fly like and how they react to different conditions.
