Default Avenger SS experts out there?

I bought this used ESP Avenger SS that i loved first time I threw it. Flies like my very seasoned Orc; nice S-turn, light fade. So, I bought a couple of new ones in case I lose this one I love and they are super flippy like a Roadrunner. One person mentioned the older molds were more stable. What should I look for to find some quality backups?

I find the Z Avenger SS stable and easy to throw.

the Z is one of the best forehand and forehand roller discs I've tried.

Yep, Z's are a lot less understable than ESP. And the newer runs I've seen at stores have less dome and higher PLH, so it follows that they'll be even less understable than some of the other Z's.

I prefer the Cryztal Z has the same gummy feel as the ESP compared to the standard z which is stiff, but still plenty stable. Can catch them on eBay for between 15-25$ but they aren't as common so you might have to check a few times.

I fing the Ti SS is a nice stability between the z and esp. depends what shot you're looking for out of it I suppose. An ESP surge might be closer to an Orc for the S shot you looking for.

What weather conditions were you throwing them in? Over the winter my Z Avenger SS was my goto driver but as the temperature and humidity increased it became flippier and flippier until it left the bag a couple of weeks ago. The last time I threw it, the flight looked like a really nice Firebird flick.
Also, what weights? I recently tried one a little lighter in X plastic and the couple of flights I got out of it before I tacoed it on a tree (I like to hit first available reeeeeeally hard) were VERY different from what I was used to.
I have a feeling the Z will be back in the bag next winter. Unless the Tern that replaced it...
