Better buzz?

Keep in mind that the Flight Analyzer (according the folks on Reddit) is all but dead. It hasn't been updated since January 2nd. So you might not have a chance to compare the most up-to-date options.

The Gazelle is the one that's hard to replace, because the Vibram mid-ranges are speed 5, whereas the fairways are speed 7 or 8. Small number Ascents are very, very glide-y... hardly noticeably overstable. I'd call them stable, with great glide... hard to find though. I have one in a soft, and it's not for sale.

I'd compare the o-Lace to a Wraith, because both have that little wiggle to them at higher speeds, but the hang-up there is that the o-Lace is 13 whereas the Wraith is speed 11, and then what kind of Wraith are you looking to replace? O-Lace replaced a star Wraith for me, but what are you expecting?

o-Lace 13 5 -1 3
Wraith 11 5 -1 3

Probably a lighter weight Lace, like mid-160s... the Lace has a lot of its weight towards the rim of the disc. It'll beat-in to a nice flight pattern.
