The Millennium Aries is another good 2.1 cm option. I would also recommend checking out the Wraith.

Kind of like the Flick. Another example would be the original Quest At Defender it was so low profile it was almost unthrowable.

Did the Mamba shuffle for a while, found the disc too unpredictable. Ok on wide open shots, but otherwise couldn't rely on it.

I'm going to strongly recommend the trespass

Classified as Speed 12

Probably flies closer to a Speed 13

Gets Speed 13 distance

And has the rim size of a Speed 10

(If I remember correctly, it has the same rim size as the Surge)

And that's why disc companies stay in business!

Tern, I also find the rim on my MVP Insanity quite sane.

Find the pearly champ ones or a MF one. They are way more predictable and are built from concrete it seems. Regular champ plastic seems to be all over the place as you've noticed.

The Valk held the distance record for awhile. They go far.
Pair it with a PD for control.

Yep, took blizzard plastic and 10 years to break it too.. I'd agree with the valk recommendation.

I would agree with most and say your biggest distance with a smaller rim would be Valk, Thunderbird, PD or Escape.
