Default Which vibram disc is most like a gazelle?

I'm trying to create a vibram bag and I'd like to replace gazelles..What would be your suggestions? Also does the vibram medium plastic last as long as innova champ? I haven't had any vibram stuff long enough to see.

According to Flight Analyzer, there is no Vibram disc that directly mimics a Gazelle. The closet are the Ascent, which is faster than the Gazelle, or the Obex which is slower.

IMO, the Trak and Ibex are a closer comparison to the Gazelle. But as you said, they're definitely not direct replacements.

I think a Trak would be a faster version of a DX Gazelle. The Arch would probably be a faster version of a Champ Gazelle.

X-Link is just as durable as Champ plastic (probably more durable).

Ascent with small numbers. (there are 2 font types, the smaller font is more understable)

Possibly a Trak.

I thought so too, but the Trak throws more understable for me. It's one of those things where your mileage may vary.

I am waiting to throw the Valley, Arch and Notch before I can make any comparisons.

Probably won't be until after AM Worlds when I get my hands on them. Since they won't be legal for Worlds play, I'm going to concentrate on my current bag without tempting (or torturing) myself with something new.

Yep, you guys got it.
Trak would be closest to a domey Gazelle.
Ascent would be closest to a fresh, flat top 11X Gazelle.

Thanks for the feedback. So far I've picked up an obex and an unlace.
I love the unlace, and I've only had a few throws with the obex but it seems
good so far. Kinda like a new roc. I'm looking to replace:

Wizard
Buzz
Leopard
Gazelle
wraith
firebird

My recommendations are in bold. The Ridge flies close to a Wizard but feels quite different. Ibex is a better Buzzz. The other discs are not direct replacements but are as close as you can get. Look for a less stable Ascent (smaller number Ascent I think) or a domey, high PLH Trak to replace a Gazelle.
