I'm at about 5000 feet for reference.

Not sure if they have any of the first run light blues left but they were the best throwers for what I wanted out of them. The yellow I threw was still useful but seemed less stable fresh than I expect of an Eagle L.
My Exodus is also a light blue 159g S-blend, and it flies as you've described. I've held off getting a second one, but I would not mind a little less stable one, so I might try one of the oth weights and colors.

I remember the days of walking into the disc shop and being presented with an array of XDs, which were my favorite touch and approach disc. I should have bought them all!

Now I use a thrashed lightweight Omega SS to carve anny upshots. The XD should have never been discontinued. Nothing Innova has released like it with has matched the feel and flight IMO.

Yeah it is not oop but a very similar disc in flight is the TL just a speed faster and not quite as flippy to the right. My brother in 2011 or so had to use the DX mold of Gazelle again used before Road Runner. In 2011-2013 the Road Runner his main flippy disc was hard to find at the time and he did not want to lose his only disc.

I forget did the XD have a bead at all? If so the Lighting Upshot #2 in base plastic is what you might be looking for in flight and feel.

The XD was shallow and beadless, very similar to a Classic Roc without the bead. I threw the Lat 64 Spike for a while, but kind of gave up on the shallow putters.

Gazelles are stable.
Not flippy.

I love the Discraft 2008 Ace Race disc, the Nebula. Discraft never ran it into production except for some Limited Edition runs in Z. Fortunately, I had the foresight to stockpile these and should be good for awhile but 2008 is nearly 11 years ago and nothing lasts forever. I think the best replacement I've tried is the Verdict, b/c they start out decently beefy and still fly fairly straight after beatings. No bead and a little faster feeling too, which I like about the Nebula.

What OOP molds are y'all yearning for?
I also have a fairly good stash of Nebs (hit me up if you need some; I like Zones just as much). Are the Verdicsts also small diameter?

I had a Talon that was epically straight. I use Eagles now, but haven't got one that flies like that.

*Edit: Just saw the Flash and Crush were OOP. Neither has made my bag much, but the Wraith is my Flash replacement. I guess an Orc might replace a Crush. My buddy throws Flashes a lot. I think he's going slower with Eagles or something to replace them.

Unfortunately not. That's the hardest thing about finding a Nebula replacement, small diameter mids with fresh Z Buzzz type stability is a dead zone. The Verdict at least feels a little smaller in the hands so seems similar. But the flight/speed seems fairly ballpark.

Discraft Z Crush

I wouldn't call it my #1 favorite but it got a lot of use. Feels great for my FH grip, not too fast (speed 11) & plenty OS. I guess it didn't sell very well but it was such a good mold.

I'm using FD3's & Thunderbirds appropriately for that OS driver spot. Speed 9 is my preference.

Have you tried a Pulse? The Pulse might be a hair faster than a Crush, but they feel and fly pretty much the same. I thought the Pulse did everything the Crush did, but better.
