Eagle X. Star would be ok if you find a firm one, gummy star EX will turn more. Better would be one in champ. Circle stamps don't turn much at all when fresh and have a healthy fade. I have a new run pearly JL that flies like the circle stamps.

Not sure if the disc you seek exists. A champion Eagle "X" might work. An FD-2 is very similar to a Banshee despite what the numbers say.

Another option is to move up in speed and just make a clean smooth easy throw with a 9 or 10 speed disc. A C-CD-2, Saint Pro or Pro Orc might work for the shot you're looking for. Another option is a powered down slight annie release flex shot with a Predator. I find the Predator to be a very user friendly overstable Disc.

AJ Bird (Brinsters have less glide to me), a light mild-dome Firebird, a beefy champ Eagle X (circle stamp, high PLH champ)

this is the correct assessment. the definition of overstable is to have low glide, ie they don't want to stay in the air very long.

a flat champ teebird or domey champ banshee are going to be closest to what OP describes, though.

its just a little higher wing (parting line height) which makes a disc fly more overstable vs a lower wing or "PLH". You will notice many understable drivers have a low PLH while the overstable ones have a high PLH.

Thunderbird? Yeah it's faster but it's still a control driver, mellow enough to be glidey, and has the fade.

If your Teebird is star/gstar you can always try champ.

You have to find the plus molds that have the patent numbers. They are stiff and are nicely overstable compared to the average champ Teebird. Unfortunately they are getting harder to find. Also, they are Cal molds which might be a hint as to why they are a little more overstable

For the most part, this ^, as I see it...either season one into what you want, or learn to manipulate it out of it. That Spark you mentioned, if it retains HS stability as you beat it up, but keeps that biting fade, it'll get there. (Or else, you have to be able to overpower it, throw it well "past" it's speed rating.)

Eagle might start there for you, I get this flight from a new, max wt. Servo, which is Eagle X like. (But the Servo will eventually start turning/fading, so that a hyzer flip is necessary to get that lazer-->hard fade shot.)

I tend, @ full power, to put a very mild anny/OAT on the disc more naturally as opposed to a natural hyzer, so I can get this kind of shot from a Resistor (like a Banshee, or it looks like, a Spark) fairly consistently...which that shot is a thing of beauty on low lines. Turns left late and on rails.
