Honestly a flat Eagle3 L Mold in current champ plastic would be closer to old CE Eagle flights.

Plus I would rather buy a stack of those than X Molds.

Slightly off topic, but wouldn’t the Eagle3 L just be a TL3? Putting the fairway “3 top” on the “L bottom” would redundant, they've already made TL3s.

No because the 3 top is just a modified top and molds have more than 2 pieces. there is a nose configuration and possibly others as has been speculated on dgcr before. Also the teebird and eagle share the same bottom but not the top. So an EagleX3 would be different than a Teebird3, EagleL3 different than a TeebirdL3

You can get them on Innova's website, to my knowledge though that's the first time they have ever been stamped "Eagle-L" on the top, it used to be certain runs were L and most were X, you had to look at the wing to determine the difference or the penned marking would be EX or EL.

A questionable move at best by Innova and probably one that led to the Eagle not being as popular since in their heyday, early 2000s, there weren't many resources to help players differentiate between the models, couple that with Innova's track record on consistency and you could have 2 completely different discs both stamped Eagle on the rack at a local shop. Wouldn't take long for an unknowing player to give up on that mold. I'm dumber than a bag of hammers so I'm not the greatest example but bought a few back then and gave up on them myself.

Whereas the Roadrunner bombs for anyone with a clean throw.
This is why I am not a huge fan of the flat Eagles. They all come out pretty overstable, similar to a Banshee. I prefer Star Eagles with some dome to them. These fly stable out of the box but have plenty of glide, and beat into fantastic shot shaping discs. As someone else here mentioned, the Eagle-X is basically a speed 7 Destroyer. They have almost identical flights when new and as they beat in.

Appreciate the heads up, but...

Innova was selling them for $14 and these guys are flipping them for $20? Basically a 45% markup, plus whatever they gig you on shipping. I'll pass.
