Sounds like some more recent runs of these could fill the somewhat hard to come by "massive HSS, mellow LSS, faster than a Rhyno" slot

I only have the Proto Star rat and love it but it doesn’t really have a place in my bag. It’s very much like a soft neutron or plasma Envy which I took out a while ago. I’m not sure it would be my first choice for many of the shots it would cover.

That sounds good. Now if they would run it in dx or xt, I would try one.

I picked up a Rat because I thought it would be a slow, stable disc with a lot of fade at the end. Mine never seemed to have the fade I wanted though, and now I throw a Caiman instead. I liked how the Rat flew, but it wasn't what I thought it would be.

Are the Shimmer Star Rats more OS? I'd like to try it again since I really like the feel in my hand.

And I'd definitely pick up another in XT.

yes, but only barely.
I don't think it the tiny bit of added stability will satisfy you.

I had the same problem with the Rat that I tried out. It just wouldn’t get the fade I was looking for. Bought a Zone and never looked back.

I'm backhand dominant and rarely throw sidearm unless I am scrambling or throwing a forehand up. I've been using berg/zone/mortars for this slot. I recently got a jawbreaker zone hoping that it would be less stable and maybe take a little less power for longer forehand upshots. Out of the box it ended up being more stable than expected. I could continue to beat it up and see how it seasons. However I just started thinking that throwing all these OS molds exclusively for my forehand probably isn't great for my form.

Now I'm starting to look at similar discs that are slightly less stable. I was going to start bagging a suspect but since its OOP I don't want to. Thinking about picking up another rat to try out for this use or just working exclusively on backhand upshots.

I mean you could get a rat and use it. Or just smack that zone into a few trees hard and it will be less stable. The zone also is easier to throw forehand because it is shallower.

Too bad the Suspect goes OOp, because it's the best for this slot. The Rat has a sharper edge, so for me it didn't feel comfortable - for flicks atleast.

Anyone throwing all the different runs of the rat? Put one of my color glows in a Kansas swamp and I don’t trust what Was living in there to wade in. The color glow run was my favorite release of a disc in a long time. They seem to be hard to find though. Looking to find the next best thing.
