Default Flip to flat, straight, far, little fade - What’s in your slot?

I used an Escape for this but it’s become too understable. I replaced with a Getaway, but it’s too fresh, and might fade too much at the end.

I suspect for many, the answer will be a beat-in Teebird. What do you use?

Brand new champ will have very little turn, but they usually get to that flip to flat point pretty quick. But I have had plenty of eagle-l's that get an odd amount of uncontrollable turn. Not sure why.

I have an FD3 that feels great. Very stable. Does the FD have similar feel? Tell me out of the box vs beat in?

If you guys could also post how far the recommended discs fly for you, this thread would be gold. Especially for us low power arms. 200-250 Deputy, 275-300 Tursas/Mako3/Leopard.

A thousand answers, all correct, none that will help you. You have to figure this out for yourself. Have fun.
