But seriously... Just buy a MD4, or a wasp... You'll be better off.
Need faster? Metal Flake Teebird, Felon, Firebird, Champion Thunderbird....

MVP Resistor is a great OS fairway, 7 speed. It powers down great, so well in fact, I haven't really needed very OS mid. It also can handle wind extremely well. I think it was the second MVP disc I ever bought. Its been in my bag for 6 years, been thru hell and back and still doesn't turn on its own. Its lost some of its fade, basically its a flat champ teebird now. After my neutron finally starting losing fade a couple years ago I put a sparkle proton in the bag and it hasn't changed much, if at all. The two make a great pair of OS utility discs and work great alongside my Crave which is just a laser beam after its 5+ years in the bag.

I like the Spark for overstable fairway duties. There are some runs of Teebirds that are really overstable as well, but most of them are of course normal

I've wondered about this. I've thought about tinkering with my utility OS slot, and the XXX seems appealing for its combo of overstability and relatively low speed. But the specs make it seem like it should be a Speed 9 or 10. Does it feel like a speed 9 but fly like a speed 7?

Blaze, Banshee, and XXX are what you're looking for.

It's kind of a niche slot, similar to a speed 6 understable fairway or fast understable mid.

I've been carrying a Zone and PDx lately for utility OS. But on days where the winds are sustained at 20mph+ I like to carry a beefy fairway, too. That's a Felon for now. At times I've wanted it to fly slower, since the gap from Zone to Felon feels much bigger than the gap from Felon to PDx.

So for me, the decision isn't a Speed 7 in addition to a Justice and Firebird. It's a disc that can split that gap and replace both.

The Whippet is still in my bag. Glad they make it in Star so it's lasts longer than 3 tree hits.

A seasoned Viper was also in my bag for a while.

For me, XXX is noticeably slower than a Firebird.
