This is pretty good at comparing discs across brands. I haven't thrown any of the Innova discs that seem to be close to the Flick on the chart though.

I'd say my Star Max is slightly faster than my Elite Z Flick but have very similar flights in max weight. A max weight Champ Firebird is also close, slightly less stable.

I think a Starfire would be the most similar. I have a couple of buddies who use this disc solely for forehand. Good luck with your possible switch to all Innova.

Not to be a jerk..... famous last words..... but if you can only throw a monster, you're not throwing it right.

Keep the Flick in your bag. It is to your advantage to throw plastic which suits you. Not a specific brand.

only throw a monster?...i'm talking for max distance and accuracy(lhfh) and something that can ALWAYS turn left at the end(im a lefty)...i certainly seem to throw it correctly...i have aced with it and dropped in many deuces..this is my opinion and it is what works best for me...i try to forehand much else and it flips too easily..maybe you just read what you liked into my post? in the last 15 years i would like to think i have thrown almost everything that has come out at least once...too early in the am for a newb to ruffle this bird's feathers

As a primarily Innova thrower, I can tell you there isn't anything like a flick, Excaliber is similar in flight pattern, but still not the same <at least forehand>. My bag is entirely innova, except for 2 of my forehand discs, that is the flick, and the crush, both in Z plastic. I like the stability and predictability of these 2 discs, especially the flick. I've gotten excalibers, max, T-rex, and have a monster <not in my bag though>, and none throw or feel the way my flick does.
Oh I forgot I do carry 2 DGA discs, my Blowflies. There's nothing wrong with having a bag with multiple brands in it, that just supports all companies!

Yeah, I wasn't saying its bad to have more then one company...was just curious if innova made any shallow short rimmed drivers like the flick...if so I mighta tried it....I threw my max yesterday and it seemed like a longer flick so I might use that from time to time...we will see :P thanks for the info guys!
