I have been throwing Legacy for almost 2 years and the rival is my go to fairway driver. It is like a faster eagle with more glide. I also throw the rampage as my go to distance driver. The clutch is like a Discraft magnet it is slightly overstable. I do not throw the patriot I found it a little more stable than I wanted.

Patriots cover a huge amount of shots in different wear. Rivals are little more HSS, but not as good in a wind as my 11x CAL mold teebirds but I use both.

Bottom line: Patriots are a game changer! Best disc in my bag IMO. Wish I had 2 more.

Not a fan of the Ghost ( hate rocs) but their plastic is sexy

I love the ghost in Excel plastic. I think it is more durable than the other base plastics. For putters, the Clozer starts out a little overstable, but beats in to be dead straight on drives and upshots. The Rival and Patriot are the best fairway combo out there in my opinion. The Rival doesn't have as much fade on the end as a teebird, but is still very HSS. The Patriot is a do it all fairway that you can shape tons of lines with. The Rampage is my max D driver. It starts off stable, but beats in to get huuuge distance.

Like the OP I have been wanting to try out some legacy, I am making a 12-14 disc bag for traveling. What would you recommend? mold and plastic type. I tend towards being a power player I'm a big guy at 6'6 tall and I throw RHBH/rhfh. These are my distances Max D:485, drivers:425-440, mids:315-350 and putters: 250-280.

Legacy is a fantastic disc manufacturer with the Rico's being about the best developers out there. So far they have chosen to mostly make modified copies to their favorites.

Excel is a nice stiff grippy dx type plastic. Protege is a nice stiff grippy kc pro type blend that is really durable and excellent. Icon is usually a nice gummy grippy star type plastic that is often fairly champystar-ish. Pinnacle is a nice stiff champion type plastic that usually comes out pearly, swirly, and sexy. I haven't seen legend/sparkle or whatever yet.

Clutchs are just like a magnet in feel but flies a hair more overstable.

Clozers are extremely similar to a big bead aviar in feel but a hair less overstable.

Ghosts are as identical to a roc in shape as possible really but a hair less overstable.

Patriots fly pretty similar to a leopard but are definitely a little faster about the speed of a sidewinder/roadrunner.

Rivals feel very similar to an eagle in hand but flies about in between a teebird and tl, closer to a teebird.

Cannons are similar in feel to a nuke, boss, or katana. It flies between a nuke and a katana.

Rampages are similar in feel to a nuke, boss, or katana. It flies roughly in between a boss and nuke.

Nice! thank you, I think I'm sold on a pair of rampages and rivals for my new setup. Are there major flight variations between plastic types, in particular Icon and Pinnacle?

Legacy is quiet but CONISTENT. Sweet stamps too

I would say Icon and Pinnacle aren't TOO diff in stability, not like Pro vs Champ.
