it kinda depends on your power level but i would say any of these to replace the 2nd run fd

1st run:
eternal - blue,pink,orange and yellow
apex - red, blue, mint green

2nd run
sublime - silver
eternal - maybe the pearly green,pink or blue - these are straighter but would be easier to manipulate than the 1st runs.
apex - orange

less stable to pair with these^

1st run - most are a little to stable compared to other 2nd runs.

2nd run -
eternal - pearly green,pink, blue
apex - purple,
sublime - light blue or royal blue

i would suggest keeping an fd in the bag until you find one that is understable enough

Of all the plastic blends/colors, what are the firmest?
Something at least as firm as MVP Plasma; Discraft Ti would be better.

Ended up ordering a 3rd run yellow sublime and a 1st run yellow/green eternal. Looking forward to letting them fly!

Second run Eternal Greens (pearly and candy) and Eternal pinks (pearly and candy) are firmest, like a stiff Champion. Good grip though.

the pearlies arent what i would consider firm but if you live in a cold state, it will be lol. the candy pink,candy green,yellow apex from the 2nd run and maybe the pop top red apex first runs are the firmest. the 2nd runs i mentioned are all the most overstable too though, keep that in mind. orange 2nd run apex are slightly firm as well ,just super flat and a nice straight stable flight.

the 3rd runs are overstable but will compliment the 1st run well.

Booter could be right about the pearly Eternal models being less stiff in hot climates. I wouldn't know anything about that, and don't want to find out.



I am feeling a handful of Alphas right now in my 65 degree house, rather than outside in the 41 degree rain. The discs are composed of 1 candy pink Eternal, 5 pearly pink Eternals, 5 pearly green Eternals, as well as an assortment of Apexes and Sublimes that do not feel are stiff; but no candy green or blue Eternals in this box unfortunately. Comparing this list of discs to the unthrown Elite Z Avenger now in my hand, I cannot distinguish the 2nd run Eternal plastic from Discraft's Elite Z plastic. Same feel to me. If you consider Discraft's Elite Z plastic to be stiff enough, then you may find the 2nd run Eternal Alphas to be to your liking too.

The Eternal Alphas' stiffness does not compare to other super stiff discs such as a first run DX Thunderbird or a PWP Wizard, but they are on the stiffer side of things.

I found a 1st Run Eternal in my local used bin. Imagine my surprise. It's pink with solid dome so I'm guessing it'll be fairly OS if I read this thread correctly.

it will be mildly OS but a workable OS and reliable in the wind. not as os as the 3rd run sublime or 2nd run yellow apex. good score!

the alpha continues to be my favorite mold in my bag and proves why. this weekend at a tourney on some private property the winds were swirling and gusting 20+ on saturday and jumped to 35+mph on sunday. my sublime ate those head winds for breakfast lunch and dinner, i never had to worry about it flipping over in that wind. my other eternals flew fantastically in every other directions the wind was coming, so much love for this mold.
