Default Overstable driver

Hey I have switched between a firebird and a predator, but both are in star and esp plastic. I prefer the firebird because it is really flat, but since it is in star it is starting to get beat in a bit. Since it is difficult to get a flat firebird nowadays, I'm looking for a new very overstable driver in champion/Z plastic. I was looking at the flick since it is so flat. I also was looking at the Nuke OS and the Ape. Anybody try these and compared them to flight paths of the firebird/predator? This disc will primarily be used as a forehand disc/medium distance driver in wind (I have a TeeRex and a Force for my long distance headwind driver as they are not stupid overstable for me).

Do not go the ape route, they flip in headwinds and are very much like a tee bird if you can throw over 400. But they are coming out with flat firebirds again. The champ glo firebirds are very flat and overstable and some 12x firebirds nowadays are just like 11x with them being flat and beefy.

you could try a lat 64 xxx. Super beefy. I would say more so than a predator or firebird.

pretty much this. find a heavy flat one in either plastic line. ive never seen high speed turn on a XXX. trident may also be a good choice. same rules apply here as XXX.

All of the 12x's I own are flat - as are most of what I've seen. Don't pay some fool a bunch of money for a stamp.

My champion 165g 12x is super flat and is by far the most over stable disc I own.
