Default Latitude 64 Villain Replacement

Hi gang,

I used to have a First Run Opto Villain (12 4 0 4), that I loved, especially after it beat in a little. I've noticed they're OOP now (stopped in 2016), but a couple new molds have popped up. Which of these would you say is most like the Villain?

Scythe: 12 3 0 4
Ballista Pro: 14 4 0 3
Cutlass: 13 5 0 3.5
Recoil: 12 4 0 3

I'm thinking that the Recoil and Scythe are both worth trying out (as I've read good things about them)... I'm leaning towards Recoil, but would definitely be interested in reading people's opinions!

Thanks!!

Recoil is comparable in my (limited) experience. Been a long time since I've throw a villain but the recoil is a good disc

I've thrown the Cutlass and the Scythe, and they are both beef, probably moreso than the Villain. Recoil is the newest of this type and gets good reviews.

FWIW, they still have a number of Villains for sale at Infinite discs, both gold line and opto.

I have owned two Scythes, both of which were wildly overstable. They were basically glideless meathooks, I enjoyed them but I don't know if that is what you would be looking for. I believe the villain is more a of destroyer type disc so I would say maybe a raider, not too sure though, you may like the gladiator as well.
