Interesting question by the OP. My friend has a beautiful 11x KC Teebird that she dyed and started throwing without realizing what it was. Still wouldn't let it go though. I regularly bag 11x Gazelles and an 11x Champ Teebird. Don't really know what I'll do once that 'Bird loses its flavor though. It's perfectly seasoned right now. Current runs just aren't the same.

I have this flat, beat, warped, and gummy 172 dx Rancho Classic Roc I love. This single disc could technically replace my mids and putters and leave me with just driver slots to fill. So I tried to get a backup and the only place I could find selling Classic Rocs was the factory store. I ordered three dx and two star to stock up, but I was disappointed in the result. The star were san marino mold, domey, and on both discs somehow the dome was higher on one side. I'd never seen a lopsided dome before. And very slippery star plastic. So my particular classic roc remains irreplacable.

I would looooove to have one to throw...or just another to keep it company.
I've been throwing the X Stratus for years, and I've never seen a Z, or ever even heard of one. I've also wondered why they don't offer them in ESP.

There was a run of the ESP Stratus in black for PDGA new member discs. Not sure I've heard of another run in more visible colors though. The new Archer (this year‘s Ace Race disc) is supposedly similar to a premium plastic Status though. Might be worth looking into for you...

Thanks, tbird, I'll keep an eye out for those. (The Archer that is, I don't do black discs)

Not too long into my disc life I started throwing a lightweight pfn champ Banshee. That was easily one of the best discs I have ever had. It's long gone, and every current Banshee I have found just doesn't feel the same (maybe mold, maybe me).

Black PDGA discs are not really an option for me on a wooded course. I threw the black ESP PDGA Stratus for a few years, but gave it up due to nerves.
I don't like to stress about losing a disc every time I throw it, so I only throw bright discs that I can easily replace.

As far as the Archer, yes, it is somewhat like a more stable Stratus, but it's more like a Storm in that regard.

Still would love to have a bright, durable Stratus.

Puddle topped SB/SSS/OG/$$$ Wizards. I have probably 30 wizards, and only 1 that matches my true desire.

Being from Minnesota, and a U of M grad, I'd love to have an Innova Gopher to hang on my wall.
