Eagle? Exodus? Stalker?

Not trying to participate in a thread-jacking but you sir need Mint Alphas, lots of 'em.

Alphas are molded by MVP, right?

I like ALL those discs. I actually miss my stalker. I think a disc that flies true to 7/5/0/1 would be great - I know a lot have those "numbers" but a disc that is high speed stable with minimal fade, right now im using an Amp and its pretty good. I like the F5 as well, Eagles are great but once they're beat in good. Exodus is an Eagle L in star plastic, cant go wrong but actually has more fade than expected, too much for that STRAIGHT finish I'm looking for. Its a tough one, its all about how you throw/play the disc. Lord knows I don't need any more fairway drivers.

I like it....yes....but it would turn like a driver and then late hard fade like that of a champ Valkyrie. Its good, I like it, great for out shots like thumbers. Feels nice. But just wasn't the kinda flight im hoping for. So far the Eclipse Amp was the closest in the MVP family. FD is close but so much glide makes it ridiculous. I like the Patriot - its more US generally but can be finessed well. idk. I have plenty of time to get new discs - this year is not that time. I am trying to UNLOAD discs at this time. Gotta pay for stuff

Stalker was one of my first loves. Still have a few but kinda thought it flew a similar line to a C FD. I'll pull them out and throwvthem again.

All I need is to fall for the Eagle/Exodus. I already have more $ and storage space devoted to this slot than any other.

They're definitely MVP plastic. If you want to check an alpha out I'd say go for a 2nd run light blue eternal plastic. It's got that nice bit of give I like in a champ-like plastic, flies 8/4/0/2, powers down fine yet will take a ton of power and fly true.

I tried a 167 champ teebird in the field with my Alphas the other day just because, it seemed to come up short of my alphas on about every shot. I don't care for the dome on my champ teebird either. I know tons of pros/casual players love them and they work great for them, just not for me.
