Default Lids: need to know

I'm really wantng to find an old school-esque lid and am clueless where to start. I tossed a guys tournament stamped larger diameterb lid a few weeks ago and it was like a mini Ultrastar. I loved it. That thing was a run at it, dead straight line, slow and floaty machine of perfection. The problem is that I failed to retain the name of the disc by the end of the round.

I've before tried a polecat and birdie, but I neither liked the plastic nor the square edge. I want it to be a deep profile and rounded rim much like a smaller Ultrastar.

So, for you other old dudes and lovers of all lids deep, what are your suggestions?

Zephyrs are pretty squared off though, probably not what he's talking about here.

I think the one I tossed had an early 90s tourney stamp on it, leading me to believe that it's OOP.

The condor might be worth looking into. I just really want it to feel and fly like a smaller ultrastar. I tossed an 86 softie and that was pretty close, but was still slightly lower profile than the lid I had previously tossed.

Putt'r is basically a small diameter catch disc.

Rattler would be good as well.

Maybe it was a super puppy?

If you're looking for a lid like disc that fits in a typical disc golf bag, you might look at the zeppelin from discraft. It's very slow and glidey, but feels and looks like a large diameter putter.

Deep and rounded edge. Just what you're looking for. Not completely rounded but not as square as a polecat or birdie and flies like you described.
