Default Flattest Sentinels?

I've been hearing really good things about the Millennium Sentinel lately. I'm planning to try one out, but I'd like some flat ones. What run of them has been the flattest?

If anyone has some for sale, PM me please.

Some research tells me that I should be looking for San Marino Sentinels?

Good luck finding them for a reasonable price. I would recommend the Brinster Sentinels. Not as flat but easier to find and much more reasonable in price.

Paging Davidrboy. Seriously, he's the biggest Sentinel aficionado around here. San Marino Q Sentinels (Sanny Qs) are the ones to get. They are flat and supposedly fly further than the more recent "www" runs. The Brinsters are supposed to be a bit better, but still not as good as the old Sanny Qs. The Sanny's are hard to find though; they don't necessarily sell for a fortune (I've seen $30-$40 depending on condition), but it's hard to find anyone willing to sell them.

^ that is about the long and short of it.

You don't want to go to the trouble and expense of tracking down Sanny Q-Sentinels just to try out the mold though.

Brinsters give a good introduction. They are solid throwers -- not quite as fast but a touch more glide. Similarly OS, maybe a touch less than a fresh, max weight Sannny (for which you should expect to pay easily $60 or so, if you can even find one).

If you just like old Frisbees, there are two good old runs of pro plastic (Millennium base plastic) San Marino mold Sentinels out there. The "Limited Edition" Run came first, but they were so popular that the Sentinel went into regular production. The 1.2 Run is also the Sanny mold and also excellent durable pro plastic. These have a touch more dome than the Sanny Qs, but fly about the same when fresh. And they season very slowly. I threw one constantly for a couple years and it never got straight like a Roc would. If you REALLY want to try out the original mold, start there. You can track those down for $15-20ish.

I am also a Sanny Sentinel thrower. However I got most of mine before they went up in price. Although I did recently buy a 10/10 Sanny for $40.

Your best bet as davidrboy mentioned, is to give the Brinsters a shot. The glows and oranges are the flattest I've seen. If you really like those, then you can go down the expensive path with Sanny's.

I might even have an old one to sell, but it won't be super cheap.

The yet to be produced RDG mid.

Jcass and others could be more accurate, but it should be an OS mid in good base plastic. I know jcass likes Rocs and Bards so I'd expect something along those lines. He seems really busy with the new roll at Gateway so who knows when we will see it.
