For me it's the FD. Too much glide for me and for my arm too much fade for the slot it would've taken in my bag.

Firebird. I just don't see a use for them.

I have not yet clicked with Wraiths, but love Destroyers.

And, I don't like floaty midranges. So, no Comets, Buzzz, Rocs, etc for me. Give me something like a Star Cro and I am very content.

The majority of Discraft midranges, Buzzz, Comet, Meteor, etc. the best one is the Nebula and they don’t make it anymore.

Didn’t get Destroyers until recently.

Also not a Wizard fan. I have a hard time getting them to do what I want.

I know the Buzzz is an excellent disc... But it just isn't for me.
Exact opposite for me. My friend who got me playing is a Roc guy, let me have a couple to play with. Never clicked with them. Found a Z Buzzz in a creek, called the number and she said "keep it". Never went back to beaded mids.

Now that I've had more time to think about this I'm going to say Leopard as well. I really, really don't like Leopards. They fit weird in your hand with that tall, narrow rim. I hate the way they fly. Every time I throw a Leopard it seems to want to flip, no matter how much hyzer I put on it. The courses I play are open enough that I have no use for a disc like a Leopard.

Everyone raves about Leopards, but I've never seen the attraction. I can do the Cheetah and Gazelle, but never a Leopard.

I threw a Z Buzzz for about 8 years. I liked it, but never loved it. The disc eventually started getting flippy, so I replaced it with a champion Roc3. HUUGGEEE improvement immediately. The Roc3 simply works better for me. I'm not even sure why. I can absolutely rip on the Roc3 and it'll hold perfectly straight. With the Buzzz I would get random high speed turn and miss a lot of shots because of it.

The Roc3 is one of those rare discs that won't turn no matter how hard you throw it. It also fades very gradually.

I won't say I hate the Buzzz, but I definitely like the Roc3 better.

I'm kinda with you on this one. I do find Firebirds throwable, but I don't have a need for them in the bag. I use a Flick for all the shots I'd do with a Firebird. Usually when I throw an overstable driver for distance I'll grab the XCal. Firebirds are too short and clunky for me to want to bag.

Y’all can send me any of those unuseable Firebirds you got.
