I only consider it a classic if other companies try to copy it.

What is Company X's version of Y?

Aviar
Roc
Teebird
Leopard
Firebird
Destroyer
Buzzz
Zone
Wizard

a few others

Everybody naming 15 year old molds. Too easy.

I’m wondering what disc will be crowned King of the 9 speeds. PD? Thunderbird? Avenger? That seems to be the new modern classic fairway slot.

Future classics? Avenger is OOP so probably not. If forced to pick, I'd go with PD over Thunderbird. But, both PD and Avenger are listed as speed 10 and Thunderbird a 9, so whatever. Make up your own class and declare classics as you see fit.

My criteria were that the disc not be OOP and that it still be popular with ams and pros.

Axiom/MVP
Envy
Ion
Volt

Discmania
P2
PD

Discraft
Zone
Buzzz
Force

Dynamic
Judge
EMac Truth
Justice

Innova
Aviar
Roc/Roc3
Teebird
Thunderbird
Firebird
Destroyer

Lat64
Explorer

Legacy
Rival

Millennium/Hyzerbomb
Mortar

Prodigy
M4

Westside
Harp

Surprised that I could only sign on for one Lat64 disc.

I was thinking Predator, my bad. I haven’t needed to try a new driver mold in years, so things get fuzzy.
PD has the Firebird wing, so I call it a speed 9, call it a “control” driver if it makes you happy. Whatever irrelevant parameters you choose to use, that speed range will produce the classics of this era. That and the overstable approach putter.

Missing so far...

Comet
Cyclone
XL

Longshot bet.. Axiom Mayhem.. After Feldberg mentioned it seemed to make it legit. Though I think the Inertia should be, but that's me.

Honestly not sure about the XL.. Solid love but oop for a reason..

I think the Ballista Pro has serious potential. I have 1, and I love it so far.

I don't know how many guys throw it on tour (if any), but the women do love it.

Lots of MPO guys are throwing it. I'd be surprised if it's not their most popular distance driver. The Havoc is the only Lat. 64 driver I've seen a pro throw instead in that class, now that Feldberg is gone (Gladiator).
