Sorry, had to make a burger run for the wife and missed the reply.

So it's basically been said. The San Marino Sentinel was exactly what you wanted, a flat top Rocish disc. It was fast and overstable and fabulous. I used to keep one in the bag because you could throw it low and hard and get a great straight flight with a predictable late fade. I could throw Rocs farther, but if I couldn't get it up in the air and/or couldn't afford to finish right the Sentinel was the disc.

The www Sentinel is slower and less stable. If you nut on it it will flip, and it's not as good on the low line as the San Marino. Really, the www Q to me is like a Champ Ontario Roc. So, if you are looking for a cheap alternative to a Champ Ontario Roc, the www Q Sentinel is the ticket. If you are looking for a "flat top Roc in better plastic," you need to start looking for an old San Marino.

Are Sanny's flatter?
Sannys are noticeably flatter.

Default Q Sentinel

I throw an older flat Q Sentinel. Newer ones are just to much dome. What is the closest disc that resembles the older one? Core, Medius, Others???? Thanks in advance

From what I have heard the Hornet (the 2010 Ace Race) disc has a similar flight
The disc shape and profile are not similar though
The Hornet is higher profile and has more dome but again the flight is similar so you might want to try the Z version

For flight, I'd say the Drone or Hornet, but the Sentinal is still longer than these two. For feel maybe a Zone or CFR gator, but once again, not as long. The Core is waaaaay more understable, but it has the distance. Have not tried the "Pain" from Lat, but it's suppose to be an overstable mid. Have you checked out Hero or Discmania? Since they are all kind of one big happy Innova family, I know some mold crossover happens, but under diff names sometimes.

yeah I agree, closest would be hornet or maybe KC Roc for flight but that was a pretty unique disc so for feel and flight you will be hard pressed

Default Q Sentinel

i was curious if these were still in production. i had one a while ago and sold it because it generated some interest and i never really gave it chance. i was under the impression that the san marino q sentinels were no longer in production but i recently found some new ones on a shelf along with a cheap one in a used bin and i decided to pick em up. after giving them a try i may have found something that takes over my overstable mid spot in the bag. so are they still in production or did i just get lucky on these? they have the san marino tooling and a CEish feel/look.
