Default "Flexiest" disc on the market

There have been a ton of threads about the straightest disc in the bag / on the market. This would mean basically x/x/0/0 flight numbers.

However, there is also room for a disc that makes those magical S-lines and I'm curious to learn which discs have the fastest side-to-side movement.

One requirement is that the disc has to come back and complete the S-line. Other one is that I'm looking for a disc that would make its' moves rapidly so I'm not that interested in super flippy speed 14 drivers that sail all over the place.

So when the straightest disc has as small turn+fade, this one would have as big turn+fade as possible (all of you nerds could argue it is -turn+fade ). Having a lot of turn, but at the same time a very strong fade to bring it back.

My first candidate would be an Eagle, but what other moulds would fit this bill?

Can't say which mold would have have the absolute curviest s-curves, but it's something fast and well below max weight...I see way more action from my 150 bag than I do from the same molds in max weight. For that matter, the most voluptuous s-curve in my bag is by far the 42g mini driver.

I used to carry eagles for these shots and forehand rollers, but I found the new thunderbirds can do exactly the same shot if powered down some, and the star plastic seems to be doing it even better as it wears in. Great s-curves back- or forehand. I use a destroyer thrown anhyzer (powered down accordingly) for max d or if I want a skip at the end. I haven't found a mid range I can do this well with yet. Usually the thunderbird ranges correctly for mid-distance shots. I think you can use almost any disc as long as you throw the right speed, height, and release angle. My buddy throws one of the prodigy F drivers on s-lines better than anyone else I know, I will have to see which mold it is.

To get the biggest S curve or flex shot actually requires a moderately to very OS disc released with anhyzer or OAT. Firebird for fairway or shorter distance drives, XCal or Stiletto for longer distance.

Maybe it is not obvious from the first post, but while this is true to some extent, it is not what I'm looking for.

The question is actually 50% actual need and 50% theoretical. In addition to finding a nice line shaping disc I'm also curious to learn which molds are able to combine low HSS and high LSS. I want to see what similarities such discs have in terms of rim shape etc.

I remember Feldberg calling the Missilen something like this.

I use a xXx for super flex goodness. My Crave flexes nicely too.

edit. You posted when I was apparently, didn't see your clarification.

The newer visions and the Hatchet both have a lot of wiggle.

There's obviously the OS flex shot, but a Katana will have a strong turn and good fade naturally, which I think is what you were getting at.

If you want something that will always fade, the overstable side of every manufacturer's lineup should satisfy that requirement.
