Default Best popular disc knockoffs

With all the new companies out there, it's inevitable that they strive to replicate some of the more popular molds. Disc X is like a Buzzz, Disc Y is like a TeeBird, etc. What are some of the best clones on the market?

I'll toot my own horn and say the Scale is a fantastic Rhyno competitor. Very similar in shape and design but the Scale edges it out in plastic composition, in hand comfort and stability

My favorite fairway "clone" would be the Crave. It shares some similarities with a Teebird in flight but of course not exactly.
It has tons of HSS but minimal LSS. It really flies like a well worn in beefy teebird. I love these things.

Legacy has the best clones hands down:
Rival = 11x teebird
Ghost = 8x Roc
Outlaw = destroyer in better plastic

Oh that is so true. McPro killer for those that want a much cheaper replacement.

The Felon is also a very solid FB competitor except it starts out a bit less stable out of the box.

Already said it but Ghost = (8x, or so I'm told)Roc.

And the Protege Ghost is the best "Roc" on the market right now.

Outlaws are significantly wider than destroyers and rivals are 1.8, not 1.7. Plus I don't think many are that teebirdish to begin with.


I'd say that legacy could be a clone of anything depending on what run you get, but ghosts are solid and I really like them.

I'll be checking out the lockjaw here soon against my Polecats though.
