Lighter weight champions are going to fly like champions. Contrary to popular belief, disc weight only has a minimal effect on stability. Geometry is the major factor when it comes to stability, not weight. It's not like muscles care if the disc is 175g or 165g. It's just a tiny 10g difference

To those saying banshee....I already have one. It is great, but it is not super long. It is slightly domed and that's harder to get a consistent FH, otherwise the disc is great in it's own way for me so I will continue to bag it.

@wims I've been doing an ongoing test of champion/blizzard destroyer and wraiths at different wraiths. I've had the opposite experience. In fact the 155-158g discs had too much turn, but when I went to 160-163g I found that the small difference resulted in less erratic turning. It's still not perfect as they beat in so I think longer term a slightly heavier jump up would be wise. But a firebird=/=destroyer so who knows how that would work for me

Blizzard is not champion. Blizzard molds up different to champion, the discs get different geometries. I bet that your lighter discs have a lower wing than your heavier discs

Star or G* Firebird could be a good place to start.

Also look at a CPD and if your not 100% to Innova teh Axiom Fireball is a great all rounder driver. Not as overstable as the Firebird at low speeds but at higher speeds it stays very straight.

Yes, I have a first run. It starts out just a touch more mellow than a standard Star as long as you don’t get a domey one. They beat in nicely and pick up a touch of turn and lose some fade.

I don’t use it because it turns more than I prefer but it’s still a good disc.

A champion Starfire might work. It's overstable, but not uselessly so. The Starfire can be cranked out for good distance without worrying about it flipping.
