Default (Just for fun) Most overstable ‘6’ glide driver

What would you say is the most overstable, highest glide disc out there? Prodigy D2? DD Raider? Discraft Anax? Innova Ape?

I have a stable D2 that’s really nice in this area, and only slightly less glidey Defender, but haven’t thrown those other three. What say you?

I think the Ape is a 5 glide, but if it were 6 that’s your answer.

Of the ones I know are a 6 (printed in the disc) Anax or DDX would be close.

I kinda meant practical glide, not necessarily printed numbers. I’ve read all the charts. Sometimes the numbers don’t represent what you think you get.

Overstable and high glide don't really go hand in hand. That's why you seldom see overstable discs with high glide ratings. The disc can't really be floaty if it's spending the whole flight trying to fade.

I can probably name on one hand all the 6 glide drivers out there, and none of them would really be considered overstable.

Shryke, Daedalus, Heat, Bryce, Mamba, stuff like that. None of them are really overstable.

Yeah, and it will depend on arm speed as well. What hits the sweet spot for someone as glidey with a very stable finish will probably be a glideless meathook for something else, and a flippy s shape driver for another person.

Exactly why I asked those of you who have thrown more molds. My Defender has very good glide for a stable disc, and one of my D2s is more overstable, and it glides even better than the Defender. Made me wonder what else might be out there. So I went to number charts, knowing those only tell part of the story. Experience tells the other part.

About a decade or so ago, that first run of Feldberg domey Bosses, especially in dark red. Ridiculous glide...for a 25mm winged disc.
I know, I know, get more specific and arcane why don't I
