^This.

It required more than just a 'like'. Half my discs aren't stamped anyway.

I suspect if that is the case then the disc mold Eagle L has changed, the Exodisus might be using the older L mold wings that have changed over time and then workers and Dave recently retooled the L mold wing for the Eagle.

Wonder if Dave retooled for fun, or to manufacture some Eagle-L discs?

Yep I have only used DX for midrange before. Also I do not use the Eagle, My Dad does and if he lost his Yellow Eagle X in DX, well he would have to look for the right mold if not but luckily they do. Not that he plays really anymore but still. Now he would just have to look for the low dome ones. His original was a High dome DX Eagle X from 2005 and the high dome was not great for him after a few years of play, the disc had this problem in fighting wind on the lateral up and down despite still being Eagle X OS, just was not that stable in steady flight. The Champion I think is an Eagle L? not sure but that disc is perfect last I remember him throwing the disc, like an OS low topped Champion Viking.

Orginally not sure that may have been a Disc Plastic thing to have the Eagle L same as DX Eagle X as DX wears in quicker, but this time from other testimony it sounds like the old Eagle L wing got messed up and they dumped the older L onto a company that works through Innova, only Infinate took the mold .

Mayne it’s the cold weather but I can get this thing to ride flat at all. My champ 167g firebird goes farther. I can throw my kids farther than the eagle. I even tried running it over a few times and throwing rollers on concrete with it. Damn thing falls out the sky. I knew it would be stable but this seems un-throwable. Am I not good enough to harness the eagle?
Most X's need some time to work in, I carry an X and L for that reason, straight to understable with the L, hyzer and alot of forehand with the X. I like the firebirds for forehand rollers. give that X some time it will get better

Seems more likely that Innova would want to accommodate Heimburg at this point.

My champ X is on its 4th year, and seemed to begin hitting its sweet spot for throwing last season. The plastic seems to have finally broken in more.
