Need people to see a side view. From the info you stated of the OS, the mold sounds to me like an X version.

The L is a flat wing and straighter. The x is a concave wing, and more over stable.

Maybe. But you should never underestimate Innova's ability to make discs from the same mold that fly completely different. If you do some searching through this forum you will find people with Eagle X's that fly like Firebirds and others that fly like Leopards.

You can keep beating on your and it might come around or you could buy another one and see if it fits your needs a little better(I recommend trying a Star one.)

Thanks to you both. That explains why my flock of Eagles fly pretty differently.

Champ - very overstable
Barsby 2020 Star - somewhat overstable
Star Infused - slight turn, then fade
DX - turn and fade
old DX given to me - big turnover disc

Unless it says -L, it's usually an X. Discs are labelled X and L when both molds are run around the same time. X is the standard. I have yet to see an embossed L in premium plastic. There was a star run of Ls a couple of years back, penned, and a Champion run of Ls during the patent era.

The only one I know of which announces that outright is the gstar editions of the eagle. Neither my Star or Champ ones announce it until you feel the wing.

Yeah should have been more specific. The Gstar is the only one that I'm aware of that lists it on the hot stamp. I was referring to the penning on the back.

The infinite discs Exodus is the Eagle-L mold.
