Then they discontinued them. Discraft brought them back but thet are never in stock. I still have an esp(discontinued) and today ordered 3 Ti version with a 2015 stamp which I found after an extensive search.

Only disc in my bag that I have no other model that could take its place.
Nice bump!

I'm a tad curious how you like the 2015 Ti (I think it was Ledgestone?) I got one and found it to be nice but not quite as overstable as a standard Flick. Mine even had some dome.

My vote is for the Star Beast. I don't think I've ever seen someone else bagging one (or at least throwing one), but I've had one in the bag consistently for a few years now. I love it for some straight/turnover forehands and also for straight downhill backhand shots. Good glide and far from flippy as long as there's not a headwind.

The Rattler, not for me but it flies sweet. I can't do DX plastic. Personally my vote is for something MVP.

I really like their proton Spin, few others seem to though. Understable out of the box.. Without burning and in premium plastic.

Second shout out to the discontinued Switch, fantastic all round disc if you can tune it in. Turns a bit and you can force for more, but depending on nose angle you can get a straight set down or a big late sweeping hyzer.

Never noticed that on trilogy stuff.
I'm unsure who it was, definitely one of the "newer" companies though.

I'm surprised you've never noticed! Flow, River, Core, Sorceress, Diamond, Stiletto, Saint, XXX, Giant, World, Stag are the L64/Westside molds I know I've tried with it.

Never thrown a DD or Prodigy disc before.

The Sling is an incredibly straight flying disc. Great HSS with very mild LSS. I am using this disc to dominate a lot of local straight shots. Shots that I would have previously had a lot more trouble with.

I can also shameless plug the Serpent. A disc that possesses no turn, hardly any fade & very little glide. That sounds like a phenomenal disc...well the Serp doesn't sell so great so I'm going to say it is underrated.

I throw a few that I'd consider under appreciated. I actually bag one of those 175g Sonics that GG brought into relevancy, I love that it has the weight to throw it kind of hard compared to those common 150 polecats or something, but can produce similar lines. Not so squirrely that it gets away from me easily, and it always lands soft.

I've bagged a Tursas for years, but at the suggestion of someone in the Discmania thread I picked up a D-Line MD recently to compliment the slew of MD3s I bag, and I have been super impressed. It will hold a turn on very low power shots, or flip over with a bit more gas. Really easy-to-activate glide. A perfect disc for the woods of NC. People ask me "what disc was that?" all the time after navigating tough anny lines. In a similar vein I bag a D-Line FD as well that I get comments about, but I think that magic "cheat" disc is a little more well-known, especially on these forums.

Gateway has to be most under rated for something. The original Speed Demon was my Firebird disc for a long time. Great grip but always warped near the rim. The Sure Grip Demons were fun too.

Yep ledgestone (150 class Flick) ! I ordered right before I posted yesterday. ETA on Monday. ESP was even flatter than z plastic.

I use 'em for forehands and with great confidence on get out of trouble shots.
