I own a 2018 LX Felon, and yes it has some dome too it. I handled a few 2019s at the local shop but didn't buy any (personally I felt like the 2019 LX plastic was a bit slick); the 2019s also had some dome. So if two years in a row had dome, then odds are 2020 will too.

It's not a lot of dome, but every non-LX Felon I've had has been board flat. So by comparison the LX does seem a little domey in the hand. But compared to something like a Getaway the LX Felon will still feel pretty flat.

I've been told that Moonshine Felons will fly just like a Sexton Firebird....but I've never thrown a Sexton....can anyone confirm or deny this? I have 3 or 4 MS Felons that are very OS and have a place in the bag, but I've always been curious what the difference is

I have a fusion Felon and a 2016 Sexton Firebird, both fly about the same. not super overstable. Not sure about the newer runs of the Sexton's

Anybody throwing the 2020 Lucid-X Felons? How does the plastic feel...are they slick like 2019, or closer to the firm but grippy 2018 batch?

Weird, I got 4 of the 2019 LX Felons, and they're all SUPER flat, almost like the FAF run of Firebirds from years ago. I'd actually be interested to see how a domey LX Felon handles

Interesting. I own four total Felons, and my 2018 LX is the only one with any kind of dome to it. The Biofuzion, Fuzion, and Lucid are all board flat. The LX certainly isn't "domey" by any means, but it does have a slight crown compared to the other three. The 2019s I felt up also had that slight crown. They're all still comfortable in the hand, although I prefer the 2018 plastic feel over the 2019.

Anybody have an update on this? I was curious to see the comparison between them if there's a better feeling version, since the 2018 seems like exactly the kind of plastic I'd like. Wanted to try them out for a firebird repalcement, since I lost one that was almost that taffy like plastic that was grippy, but still pretty flat and stiff.

Well I caved and bought a couple 2019 LX Felons. They are on a decent discount on DD's website to make room for the 2020 batch. Haven't thrown them yet, nor do I plan to anytime soon. They're simply backups for my 2018, which has a better feeling plastic IMO. But here's the pleasant surprise: they are board flat, maybe even slightly concaved! I'm shocked, but pretty happy with that. Still a slicker-than-snot plastic, but for a utility disc I really don't get too worked up over the hand feel. I'm content having that OS utility slot in my bag covered now for the foreseeable future.

If you could have a Felon in any plastic, what would it be? Particularly if it had like a cool Skulboy stamp or something....?
