Default Slow OS approach slot

Just lost my Yikun Crossbow. I loved that disc and am definitely considering just buying another one. When I replace a disc though I like to at least explore my other options for that slot.

For the unfamiliar, the Crossbow is 4/1.5/0.5/4. It just hooks and sits. I mainly use it for dogleg approach shots, and I like flicking it more often than BH.

I just went to the shop today, and the guy recommended a Discmania Tactic (4/2/0/3). I just tried it on the course, and it's not really serving the same function as my Crossbow was. I'm gonna give it another shot, but I don't think this disc is the answer.

Some others that I have considered:
Pig
Zone
Harp
A1 (Prodigy)
Entropy (MVP)


I think among those the Pig is the closest to what I'm looking for. I think the rest are a little too glidy for what I'm looking for. I'm wide open to suggestions for this slot. I'm leaning towards either another Crossbow or a Pig, but I always like to mix it up when I buy new discs.

The only one of those that is at all close to as OS as the Crossbow is the A1. I would say all of these are less stable, have more glide and feel chunkier in hand.

If you loved the Crossbow, the Justice and Deflector are really closer. If you want a little less fade look Harp or Zone.

The Pig isn't similar? I've never thrown one so honestly asking. And I've never thrown a Deflector either, but it's 5 speed 4 glide. I use a Pyro for my main OS midrange, but I'm looking for something else with a little less juice. Like the 50ft-150ft range? If I'm inside 50 I'm throwing a putter for my up, and if I'm outside 100 or so I'll look to my Pyro. I routinely overcook my Pyro from 50-100ft though.

I think its way less stable, but thats just my opinion.

The Crossbow is the closest thing to an RDG Stego Ive thrown its an absolute beef monster.

The pig isn't really any more os than the zone or harp. They'll all serve as consistent meathooks when powered down slightly. You could also just get a Justice to do a similar thing, only it will knife into the ground moreso than fade into it.

I dont know anything about the Crossbow so I cant compare it to anything.

I have thrown Pigs, Zones, Harps, and I have a Tactic and an Entropy as well.

The Tactic and Harp are very similar so if you didnt care for the Tactic you can probably rule the Harp out.

The Pig and the Envy are fairly similar in flight but the Entropy carries a little more distance. Both are beefier than the Harp and Tactic.

The Zone is slightly but noticeably more overstable than all of the others I have mentioned.

I have recently started bagging a Justice and absolutely love it. A tick faster than the Zone/Pig/Harp but it is noticeably beefier than all of them.

A Gator in Metal Flake Champion /MF or a Caiman in Champion is what you want. Not sure if mold has a bead on it or not big bead Gator, no bead or mini, Caiman.

I did a comparison video between the Justice and Crossbow and as you can see it is super OS. Almost like a faster Stego.
