Default What do you bag which is REALLY underrated?

OK I had an idea - tell me what you bag which is underrated.

WAIT WAIT before you click away, let's put a spin on it. Do an advanced search within the "Discs" subsection of DGCR and under Keywords do "Search Titles Only."

Take the name of that disc you bag which you feel like nobody knows about and search it. If it pops up with <10 pages worth of replies, post it. If there is more than 10 pages of discussion on your favorite sleeper disc, I got news for you son, it ain't a sleeper


Mine is the Vertex - OOP mid, slow and understable GYRO goodness

So much for my Gateway Mystic lol. Harder than it sounds, I'll admit.

Kastaplast Kaxe Z. No dedicated thread for it, less than 250 comments mentioning it on the site.

This thing is the disc my entire bag revolves around, I could compare most of my bag to this disc when deciding what to throw on a shot.

It's a very fast and long midrange, really a midrange/fairway tweener. The hand feel is similar to a TL or a Leopard but slightly narrower rim, it flies like a mix of an EMac Truth and a seasoned TeeBird. If I throw it flat it just flies straight with a reliable forward fade at the end, if I power it up on a small hyzer it flips up a little, glides and then finishes with a little fade.

I can throw it on shots most people use fairways on and I can power down on it like a midrange.

It's one of the shallower midranges I've held and it forehands beautifully. I even have a friend who claims they can't forehand anything slower than a teebird due to the rim, but when I lend them this disc they throw great forehands with it.

The EMac Truth is probably in my top 5 all-time favorite discs, but the Kaxe Z kicked it out of my bag because I just always reached for it instead of the EMac.

MVP Particle. Great approach disc for me, probably vastly overshadowed by the Envy.

I have a few that almost no one throws but they are awesome; RPM Kahu- they look super cool an absolutely bomb. If you have decent but not incredible power it’s a great distance driver.

Prodigy M1- the name would lead you to believe it’s overstable. It’s not. It’s a straight to fade mid like a Bard, Roc or Yao. Beadless, good glide and it can hold a ton of lines. As long as you don’t think it’s supposed to be OS you won’t be disappointed.

Wombat3 - 7 pages, last post March 2020. Wonderful disc, especially in the woods.

And one of the best thread titles ever:

for the love of all things not necessary: Wombat 3 is born...

In Germany the Kaxe and Kaxe Z are rather popular. They are available and many newer or casual playes seem to start with these mid-fairway-tweener discs.

It looks to me like the biggest Mystic thread is a meager 3 or so pages! That one's a sleeper for sure. Also, I also thought the Mystic was pretty nice when I received on as a bonus disc.

Banger GT. Has a bunch of threads the longest of which is 4. So I'll count it. I know the groove throws some people off, but it is one of the sweetest fliers and so consistent. Now if only discraft would run it in esp consistently...
