Default More Stable than a Pain

I have a gold line pain right now and it's not filling the hole in my bag that I expected it to fill. Great disc but its not quite what I need. I'm looking for something a hair more stable than the gold line pain that I have. I've tried the opto but that still wasn't stable enough either. I have a core right now that I love and the thing I don't like about the pain is the weird shaped rim. I like the blunt round rim on the core and I'm looking for something similar. I was looking at a Mace or a Roc. Anyone have any other suggestions? I'm looking for premium plastics (opto, champion, gold line, VIP, tourny, etc).

Star Rancho rocs are pretty beefy. I loved mine. Even at 171 it wouldn't turn.

Verdict rim is a lot closer to the core so you might like that. It's pretty OS and I think a little more so than the Pain. I like to throw a Trident powered down some for this type of shot. It's more of a utility driver but hooks left pretty hard and is powered down easily to fly like a OS mid.

I'm assuming you dont like the roc like shape and bead on the pain.

Drone, tensor, or hornet !!

Tensor and hornet are beadless and have a nice os flight, but can still go a long distance straight before the solid fade. The drone feels ok, a little taller than the hornet. The drone flies in more of a C shape, like a zone, constant fade right out of the hand lol

My vote goes for the Hornet. No matter what disc I try to fill that slot with, the hornet always gets put back in

I actually found a suspect at the course tonight with no name or number. Threw it a few times, exactly what I was looking for. Crazy how things work out sometimes.

I have both the Mace and the Core in GL. I use the Core a lot and love it. The Mace is a bit more stable and I think it will fill that gap.

Shark3, Gator or Drone would work.
