I've cycled my way through Falks and a Stahl, a Gote, a Kaxe, and a Kaxe Z (I really want to like kasta...), but other than the K1 Kaxe Z for flicks, none of them have found a longterm place in my bag.

Except for the Rekos. They ain't leaving the bag!
I have three K1 Rekos, the two that are more opaque are lower profile and the one that translucent has a higher shoulder and feels like you described. I don't use K1 for any type of putting, strictly drives and upshots.

I hear you about some of the molds not clicking. I really liked the Berg and Gote but they never held on to a spot.

Tried the Discmania Essence on the recommendation of some locals and it instantly made the bag. The combination of glide and understablity makes these some of the furthest flying discs for my arm speed.

I also dropped the Stal and went back to the Raptor. Fairly comparable in flight but the raptor is much more comfortable for forehand and overhead shots.

The Essence you say...any disc that it’s similar to?

Really not sure what I'd compare it to. Maybe a speed 8 Star Tern that has the glide potential to go almost as far as a Tern.

Read some of the reviews on Infinite Discs and you'll see other people saying how far these go for a speed 8.

My two most consistent discs are my Kaxe and Kaxe Z so I am testing out the Vulture and Undertaker as longer versions of those discs. I've only played two rounds so far with the change but things seem to be working out so far.

Also need to note that the Essence is such a fun disc to throw, goes far and glides forever. I was able to pump out a LHBH turnover to the area of the fairway where the RHBH guys on my card, with decent arms, were reaching with their distance drivers.

Back to the OLF. Seems like I'm throwing all my drivers poorly lately, might as well stick with what I know best.

Messing around and going back to some more Kastaplast discs. Lots and Essence seem to cover the distance I need with my arm speed.
