out of the box

tb is a straight to fade

eagle is a turn with fade

my idea was to cycle tb so you had some os ones and once they beat it they will develop turn and still keep some fade and the dx ones are great to start a cycle

out of the box a fresh eagle is "supposed" to fly a certain way which is what you and albatross mentioned however innova isnt too great with consistency thats why some eagles will have lots of turn out of the box and some will fly like firebirds

Depends on the run, but typical Eagles will give some turn after just a few rounds, maybe like an 8/10 sleepy rating. Many of the newer Eagles came out with a small dip in the top near the wing, and that seems to have made them much more overstable.

Mine is Star. In order of most to least stable: Champ>Star>DX
(Or does it just depend on the mold injectors that day)

Star TL3 out of the box is like an 8/5/-.5/1. Baby turn and slightly more fade. Will beat in to like a 8/5/-1/.5

A really beat Eagle should be able to work itself into a -2/2 type of pattern.

If your Prime Maverick was what you wanted before it beat in then a Fuzion or Lucid Maverick should be perfect. Will fly like your Prime one did when new but will take much longer to beat in.

I've never thrown a baseline plastic Maverick, but I have quite a few (5 or 6 maybe) Lucids and they get flippy REALLY quickly compared to most premium plastics. I like them for this. They work fantastic for BH anny shots. A better, albeit, more expensive option is a Lucid X. These start quite a bit more OS but beat in much slower and stay there longer. My first, perfectly seasoned one is living in the creek on hole 18 at Harmony Bends currently.

__I need TWO suggestions__
1) what’s solid off-the-shelf (for right now)
2) what will eventually beat into the best (for long term)
1) DGA pipeline, Discraft Mantis, Discmania FD, Innova Eagle-L (or the Infinite version whatever it's called)

2) another maverick

Just cycle mavericks if you are already familiar with the life cycle of the disc.

I'm not sure you can get them right now or will be able to get them in the future, but how about a Cyclone?

I was going to say what VictorB said. Why not a heavier Maverick?

If you like it already, and you're used to it, why throw different molds or plastic into you bag?

Unless of course you weren't crazy about it to begin with.
