I have a couple from the original run and both are slightly less stable than your average S-Line.

Slightly, yes.

Why? Because - collectors.

I wouldn't necessarily call them crappy - they have the least amount of fade of any FD I've tried, and if you put them out at 80 percent power and with a couple degrees of hyzer they would go SUPER far.
I know your question was mostly rhetorical, but they are worth more simply because they are not made anymore.

no i was serious i had no clue why they are now in demand it really makes no sense to me especially with the different runs of fd that are now available

fwiw i liked my domey star jackal stamped fd for bh in the woods but they would be on the mp for 8 shipped and no one would buy them

i hope i still have mine laying around somewhere but its been several years since

Early on I had my farthest throw with a Jackal FD, a monster flex thrown from the javelin pad over a track field. It caught a little gust and picked up 30 feet of vertical before gliding over concessions, crossing the fence and skipping across the road. Still in my top 5 all time.
All that said, I only own one of them now and it's just for nostalgia. Too domey for my taste.

Where can I find an fd that doesn't cost an arm and leg? This is the only disc that is never cheap.

If Disc Golf Center has them in stock, they're pretty reasonably priced.

???

D-line FDs are like $8.

S-line and C-line are probably about $14 or $15.

I think my swirly S-lines with the Jackal stamp were about $18.

Are older runs fetching more or something?

Second run is more overstable and they are really expensive as well
