I think it’s something with the way champ molds have been coming out lately...I got a champ Valkyrie around that same time that was super domey and flies like a Thunderbird.

Maybe I will try out a Discraft Vulture instead.

I own 3 Star, 3 Luster Champion & 1 Glow Champion Thunderbird & they are all flat to mild dome. None of them pop-top. For me it's been a consistent mold in stability.

The one Innova produced mold that I saw serious difference in stability from dome was the S-Line CD2. I had a pop-top that was very OS to start but beat to exactly what I wanted & more true to the flight #'s. Unfortunately I lost it to the forest gnomes but was an amazing FH disc for me. I've bought two S-Line CD2's since that were flat & they are basically Valkyries.

I would love to find a consistent replacement for that OS CD2. Something milder than a Thunderbird but still OS.

A seasoned regular Champ Thunderbird is what I use that fits that description, though mine are all either 3x or penned 4x. Great FH disc, fits the CD2 flight numbers. Seems like the embossed Champs have come out differently.

Default Cd2

Try a RT 1...it’s a less stable Thunderbird but has great glide and fade. Most OS CD2

I've sworn off dull & swirly colored tour discs. I dig that RT stamp though.

Thundervant left happy holidays thunderbird that has been used two rounds on the right. The Thundervant is jolly launcher and has new tooling for a thunderbird. The thundervant has a very high parting line.
