Valk won't be stable enough, Champ Glow or otherwise. An SOLF was recommended earlier, I'd recommend the QOLF personally...will break in more slowly and often has a bit more overall stability. They'll drift more than the PD or Thunderbird did for you which may keep your line straighter for longer, still with a consistent fade.

I’m disappointed nobody’s bumped the Force thread.

In my mind, something in the 9 or 10 speed rim size that will handle winds well but wont be a meat hook on a clam day would be ideal. I was bagging PDs for this role and they handled wind well but the three I have dont have much glide and tend to have more low speed stability and fade than I want. The Thunderbird was better but for some reason I just didnt click with it and had issues with release angles.

The closest Ive come to being happy with this spot in my bag was maybe an Escape or Instinct.

My vote for Discmania s-line CD2, enough stability to fight some wind, familiar and not too large rim, I think they go pretty well with FD's.

Looks like I should have time today before tags to audition a few discs to fill the spot.

Going to hit the field with some familiar and unfamiliar ones and see what clicks.

Ill be throwing the following.

FD2
CD2
Felon
PD
Vulture
Thunderbird
Teebird 3
Instinct
Beast

Not sure about the Beast but well see.

Hopefully throwing them all side by side will help me narrow things down.

For something different, maybe an axiom wrath? Mines a moderately os flier, pretty much straight to fade, handles wind just fine (even my 157 proton).

As someone said above, the td is really good disc, in c-line it is much more stable than the numbers indicate.
