Default Villain vs xxx vs firebird for thumbers

I know thr xXx and firebird are similar for OH shots. I just read a description of the villain as being a good disc for OH shots. Has anyone who has thrown the villain comment on its similarity to the other two?

I have both. Only limited throws with the Villian for thumbers but I think I prefer the XXX. I'm going to bring them both out again this weekend and try throwing both on the same shots to see which one does better for me.

Sorry to slightly derail, but you [everyone, not just OP] do throw overhand with stable/understable discs too...right?

Haven't thrown the Villian yet but between the Firebird and the xXx I prefer the latter. Honestly the Champ Banshee/beat ESP Surge is my favorite OH combo on the market, but I couldn't justify keeping one of both in the bag just for thumbers/hammers.

I used to only use FBs for OH shots. I have now been with champ Banshees for about 1.5 years. Love them I will use a xXx for super slow OHs too.

Got a Villian last week and I will compare the three next time I'm out playing.

I primarily throw OH thumbers - most of my courses are wooded (defined fairways, not unfairly wooded) and I can throw the OH shot with more consistency and accuracy then my BH shots. I am working on them, but cannot trust them. I throw FBs to get distance. I throw Beasts and Valks OH as well, depending on the path, distance, etc. I have yet to throw a xXx. That will probably be my next disc purchase, but then I read the statement about the villain and just wanted to get the communities feedback. I guess the context of the question is OH throws for max D - how does the villain stack up?
