Ive decided that rather than find a tweener type disc between the FD and PD that would replace both of them, I can actually eliminate the PD and use the FD3 in its place as they both have similar flights.

I took two PDs out of my bag and added another FD3 so basically Ive eliminated one mold and am carrying one less disc.

Tomorrow Ill play a round or two with the FD and FD3 covering fairway duties and see how it goes.
theres no hope

Haha.. I got given an FD3 400 for Xmas from my buddy... it's not gyro but I've been working it in the bag. Nice plastic, good utility disc even at max weight which I'm not a big fan of. Interesting shape to the top and the front of the disc. Top is a weird forced dome and the lip is blunt but angled. Seems like a real mellow, auto correcting kind of disc. Goes straight well even at low power. Kind of throws like my heavy Relay but more stable LSS.

I think I see the appeal, I doubt if I will bag it because of my bias but I will give it a shot against my Craves and Relays and see.

I think for one mold, Eagle-X in a variety of plastics and weights is the way to go.

Teebirds might be better, but you would need to really beat in a DX to make it actually turn consistently.

Or one of the many, many knockoffs of the above lol.

I cannot believe we are 40+ posts into this and no one has postulated the Leopard in various plastics. I've got a CE Leopard in my home bag and my road bag. The originals have been there since they came out! The two CE spares are pristine.

Saint is mine - I've rediscovered the Valk, and discovered the CD2, which also fit the bill.

Hm, what's the most OS Leopard in your experience? Barry 2x Champ?

This wasn't directed at me, but I'll interject with my answer that the Drew Gibson Luster Leopard3 and the regular Glow Champ Leo3 are the most OS amongst my Leo3s of every plastic (including Hannah Leatherman swirly Star and Glow Champ). Probably the Gibson Luster Leo3 is the final answer.

Im guessing youre talking about a Prodigy F3 and not a Discmania FD3.

The FD3 doesnt go straight at low power. It pretty much makes a left turn.

Lat 64 Falchion is another underated stable fairway driver. No better or worse than any other options already given but I do like the opto plastic.
