The 2015 Halloween Star Thunderbirds are some of the most underrated in my opinion. They are more overstable than regular Champ Thunderbirds but with a less dumpy fade than the first run of DX (and more durability). And since so few people bought them, you can still find them pretty easily; looks like there are 3 on eBay right now for fairly reasonable prices. If I didn't have a stack already, I would snap them up.

I recently added a Gstar Thunderbird to my bag as a replacement for a DX which met a rather untimely and quite watery demise. The Gstar Thunderbird is my go-to now. Love the feel, incredible glide, handles the wind really well.
I will admit I still have one DX Thunderbird in the bag for BH placement drives.

I've used one for so long the stamp is almost worn off. I think it's a perfect disc for me, when applicable.

Gstar thundies are legit. I have a non max weight one that flips, but has the late flight OS integrity. My max weight one basically doesn't flip or fade at 330-350 ft. on a flat, nose down release.

Everyone wants a "longer teebird". But if they wouldn't hate on G Star they'd realize it already exists.

I second the volt suggestions. Neutron for a bit more fade, fission for straighter.
