The Jawbreaker plastic gets a bit sticky past 90-95 F and is not that great for a plastic at that tepature. I would go with the slightly floppy soft X plastic Challenger to avoid that problem. My Jawbraker Magnets could have been a fluke. I am thinking about trying or feeling the Titanic a taller profile Magnet in the Proline in a store to see if it is the right plastic and not too tall a profile. If Proline is like X either soft or regular then it is a go, if Proline is like ESP then no go for a putter.

What do you mean by "slick"? The one problem I have with Jawbreaker is that dust adheres to it. It's the reverse problem of elite z. When z gets wet you need to dry it off for any kind of grip. Not so with jawbreaker. But get some dust on it and it feels covered in graphite and you need to wipe it off to get a grip.

What would be a good compliment to my vultures. Love their straight to fade lines. What's a good under stable disc to go with it

If you want to stick with Discraft, the Heat is in the same speed category. But the one Heat I have isn't all that flippy for me. Never thrown a Mantis, but it might be a good option.

Depending on your range/power, try an ESP Undertaker, or a Z Avenger SS. Neither are quite as long as the Vulture, but both have more glide and less LSS. The Undertaker is the more overstable of those two options, but they are pretty straight with clean form, whereas the AvSS will exhibit some turn, especially with torque.

Why hasn't Discraft come out with an OS fairway? Something like a Resistor or beefy Teebird type mold in the speed 6/7?

Big gap between Drone/BuzzzOS & Predator.

Disagree, there's not really a lot of gap between speed 5 and 9 in the overstable category.

Definitely depends on your power. I would say if your throwing the Vulture 400ft then get a Mantis for a compliment. If your in the 350ft and under range I would say get a Heat.
