I can think of one mold, the Teebird. I can't name another fairway driver that's loses it LSF without gaining any turn as it beats up. Its laser straight on a full rip.

I'm not going to miss the TeeRex, if it is going OOP. I will miss the name though. The little kid in me still thinks it's a great name for a disc.

For those who have never seen a TR mold before, feast your eyes. This thing makes my Z Forces feel understable in comparison. Great utility disc if you play fade skips.

The TRX was supposed to be a TeeRex X, but it was less OS than the TR mold, and was re-designated the Wraith X, since it flew closer to a Wraith than a TeeRex. There are Wraith Xs out there with "TRX" on them. The TRX later became the production TeeRex and the TR mold was axed, as it is far too OS for most throwers. TR was also nearly impossible to get down to 175g in Champ plastic. They had to use Blizzard bubbles just to get it molded down to 175g hahahahaha. My TR is a Blizzard Enhanced Champion 175, BTW.

I would go with 25 of your favorite mold for a 20 year span then.

Gives you some room for error.

I was trying out an old Star Teerex with a 2006(?) Wham Bam Thank You Am Stamp, alongside a Star Wraith with the same stamp.

They are a great combination, but I cant justify throwing the Teerex since I'll never find a backup.

I'll quote myself:

The TeeRex-X has since been retooled and that is what would be current production. Current TeeRex-X flies similar to the original blunt nose first run.

Get either the faster Xcal which I carry, or slower Firebird. **** the 'Rex.
Which mold are you hoarding?

Also, no. Like DanJon said as much as I loved three of the 8-9 I owned I gave them up quick once I learned what I just quoted ^there. FWIW after that post I inevitably dropped the Xcal, stuck with just the Banshee, and re-added the Xcal to my bag...only to re-drop it and replace both with a Firebird. I'm indecisive.
