I love Gravity. It's like old Pro (but not slick like KC Pro). Beats in slowly and has great grip right out of the box. Excel also feels good, but it starts out a tick more understable and gets flippy pretty quick. I started with one of each and when my Gravity got workable enough, I kicked out the Excel and started cycling the Gravities.

I’m throwing Gravity and Protege. Gravity Ghosts feel like old-school DX Rocs to me. For a baseline plastic it is taking forever to get flippy. Great grip in all conditions. The Protege Ghosts are fairly domey and feel like KC Rocs but pretty straight out of the box. If you flatten them they will fly a little faster and have a bit more turn, but stay the same stability for a while too.

Shop has FR pinnacle ghosts for $20. Is it a good pickup at that price? Really like the icon ghost I got recently.

I just added another Legacy disc with funny money, Patriot, and it's turning out to be exactly what I wanted there, and may have kicked out a couple of other molds. That makes two in my bag, and Hunter is my favorite putting putter of all time. I do also have an Outlaw which I could make work, but just isn't necessarily better than what I have in the max D stable slots.

So, with that, what other molds from legacy really shine compared to the competition? I am not a brand loyalist, and have an extremely mixed bag. I just really like the plastic, and if it fits, will try to add more Legacy.

I've had a lot of success with the Rival as my workhorse fairway driver. You could definitely try pairing one up with the Patriot you are enjoying.

Most Legacy molds are directly interchangeable with some other mold from another company. I throw Outlaws, Rivals, Patriots, Ghosts. The Outlaw is a direct replacement for Destroyers, Rivals for Teebirds, Ghosts for Rocs. I could switch back to Innova at any point without skipping a beat.

I think if you ask most Legacy loyalists what the "must have" molds are, you'll hear a lot of Rival and Phenom. But to me, the Rival is pretty much interchangeable with the Teebird/Teebird3 depending on the run. It feels and flies pretty much the same in my experience. The Phenom is like a slightly faster TL and it doesn't really fit into my bag setup.

The new Pursuit is pretty sweet, it's like a Buzzz OS. I wouldn't say it's head and shoulders above the competition, there are a ton of great overstable mids out there now. But it's a great disc in Legacy plastic. Just picked one up in Glow and it feels/flies amazing.

To me, the big draw of Legacy is the plastic, not the molds.

Agree, on the plastic. They produce less discs and can put more effort into quality control using great plastics vs. just push it through the machine that Innova employs.

When did Legacy start molding their own discs?
