I'd try a Champ banshee as a replacement. The only thing that is kinda similar is a Discraft Talon but it's OOP so why bother. Firebirds, XXXs, Predators are close but more overstable and faster. Tsunamis is similar but faster. Tridents are just strange. Haven't tried a Warrior, but still I'd stick with a banshee. It's a solid overstable driver.

I pretty much agree with this...Tsunamis LOVE snap and need speed, they're like jittery predators.

I really like the Talon and I might keep use mine to replace my banshee if I ever lose it...but to me the BEST disc to replace your banshee with is...

KC Pro Banshee

BAM!

I always found Banshees to be shorter and more overstable than a Firebird or a Predator. In fact; to me they seem to be a true overstable thats similar to what a Flick does with speed, only the Banshee is quite a bit slower. Slower than the Firebird and Pred also.

If you really liked where the Banshee was, you probably should just get another Banshee and start beating it in, even if you do try another disc; because I think you will be just putting off what already is going to be a process.

try a dx viper for a immediate fill the void hole. its slower than a banshee so if you reef on it it goes dead-nuts straight, especially when you beat one in (this happens relatively quick with dx ones). I use mine exclusively for tight, low tunnel shots up to 350....park city utah (almost) every time.

I recently evolved from Banshee to Firebird and have not looked back. The firebird holds up better when you overpower it when flicking. It's also better into the very strong headwinds. Even though it's a 9 speed disc it still has that shorter fairway driver feel like a Banshee.

I used to throw the Banshee, and champ Banshee, and I have found the Discraft Crush to fly similar, but gives you more hook and skip at the end of the flight.
