Default All Time Classic Disc Molds?

So I was thinking what disc molds in the last few years will go down as classics. The Thunderbird was the mold I was thinking about, but I am not sure if it would qualify as an all time classic for me, even though I love the mold. To qualify, it should be near universally accept to me a great mold, even if you don't throw it. The Buzzz is qualifies to me even though I don't care for it personally.

The newest disc I could think of that I think absolutely qualifies is the Zone. Maybe the Volt (i know Ion was the first MVP, but it is too derivative of the Wizard which is already deriviative of the BB Aviar) or the FD.

So what discs would you all say are all time classics? Of course many older molds will be nominated, but also try to discuss molds you think will be considered classics in another 10 years.

I will nominate the M4.

I'll just nominate the Shryke. In 10 years, it will be considered a classic.

As to older discs, the Valkyrie comes quickly to mind.

I thought about this as well. Tern, Shryke, DDx,Trespass, Crank, etc. What mold would be the all time classic max distance driver for those with sub 400 ft max? I actually think this may be the hardest to answer, as it is a slot on the flight chart that was only filled in recent years.

I'd agree with the Shryke. That disc is a winner, plain and simple. I also think the Tern fits into that category too.

Shryke
Tern
Thunderbird
Roc3- some may disagree, but this is a very, very good mid.


Older molds:

Destroyer
Buzzz
Valkyrie
Teebird
Leopard- I hate it, but it still seems super popular.
Sidewinder
Firebird
Force
Wraith- I still see tons of these around.
XCaliber

One brand new mold that COULD become a classic is the Kong. Discraft needs to decide on a final product (I hear they're tweaking the prototypes still). Obviously the Kong is only a curiosity at this point.

For DD I agree the Trespass is the closest thing they have to a classic.

Firebird
Destroyer
Valkyrie
Xcaliber

Discraft;
Buzzz
Magnet
Force

Lat64;

DD;
Truth
Trespass
Enforcer
Escape
Felon

Gateway;
Wizard
Warlock
Demon

I forgot the Boss. That would make my list. Still a very popular mold. I think it was also the first speed 13 driver on the market.

Nuke is right there with it. Still very popular even 10 years later.

Agree with the Tern, also, and I should've mentioned it. And in 10 years it may be even more of a Classic than the Shryke.

(side note: just watched the FPO final rd. of the SFO, and the way those ladies were throwing Ballista Pros, it may be DD's contribution to the literature...)
