Reapers were good. I liked a lot those. I think Firebird is somethere between Reaper and Talon. Didn't Discraft make new run of those????

I think they did a limited Big Z run a year or two ago.

Many don't like the Predator for forehands (myself included). I carry one, but its only thrown for backhands hyzers and to fight the wind. I have been using the Vulture for my forehands. If I had a better FH I would probably give the DGA Hellfire a shot. I've carried a Flick and its a meat hook. I only used mine for extremely windy days, occasional thumber, and to get out of a jam. Because it is such a meat hook I like the lighter 165-169 gram weights in it.

The 150 class ones are pretty nice, do everything that their heavier brothers do except make your arm hurt just looking at them.

I bought a Z Archer, 178g, a couple weeks ago. All I got to say is this thing rocks. Yesterday, I hit a downhill tunnel shot, 340 ft, that requires a turnover/flex line..... Ace!

The Archer has less turn and less fade than the numbers say...but I have only thrown a heavy Z, so YMMV

Pretty sure I've settled on the Avenger SS as my roller disc. Finally. It's shaped quite similar and flies very similar to a Mongoose off the shelf. Probably not a coincidence? Bag is about as set in stone as it gets now.

The Focus is really underrated...anybody throw the Crystals from Ledgestone (last year, I think)?

My other non-Discraft discs are Wraith, Warship and Wizard. I like them equally well for their niches (Wizard is locked in as putting putter)

In order Surge, Buzzz and Focus would be adequate replacements for what you currently throw.
