Default Switching from Innova to Swedish plastic!!

I need to know which molds are the closest to the ones I currently throw. I like the feel of latitudes plastic a lot better than anything innova has ever put out except maybe XG but that's neither here nor there since its hard to come by in all the molds that I throw. The molds I need compared are:
Drone (I know it's discraft but I'd still like a comparison)
Meteor( same as above)

And before you all tell me to go to inboundsdiscgolf.com, I already have, I would just prefer first hand experience over reading some numbers on a screen. And also I don't carry all the high speed stuff in my bag at once I switch out the boss, wraith, and destroyer based on course and wind conditons being that I live in Kentucky I usually have the destroyer, so I'd say the destroyer is my got to high speed driver but my best distance is with my beat to $#_+ echo star wraith. Westside, latitude 64, and dynamic discs are all acceptable.

You are going to miss your Destroyer, XCal, and Teebird. Some of Latitude's stuff doesn't feel too good either...

Have fun buying new stuff. Variety is the spice of life?

Destroyer - Try Trespass
Boss - Halo or Havoc
Xcal - ??? (not familiar with xcal)
Wraith - No replacement...I tried :P The wraith is just a great disc heh. Maybe a sword or flow would take the spot.
Firebird - XXX
Teebird - A stag maybe?
Leopard - Rivers for the win!
Roc - Mace maybe? or possibly a pain
Drone - ??? I don't they the sweds/finns have a mid that os, aside from the trident, but that's more driver like.
Meteor - Tursas or Fuse.

Im sure it could be better, but I hope this helped just a bit.

Boss - Havoc
Xcal - Villain
Destroyer - Halo
Wraith - Flow
FireBird - XXX
TeeBird - Striker
Leopard - River
Roc - Pain
Drone (I know it's discraft but I'd still like a comparison) - Trident
Meteor( same as above) - Fuse

Certainly none of those are going to be exactly the same, but should get you pretty close.

Boss = Giant
Xcal = Villain
Seasoned Destroyer = Trespass
Wraith = not sure
Firebird = XXX
TeeBird = Escape
Leopard = River
Roc = Mace
Drone = Trident
Meteor = Tursas

This is my experience from switching. You won't regret the switch. Swedish plastic is the bomb.

Damn Sid the Kid, drink your prune juice. You seem constipated.

Boss-Maybe a Villain or beat in gold line giant
Xcal-get a beefy VIP Giant, longer but will hold up to any wind like the xcal
Destroyer-depends on wear stage but Trespass is the way to go. From OS in Biofuzion to lucid that turns more. Amazing mold.
Wraith- DD lucid Renegade. Easily pairs with the trespass and is close to a wraith. Maybe more turn but also more fade and more glide.
FireBird-Get a gold line XXX or Trident. XXX will be slightly longer.
TeeBird-you can search for a striker that holds up like a bird but I'd try the DD Escape. It's a little faster and easier to turn but you can find bio ones that are pretty beefy and will wear nicely. Lucid is more like a Valk but the two plastics pair nice. If that doesn't work try a Westside Stag.
Leopard-Easy. Tournament plastic Underworld from Westside. A leopard on steroids that will glide and hold an anny line to the ground. Love these
Roc-if you like flat and beefy rocs try a Mace or Suspect. If you like domier and less stable maybe a Fugitive from DD.
Drone (I know it's discraft but I'd still like a comparison) Nothing really the same but tons that will cover the shots. Suspect is OS but very straight. You might find it covers most of your drone shots but if not you will already have a XXX or trident. The baseline plastic Mace might be good here too.
Meteor( same as above) Another easy westside replacement. Tournament plastic Tursas. I loved the meteor but the tursas is the better meteor. Dead straight with hyzer, holds the turn when thrown flat. Glides for miles.
