Does anyone have a recommendation on what currently avialable disc model(s) are equivalent to the old mold (CE plastic preferred) Innova Beast.
I'd like replies based on actual experience of throwing old mold Beasts and other models, not just by looking at flight charts. I've done that and my best guess was the Innova Starfire. I bought a Champion Glow Starfire and it does seem to be a good fit, but I'd like others to confirm.
I'm tired of paying top dollar for the OOP Beast.
The OM Beast was retooled because it was too close to the Orc. Start there.
Starfire and Orc and similar in certain plastics or weights with good luck.
Also try the Discraft Z-Crush, compare the rims close up very identical. Crush maybe a tad more overstable, same speed/glide.
I came accross these the other day while shopping. Seems to be same beast you are looking for in champion instead of CE. But the price is right..........
Closest I found were the "Night Shift" Orcs, but you will have the same problem finding them as you do the Pro Line Beast. However, there not as pricey. Not as durable as CE, but I found this Star plastic to be more dense/rigid compared to reg Star plastic. I also found the Viking to be pretty close as well.
If you haven't tried one. I may be willing to part with a 175g Night Shift Orc. I just don't throw that weight anymore.
