On the suspect, yes. It's not really overstable like a zone. It's more like an overstable teebird. Crank on it and it goes straight with fade and into a strong wind, it just goes straight. I use these in place of ghosts because how it flies in the wind. Ghosts aren't great into winds.

I've only used the same 2 Biofusion Escapes. They remind me of the older soft P PDs. Great glide, sneaky long, little turn and a little fade.

Suspects and Escapes are fantastic.

Suspect is a short midrange with overstable goodness. It will go very straight for a while then start with a hefty, long fade. Thrown softly it will fade early and hard. Thrown full power it rides the fade over the last 1/3 of it's flight. I love it when something like the Truth is going to be too long. Also, it forehands beautifully so I use it as my go-to approach disc.

The Escape is my all time favorite disc. It's the furthest reliable disc in my bag right now. I can get random shots with faster discs to go further, but I am much more consistent with the Escape than anything faster. It flies like a speed 10 distance-wise, but it's definitely a speed 9 power-requirement-wise. I don't find the Escape to be much like a PD in flight. They feel identical in the hand, but in flight the PDs are more overstable. The Escape has a small amount of turn (-1 with no wind) and a medium fade (-2). The PDs have less turn and more fade in my experience. Escapes don't do well in a big headwind though, which is why PDs are a nice compliment to them. If the winds get too heavy switch to a PD. If it's calm, throw the Escape.

The G* are a kinda domey 175 that's Luke the old pink DGRs and a flat 168 that's like the old soft Ps. You can mash on both and they just go straight with some fade. More so with the 175. I absolutely love them.

As for Destroyers, mostly a 167 Star. Also bag a 171 echo for flippy stuff and a 175 Wiggins for overstable stuff. Bearly throw the last 2
